The November edition of Cycling Plus is out now!

Next year's bikes now…

In this issue we take a look at the wallet-tempters you can expect to see hitting bike stores near you in 2017 with our round-up of the latest launches from the likes of Colnago, Cannondale, Focus, Lapierre, BMC and 3T — it's safe to say that your hand will be twitching above your credit card as you read.

It's also that time of year again, with the temperatures dropping, the nights drawing in and a distant waft of the frites vans firing up their fryers in Belgium, so we look at six cyclocross bikes that will serve you well in the mud, and for those committed to the road we gather together some of the best lights to keep you safe in the dark and jackets to keep you dry in the wet.

We also check out new bikes from Time, Giant, Bianchi, GT and more, as well as the latest kit from SRAM, DT Swiss, Shimano and others.

Elsewhere we ride from Land's End to John O'Groats, while Tim Moore travels the entire 10,000km length of the old Iron Curtain on a weighty East German shopper. Talking of things you shouldn't do, we also take a look at some of the tricks the pros use that you should think twice about (and offer up a few tips if you do decide to go for it).
