Going to Extremes

Erm, I thought this was a desert? [I'm a GIF, click me!]
It’s always hot and dry in Utah, right? Except when you’re caught in a flash-flood summer thunderstorm. Washed away, baked dry, and sweating, Adam Klimek and pals take on the White Rim trail.

Tramping In Torridon

Hot water not included.

Joe Delves packs friends, bikes, camping gear and a dog and seeks a low cost getaway in Torridon, where the trails are good enough to be worth the effort getting there.

Tour de France The Fun Way

Better that sweating your way up, surely?

While the roadies are pedalling up these classic TdF climbs, enduro rider Jerome Clementz is whooping his way back down them, taking the rocky switchbacks and forest trails.

Classic Ride: Helvellyn

Where's the path?

Which way should you go up this Lakeland must-do? And which way should you come down? There’s much debate to be had about the best routes on Helvellyn, but everyone agrees you have to ride one of them at least once. James Vincent takes us on his pick of the options.

Staying Professional

UCI World Cup Downhill mountain bike racing at Fort William, Scotland, UK. June 2009

Geoff Waugh talks to Scott Beaumont about getting - and keeping - sponsors. Behind the Insta-bangers and high fives, it’s more businesslike than you might think.

Bike Test: British 29ers

There are many ways to build a bike.

British manufacturing ain’t dead. We test out three full suspension 29ers from Orange, Robot Bike Co. and Swarf that showcase the range of modern manufacturing skills and processes currently happening in the UK.

Interview: Dan Stanton

At play, or at work?

Ian Bailey talks philosophy and company ethos and ‘a different kind of capitalism’ with the man behind Stanton bikes.

Plus, in our Premier Edition, only available to Subscribers, from our shop, or from our Premier Dealers, you'll find the following bonus content:

The First Trail Centre

There's a fork in the trail...

Chipps tells the story of the UK’s oldest trail centre: Coed Y Brenin, where the first trails still offer great riding, with the bonus of being away from the crowds.

Hutchinson Tyres


James Vincent goes on a whirlwind tour of the French home of Hutchinson tyres. It’s not quite the smoky black inferno you might have imagined.

Last Word

Mike Braybrook rails against the lazy line choices that modern trail bikes encourage us to take.
