It’s that time of the month where we’re putting the finishing touches to the magazine files, ready to send them off to the printer. That means it’s time for you to check out the latest cover.
It’s another wonder cover from Pete Scullion:
- Cover Photographer: Pete Scullion
- Rider: Scott Lyndsay
- Location: Stob Coire an Lochain
There might not be a steeper way to bag two Munros. Stob Binnein and Ben More from Inverlochlaraig is a fierce day out with a real emphasis on the vertical. 8500ft in seven and a half miles really tested the legs, but for brief moments where the contour lines spread out, the ridgeline singletrack was some of the best I’ve ridden. Scott makes moves back towards the car and the promise of a fish supper.
Isn’t it lovely? Can’t you just feel how your right cheek warms ever so slightly in the sun, while your left gets the chill air whipping off that snowdrift? Is it downhill all the way from here? Just a pedal stroke here and there to keep things going. Or maybe you feel compelled to stop and make a snow angel in the vestiges of the snow, just because you’re there and you’re happy and why not add some extra childlike delight into the mix?
Mmm… let your eyes wander and your mind drift a moment… put yourself there.

‘As we can see from the Q2 results, we need to inject some blue sky thinking…’
‘Sales levels remain frozen at Q1 levels…’
Ahh…frozen ground, no mud, tyre treads left in the snow…’
‘We’re going to need you to crunch those numbers…’
Crunching…frosty blades of grass being chased by the golden sun, crackle
of frost giving way to swoosh of rubber on damp grass…
