Chipps says…

For some people, night riding is a necessity – getting to work in the mornings, or getting some training time in the evenings, while for others, it’s a thing in itself. A weekly indulgence through the darker months where like-minded riders get together to enjoy a new twist on old trails. Sometimes the fitness benefit is secondary to seeing friends you’d not otherwise see until the spring, while other times, it’s a way of managing the decline of fitness over the darker months.

To find out which lights shone the brightest then order your copy now. Singletrack issue 101 is available now from newsagents, our network of Premier dealers and even our own online shop.

Currently, all new subscribers get a free copy of issue 005 of our sister magazine plus some Weldtite TF2 Lube.
