What’s 9.5km long, 682m tall and arcs and twists to make Torvill and Dean weep? Oh – and get this – you can actually travel there? Yes, it’s the Sa Calobra in Mallorca, arguably cycling’s most beautiful road and the very place for this month’s Classic Climb. But it’s not alone, as joining it for Cyclist issue 117 is our Big Ride through the crags and crevices of the French Pyrenees and Day 11 of JOGLE, where we take on Wales’ most brutal ascent, the Devil’s Staircase.
This month Richard Moore discusses the latest developments in creating a proper Women’s Tour de France (it’s finally going to happen!), plus we discuss the moves and shakes in the murky world of cycling transfers. Our training expert explains how many calories is enough, then there’s a step-by-step yoga plan to iron out all those wfh and bike-related niggles. And speaking of bikes, we have Ineos’s all-new Pinarello F, a showcase of our four favourite gravel bikes, plus three new rides on test from women’s brand Liv, titanium specialists J.Laverack and industry stalwarts Vitus.
