In this latest issue the Cycling Plus team speak to the key workers for whom the bike has proved indispensable during lockdown. Cycling Plus readers reveal how buying an e-road bike has transformed their riding after injury and illness, plus there’s a free, 48-page Britain by Bike supplement that celebrates the best rides around the UK – from Inverness to Truro – with full route details, Komoot links and information on the best cafes, pubs, bike shops and picnic areas to stop off at en route.
Also in this issue, chief technical editor Warren Rossiter gets first rides of the Cairn E-Adventure 1.0 and Wilier Filante SLR road bike while Matthew Loveridge takes the gravel-curious mile-munching Merida Scultura Endurance 7000-E out for a spin.
A grand day out
Spending a £1000 on a bike is a big step up for those who want to get serious about cycling. We reveal four of the most wallet-friendly, best bang-for-your-buck bikes with appearances from Boardman, Vitus, Giant and Genesis.
With the promise of more efficient power transfer it makes sense to get stuck in and go with clipless pedals. The Cycling Plus team set to work finding out which are the top 10 pedals and what to look out for when making that purchase.
Small change, big rewards
From burnout to back problems to just plain old boredom, when training goes wrong it’s easy to find yourself stuck in a rut. James Witts takes the eight most common issues and talks to celebrity riders and experts about how to go about setting it right.
A Welsh adventure
Trevor Ward explores the path less trodden on a visit to a deserted mid-Wales where he takes on the formidable, and notorious, Bwlch y Groes (Pass of the Cross) after which Trevor finds himself washed up on the shore of Lake Vyrnwy.
