    Hit the button on Lifer, so I guess I’m here for the duration. I’ve been a reader since issue number 3, a subscriber for many years and have invested an insane amount of time in forum lurking. I like it on here; good people, nice chat and bikes are brilliant.

    That’s amazing! So glad to have you on board and look forward to seeing you at the office for a ride and beers as soon as this craziness is over 🙂

    Ordered coffee and a book, am already a subscriber, so that will get renewed when it comes up

    Did dress down Friday in my nice new green T-shirt, thank you. Not that anyone other than Mrs gtth and the cats noticed, mind.

    I popped some into the money pool a couple of weeks ago – however, as this continues I also picked up a gift sub for a mate and a mug.

    Thanks for being a great resource for all of us – and for continuing your efforts even now.

    Cheers, Jay

    The green t shirt is really nice. Not wearing it for hanging round the house though as I’m very likely to spill something on it.

    Just subscribed to print and digital, not been on here for a few years but want to get back into biking more, even if it is mainly road! Been a member of STW since the early days on the old Phorum site.

    I subscribed (full works) last week. I’ve been using the forum long enough, it’s saved me more than £40 a year without a shadow of a doubt, and I don’t have a local stockist of the mag, so thought why the hell not. I’m in the very fortunate position of still being employed, and actually being able to save money during this batshit craziness, I saw this thread and thought sod it, I’ll do that.

    Mountain biking is fairly essential for my well being, physically and mentally, Singletrack has been instrumental in fueling my desire to ride and really get the best out of it. I have a fairly strong, perhaps strange affinity to the institution that Singletrack has become, so cheers, and long may it continue.

    I’ve just re-read the original post: “I appreciate that a website about mountain biking comes well down anyone’s list of priorities.”

    It may well do, but for some including me, the website, magazine, podcasts and all the other things you do are higher up the list than you might think.

    As has been written about many a time, mountain biking benefits us physically, mentally, emotionally, maybe even spiritually (I like a good slug of JD in my tea on a frosty night up on the hills) and Singletrack represents all that is good about mountain biking, and therefore all of its benefits, too. So it’s important.

    It’s clear from the number of posts on this topic that I am not alone in thinking this and in hoping that you can keep doing what you do. I really am grateful for the effort you are putting in in these difficult times and will keep buying stuff and donating as much as I can to try to help.

    Just do me one favour: if things look like they may go even more South, shout louder, make a dirty great fuss about it, because I am sure there are many of us out here who will do our utmost to help. This topic is proof of that.

    Keep up the good work and stay safe.

    Donated.

    I’m always a few issues behind in my reading, but right now all those ride stories are helping my mental health so much. From laughs to just staring into the pictures and imagining where we can all go ride once were through with this to keeping my 24/7-at-home toddler entertained and yelling out “Bike!” every time he sees one as he flips through. Keep on keeping on.

    I spoke with Zoe and she advised that subscribers should receive an email with this information. Please check your spam folder and make sure the email address on your account is correct.

    Feel free to drop an email to subs@ if you want more info.

    Hello folks,

    I just wanted to add my voice to everyone else’s thanks. We really appreciate the enormous show of support from you lot. Everyone at Singletrack is still working full time, on full pay, to bring you as much distraction to your current situation as possible. We’ve not had to furlough anyone and that’s partly due to the support we’ve had.

    As Cougar mentioned, if you’ve subscribed in the last few days, you won’t be due a physical magazine until the next issue is due in early June. However, your Premier membership does give you instant access to the pdfs and interactive iPad editions of the current issue – and access to 130 back issues’ of content, which we hope should keep you busy.

    We hope that we’ll get a chance to thank you all in person before the end of the year. So let us know where you’ll all be – whether that’s the rescheduled Malverns, or just a pub in the Dales and we’ll see if someone’s around to bump elbows with you and thank you in person.

    It’s a funny old mountain biking world – both full of endless horizons with a global reach, yet still a small, intimate club of likeminded, loveable idiots. Hopefully we can continue to bring that idea over on the pages (both physical and digital) of Singletrack.

    Thanks again!

    leffeboy – you’re dead right but still too many posters who choose to ignore and not actively support Singletrack.
    Starting threads, posting prolifically on current affairs topics (covid-19, kier starmer and brexit as examples), posting humorous quips or humble bragging about jet-setting lifestyles without making a financial contribution is free loading – just taking the piss.
    Yes, I’ve said it before and will continue banging the drum; they know who they are.

    without making a financial contribution is free loading – just taking the piss.

    To be fair, many still support the site indirectly via advertising revenue. A subscription isn’t mandatory to use the site.

    A few of those openly boast about actively blocking ads though. Now, that is taking the piss.

    Completely fails to understand how the internet works….

    Their posts are the content people come to see. More content gets more views, more views get more ad views, more ad views generate more revenue.

    You need to get off your high horse, the thin air is addling your brain.
