ED’S LET­TER

Bikes Etc - - CONTENTS - Nick Soldinger, Ed­i­tor

Uh-oh, it looks like we’re run­ning out of year! Be­fore we know it, many of us will be moth­balling our bikes for the win­ter months and crack­ing out the eggnog. Well, that would be a pes­simist’s take on things. The op­ti­mistic po­si­tion (which is the one I al­ways strictly ad­here to) is that there’s still plenty of fun to be had out of 2017 as we roll to­wards the months with a ‘ber’ at the end of their name. If the UK isn’t go­ing to cough up an In­dian sum­mer – al­though I haven’t given up hope of one just yet – there are still plenty of places within easy reach of our shores where you can grab a cheap but in­cred­i­bly cheer­ful break that’ll al­low you to have one more ride in the sun­shine. To sow that seed, turn to page 30 where you’ll find a list of 10 week­end get­aways for you and your bike. All are just a a cou­ple of hours’ flight time from your lo­cal air­port and you don’t have to be a mil­lion­aire to en­joy the var­i­ous splen­dours they of­fer, ei­ther. You’ll also find this is­sue busy with ad­vice on how to ride bet­ter and in greater com­fort, along with round-ups of all the lat­est gear and kit. In fact ev­ery­thing in here is de­signed to help you truly squeeze ev­ery last drop of cy­cling plea­sure from what this not-quite-past-it-yet year still has to of­fer. En­joy!
