Are You In? Or Missing Out? Singletrack Subscribers Get More!

by 0

Every issue of Singletrack mountain bike magazine comes in two versions: the standard edition – available at newsagents; and the Premier Edition. If you’re a subscriber to our print or digital magazine, it’s this extended Premier Edition of the magazine that you’ll be reading. Which means you already know that you’re getting more for your money. In case you hadn’t noticed, you also get better deals in our online shop.

From Issue 127, subscribers will be getting an even better deal, as the cover prices of individual magazines is rising to cover the increasing costs we’re facing. You can read more about that in Chipps’ Editorial in that issue.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
