May 2018

Most of us would like to ride more — yes, we all need more time, but sometimes we also need a reason to go further afield than our regular routes. This is where the Great British Ride Out comes in. With almost 200 landmarks across the length of Britain — from castles to cafés, dealerships to lighthouses — there are loads of destinations.

We’re going to spend the summer searching for the best routes between whichever of the numerous points of interest take our fancy. I’ve already used it to plan RiDE’s South Coast 500. We’d like you to get involved too: use a few of our checkpoints to plan your own Great British Ride Out, go for a great ride, then share your route with us.

Also what better time to give your riding gear the once-over? Check out our Free gear guide with this month's issue with the latest helmets, leathers, gloves, boots and more for every budget and style.

Enjoy the mag — and enjoy your summer’s riding
