Rouleur is a British cycling magazine first published in 2006[1] by sportswear brand Rapha and later as a part of Gruppo Media Ltd.[2] The magazine's main focus is road racing but there have been excursions into areas such as cyclo-cross and track 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.[3]

On Rouleur's genesis, founder Guy Andrews said: "I found a shot and started messing about with some cover ideas, there were no bikes in it, just a road and it made me start to think about how state and formulaic cycling consumer magazines had become. It sounds a bit pretentious now, but I thought there was a bit more to road cycling than fitness specials, pictures of bunch sprints and tests of £1000 bikes."[4]


The magazine is edited by Ian Cleverly and is designed by Rob Johnston. Contributors include The New York Times writer Matt Seaton, Ned Boulting, Paul Fournel, Jorgen Leth as well as the British former professional cyclist Robert Millar. Photographic contributors include Ben Ingham, Robert Wyatt, Taz Darling, Geoff Waugh, Timm Kölln, Olaf Unverzart, Rein van de Wouw, Marthein Smit and Dan Sharp.

It has also featured photography from Henri Cartier-Bresson, Nadav Kander, Gerry Cranham and Magnum photographers John Vink and Guy le Querrec.

In addition to the magazine the website is edited by Timothy John.
