Road Bike Action Magazine will expand to nine issues

Road Bike Action will have a fresh copy out to readers every 30 days starting with the 2009 Tour of California issue and then for the following six months, to be followed by three bi-monthly issues in the fall.

The magazine's expansion to nine issues in 2009 is a testament to Road Bike Action Magazine's commitment not only to its readers but also to its loyal advertisers. These additional issues will support the increase in demand for Road Bike Action Magazine and take advantage of the aggressive push that its new distributor, Curtis Circulation Company (the largest distributor of magazines in the U.S. and Canada), has put in place with Road Bike Action.

Road Bike Magazine's newsstand growth is exceeding all projections, and Curtis has just increased the number of newsstand outlets displaying RBA by another 25-percent, beginning with the January 2009 issue (which is printing this week). The magazine's paid subscriber base has exceeded 10,000 copies, with a very high percentage of renewal subscriptions.
