What's happened to Australian Cyclist Magazine?

For years I've enjoyed getting the "Australian Cyclist" magazine as part of my BISA life-membership. A few months back a soppy flower-power rag called "Treadlie" started appearing instead. As far as I'm concerned the content of "Treadlie" is totally not worth reading, and a bit of an insult to those of us who think cycling has a serious fun future.

The "Australian Cyclist" website is still calling for subscriptions, though I notice it's moved out of Bicycle NSW, and operates out of an office in Melbourne. There hasn't been a new issue since March-April.

Can anyone tell me what's happened?

I asked BISA to raise the magazine issue at its recent AGM. I also dislike Treadlie. I prefer Australian Cyclist to Treadlie but obviously some on the BISA committee disagree. I emailed that BikeVic's RideOn magazine would be preferable to Treadlie. That BikeVic does cycling advocacy and organises the Super Tuesday Count in SA. I also asked that if the Treadlie magazine, could members veto receiving this magazine and have membership fees decreased. Told no.

It was discussed clearly keeping all of the people happy all of the time is a challenge.

As I understand Australian Cyclist is still being published.

The website does not feature the current edition.

If you want to subscribe to other magazines contact the various publishers.

The Mitcham Library has a subscription if money is an issue.

I must admit I don't enjoy the replacement hence I took out a subscription for Aus Cyc. However if memory serves me correctly the potential change over was reported in the BISA newsletter and comment was welcomed but I'm guessing that nobody could be bothered.
