They're constantly spamming me and ringing me up because I run a cycling business. They're a menace and I wouldn't go near them.

To the OP, I can give you various contact details from the endless emails they've sent me, although when I reply and say leave me alone I never hear anything from them and the spam keeps coming. I may have a phone number or two.
One link to your website is enough. G

Anyone seen the March 2018 copy? A printed one, that is, not digital. Just interested to know if it has been printed, or as seems possible from this thread, not printed. Thanks

I believe the people behind this site are the old editorial and writing team of Cycling World:

Certainly Steve Dyster ws involevd with the mag in the past - and a quick look at the website suggests that a lot of the (so called) content is lifted from old CW mags - but I may be wrong

I was surprised to see this terrible chestnut rear it's very ugly head again. I along with many others on this forum and no doubt elsewhere had no end of battles with this disgusting bunch of rogues. That is the polite version of what I really think.
Strangely enough I have been thinking of them recently as my son and I bought tickets to the Cycle show at the NEC. This is where a couple of years I first met this magazine and a couple of the staff.

My intention was to see if they were there with a stand promoting their wares. I have to say I completely forgot to look for them yesterday when I went to the show. Being the kind christian charitable fellow I am I thought I would get a cup of hot coffee and go to the stand and then ask my son ( who is ignorant of the battles I had and his stupid dad's thoughts ) to accidentally knock into me so I would then spill my coffee over the hopefully present Mr Colin Woolley. He doesn't know what I look like. Alas my cunning childish plan never came to fruition. They made me so mad I really wanted my ounce of flesh.

I have to say I did receive compensation eventually from them but I was totally appalled by the deplorable way they dealt with my issues and that of others.
So all I would say to anyone contemplating dealing with Cyclig World ( If the still have the same team running the show) is good luck. Just a look back at this forum will tell you that you could be in for a lot of fun!!!!

Weirdly their Facebook page has a posting from February saying "Cycling world has been acquired by BLAZE watch this space for further updates", accompanied by a logo. https://www.facebook.com/cyclingworldma ... 614578754/

The Blaze logo appears to be that of a Canadian basketball team. http://pulsebasketballleague.ca/team/blaze/

I also thought some of the content had been recycled. I think I recognised some of the other contributors' names too.

I'm presuming that CW is now an ex-magazine - certainly I've not seen a copy around in ages.
