Canadian Cycling Sets New Sales Record!

Posted by Scott On June - 17 - 2015

check_mark_125x125The Dec/Jan 2015 issue of Canadian Cycling has established a new, all-time sales record.  Not only is it the best-selling issue in this time slot, it is also the best selling issue ever for Canadian Cycling.

The first issue of Canadian Cycling was the Apr/May 2010…29 issues back in time.

This cover took a much simpler, “poster like” approach, with just 4 main hooks, plus the sky bar.

The type on the main sell was bumped up larger than normal.

  • The issue sold 103% better than the issue before it.
  • It sold 58% better than all the other issues in 2014.

A special thank you to Ron Sellwood and Peter Van De Geyn, for their help to achieve this new milestone.
