Tracey Croke takes us to the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, which is becoming Europe's rising star of adventure travel.
We love our trail dogs and feature four of them in this issue! Cecile Gambin managed to capture some fantastic photos and put a fun spin on the interview.
Personal stories are from Sarah Hauser who shares how fell in love with cyclocross (the season starts soon!) and from Anne Henmi, who is learning to rock the bike parks and take her riding to a whole new level.
Jaclyn Delacroix tells us the seven things she's learned as a personal trainer, and makes our training excuses invalid. Plus learn the essentials to carry in our first aid kit from Dr Robyn Prescott, while Meagan Broughton shares her favourite post-ride meal for hungry mountain bikers.
