+ 2018 Calendar
Within Singletrack Issue #116 –
Don’t Look Down! – Pete Scullion takes a precarious trip across the lesser-ridden ridges of the Alps.
Trail Hunter – Tom Fenton tells you why Cross Fell and High Cup Nick need to be on your must-ride list. Just bring sandwiches. Lots of them.
Bike test – Full suspension XC bikes. Three long-legged ride/race bikes from Giant, Specialized and Scott
Group Test – David Hayward tests sub-£1500 carbon wheelsets. At this price, they’re still a major investment, so we’ve done our best to thrash them all.
Porage People – Bike race meets survival challenge meets Scrabble and It’s a Knockout! Welcome to the weird world of the invitational (Wo)Man of Porage bike race.
Classic Ride – The Purbeck Hills, with Tom Hutton. Tom Hutton shows us that south coast riding is far from flat. It’s not always sunny there either.
Editor’s Choice – We pick the products, places and events that have left an impression on us this year. From bike races to gears and gadgets. This is the stuff we really rate!
Room 101 – Charlie takes a look at your complaints and throws them into Room 101 if there’s due cause. And if there isn’t, he throws you in instead.
Column – Our award winning columnist Jason Miles brings us more pearls of wisdom and wit.
And in our subscriber-only section –
Every subscriber copy of Singletrack magazine includes Premier Edition content, with extra features that are just not available in newsagent copies of Singletrack. The Premier Edition also has a cover free from attention grabbing headlines, which results in it looking lovelier on your coffee table. That’s less stuff ON, and more stuff IN 🙂
For Issue 116, the extra features are –
Travel Feature – Fjord Focus. Touring Norway’s best bike spots on a boat. Can there be a better way of seeing the place?
Berne Broudy heads to Norway to discover the trails that the locals themselves are only just discovering. Hike a bike, slippery rocks and trail for miles – and you get to sleep on a boat and wake up in a new location for fresh trails the next day. Sounds like a winning combination to us.
Industry – Trickstuff.
Singletrack travelled to Germany to see the surprisingly low-key, family-like atmosphere at Trickstuff, producers of some of the world’s most precisely engineered brakes and components.
Column – Lifecycle of a Riding Spot: a tragedy told in 11 chapters.
Antony de Heveningham charts the rise and fall, rise and fall of your local woods.
