adventure bike rider issue 1

1. Print: You can buy a single issue or treat yourself to a print subscription so each issue will get delivered to your door for just £18. The cost includes postage and saves you 40% on newsagent prices. EU and Rest of World prices include airmail postage.

Our subscribing system is the easiest in the world (don’t believe us? Try it). NB All subs will start with the next available issue - Issue 40. If you're not ready for a subscription yet you can buy a single copy of our current issue (issue 39) below.

You can also use our subscription service to buy the perfect gift - a subscription to Adventure Bike Rider magazine.

Digital subscription: Alternatively, if you want to read the magazine on the move you can sign up to a digital subscription through the Apple Store or Google Play to get all new issues on your smartphones and tablets.

This includes new issues as they become available. The membership lasts a year and you can find more information and sign up at www.adventurebikerider.co.uk.

WTF?
0
I'd subscribe for a year in support of this new mag, but why would you charge 2.4 times the amount for us lot out of the UK? Postage to Oz ain't that much - especially for 4 issues.
gazza , July 10, 2010
Could not agree more, WTF?
Alun
Hi Gazza, nothing would please me more than to bring down the cost for you and all other overseas readers however the 'air mail' postage charges are fixed, out of my hands, and expensive. The current postage charges to Oz for our other title (Adventure Travel) hovers around £8 per issue at the Post Office. I know so because I pay the bills.

One way to reduce this cost is to send non airmail but that could mean a magazine taking anything up to 8 weeks to arrive and a 10% chance of it getting lost in the post – a lot of postmen read Adventure Travel on the cheap.

The other way is the economies of scale of bulk deliveries – take out 1000 subs, and I'm sure I could negotiate that price down for you.

The Royal Mail are the biggest benefactors when it comes to magazine subscriptions. Period.
Maybe a digital sub is the answer?

Either way I hope you stick around on this site.

There come a time in life you have to make that big leap of faith, perhaps this is that time. And hell, at £5.75 if you don't like the mag you still have some cheap toilet paper - I'd let the ink settle a little first though.

Welcome to the site a yank in Germany, head on over to the forum and introduce yourself we could do with a few more skinflints over there.

We send out all mags within 24 hours of receiving the order so no probs with getting one before the 30th. Current publishing dates are July (done), Oct, Jan, April. Those dates will change when we go bi-monthly, but not for a while.

How much to get in Canada?

All prices are at the top of this page - single issue £9.50, subscription £24

An update on digital subscriptions - they will happen but I'm not able to give a date just now.

Pay Pal Stinks.
Mr Toad
Hi the site looks great, I wish to subscribe to the magazine, however PayPal will not pay the £10 despite there being money in the PayPal account and they have my credit card details. Why do you have to use PayPal, if you have a PayPal account you can't even bypass the PayPal bit and use a credit card because as soon as you put in you email address (which you have to do) they identify that you have an account. Round and Round I go. I don't have the code they are asking for and don't use internet banking so I can't access the code without my paper bill. PayPal is never easy, I would rather just pay you with a credit card even if you charge extra to cover the transaction. PayPal stinks, sorry to rant, but computers etc are meant to make it easy for us. Hopefully some time soon I will be able to pay and receive my magazine as I don't seem able to find it in the shops. Cheers Mr Toad.
Mr Toad , August 14, 2010

Alun
Hi Mr Toad
Sorry to hear you've had a frustrating experience, I've cut and pasted my answer to another subscriber below which explains why we use paypal. In your post above you mention a 'code' which paypal ask for, I'm not sure I understand what you mean there, as far as I'm aware when I use my paypal account to pay on-line I'm just asked for my email and password. Would you mind explaining?

ABR is currently on sale in most all W H Smiths plus many, many independent newsagents throughout the UK.

Regards

Alun

we thought long and hard about the Paypal subscription method and guessed that it would not suit everyone – I don't think there's a system that does?

The long and short of it is, for a small publishing company the administration of subscriptions can be very, very time consuming, enough to deflect resources away from the product and into the paper chase. Our decision to use the Paypal system was based on our 15 years experience of administrating subscriptions with Adventure Travel magazine and was chosen in no small part to make the process for subscribers and ABR as slick and efficient as possible.

On a practical note, I understand your concerns and here's my commitment to you and all other potential subscribers who have had a bad experience with Paypal...If you subscribe to ABR via Paypal and experience a problem, if I can't sort that problem within 48 hours then we'll give you a free subscription when we do sort it.

Thanks again and well done.

Subscription price, etc

Hi, I have just picked up a copy of Issue 2, I unfortunately missed Issue 1, but I love the mag.

However, I get to page 74 and it is all about Subscription and mentions that there will be 4 issues a year and great the price is £10 for all issues, £2.50 per issues and the ad even mentions "the cost includes postage and saves you £4 on newsagent prices"!

So I go online to register and there appears to be 6 issues, which is great I thought. Ok £15 which seems good value and then I see the price is £18, now £3 a copy and a saving of £3!

So clearly the first issues were a success, so you decided to increase the price by 20%?

Ok, sorry for ranting, but I went online to purchase the subscription and am now wondering if I should just wait and see how things go with the mag.
AndyH , December 06, 2010
...
Alun
Hi Andy

Good to hear you enjoyed reading ABR and apologies for the confusion.

We've only just decided to increase to 6 issues a year, that's why page 74 is at odds with what's on this page. As for the price increase, it's basically down to these two factors; postage charges have increased and we need to maintain a profit margin. I can tell you now, the Royal Mail make far more money out of magazine subscriptions than we do.

Regards

Gees some folk aint never happy now 6 issues not 4 dont have to wait 3 month for next mag smilies/grin.gif. I might be that folk might think that as I am getting 6 for price of 4 and there for am being smug as not affecting me but this is not the case as if you read my earlier post I was more than happy to stump up extra.
As I see it you have increased number of mags a year this has to be paid for and clearly show on web new cost, true mag advises £10 but as I see it once printed price can then be out of date cant expect you to recall mags reprint & then re-issue can we.
Any way you have a choice subscribe save money and get a great mag delivered or not subscribe pay more and spend more money travelling |& hunting down the mag and there for paying moresmilies/sad.gif.
Sorry for rant just had to add tuppence ha'penny worth.
Finally. Alun thank for my gift of 2 extra mags I look forward to these and wish you and your team a Merry Xmas and all the best for the Newyear may the mag go from strength to strength.
PS I am smug got in early and subscribed and in doing this along with every one else who subscribed early has allowed you to take the next step and generously gift us 2 extra mags free of charge no doubt @ great expense to you. Again thank you and cant wait till next mag.smilies/grin.gif

Hello All,
I dont know what others may think but,as Alun has kindly allowed those of us who subscribed for the first 4 issues the 5th and 6th free,would it be an idea to donate the difference we would have paid,or a portion of it,to a charity?
Now I know that some people regularly give to a charity and I would not expect someone to do more.But speaking for myself I do not have a designated charity but I do give to the Air Ambulance NM or North Wales if i get a windfall or sometimes I do a little job on the machines which I dont wanna charge for but I tell the people to make a donation.
What do we think?

Hi Guy's

From previous posts I appreciate why the postage rates are so high for mailing outside the UK but I will not subscribe to your excellent magazine simply because its more economical to purchase each issue individually. Why is this the case ?.

Surely it would make more sense to offer subscibers a price that is slightly less than the price of buying each issue separately and it would encourage more people to subscribe.


However its a great read guy's keep up the great work. Looking forward to issue 4.

Where's my mag - follow up
Bike Bums
Hi, received the mag today (don't know if it's the first or second one) and it's brilliant, after only a quick skim i knew it's what I've been looking for and have subscribed, it's so good the postie has probably pinched the other one!smilies/wink.gif if he returns it, or it just turns up do you want it returning?
Keep up the great standard
It was definitely worth the wait

Past issues

Hi Alun, picked up issue four whilst on holiday down in Aberystwyth a few weeks ago. I have recently taken out my subscription for future issues. I wondered if you were considering re-printing any of the back issues that are now sold out?
Please advise.

(P.S. Great Mag by the way!)smilies/smiley.gif

All the best,
Mat-tiger1.

Thanks for your comments about the magazine Mat, much appreciated. The re-print of back issues has been discussed many times on the forum - are you on there - and I'm afraid we'll not be doing it. They will be available in digital form at some time in the future.

Superb Mag! I'm sure this has been asked before but any plans to go monthly, 2 months is just too long to wait! I already subscribe and was a bit dissapointed to see the latest mag in WH Smiths before i had mine as a subscriber in the post, Any thoughts on the matter! Ta.

I subscribed back in June and ordered a back issue - never got the latest mag though so not too sure when i should receive the next one. Guess I will have to order the one that was available back in June too but would have thought it would have been sent as it was current.

Are you meant to receive confirmation when subscribing as I never heard anything back??

Not a moan as really enjoyed the back issue and want to read more smilies/smiley.gif

Digital Subscription Please
nkcedwards
I'm a Brit living in Canada now. I'd love to read the mag but not paying a big 9'er per issue. Those flash based e-mag publications are all a waste of time, too slow and a pain in the ass on my ipad/iphone.

A good quality PDF is all I want.

Oh, and could you email me once you've sorted yourselves out and I'll happily subscribe.

Zinio - Great choice to launch digital magazine.
MarioX8
Hi ,

I am from South Africa and would love to subscribe to your magazine.

To tell the truth ordering the mag will just not be cost effective.

Maybe look into Zinio Digital Magazine & Books. They publish most magazine content and is a awesome way to get Magazines.

Keep up the great work.

Hi Alun I have finally subscribed or should I say my sone Ben who has the Paypal has suscribed for me. It was done on Sunday 7th August will I get the issue 6 or will I have to get it from the newsagents. Also is there a tie up between the mag and the site subscription so that when the back issues are available on line I will be able to veiw them. Should meet up with you at the midlands meet in a couple of weeks

How Come No Back Issues?
pcmaczone
Was just reading issue 6 and realised that issue 5 had an article about Ukraine. We're heading that way ourselves. My wife is from Eastern Ukraine. We did the trip four years ago by car but want to try it on bikes. So I see you had this article that would be very relevant to our trip and yet you sold out! It seems every time a new issue appears ALL the previous issues are always unavailable. What about all of us who are new to the mag? I have only seen it once previously in Smiths but not seen it again. Come on guys, print up some back issues. There will be plenty of takers.
pcmaczone , August 17, 2011 | url
Mr

Just read issue 4 of the mag. Loved it, but would really like the other 3 issues before as well as the more recent ones. The idea of a digital issue really appeals to me. Hope it happens soon. Will gladly subscribe when I can get it on screen.

smilies/grin.gif Alun I would like to publicly thank you for your generous gift in keeping my subscription renewal at the same cost as when I subscribed when you 1st produced the best bike mag out there, I look forward every 2 month to getting the latest edition. Your generosity is very unusual in this day and age when every one appears to be out for all they can get and this is not the first time you have shown your generosity. The first was when you increased publication to every 2 month & did not ask for any increased payment.

Subscribing has been one of the best biking upgrades I have made.

I wish you every success and cant wait on the next edition smilies/grin.gif

It's been over 3 weeks since I paid my years subscription for the magazine and thought I would have received my first copy by now. It was paid by paypal account on th 11th of january, as I was keen to get the latest issue for its morroco info. I find the set up of this subscription poor as u get no reply or automated response with a recipt or order number to confirm ur order track or update It's status? Can you let me know what is the delay.

Subscription

I finally decided to subscribe to the mag despite the horrendous overseas charges here to Ireland. Then, like everyone else I came up against Paypal. I have had grief with that outfit in the past and I will not opoen another account with them. For most other purchases my Credit card is sufficient. I love the mag but this is a serious impediment for me. If there is any other way that I can pay you, please advise. Regards. Griff

Paypal
Griff
Ok thanks for the response. Regrettably that knocks me on the head for a subscription. Forgive the moan, but this makes two negatives for folks who might subscribe from overseas ( in my case Ireland ), the other being the exhorbitant mailing charges. I have been getting my American Motorcycle mag for years at a fraction of the cost of any mags that I subscribe to from the UK. That doesnt make any sense at all.

The mag looks good, but like most people these days, if I have a digital subscription, I'd want to be able to read it on my iPad, and not be tied to a PC with flash.

Any word on providing a subscription via iTunes, amazon, etc, etc or even a native app for iPad?

Hi Alun Awesome magazine for all of the adventure bikers around the world. In New Zealand your previous distributor was Gordon and Gotch. They have not distributed any mags around NZ since Issue 7.

However, I have duly paid my subscription of £20 but still your library doesn't recognise me. I also emailed Mandy - no response and now the site is showing an error 404 so I can't access it at all. I am no longer feeling all warm and cuddly about it at all - please can you sort it out. MWAHHHH!
