The current issue of Bicycle Times Magazine has special significance for one Portland resident. Issue #37 of the magazine (brought to you by Pennsylvania-based Rotating Mass Media, the same folks who do the venerable MTB mag Dirt Rag) is the first one put together by Adam Newman.

Newman, who moved to Portland last summer, was named editor-in-chief of Bicycle Times back in July.

If you go to local bike events and various rides in the city and region, you have probably already rubbed shoulders with Mr. Newman. He did some stellar coverage of the Riverview Natural Area trails debate and he most recently joined Travel Oregon for a tour of the coast on fat bikes (which you can read about in the current issue).

Congrats Adam! We’re lucky to have you here in Portland.

Read the official news release below:

We have appointed Adam Newman the new editor-in-chief at Bicycle Times magazine. You likely know Adam as the online editor for both Bicycle Times and Dirt Rag.

Adam has done a great job expanding our audience online and we know he can do so with the magazine too. He has a ton of great skills that really make him a valuable asset to the team.

“It’s an exciting time to take the helm at the magazine,” Newman said. “Bike riders, the bike industry and the bikes themselves have all been changing so quickly over the past few years and I really think Bicycle Times has been ahead of the curve, and will continue to be.”

Adam is stepping into the role of editor-in-chief as Gary Boulanger departs to pursue a career in the motorcycle industry. “The last three years working for Rotating Mass Media have been a podium highlight of my career, and I’m grateful that Maurice and his crew welcomed me with open arms,” said Boulanger. “Bicycle Times continues to make its mark in the publishing world, and I’m confident it will continue to shine and inspire.”

As Editor-in-Chief Adam will oversee production of six issues of Bicycle Times per year, as well as supervising editorial coverage online and hosting the first Bicycle Times Adventure Fest this fall. Adam earned a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and spent seven years in the newspaper industry before joining us in 2010.

Very good; BT is a great magazine and it’s nice to see that there’s a Northwest connection. I thought most of the staff were based in the Pittsburgh area–and Adam should find out that there’s a “Pittsburg” in Columbia County, it’s part of a fine loop ride.

Haha, this spring I rode Pittsburg Road after reading about Jonathan’s ride: http://bikeportland.org/2014/01/27/exploring-columbia-county-backroads-outside-of-scappoose-100496

Congrats, Adam! I noticed this when I got my issue last week.

I had the good fortune to get to hang with Adam during the coast fat bike trip. This couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.

I was sad to see this magazine close…just the same week I upped my annual to a lifetime membership. It was such a good read.
