Singletrack 82: Sneak peeks and exclusive Premier feature.

by singletrackjenn 6

Issue 82 is heading off to the printers this week so here’s the customary taster of what’s going on inside.

We’ve been slaving away getting the next issue ready to go and it’s jam-packed with good reading and pretty pictures (though not actual jam, that would be sticky). To whet your appetite, you can read Chipps’ tale of wet Welsh trail centre radness/madness before the magazine even leaves the building – click here to fill your lunchbreak with green trees, sausages and fleece tartan PJs.

Exclusive Premier Feature.

As we’ve got more stories than pages, here’s a unique web feature for issue 82 which is exclusive to Premier users.

Welcome to the Lake District...

Want to see how Dave and Mark got on when we sent them to the unseasonally grim Lake District in the company of Roger ‘This way!‘ Seal and a brace of Bionicon’s Generation 2 Alva machines? Of course you do. Click here to read the story if you’re already a Premier user.

  1. Not read the last issue yet and the bike has hardly been out since xmas! I guess Scotland isn’t the MTB capital of the world people make out. I spend my team riding on road these days.

  2. Is green the new white?
    And giant bourbon biscuits???? I’m in!!

  3. Some good looking articles in there. Will it arrive in time for my trip to Spain on Tuesday? *crosses fingers*

  4. It’s due to land on doorsteps on June 6th, assuming the Bank Holiday doesn’t tweak things too much.

  5. Nice to see someone is getting to ride a new Banshee, i’m still waiting for mine 🙁

  6. The Croissant of Pain photo is a corker, would make a good desktop.
