How To Read Singletrack – December 2023 Edition

by 2

Our latest magazine is now available – here’s how you can get your hands on it.

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 28th December 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, so hopefully it’ll be with you by 7th January.

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. (Behind the Paywall) 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 November 2023, you can also download a version of the mag from Pocketmags if you have an iPad or iPhone. 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.

And of course, you can just buy a copy from our webshop:

What’s inside Singletrack World issue 152?

This issue’s cover is by our very own Amanda. Do not adjust your set, and no you haven’t put on the wrong glasses…

The Hope WMN Enduro at Gisburn Forest is a real feel-good event whatever the weather. In the event village this year I met Martha, a 9 year old mountain bike and BMX racer. I’d been hoping to get a fun reflection shot on the side of the pizza truck, having noticed it looked like a hall of mirrors, so when I asked Martha if she could ride past it for me and she pulled a wheelie I was pretty impressed. Around 12 wheelies later, we got a shot we were both happy with. Thanks Martha!

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.
