Festive Greetings from The Cub Mag.

From everyone at The Cub Mag we would like to thank all of our subscribers, advertisers and friends for supporting the mag in its first year.  Since April 2012, life in the publishing lane has been exciting and hectic, and jolly good fun.  So thank you one and all for making it worthwhile.  Don't worry, there really is no rest for the wicked; while you're all munching mince pies or taking your Cubs for a canter (don't forget the pictures please) the keyboard will be red hot and the printer will be a-whirring-away and we'll soon have the January issue landing on doorsteps across the world - USA, Belgium, Germany, France, Australia, Bermuda, Ireland, Malaysia and not forgetting every corner of the UK, from Shetland to Lewis to Dorset to Kent to Newcastle to Edinburgh.....

And to misquote a very famous seasonal poem.....

"Edward Bear exclaimed ere he rode out of sight (pop pop pop bang!), Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!"

Here is an example of the type of articles you can expect from THE CUB MAG -
Issue 3 October 2012

Editors Ramblings ~ ah well, sorry, that's a bit of blurb from Gorgeous Biker Chick, aka The Editor!

CUB CAMP! ~ Promoting the idea of a Cub only get together in 2013.  It will feature road and off road activities and an array of Cub stars and suppliers will be there too.

Makin’ Tracks ~ a regular slot that aims to encourage Cub riders to get out and about on their little Triumphs.

My First Bike ~ Keith Brady jotted down his memories of owing a Tiger Cub in the 1960s.  This article has received great feedback and has already resulted in submissions of more great tails, errrr, tales of Cub ownership in 'the good old days'.

See No Evil ~ a bit of a break from Cubs, this feature will usually be a non-Cub story.  This month, our man Stu went Terrier spotting at the big Banbury run.  He found one too - but no pics - anyone help with this???

Trials Time ~ a regular slot from Paul Beswick of Pre65 & Twin Shock Trials parts reporting of Tiger Cubs being hurled at rocks and thrown into cold rushing rivers of icy mountain water....

Price Watch ~ your regular guide to the prices that our favourite little bikes are fetching (or not).  Features both road and trials machine prices.

Budget Trials Cub ~ another top story which has had great response.  Dave Mayle talks you through his build of a trials Cub that cost him less than a thousand pounds.  I think we'll be seeing a range of home built trials beasts based on this feature.

Spotlight On: B&B Engineering ~ the story behind Brett Baxter from Cornwall, who makes all kinds of parts for Cubs and Terriers.

Technically Talking ~ you need to take the advice given by Pat Press seriously.  Change those main bearings!

Colourful Cubs ~ Mike Estall is known the world over as The Cub Guru, and is a keen contributor to The Cub Mag.  In part 1, Mike recalls his trip to Bermuda, where the passion for Tiger Cubs was colourful to say the least!

Cubbie Restoration ~ Gorgeous Biker Chick makes the nation wince as she confesses to yet more maltreatment of her 1962 Cubbie during the rebuild.

Show Time ~ The Cub Mag went to the new Lanark motorbike show.  It was fun.  No, really, it was!

At Your Service ~ a selection of advertisers who can supply Cub spares or services to suit your Cub.  Some offer discounts to subscribers, and some you won't find advertising elsewhere.
