FROM THE EDITOR...
While the picture above provides ample evidence as to why I’ve never been asked by the magazine’s art team to appear on the cover it does, at least, prove that I achieved another cycling first in 2016 to accompany my recent attempt at cyclo-cross. In late November myself, senior art editor Steve and ad man Adrian raced a duathlon. For me it was, like CX, ticking off a discipline that I’d long promised to do. And, like my time racing in the mud, I came away with that warm glow of satisfaction you get from doing something that – perhaps to your surprise – you thoroughly enjoy. I’ll be looking for other bike-based firsts in 2017 – suggestions welcome – and I hope that you will be too. It’s a great way of
reminding yourself of the fun to be had on two wheels!
