The print version of grit.cx #008 hit the streets last week, and today you can find all of that same #dirtydropbargoodness in digital form. Now available on your iOS or Android mobile devices, you’ll find all of the same content from the printed magazine, as well as a newsfeed of stories, columns and product reviews featured daily from our web site.
Current subscribers can use your web site login to unlock the magazine section in the aforementioned apps. If you don’t have the app for your preferred mobile device, you can click here and download the app of your choice.
What’s that? You’re not already a subscriber? Well, then…click here to subscribe right away! In addition to receiving a beautiful printed copy of grit.cx every three months, you can also choose to have access to the full digital version of the magazine.
Keep in mind that new subscribers can access everything in our archives including the latest issue. How’s THAT for instant gratification!
grit.cx is also available as a web site version. This is a nice way to pretend you’re working at your computer, but you’re really being transported to beautiful and fun places to ride your bike. It’s also a nice option if you don’t have the app on your mobile device. It’s the same content as the app and as the printed magazine, but you can take it all in through your web browser.
