Editors from Bicycling Magazine are in Tucson this week testing bicycles for their annual “Editor’s Choice” awards.
Bicycling Magazine’s Nick Sowards wrote in an email that the Editor’s Choice award is the highest award a product can receive.
Last year the editors tested gear in Austin, but selected Tucson this year.
“Last year, our team traveled to Austin, TX for testing, and this year Tucson was selected. Warmer weather is certainly a factor, but the quality of local rides, along with gorgeous backdrops for photography, are big factors as well. And of course, food,” Sowards wrote.
I’m working on an interview with a few of the editors, but in the meantime, you can follow the testing using the Twitter widget below.
