This issue’s awesome cover shot by Sven Martin features one of the raddest and nicest riders they’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, Anka Martin, shredding prime New Zealand trail with Sarah Leishman.
Inside the cover, Singletrack’s art editor pops her editorial cherry on a trip to discover what Ibiza has to offer to mountain bikers once the clubbers have all gone home, and Alec Connon explores a stretch of the Colorado Trail, allegedly America’s most beautiful singletrack, with stunning photography from Cass Gilbert.
Back on these shores Singletrack take a look at how riders in Devon are working to restore the Haldon Forest trails after the winter storms, while at the other end of the country Chipps rides the whole West Highland Way with Nigel Page in tow.
We Work Here visits Renthal, purveyor and engineer of shiny parts galore, and Steve, Barney and Jenn explore the trails round Bakewell, Derbyshire.
It’s endurance, not enduro! This issue’s bike test puts long distance full sussers from Canyon, Giant and Salsa through their paces and tests the bikepacking set-ups you might want to hang off them, too.
They’ve dedicated the issue to Steve Worland and written a tribute to the John Peel of mountain biking, already sadly missed. There are columns from Chipps, Benji and Meerkat, Jewel of the Isle stops off at South Mimms, and last but not least there’s the usual plethora of ground-up Grinder products to have you dribbling and discussing. Phew!
