You may need to adjust your settings to allow you to 'quote'. Forget how I did it, but no doubt some geek on here will sort you out.

Perhaps that should be "informed" rather than educated!

Without doubt its the best magazine on the market. It far out does any of the European publications that I have cotributed to over the years. It may sound expensive due to the lousy exchange rate at the moment, but I consider it money well spent.

I say, old chap, Waitrose Wink

Mind you, even our local Co-op now has the comic on it's shelves.

Alan *CENSORED* turned it (the comic) around in the 60s, Martin Ayres' reign wasn't too bad but Sutcliffe was the pits and the present regime are not interested in the domestic scene at all.

Admittedly most news and results can be found on line but a well written report on a race with one or two pics can be treasured.

Cool

While agreeing with most. perhaps all. the criticisms of the comic for the past number of years I hsve stuck with it and in the past six monthis discern a big return to domestic coverage and interesting innovations. Perhaps the new acting editor Simon Richardson appointed a few weeks ago, can take the credit.

Take longer to peruse it the next time you visit your favourite supermarket. I have always maintained my subscription since I started my journalist career there as a trainee rather a long time ago. But there were a number of years when I told myself I was buying rubbish.

This does what the classic Cycling Weekly did but better.

Would be good if it championed the TT scene a bit more.
