Rouleur is the highly acclaimed cycling magazine, issued eight times a year. It brings together leading cycling writers and photographers to convey the essence and imagery of road racing.
Rouleur features photography and serious writing celebrating the passion and beauty of the sport and has built a dedicated and valuable following from both discerning cycling fans and the most influential bike riders in the world.
The magazine appeals to those who, like us, are passionate about the sport, but don't want to read bike tests and race reports. Instead, the magazine focuses on exquisite photography and writing that really gets under the skin of the great riders and theatres of road racing.
Rouleur puts a premium on design; we print on heavy art-stock paper and we use the highest quality reproduction and printers.

How do I change my account details?
This depends on which details you want to change. If you want to change the delivery details for your subscription, you must go to our dedicated subscription site to do so. Any changes made to Rouleur.cc will not be transferred to your subscription, so it is very important that you remember to change your subscription details in the right place.
However, if you want to change your billing or delivery details for any other shop purchase, you can do so by logging in to your account on Rouleur.cc.
The product I want is out of stock - when will it be available again?
If we have any updates on when the product will be back in stock, these updates will be communicated via our newsletter and they will be on the product's page. If the information isn't available on the website, it's because we don't have it yet.
I'm trying to sign up, but the system is not accepting my details?
It's possible that you could already have profile in the Rouleur system - the system will not accept an email address if it's already in use on another profile.
How quickly are products purchased in the Rouleur shop shipped?
Products [unless they are sold on pre-order] should be shipped within one working day of confirmed payment. Under some circumstances, the shipping time may rise. If despatch will take longer than five days, it will be expressly stated on the shop page. All purchases will be dispatched from our distribution centre in Derby.
Will I need to sign for my order when I receive it?
Rouleur occasionally uses courier services that require a signature upon delivery. Please keep this is in mind when placing an order and provide an address where someone is present to receive and sign for your order.
What are the shipping rates?
Shipping is calculated entirely by the weight of an order and the destination. Once you have selected the items you want the basket will show the cost for your chosen delivery address.
You will not pay shipping for a subscription. However, if you include any other products in an order that includes a subscription, you do have to pay for shipping.
Why is shipping priced like that?
Since our shipping costs are based on weight, it makes sense for us to charge accordingly. It should be noted that Rouleur magazines and books are printed on high-quality paper which is heavy and demands careful packaging; many of our products are therefore expensive to ship. Weight-based postage charges, however, mean a single issue, t-shirt or cap is a reasonable price including delivery.
How long does shipping* take?
Again, this depends on where you are. The times listed below are the maximum times promised by our delivery services, though it may take less time.
Maximum delivery time (as promised by carriers)
|UK||Standard shipping: 5 working days; Express shipping: 2 working days|
|Europe||Standard shipping: 12 working days; Express shipping: 5 working days|
|USA & Rest of the World||Standard shipping: 10-25 working days; Express shipping: 5 working days|
