What’s Inside Singletrack World Magazine Issue 141? Out today!

by 16

Singletrack World Magazine Issue 141 Contains:

You have probably noticed that we’ve just published Singletrack Magazine online. If you’re a member, that means you can go and read the articles right now, if you want to. You’ll find a few extra images, plus some videos – but it doesn’t smell like our printed magazine, and it’s riskier to read it in the bath.

How will you read yours?

If you’re not already a member, join us today and all those stories you see above will be available to you to read, right now. You will also be able to access the pdf, ePub and Kindle copies of back issues. Memberships start at just £2.50 a month, or £20 a year.

If you’re a bit overwhelmed by all the stories, head here to the Issue 141 page, where you’ll find all the articles in order, just like they are in the printed magazine.

Speaking of which, if you receive a printed copy of the magazine each issue, it’s now in the post – we can’t be sure exactly when it will land with you, but if you’re in the UK and you’ve still not got it by 15th February, please email us. If you’re outside the UK, it might take up to a month to make its way to you, across the sea and overland.

There are other options too:

  • You can download a pdf of the magazine here. This is an exact copy of the printed magazine.
  • You can download an ePub version of the magazine. This is a more basic version of the magazine, with fewer pictures, that you can read in a variety of electronic book programmes, such as iBooks, or on an iPad.
  • You can download a Kindle version, for your Kindle. Like the ePub version, this is optimised for Kindles, so has all the words, but far fewer pictures.
  • You can download the interactive mag from Pocketmags, which has all the same content as the web page versions, but with all the swipe and tap interactivity you get with an iPad or iPhone – which is what you need to read this version.

Don’t forget, whether you’re a member or not, you can enjoy our cover shot by Pete Scullion in all its beauty as an A3 print. And if you think you might just want to buy this issue in print, it’s available to buy in our shop.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think 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. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    @David_Polglase I’ve dropped tech a line so it’ll be first on their list when their day starts. Sorry about that.

    Fully paid up member but printed version FTW. (Even if some of the images look better on my massive work monitor!)

    That’s not where I read mine!

    So, I have just moved from Print to Digital – what is the best way to read the mag on a (Windows) PC? If I want the ‘full experience’ it looks like I should be heading to PocketMags – does that need a separate account or subscription? The link above takes me to the PocketMags page where I can ‘buy’ mags but it’s not obvious how read STW that I paid for (apologies for stupidity).

    There’s a magazine ?

    @Vincent_Gregory Pocket Mags is for ipads and iphones. Your best option is probably the web stories, which will include the videos and links we’d also put in the Pocket Mags version, or the pdf – which looks like the printed mag.

    Thanks @Hannah – are the web stories all available somewhere (Members page?) when the mag is published or are these the news items I see drip-fed a few weeks later?

    It seems so, and apparently you can get 50% off subs if the link to get the deal took you somewhere useful

    Edit: finally figured it out (only taken several weeks and an email that wasn’t responded to). Turns out that my old sub was “on hold” since last year, needed fully cancelled before I could take the deal

    I’ve never noticed what Vincent was reading before.

    @Vincent_Gregory Online articles are listed here: https://singletrackworld.com/singletrack-magazine-online-article-index/ It’s not the full collection, but going forward the full mags will be there – we’ve just done a whole heap of work behind the scenes here to make it happen. If there’s anything missing from the past that you want to read, the pdfs should all be there.

    As I said, we’ve just done a lot of work here to get these articles online, and there are a few more developments to come that we hope will streamline some of the download process and join up some of the membership bits and pieces so it’s easier to see all that you’re getting as a member. I’d recommend that you sign up for the Members newsletter as this is the best way to stay up to date with what we’re doing and there are regular feedback opportunities in there too.

    @Hannah – thanks again – that is superb work. I only dropped the Print sub as I found the quality of the photos not that great anymore – and I do like a good inspirational photo 🙂

    Has anyone successfully downloaded the .pdf issue 141? I just get a white box and downloading the linked file gives 20kb of nothing.

    @Rubber_Buccaneer it was working this morning. I don’t understand the tech behind it, but it’s a bit like the fuse on it trips every time we turn a light on in the house. I suspect that some work tech did this afternoon on the site has caused it to break again and I’ve let them know. I referenced above some further work we’re doing behind the scenes – the way we upload and host the pdfs is one of them. Sorry about the trouble.

    Anybody struggling to download the new issue in Pocketmags? The app just crashes with the new issue but previous ones load fine. Any ideas please?
