PITTSBURGH, Penn. (BRAIN) — Rotating Mass Media, publisher of Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times magazines, has named Gary J. Boulanger the new editor of Bicycle Times, effective immediately.
"Gary and I go back many years, and I've always admired his tenacity and enthusiasm for cycling and publishing," said Maurice Tierney, the founder, owner and publisher of Bicycle Times. "He's been part of the Rotating Mass Media family for two years, and he understands our editorial vision. The industry is in the midst of a two-wheeled revolution, with a return to adventure and fun. We plan to turn some heads and inspire more people to get on bikes, and that makes me happy."
Karen Brooks, the founding editor of Bicycle Times, left the magazine last month.
Boulanger has contributed to several titles over his 23-year tenure in the industry, including Dirt Rag, Bicycle Retailer, Cyclingnews.com, VeloNews, Paved, Bike, Procycling, Cycling Plus, Privateer and Bike Europe. He was also the founding U.S. editor of Bikeradar.com.
"I'm excited to be in the editor's chair at Bicycle Times," Boulanger added. "With the recent growth of gravel bikes, fat bikes, electric bikes, touring, gran fondos and bikepacking, we certainly have our work cut out for us. As we like to say around the office, we're living in bicycle times. Let's celebrating the freedom, thrill and adventure of cycling."
Boulanger will work out of his Mountain View, Calif., office.
