Steve Brawley leaving Bicycling after 11 years

Published May 22, 2017

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — Steve Brawley has left Bicycling magazine, where he has spent the past 11 years of his career, most recently as national cycling manager. His last day at the Rodale publication was Friday.

Brawley's position in Rodale's Chicago office was eliminated this week, according to a statement from the magazine. Jordan Scheibe will now represent both Runner's World and Bicycling for non-cycling advertising in the Midwestern territory, and Bicycling's Alex Jarman will assume coverage of cycling industry advertisers in the territory.

"Steve has been an ambassador for Bicycling and a trusted counsel to many of our advertising partners; and his contributions have been instrumental to our success," said Bicycling publisher Zack Grice. "Saying goodbye to a smart colleague and a good friend is a sad consequence of an intensely challenging advertising environment, and a radiating effect of sustained cost-cutting inside the cycling industry. Bicycling's success correlates directly with advertising support from the cycling industry we serve and celebrate, and we'll keep working hard to be an indispensable marketing partner to help our clients' businesses grow."

"I've been fortunate to talk to Steve just about every day for the past decade," said Grice. "He has a positive energy and outlook that makes everyone around him feel good. I hope the best is yet to come for him."
