I’ve stepped back a bit this issue to concentrate on finishing my PhD thesis but have really enjoyed seeing the amount of good writing rolling in from our other contributors. Andy Blair shares some of the training techniques that compliment on bike miles, Brett Bellchambers provides his thoughts the anti-training approach to world domination and I found myself penning a column about the fun I’ve been having on my road bike lately (gasp!). Alongside a stack of other content, hopefully the new issue is a healthy antidote to rainy days and cold morning starts. It’ll be hitting stands from Monday. Enjoy!
