Welcome…to the all-new RiDE

Flick through this issue of RiDE and you’ll see that it has had a bit more than just a lick of paint. You’ll see a load of new features, a broader range of bikes and a bit of a redesign. However, the core of the magazine remains exactly what it was when I fell in love with it 24 years ago: RiDE is dedicated to helping you get more from biking.

Our pledge is to help you stay informed as a biker, and to help give the info you need to make the best biking decisions — whether that’s working out which is the best new-bike PCP deal (I reckon it’s a Triumph Street Triple R for £95 a month), finding somewhere new to ride this weekend (try Towton to Helmsley in Yorkshire) or explain why a Pirelli Scorpion Trail II makes your adventure bike feel amazing.

In this internet age where anyone has a voice, whether they deserve one or not, we’ll always push to help you find the best in biking and to cut out the crap.

RiDE: Telling it like it is since 1995.

Enjoy the mag.
