International Adventure: European Divide
Andy Cox has spent months and years travelling across Europe to devise a new European Divide route. He brings us some highlights and lowlights from his time on the road.
UK Adventure: Simply The Best
Claiming the ‘Best legit descent in the Lakes’ is a bold statement. But James Vincent reckons he has a great loop that includes the greatest descent in the Lake District.
Facing Up To Growing Up
Emma and Carly have swapped #vanlife for walls and a roof. Are they enjoying the #homelife or are their feet itching for another adventure?
Chelsea Kimball takes us to Mexico, for Johny Salido’s first Freeride Fiesta. Tequila, mariachi bands, and giant jumps – the perfect mix?

Sanny extols the virtues of some waterside wandering by bike. Channel your inner Ratty and Mole and come exploring ‘doon the watter’.
MTB Culture: Lockdown Lessons
Is it over yet? What did we learn? Have we thrived? Or have we just survived? Hannah goes in search of some positive outcomes from lockdown.
And that’s not all! We also have an Editorial from Chipps, a column from Amanda, a glimpse into the history of mountain bike media, and another deep dive into the language of the bike world from Barney Marsh.
Oh, and of course, there’s another great cover for you:
This issue’s cover is by John Gibson and features Oz the dog. Does Oz have a taste for sealant? What tyres for chewing? Is this trailside minion being too much of an aggressor? Do you rekon this little shorty can pick up the pace out on the trail? OK..ok..we’ll stop!
