In the latest issue of Cycling Plus we hit the roads to rate five titanium bikes that have been built to last you a lifetime, providing light weight and comfort in abundance. Is one of them the best choice for you?
We continue to look away from carbon with a first ride of Cannondale’s new aluminium CAAD13… and it’s one of the best bikes we’ve ever tested. There are also new bikes from Focus, Vitus, Saffron, Boardman, Specialized and more.
We run the rule over some of the best kit to keep you riding this autumn, look at the bad habits that are holding you back and how you can kick them, plus we ask the experts how women should train differently from men to maximise their gains.
Ned Boulting solves his lifelong bicycle bell dilemma by fitting a clown horn to his commuter, and we suffer for fun on the storied, tortuous slopes of Mont Ventoux.
There’s also an extra mag in the shape of our Gravel Guide, with all the inspiration you need to take your riding into unchartered territory.
Paul is deputy editor of Cycling Plus, Britain's best selling road cycling magazine. A lifelong advocate of the never sacrifice style for speed credo, he has never come close to winning anything but did at least achieve one long-held cycling ambition in 2015 when he became an ancien of the 1200km Paris-Brest-Paris randonneé.
