BikeRadar closes US offices

By Stephen Frothingham

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — BikeRadar.com’s publishers, U.K.-based Immediate Media, has closed its U.S. editorial offices, which included three editors who worked in the Boulder area.

“This difficult decision is the result of increased operating costs, exacerbated by negative exchange rates,” the publisher said in a statement Wednesday. Immediate said no changes are planned to the North America operations of its other cycling title, Cyclingnews.com.

“We would like to thank the US BikeRadar team for the outstanding work they have produced over the years and wish them well for the future,” the statement said. The U.S. editorial offices include U.S. editor-in-chief Ben Delaney, tech editor Josh Patterson and tech writer Russell Eich.

Immediate said it would continue to cover the U.S. bike market with an increased freelance and travel budget and is recruiting three staff members in the U.K. to join BikeRadar’s office in Bristol.

Immediate said BikeRadar has a global audience of over 3 million monthly readers.
