You might have noticed, but just in case you hadn’t, road.cc has a new sister site and it's called, wait for it… off-road.cc.
While road.cc aims to cover all sorts of cycling as our name suggests there is a gap on the cycling spectrum that we don’t - the bit where the road ends and the trail begins. That’s where off-road.cc takes over. There will be a bit of over-lap, both sites will cover gravel and adventure bikes but off-road takes you much further off the beaten path to the place where the tyres get fatter, bikes have suspension and there’s a whole smorgasbord of different wheel size and suspension travel options to choose from.
The team at off-road.cc aim to make all that accessible especially to those new to the off-road scene or coming back to it after a few years away.
You’ll find useful buying advice:
Informed tech features - this one on disc brakes should interest any cyclist
and useful buyers guides
And loads more - including the chance to win a Trek Fuel EX worth £2,200 + £270 worth of Bontrager goodies to go with it.
