Get ready for the Powys Devil, Sun 20th Aug

There are just four weeks to go until the next Drover Cycles Sportive – the 2017 Powys Devil – and we’ve got out woolly helpers out checking the route! This one is on our home turf and it’s going to be a cracker. For 2017 we’ve added in a killer loop taking in The Tumble and the long route now creeps over the 200km mark. If that sounds a little too much for you we’ve got two shorter options as well, all superbly signposted and scenically unbeatable. Anna’s homemade cakes will be keeping everyone...

Best winter mountain bike tyre – review…

Mountain Bike Rider magazine put winter mountain bike tyres under the spotlight in the latest issue – and they reckon Schwalbe’s Magic Mary is the best bet for getting a grip on riding in the slop.
