VeloNews will produce 50,000 standalone print copies of the guide for USA Cycling members, direct mail campaigns, and for membership premium offers. USA Cycling and VeloNews will offer bonus distribution of the guide at Sea Otter and the Bicycle Leadership Conference.
‘The agreement includes omnichannel marketing consideration reaching millions of cycling enthusiasts across the VeloNews audience including campaigns in print, online, social, email, and event channels.’
