The Road is The Motorcycle Action Group's new A4 80 page full colour magazine. The Road replaces Streetbiker, MAG's tabloid newspaper.

While The Road will retain the campaigning political element of Streetbiker, there will be an increase in feature material with an emphasis on travel stories and mature topics designed to accommodate the enhanced appetites of the evolving motorcycle community.

The Road will be very much a rider's magazine which will seek to involve committed motorcyclists who ride extensively by inviting their contributions to complement a number of regular columnists and road testers including Roland Brown.
