What’s Inside Singletrack World Issue 142? Out Today!

by 11

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, especially with all the Bank Holidays, but if you’re in the UK and you’ve still not got it by 22nd April, 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.

If you want to read the magazine online, or you join us today, you have 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.
  • Read the articles online. We’ll be publishing them over the next week or so, so look out for them popping up on the homepage, or check back here to see what’s new each day.

If you were already a member by 25th March 2022, you can also 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. We get charged for every download in this format, so you only get access to the versions created while you had an active membership – so if you want a back issue from before you joined us, try one of the other formats above.

Both the Pocketmags and online versions of our articles contain some extra features, like more 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?

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.

    Just read Pete’s adventure with the Nukeproof boys around Cannock/Shugborough – quite enjoyable.
    Nice to see someone extoling the non-trail-centre virtues of the Chase.
    Don’t suppose there’s a link to the route taken is there?

    I’m away from home so won’t get the paper mag for another week. Just went to download the pdf but issue 142 isn’t there.

    Is it just me not seeing it?

    Full Member

    Ok so I can’t find the pdf or epub so I had a look at pocketmag which seems to have it, but it looks like I have to pay for it again? Am I missing something?

    Hallo? Any advice on how to get Pocketmags working?

    @reeksy I’ve just asked folks in the UK to check it out. If your membership is all up to date with us you should just be able to download it, no fee. Pocketmags may need to press a button or two at their end I think.

    @gary_biles the articles on the site are only visible to people with memberships, not the general public! It’s just another way to be able to read the mag.
