The chill winds of winter will not keep us from the trails. Merino baselayers, waterproof outers, and a good dose of optimism will get us by. That and the promise of a roaring fire and a pint of dark mild at the end. If that’s not enough to warm your cockles, you’ll be needing a pie to go with that, plus the latest issue of Singletrack to help pass the time while you digest and defrost. PLUS the Singletrack 2017 Calendar. Here’s what to expect:
International Adventure: Switzerland - Winter in Switzerland doesn’t haven’t to mean skis and snowboards. Sim checks out the growing fat biking scene there.
Editors’ Choice - Chipps and the gang pick out their very favourite products, events and locations from the year.
Interview: Tom Ritchey - Chipps talks to this man of steel (tubing) about framebuilding, fast racers and innovative product design.
Trail Hunter - Nan Bield - Tom Fenton adds one of the Lake District’s hardest challenges to your must-ride bucket list.
Dressing for winter - How can we best recommend winter gear for you? By starting with a shivering Australian, of course…
Bike Test: Battle of the Titans - Three bikes from the biggest names in the industry: Giant, Specialized and Trek.
Grouptest: 27.5in Trail Forks - Seven, 130-140mm forks for every price point tested.
Classic Ride: Aviemore - Pete Scullion takes us on a tour of this area of Scotland better known for its skiing than its shredding.
Grinder Bike: Stif Morf - Is this hardtail as playful as it looks?
Through the Grinder: The team bring you their verdicts on products that have survived the first frosts of winter.
Reel Around The Mountain - An under-prepared and under-funded tour of Mont Blanc yields some great riding, some wet days and a lot of mouldy kit.
