Today I visited my favorite site to get cycling news, CyclingNews.com. I, like everyone else, was sent to this new beta design. This is no longer my favorite site to get cycling news. In fact, I don't see how anyone could possibly use the site anymore.
The old site was easy to scan, my eyes could take in lots of information and it was laid out in a way that worked. The new site is a jumble of completely unorganized words that are impossible to scan. The slider area at the top (Today on Cyclingnews) is completely unreadable. At a glance you have no idea what is going on. The old one was easy on the eyes and very easy to read. This is a huge step backwards.
The amount of information delivered by the home page has been cut in half, if not more. A quick view of the site doesn't tell me if there is anything new I want to see since last time I was there. Now I have to scroll all over the place and try and figure it out from many locations, and probably still have no idea.
This website reeks of "Mobile First" design, and while that can be great, this time it is not. I will have to find another site to get this news from.
