As the best mountain bike magazine in the North*, we at Singletrack were tired of having to schlep down to London (or Friedrichshafen, or Las Vegas) in order to catch up with people who live and work just over the hill from us.
To this end, and to celebrate the start of another Grim Northern Winter™, we had a Northern Gathering for the corner of the bike trade that exists above Birmingham.
It was a mellow gathering of like-minded folks at Singletrack Towers, starting with elevenses of Singletrack coffee, with pastries from the pie shop round the corner, then out on a ride. Finally we’ll reconvened at the office for a traditional Northern pie and peas supper, washed down with some local valley beers.
