    Bicycling Magazine 3.99 per year

    Found this over on Road Bike Review Site.

    http://m.bensbargains.net/deal/one-y...-tanga-299153/

    I signed up with the code and ordered 4 years for $16.

    Sorry if this is a repost.

    Thanks

    If you join your local IMBA chapter they will send you a free subscription. Was supposed to be a 6 month "trial" but it's been 3 years and the issues haven't stopped coming.

    Been there. I figured I'd let my sub expire so I didn't renew. But Rodale likes to play a 'auto renew' game. They got nasty when I didn't pay for the magazines I didn't even ask for.

    Well... They don't have a credit card, or bank account number. They've sent me dozens of renewal notices that I've ignored and I keep getting the magazine.

    You will probably see a collections notice. Seen that too.

    With the IMBA membership freebie, you will get a bunch of renewal notices. But they keep sending you the magazine even if you ignore the notices. I assume they need the distribution in order to get/keep advertisers.

    Yep, just keep getting it free with my IMBA membership. Been free the last few years.

    That is wrong of them. These "automatic" annual renewals can get ridiculous. It's like Gym memberships in the 90s lol

    Not impressed with the mag. I had a deal on Bicycling and their mountain bike one. I really only wanted the mountain bike one but they ended up only sending me Bicycling. Then when the subscription ended they tried to auto renew but luckily I had a new CC card so it didn't go thru. Shoddy tactics from them and I would stay away.

    Seriously, Bicycling isn't even worth 3.99 a year.
