Editors’ Choice 2021
Singletrack Staffers pick the standout products and locations of the year
2021 felt a little like approaching that nemesis feature on the trail: you roll up to it full of optimism, then at the last minute you pull on the brakes in an attack of ‘nope’/ Whether it was a ping that put paid to another plan, or a shipping container that didn’t arrive as expected (by now, perhaps, that should be ‘as expected, a shipping container didn’t arrive’), we had plenty of interruptions along the way. However, our Northern hill had an unusually dry summer, so we managed a decent spell of short-sleeved riding on our doorstep, and there were a few chances to get further afield that we grasped and enjoyed. Like that trail feature, once we cleaned it, the elation at meeting friends, riding new trails and generally enjoying bikes was all the more sweeter.
