The Komoot x BikeRadar webinar series will help you plan the ideal route, regardless of whether you’re a road rider, gravel rider or planning a multi-day trip (once coronavirus restrictions are lifted, of course).

Komoot Campfires

Komoot has also joined forces with our sister magazines, MBUK and Cycling Plus, for the Komoot Campfires series.

There’s nothing quite like kicking back around a campfire and swapping stories about past adventures and bucket-list rides. The Komoot Campfires are live-streamed events with Komoot ambassadors, who will share their future plans, favourite routes and most memorable adventures.

The first event on 14 May will feature Scotty Laughland, whose ambition is to ride the best trails in the world and film them to share.

You’ll be able to watch Scotty’s latest adventure film – featuring a trip to Jamaica – followed by a Q&A, where you can ask him anything from how he makes his films to where you can find the best singletrack in Scotland.
