Last week we promised you a rundown of what’s in the latest issue of Singletrack. Here it is, right on time to brighten up the are-we-nearly-there-yet grind that is Thursday…
There’s a definite vacation feel to this issue with stunning travel and adventure stories from Taiwan and the Azores. Closer to home we hitch a ride with the first and only woman home at this year’s Highland Trail 550 for a warts-and-all look at what it’s like to race around Scotland.
Steve and Barney keep it on topic and cobble together a two-day, off-road assault on stage one of this year’s Tour de France, with predictably mixed consequences. The Classic Ride sets its out-of-office and heads to Morzine, while the bike test treats itself to a staycation with three awesome British hardtails from Cotic, Genesis and Singular.
Chipps goes behind the scenes at Saracen HQ and tests 12 small-but-perfectly-formed hydration packs (OK – we let him have some help), while Jorji reports back on her Mondraker Foxy long-termer: both its ride and the, um, ‘divisive’ looks. We’ve got columns from Chipps, Benji and Alex Leigh, plus the usual assortment of Grinder products minced, mashed and mangled to within an inch of their precious little lives. Lastly we know you’ve already seen the cover but we like it so much we’re showing it to you again!
The Singletrack shop is doing a roaring trade in pre-orders while subscriptions are available here – and we’re working hard to get the digital issues ready right now, too.
It’s FREE! as part of your Premier package and you’d be mad to miss out on all the extra photography, video and interactive content we’ll be squeezing through your digital letterbox!
