In this issue we headed to the Long Mynd in Shropshire to test out three bikes all coming in at around the £1000 mark. We took the Giant Defy 1 disc, Whyte Dorset and the B’Twin Mach 720 and took them around an 82km route with 1850m of climbing. This was my first time to the Long Mynd area and once up on high ground you really were spoilt for views. We were also given an amazing display from the huge numbers of paragliders and hang gliders soaring through the air. I have also included some images that didn’t make the article that I quite like.
