June 17, 2014
The month of June is a great time to be a bike journo at Singletrack. As well as the first round of 2015 product launches, we’ve got events in all disciplines cramming the calendar, the weather is mostly ace and to top it all off, our 90th issue goes on sale on 26th June too!
The rundown of the contents follows after the Big Yellow Button – if you’re not a subscriber (and if not, why not? 😉 ), hit it now and place your pre-order. We’ll send your magazine out as soon as the UPS guy delivers it to us next week.
Pre-order your copy now!
Here’s what’s in issue 90’s lovely printed pages (and all its digital ones too)…
Haruki ‘Harookz’ Noguchi grabbed the cover shot in Squamish, B.C, with Curtis Robinson, Matty Miles and Kyle Norbraten kicking up dust on their way to a cold IPA at ride’s end. Lush.
Steve and Barney hit up a Lakeland classic for a day of riding in the sunshine, with beer and pies. Out of office? Absolutely.
What happens when two mountain bike journalists get hitched and want a ‘different’ honeymoon? They ride across a Croatian mountain range, of course…
If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past fortnight then you may have missed just how awesome the Tweedlove festival was. Never fear, though – Sam Needham and Dave captured the best bits for your pleasure.
More Sam Needham content, in conjunction with Pete Scullion, Withnail and Renton. This time the brothers get grim.
Even pro riders need holidays! Dan Atherton and Hans Rey hit up the big mountains (deckchairs optional).
Salter Fell’s a fell we know well but we’ve never seen it like this before (or indeed tried to say that rapidly on #drinkbeeratyourdeskfriday). Beate and her sketchbook take on a long ride home.
This issue’s bike test looks at trail bikes from Ibis, Pivot and Rocky Mountain, so we thought it only fitting – and sensible – to grouptest as many knee pads as we could get our hands on, too*. Elsewhere there’s a tasty array of Grinder products ground to bits and seasoned with the traditional selection of chewy columns, delicious photography and pithy commentary on the state of the mountain bike nation. Ahem.
