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.
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.
