This is Cyclist, but not as you know it – issue 147 is a whole new look from cover to cover, with all-new sections and slick new design, but still stuffed with the same wild rides, in-depth stories and knowledgeable reviews.
This month we take on Britain’s hardest sportive, the Fred Whitton Challenge, in the Lake District, then we pop back again to check out the mad bikes at the National Hill Climb Championships (who said 5kg is dangerously light?). Our Big Ride is a hidden gem in Spain, the fearsomely beautiful Mont Caro, then back in Essex we meet up with Alex Dowsett for a candid chat on what being a pro is really like. We visit the Col de Vars for our Classic Climb; examine the dark financial truth behind women’s racing; meet Gordy, one of the oldest bike mechanics in Britain; and test the new Cannondale SuperSix Evo, GT Grade and Shimano GRX gravel groupset plus a bunch more components and kit.
We’re really proud of the new mag, and we reckon you’ll love it too.
