Here’s what’s inside…

UK Adventure – Dark Is Good

The clocks may be changing, but Sanny thinks this is no reason to be downhearted. Riding by dawn’s early light becomes a lot easier when the day doesn’t start at 4am.

Classic Ride – The South Downs

singletrack magazine subscription

It’s that classic southern route that every UK mountain biker should probably do at least once. Tom Hutton ventures out on a blistering hot day for a reminder of why.

Column: Jason Miles

Our regular columnist tries really hard not to write about bodily functions.

International Adventure: Denmark

Amanda goes to Denmark expecting hygge, pastries and big jumpers. Instead she ends up foraging for her tea on a burial mound, and cold and naked in the north sea.

Column: Generation Gapped

‘I jumped this far’

Adam Batty goes riding with his Dad and his Grandad, with e-bikes bridging the gap between the generations.

Adieu Trans Provence

Tom Hill goes behind the scenes of the final Trans Provence race, giving us an insight into just how much effort this classic event has taken to put on. If you were thinking about creating its replacement, you might want to read this first.

UK Adventure – Lake District Traverse

Nigel Page wheelies his way across the Lake District, while Chipps chases on both wheels and make notes on all Nigel’s tales from his years in the bike industry.

Bike Test: British Steel

Antony de Heveningham tests out three steel hardtails from Shand, Stanton, and 18 Bikes – designed and built right here in the UK.

If we all got one flight less the world would be a better place. Mark finds out what it’s like to take the train to Switzerland. Well, trains. Quite a few of them in fact.

Van Gals

Where’s the van?

Emma and Carly have packed in their day jobs and packed up their van for a life on the road, then naively sign up to the Pass’Portes Du Soleil…

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.

    So many great things to do on bikes if you don’t have young kids!

    @mtbfix don’t lose heart! Many of us are parents too. We owe it to our kids to set an adventurous example – at least that’s my justification for claiming time out to do the bike stuff. And have you read Barney’s Tykepacking feature… could take them with you?
