EDITOR’S TRAIL

Dear Friends of Bicycles United, Truly sorry we know we have done it again we’re late again. No it is not something that we are proud to be and we really are grateful for all your patience. There is so much to do, to see, to visit, to talk to and to write about. Don’t worry in the next few months we will be pushing issues after issues out so hang in there for your copies From this issue onwards due to the increase printing we will be selling the magazine at Baht 80.00 per copy but on a subscription it will cost Baht 400.00 for six issues only. We will start off selling the magazine in bicycle shops and later in bookstores. This issue’s topic is focused on Triathlon where many cyclists have moved a step forward to challenging themselves further.
