Outing was a late-nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American magazine covering a variety of sporting activities. It began publication in 1882 as the Wheelman "an illustrated magazine of cycling literature and news" and had four title changes before ceasing publication in 1923.

Samuel McClure edited the "Wheelman" for Colonel Albert Pope, Pope Manufacturing Company for bicycles for two years. Bicycling was the first outdoor sport to seize the Americans. Suddenly bicycling was all the rage.[1]

In 1884 is was called Outing and the Wheelman: An Illustrated Monthly Magazine of Recreation.[2]

The magazine first published Jack London's novel White Fang in serial form. Frederic Remington submitted commissioned drawings of the Old West.
