Not the coolest name, but a very capable best day-tyre that inspires confidence and provides a good level of comfort. They’re not the cheapest but they pack a solid punch.

The High Road is on our Editor’s Choice list this year thanks to its superb level of performance. With low rolling resistance and grip in spades it also happens to be pretty supple and comfortable. The perfect all-rounder.

It’s amazing how little attention many of us pay to our tyres. We tend to find one that works well and stick to that, you’ll trade tales about how a friend of a friend once had a problem with X brand’s winter tyre and we’ll never try them, even if they’re the best seller in the market.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
