In the first few years of publishing Singletrack magazine we ran a series of articles that we titled the ‘The Armchair feature’. These features rarely had any illustrations or images as they were simply too long. Magazine features are traditionally kept to somewhere between 2000 – 3000 words and spread over 6 to 8 pages of the mag, interspersed with a sprinkling of gorgeous images. But sometimes we get sent features that are much longer and having read them we can’t bring ourselves to chop the authors carefully crafted words down just so they fit the standard model of magazine publishing. So we ran them in their unadulterated form as features designed to be read after curling up in your favourite armchair when you have some quality time for yourself.
Here, we have gathered all those early features together into a single digital volume for your armchair pleasure. We hope you will understand why we couldn’t bring ourselves to cut them down to a more traditional size.
