This month journalist Dan Milner is on hand to help you plan your next big trip, whether it be ideas to spice up your weekend or planning a globe-trotting adventure. Meanwhile Tom, the technical editor of What Mountain Bike mag, takes us on a trip across the south of Iceland and Pete Scullion shows us the best of the Pyrenees. You will also get all the usual Wrecked and Rated kit with a seasonal winter glove Mini Test and a group test of 1x cranksets.
As it's the beginning of a new year our team have brand new long term test bike which we introduce in this issue. The whole team are busy getting to know their new steeds, setting them up and covering them in mud for the first time!
We also have a good look at plus-sized hardtails in our bike test – the team loved giving the big volume tyres a razz! We all agreed, they look pretty rad!
