Singletrack Issue 76 Cover Wallpaper

by 14

If the only light you see all day is from a monitor and the gloom outside is getting you down when you do venture out, then we’ve got something that’ll make your desktop a much happier place.

Fresh from the cover of Issue 76, we’ve got Sam Needham’s cracking shot from the Yorkshire Dales for you to download and use as wallpaper. Because we’re forward thinking types, there’s even an iPad friendly version.

Singletrack issue 76 - Sam Needham Mountain Bike Wallpaper
Issue 76's cover, shot by Sam Needham in the Yorkshire Dales

“Despite the Yorkshire Dales being on my doorstep, I have rarely spun two wheels over its rolling, limestone-scattered hillocks. So in light of Yorkshire (I mean Team GB’s) success at the London Olympics and the prospect of Yorkshire turning yellow for a future Tour stage, Jon Hopkinson, Sam Flannigan and myself took to the Dales on a mission of discovery. You may note that this photo proves a few old wives tales wrong. One, that the UK has got some sunshine in 2012; two, that XC racer Jon Hopkinson isn’t allergic to baggy cycling attire and three, that the Yorkshire Dales is a great place to turn a wheel or two over.”

    Should be working now Sandwich!

    Love this. Can we get some more wallpapers please? 🙂

    Of late the cover shots in particular and photos captured for articles have been really inspiring. Have you considered producing a calendar based on these rather than the shots used in the yearly free calendar? (not that I’m complaining). Or indeed some ‘cover shot’ coffee table book or something? I understand there may be complications with licensing and costs but I’m sure those interested would ‘buy’ a calendar (or book). Just a thought.

    Also any details of that Yorkshire Dales ride? Looks great.

    1080p biking wallpapers, my life is complete!

    Great pictures, inspires me to get out and get mucky.

    I would like the route taken on the photoshoot for the British FS test in issue 76. Some great looking trails! Where is it?

    Embsay Crags, near Skipton. Glad you like my pics 🙂

    Where at Embsay crags is this? As it appears to be a limestone ridge and Embsay crags is a gritstone outcrop/escarpment running from Eastby to Rylstone.

    Jasonabudd – sorry, I was replying to Bammy who asked where the bike test pics were taken. I’ve no idea about the cover pic.

    Thank you, would be great to have one every month as your cover shots are always awsome!
