RiDE December 2021

Welcome to the December issue of RiDE. It’s been a funny old year for bike sales and they’ve never been in as much demand for years. We all know that the value of used bikes has been going through the roof as punters are desperate to buy, but new bike sales are well up, too.

But what’s the best bike to buy? Hopefully this mag will give you some indication. We assembled six of the most outstanding bikes of 2021 then gave them to a panel of RiDE readers to help find the best new bike of 2021. RiDE’s People’s Bike of The Year is the only feature of its kind where the best bike is 100% chosen by normal bikers rather than the usual biking press.

From hundreds of applicants, we assembled a representative cross-section of bike-buying British bikers who then explained what works for them, what doesn’t and which bikes of the crop launched this year float their boat the most. Their opinions are priceless and more than one surprise is sprung along the way – with no filter, they really tell it like it is. The opinions and knowledge borne of real riders is at the heart of everything that RiDE stands for.
