ABR's weekend ride: Crossing the Pennines on the A686
Written by Rob Slade   

This week's installment features the dramatic A686 from Penrith to Haydon Bridge and it's one of those roads that is begging for you to ride it. The road crosses the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as the name suggests, it takes in some amazing scenery.

Incorporating the Hartside Pass, this 35-mile stretch will leave you smiling from ear to ear by the end of it with plenty of tight corners and hairpin bends. It also involves roughly 1,904ft of climbing and once you get to the top you’ll be able to take in the stunning panoramic views while having a brew at the café.

Video of the week: Around the World with Austin Vince
Written by Rob Slade   

"When you get up in the morning you’ve only gotta' worry about three things. One, we need petrol, where are we gonna' get it. Two, we need some food, where are we gonna' get it. Three, we need beer, where are we gonna get it. And that’s all you have to worry about all day every day until something goes wrong, and that’s when the fun starts."

Those are the words of Gerald Vince who, along with brother Austin Vince and seven of their mates, departed on a motorcycle journey taking one of the longest routes around the world in 1995. They covered 40,000 miles, 44 countries and did it completely unsupported. They called it Mondo Enduro and you can see footage and hear from Austin and Gerald in this week's video.

The project started in 2001 but really took off in 2003 when they introduced a data-logging project into MotoGP to understand the forces and crash dynamics of racers. As it is now hitting the European market, we're looking back at how the Tech-Air came to be.
