    4-0 out of 5 stars Monthly Motivation
    Runner's world is a very traditional magazine with geared towards mostly a middle-aged audience. The authors manage to give the same advice every month and make it sound different. That may be one of the things that makes this magazine so motivational. I keep reading about people who have run every day for the last fifty years or who run in 30 below weather, and I wonder what's keeping me off the roads.

    The Rave Run two page spread photographs are lovely. They each show a runner in a really cool environment with a quote. I have some of them hanging on my wall. I get especially motivated by the one of a man running through the woods when the trees are coated with ice and the ground blanketed with snow. It looks so beautiful, who wouldn't want to go out and run. The ask the expert or Q&A section has the most diverse and informative information from month to month mostly because the questions come from readers and the answers come for a variety of experts. The nutrition section isn't particularly useful. The science seems simplified to the point that it isn't exactly true, and the suggested menu for one of the carbohydrate dinners starts out with 1 cup broiled swordfish along with five or six other things; not really practical in my opinion.

    Runner's World has a nice coverage of racing events past (results) and future (racing calendars), and my hometown of Boulder, CO is mentioned somewhere at least once per issue :). Runner's World encourages everyone to be a winner even if he or she doesn't finish first. It is full of tips for beginners just staring to run and more advance information about training for seasoned amateurs. Some of the information is useful and some is not, but there is enough useful information to make reading worthwhile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Real Motivator and Educator
    I've been reading Runner's World for about three years now. It seems that whenever my motivation hits an all time low another magazine will end up in my mailbox. After reading half of the magazine I am forced to put on my running shoes and hit the streets.

    There are many educational benefits I receive from these magazines. I enjoy their training tips to help me improve my running time. I enjoy their list of races in the back of issue so I can plan what I want to run next in my geographic area.

    Most importantly, I highly appreciate the safety tips that are included. Running can be very hard on your body, as most of my cross country team learned in high school. This should become standard reading for high school students. I wish my coach had gone through an issue every month with us, highlighting how to run safely while diminishing run times.

    If you run, get this magazine. If you don't run but would like to, visit their educational web page to get an idea how to start and then subcribe to the magazine so, like me, you are reminded to get off your duff and hit the streets.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Only one issue's experience
    I bought the issue because I was told there was an article about beginning runners training for their first half marathon. The article was mentioned on the cover. It turned out to be a fluff piece giving reasons why it was better to run a half marathon than a full one for your first long race. I didn't find a lot more depth. Motivational, some general ideas, but I didn't come away with a lot of technical information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Your Best Friend
    Sometimes you need a friend to help you out the door and to motivate you to start your running program. This magazine did exactly that for me. Along with its thorough web-site, runnersworld.com, I started a running program that took me from running two minutes at a time to running a 5K (3miles) in twenty-two minutes in only fifteen weeks. Unlike many other magazines, this one does not over burden you with excessive advertisements and random space fillers. All articles are helpful and cover a broad spectrum of practical and entertaining subjects. The best magazine I have ever encountered, you won't be able to put it down!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Education, motivation, how to and information
    Doesn't get much better than this. This magazine knows its focus and cuts right to the chase. Nothing extraneous here, solely about running. Great shoe reviews and good how-to especially for beginners. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Really pretty sad...
    This is a pretty sad magazine. It's like Seventeen for cyclists really. I can't believe i used to actually take it seriously. Fortunately i know better now, but sheesh. It's just stupid and worthless info that is only occasionally compensated for by good pictures of new bikes. If you want to see new bikes, go to your local bike shop and actually ride them. Don't buy a magazine. The advice is stupid to the point of almost being gossip. Try Cyclesport if you like to follow racing... i have no suggestions for just all around road biking, however.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Still very good
    I'm not sure how many (25?)years I've been reading this magazine but it continues to be the "bible" of cycling enthusiasts. It is slanted more towards the road rider as opposed to the mountain biker but they do publish a partner magazine entitled Mountain Bike. I've had many on and off again subscriptions only to return to reading or fantasizing about the latest toys and people's adventures on bikes. This is the time to gear up! You may see the cyclosaurus out and about in their colorful spandex outfits, bronzed bodies in all shapes and sizes, grazing on a protein energy bar or sipping a carb loaded drink as they motor through traffic propelled by their own energy. Or you might see the cyclosaurus counterpart off road in a more trendy, lined baggy shorts and t-shirt, sipping from a hydration pak on their backs as they kick up dust barreling down an exhilirating single track. In any event this is the time of year when weekend warriors become Lance Armstrong or Dotsie Cowden. The magazine for the cyclosaurus is Bicycling because of it's informative tidbits of information that tells you where the best organized rides are, the latest product developments, training and nuitrition tips and the exciting outdoor adventures that can only be experienced on bike. One of the mainstay features are bike recommendations that can run the gamut from a cool $3-$5k to the more sensible priced deals at around $1,500. Whether you want to know about the latest road shoes available, bibs, shorts, helmets, tandems, tape, tires, cages, bottles, sunglasses, tools, timers or trainers, it is all here for the cyclosaurus. Recommended for bike riders everywhere, as Willie Nelson once sang, it just might get you back "on the road again."

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not What it Used to Be...
    Years ago, I used to be a staunch reader of Bicycling (even when it had that ridiculous exclaimation point in the title). Unfortunately, I have to agree with most of the reviewers here, the content has declined dramatically. Mostly fluff, and reviews that don't have much merit.

    Too bad, the cycling market has seen a solid rejuvination in the last few years and the market is primed for a good, USEFUL publication, unfortunately Bicycling isn't it.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A long downhill ride...
    Having regularly read "Bicycling" for many years (even when it was called "Bicycling!" in a tasteless 1970s way), I find it surprising to see how much the quality of the magazine has declined. In spite of all those people spending huge amounts of money on fancy equipment, "Bicycling" has become thinner and thinner. It has recently improved somewhat, after most of the editorial staff was fired, and a sign is the dropping of the truly horrible marginal comments (Bike Love and so forth) but it is only suitable for real neophytes. Unfortunately, there is no other single magazine that covers racing, bike touring, test reviews, technique and fitness in North America, no matter how poorly. The articles are very short and sometimes, well, just stupid. There is very little on cycling destinations or serious equipment tests. The photography remains decent, but compared to the German magazine "Tour," for example, "Bicycling" is a pretty sad effort. If you can read this, you have access to the Internet, which means you have far better sources of information to draw on. I am letting my subscription lapse and advise you to save your money. A big disappointment, "Bicycling" has not advanced with its readers.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Used to be better...
    For what it is, this magazine is OK -- a short digest of info for dilettantes. It has been "dumbed down" (please don't take that term too perjoratively) recently to attract a wider spectrum of readers, it would seem. It still has some useful info and is in my opinion worth the inexpensive subscription price.
    But hard-core cyclists may want to try a different magazine.
    I would prefer more (and more detailed) product reviews, maintenance tips, advice/tips. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Running Times is the runner's best resource
    I am writing because I believe the most recent review of Running Times paints an inaccurate picture of the magazine. From my perspective, Running Times is a much better resource than Runner's World for serious runners, serious athletes, AND the rest of us who are serious ABOUT our running.

    My experiences with Runner's World make me think about the thousands of people who "run" road races all across the United States. I put run in quotes because there are plenty of people who run races to finish the race, very noble goal. Runner's World provides quick suggestions for making longer races interesting (i.e. take a camera on a secenic race course and take some pictures). Great idea to get people out for races, but not a good idea for someone who wants to improve their race time. Gallowalking will get you to the finishline, but if you have been training appropriately, it will not drop your race times.

    My experiences with Running Times tend to make me think of those people who want to drop a minute from their 5k PR. Whether you are running 21 minute 5k's or running 16 minute 5k's, Running Times will provide runners who are interested in improving their running with the information they need to improve. Pete Pfitzinger in particular brings an incredible wealth of scientific and real-world training and racing knowledge to each issue of the magazine.

    I highly recommend Running Times to anyone who is serious ABOUT their running.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I prefer Runner's World
    As I write this review, there are only two reviews of Running Times right now and I feel like I need to add my two cents. A big reason I subscribed to Running Times was based on these two positive reviews.

    I subscribed to Runner's World before I had ever heard of Running Times. I wanted even more motivation to get out there and run distance, so I subscribed to both. Running Times concentrates too much on athlete runners and "destination spots" to run... like Hawaii or the Rocky Mountains, places that have beautiful pictures but are of no interest to me and my running. Furthermore, Running Times concentrates on individual races and results with more detail than I care for. I really don't need a one-page article on the Chicago marathon. I find the occasional article about eating better or training for a better 5k/10k/marathon in Running Times, but those articles are pretty sparse.

    I grab an issue of Runner's World and it's the complete opposite. I get information about training, eating, injury prevention, stretching, etc. It has the same kind of race calendar as Running Times for the 5 and 10k's that I want to run. It's information that I can use as a runner. If you'd rather get information about how to improve YOUR running and not stories about running, stick with Runner's World.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great advise and prevention magazine
    Running Times is one of two running magazines we subscribe to. It offers some valuable and well tested advise for the novice and well as the seasoned runner, on diet and injury prevention and care after the fact. I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in running.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For the serious runner on any level
    "Running Times" is for runners who compete either against others, or who simply have a great desire to run well.

    Well written, and cleanly organized, you'll read about the training methods of top runners, and the top techniques for meeting a specfic goal.

    Marathoners and 5Kers will find that there is a lot to be learned from each other's distance, and they'll have the chance here.

    For stats junkies, the people who love to read who won the Juniper Days 5K in Upper Nowhere City... oh, the feast you will have! As a stats junkie myself, I thumb through the times quickly before devouring every detail.

    I fully recommend this magazine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ride BMX Review
    I personally think this is the best BMX magazine out there. It's a great price, and it's filled with great articles and pictures. It is good for anyone that likes biking, or just wants something to read.

    I highly suggest this magazine to anyone.
