In the latest, new look issue of Cycling Plus we take a look at five bikes from British brands that we think can mix it with the best, plus we take the bikes of the last two UCI world champions – Alejandro Valverde’s Canyon Ultimate and Peter Sagan’s Specialized Venge – to this year’s course in Yorkshire for a head-to-head. We also look at new bikes from Bianchi, Trek, Specialized and more.
With summer still in full swing we try out the jerseys and shorts that will keep you comfortable on long, hot days on the bike, plus new gear from Garmin, Continental, Zipp, Bont, Fizik and more.
Elsewhere we hit the wind tunnel to learn how we can all get faster without the expense (monetary or physical), speak to the ultra-distance record holders to get their expert advice on upping your mileage, and put neurostimulation as a performance aid to the test in the Italian Alps.
Our Big Ride tackles three Swiss passes, including the legendary Gotthard, in the space of just 100 stunning kilometres, and we also look at how to tackle your first multi-day event and improve your recovery with better sleep.
Plus we have a 28-page guide to this year’s Tour of Britain, including details of every stage, an introduction to all the teams and some advice about what to look out for as the race unfolds.
