Thank you for the support that made it possible for us to publish for so long. We are honored to be part of the bike community.
Cycling West and Cycling Utah is proud to have completed 25 years of bringing you news and information on cycling in the Intermountain West. Founded in 1993 as Cycling Utah by David Ward and Bob Truelsen, the legacy of their creation continues. In 2016, we became Cycling West in the region, while keeping the name Cycling Utah in the Beehive State.
The Winter 2017 issue is our 199th edition. We have published 8 times a year, except in 2002 when due to the Olympics, we ran 7 issues.
Our mission with Cycling West is to grow, connect, and inform the cycling community by providing great content and resources for cyclists, athletes, and bike shops. Over the winter, and in the next year, look for more great coverage, new programs, new opportunities to contribute cycling news and stories, and new ways to sponsor and support Cycling West and Cycling Utah.
We look forward to being part of the community for another 25 years!
