Graeme, also know as Stormstatic on the Singletrack World forum, created the cover for issue 131, and it’s great. A great deal of sketches went into the concept for the cover, and amongst them we have this.
Lockdown was the perfect time to prepare for the next adventure, but all the time not knowing when that would be, or what conditions it would be under. There is a sense of “build it and they will come”, or “Noah diligently built his ark, and low n behold the rain did come like a vicious wet bastard, he cocked up a bit and now we don’t have any unicorns” (approximate quotation). It’s all about having a trust in the cosmic order of things, faith that your efforts will be rewarded.
What’s more, you should always keep a skateboard in your vehicle. “You didn’t stop skateboarding because you got old, You got old because you stopped skateboarding”. Jay Adams 1961-2014.
The 426er mug….
There is a very good reason we are the UK’s most caffeinated Mountain Bike magazine – we not only have our own turbo strength coffee, we also have bloody big mugs.
At 15oz / 426ml these mighty mugs are 50% bigger than standard mugs – for those moments where a regular coffee just isn’t going to cut it. Bigger wheels roll faster, and bigger coffee cups carry more caffeine and make you faster (probably).
- Ceramic (a tiny bit like expensive bearings)
- Dishwasher & microwave safe, if you are.
- 150z/426ml capacity
- 11.5 cm tall
Please note: At 50% bigger than a standard mug, tea drinkers are encouraged to plan ahead and make sure they have at least 50% more biscuits.
