Friday morning's weather set the tone for what we can expect over the weekend, heavy rain followed by some pretty pleasant temperatures and sunshine. In brief Saturday will be the worst day with heavy rain but by Sunday things will clear up a bit and there's a good chance you'll see some sun.

So, what do you need to know about the weather this weekend?

ABR Pic of the Week winner announced
Written by Bryn   

Blimey! It's that time of the week again when we pick one lucky winner for our Pic of the Week competition. Thank you to all ABRs who sent in their shots for consideration and (I know we may say this most weeks) we've been sent in some awesome shots and its been more difficult than ever to choose this week's winner.

After painstaking deliberation and a few disagreements in the office we can announce that this week's Pic of the Week winner is...Andrew Davies with this shot of his Yamaha XT660Z Tenere almost buried in snow. A bit of a contrast to the high temperatures we're currently experiencing!

ABR Pic of the Week

Congratulations to Andrew, the proud new owner of an ABR beanie (you'll need it in that snow!) and two ABR stickers!

We had such a hard time choosing the winner this week, so if you'd like to see the competition Andrew was up against click 'Read more'.

ABR Weekend Weather
Written by Bryn   

The weather over the last few weeks has been pretty typical of a British summer and it hasn't quite decided if it's going to be rainy or sunny. On the plus side though temperatures have remained pretty high and it's still definitely warm enough to be riding without your thermals!

But what's the weather going to be doing this weekend? Click 'Read more' to find out!

It's that time of the week again folks! As always, we've been sent in some fantastic photos from members of www.adventurebikerider.com for our Pic of the Week competition. Unfortunately, there can be but one winner and so we've been through the painstaking task of picking the best of the bunch and this week we can proudly announce that the winner is...Roy Nicol!

Roy took this beautiful shot when he was touring in Morocco recently and if this doesn't get your adventure taste buds tingling we're not sure what will.

Tuesday's travel tip: Sleeping mats
Written by Bryn   

A wise man once told me that sleep is one of the most important things our body needs in order to function properly. Without it we're boring caffeine-fuelled zombies who are incapable of doing much at all, but with it we're happy, alert, and most importantly, ready to ride.

According to the National Institute of Health, the required amount of sleep for the average adult is eight hours. That means (if you're average) you're spending toughly 33 percent of your adventures tucked up in a sleeping bag catching some Z's.

Given this information, it seems all the more likely that you'll want to make your sleeping area as warm and as comfortable as possible.
