In these extraordinary times, we hope that the latest issue of Cycling Plus will provide the inspiration you need to keep riding where and when you can, and dreaming of better days to come. In this latest issue we look forward to when we can all enjoy long, luxurious rides by testing five bikes that are designed to get you out and exploring the world, from traditional tourers to all-terrain bikepackers.

The X Factor

We tackle the epic Scottish pass of Bealach na Bà to put two bikes from Planet X head to head – one that focuses on light weight and one that goes for aero gains – to see which offers the most advantage.

Touching the void

Overtraining syndrome is a debilitating condition that’s slow to develop. We examine the signs, causes and cures to help you avoid its potentially disastrous effects.

Pocket rocket

At only 20 years old Tom Pidcock is already a superstar of cyclocross and he has Grand Tour ambitions on the road. We go behind the scenes to learn more about the man destined to be our country's next major champion.

All the riding and testing in this issue took place before current Covid-19 restrictions were imposed.
