Singletrack Magazine Issue 62 out soon…

by singletrackjon 19

Issue 62 is here! It’s taken a few late nights and long days but all the words and pictures have been stuck together and magazine has been sent to the printers. Inside there are all the high quality words and pictures you should rightly expect – Matt’s epic tale from the Trans Provence race, a special gallery from the very talented Geoff Waugh, lightweight hardtails put through the Grinder plus loads more. There’s a full contents list below to whet your appetite.

As it’s this year’s final Issue, there’s also a lovely 2011 calendar absolutely free to help you organise your riding time, filled with lots of amazing pictures to keep your inspired throughout the next twelve months.

Subscribers will be getting their copies later this week and it’ll be in the shops shortly after.

If you want to get that special someone (or yourself) a subscription starting with Issue 62 then you can still get a Sub In A Box or a Sub In A Bottle deal but you’ll have to act quickly – it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

If you’ve not already taken advantage of hooking yourself up with one of our superb subscription deals then then we’ve got some special festive treats via our online shop, including some tantalising jersey and subscription combos…

  1. Yah, we’ve soooo much of the white stuff up here it’ll be great to spend sum time with the new glossy mag and a cuppa T. Brewed in a POT off course ;o)

  2. Clean cover looks much classier.

  3. I’m soooo looking forward to reading Matt’s article about the Trans Provence.

  4. Trans Provence, best bike ride EVER do it or just ride in the mud!

  5. lookig forward to this as I have finally caught up on 3 months worth of reading!
    Given our useless workshy postal service and a small sprinkling of white stuff though I doubt I’ll recieve it next week, or even the week after

  6. I am looking very much forward to it!!!

  7. Can subscribers opt to take the cover with the headlines?

    I hate to think of a sub-editor’s hard work going to waste.

  8. I’m afraid not.

    Issue 62 is now available as a PDF download from the Mag Archive for Premier Digital subscribers.

    The iTunes app version has been submitted. That should appear in our App in an hour or so.

    The Flash version with the embedded video clips will be ready tomorrow. That just takes a little longer to put together.

  9. Just had a quick look at the “other” West Yorkshire bit. Thankfully you seem to have missed out all the best bits around Harden and Bingley from the route guide 😉

  10. Glad to be able to download this as having not seen my postie for over a week due to “extreme weather” (how come I can walk to work, but not the postman?) I doubt I’ll get to see the print copy for a while longer yet.

    Whilst on the topic of PDF downloads – are there problems with issues 19 & 20? I only seem to get the text layers when viewing on iPad.

  11. I’ll look into those issues next week. They may just need re-optimising.

  12. Simon – routes in mags have to be legal (unfortunately) 😉

  13. How do i get it on my Iphone? I’m a bit thick!!

  14. roughneck – we have guide to here (as a starting point), to guide you through the whole ipad/iphone conundrum:

  15. Why does it say Issue 61 November 2009 on the cover?

  16. I’ve just bought the magazine in the shops and was expecting a review of the new Orange ST4 (2011) – what happened?

    I went and bought one a month ago anyway and love it to pieces but was interested to see what you guys thought about it.

  17. “routes in mags have to be legal (unfortunately)”

    Why? What would happen? – no, seriously…
