 Ride magazine March 2015 cover


Riding home from the office last night I had to improvise a diversion to avoid some kind of blue-lit armageddon on my usual route. It was cold and it was dark, but on the plus side I was riding the splendid new BMW R1200R and soon found myself on the B660, one of the finest roads in this part of the world.

What might have been a 10-minute detour turned into an extra half hour, and my most enjoyable ride so far this year.

The rides you don’t plan can be great, but you can’t rely on them. That’s why, starting in this issue, we’re going to be doing a lot more to suggest great rides to great events, such as the Touratech weekend in Wales previewed in this issue.

As much as anything in this life is certain, you’ll enjoy getting there and being there

Enjoy the issue
