International Adventure: Revelstoked

James Vincent skips the usual McRiding of the Canadian bike parks to take on a real mountain with the locals in Revelstoke. A three hour hike up, but a solid hour of magical descending from the top. Get beyond Whistler’s bike parks and get wild!

UK Adventure: Ochils the Noo

Just outside the city.

Sanny heads to Stirling and the Ochil Hills. Is this where the perfect blend of city life and mountain wilderness is to be found?

Column: Jason Miles

Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat. Don’t be like that goose. Jason suggests that you take some steps to avoid goose impersonation.

Classic Ride: All Weather Lake District

Chipps takes us on a weatherproof tour of the Lake District. Start in Grizedale, but miss out the manmade stuff and head onto the hills for this all-weather, low level Lakeland classic.

Tech: When Did It All Get Good?

Barney Marsh rifles through the archives of suspension technology and examines why – and when it all got good – just about when Singletrack was launched it seems. But is suspension perfected yet? Of course not…

Editors’ Choice 2019

We bring you the highlights of the past year. The staff favourite products, events, locations and more – these are the things we’d spend our own money on getting to experience.

Still Going: Lucky Shorts

Vicky Chapman doesn’t care if she looks scruffy when she’s feeling lucky.

Pete’s Pros: Jamie Nicholl

Pete Scullion catches up with Santa Cruz sponsored professional adventurer Jamie Nicholl. Is it an enviable life of Insta-perfect influencing, or is there a more gruelling side to #adventurelife?

Bike Test: Bling Bikes

What do you get if money is no object and you opt for boutique carbon with bells and whistles? Chipps goes riding with a security detail to test out three bikes from Hope, Intense and Yeti – companies that don’t bother doing alloy.

International Adventure: Davos On The Cheap

Pete Scullion goes to the millionaire’s playground in the Swiss Alps – except that he’s a bike bum on a budget. Will he survive? Will they ask him to leave quietly?

How much for a pint of milk?
Bottled water was cheap.

International Adventure: Greek Highland Hopping

Amanda eschews tourist islands and azure seas for Greece’s industrial north in the shadow of Mount Olympus.

Greek gods?

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.
