It’s the New Year, and that means you’ll be needing issue 135 to stave of those January blues. And what a stonker it is, featuring a drop-dead spectacular ride in Utah, USA, where the canyons run deep and the Fall leaves quiver; a misty-eyed look back at UK club cycling in the 1970s and 1980s (there were a lot of woolly hats and football socks); and an in-depth interview with Trek-Segafredo ace and time-trial world champ, Ellen van Dijk.
Bikes this month come in the form of Enve’s exquisitely crafted new road bike, Argonaut’s exquisitely brilliant and eye-wateringly expensive RM3, Fairlight’s 753 steel-is-still-real racer, and BMC’s latest entry into the gravel scene, the Kaius. We also talk long-distance racing with Lael Wilcox, tackle an achingly beautiful gravel ride in Scotland and finally chart the evolution of one of cycling’s most ground-breaking bikes. Which one? You’ll have to buy issue 135 to find out.
