Wheels and Fins

Joss Bay in Kent offers some fine surfing.

The only thing that could make the vibe

any more enjoyable is wrapping a two-day

festival around the coastline and filling it

with live music stages, an international

film showcase, a skateboarding

championship, and paddleboarding and

yoga sessions at the beach. Possibly the

most chilled festival you’ll ever sunbathe,

swim, surf and skate at.

RED BULL HARDLINE

One of the toughest downhill MTB races just doubled down on its

roughneck reputation, running for two days in a row for the first

time in its six-year history. The brain-and-brawnchild of (possibly

sadistic) pro rider Dan Atheron, this woodland course in the

Welsh hills features gargantuan jumps, drops and a signature

16m road-gap leap. For last year’s event, eventually won by his

younger brother Gee (also a first), Dan dug out even longer leaps.

Find out what fiendish plans he’s formulated this time around.

Jewel of

the Empire

Always fancied a trip on the

Orient Express, but could never

afford it? Here’s a close second:

an immersive experience aboard

a fictional train where a murder

may occur. What is certain to

happen is a four-course meal

created by 2018 MasterChef:

Laurence Henry. Catch the train

before it departs for good.
