The latest issue of MBR is out now, packed full of inspiring ideas and route maps to help you find new places to get out and ride.
What about the magazine itself? Here’s a taste of what you’ll find inside…
- Discount bike test: January may be yonks away, but 2014 bikes are already on sale. We select four bargain bikes to find out which one offers the best value. Includes the Norco Sight Alloy 7 1.5 (15% off), Saracen’s Kili Flyer 122 (31% off) and the Specialized Camber (save 13%)
- We had a bit of trouble finding Britain’s Best Singletrack this month, mainly because it was hidden under 6ft high bracken. Persevere, as we did, and this Brecon Beacons epic is well worth the effort
- Knees probably get the roughest ride of any joint in the body off-road, so it’s wise to keep them protected. We’ve tested 12 sets of kneepads in this month’s grouptest.
- We’ve also got a bumper feast of first rides, including the Juliana Roubion, Trek X-Caliber, Orange Alpine 160 RS, Canyon Grand Canyon CF SL 6.9, KTM Lycan 272, Niner RIP 9 and Scott Genius LT 700 Tuned. There’s a visual feast from two brothers’ road trip around Utah and vital tips to help you nail the tricky climb that has long been your nemesis.
