Sit back and prepare to let your mind wonder to the volcanic landscapes of Iceland, the stunning valleys of the Lake District, and the hidden mountain roads of Switzerland’s Entlebuch region…

January: Nordic Nirvana

January’s image depicts Maia Andreas astride her Triumph Tiger 900 as she explores the blackened, volcanic landscapes of Iceland.

Shot by her husband and regular ABR contributor, Lennart Andreas, the image perfectly captures the experience of exploring a dramatic, alien landscape on two wheels. In the distance, a geyser erupts, adding a beautiful depth to the shot.

It’s the perfect image to have hanging on your wall in a month when it’s easy to feel blue. Let it inspire you on those short, dark days and leaf to thoughts of adventures on two wheels.

February: Wainright’s Coast to Coast

From Iceland we return closer to home, to the wonderful Lake District. The photo for February’s ride depicts ABR’s James Oxley riding a KTM 890 Adventure through the majestic Wasdale Valley with towering Lakeland fells looming close by.

The photo was taken by Ollie Rooke when the pair rode a beautiful coast-to-coast route for issue 65 of Adventure Bike Rider magazine. It’s the perfect reminder that there’s so much to see and so many incredible roads to ride in the UK.

March: Switzerland’s Hidden Gem

There’s a lot more to riding in Switzerland than mountain passes, and March’s photo demonstrates that wonderfully. It shows Lennart Andreas riding through Entlebuch in Central Switzerland, an area that’s often overlooked by bikers heading east out of the UK.

Lennart introduced us to this are in issue 69 of Adventure Bike Rider when he wrote an insightful Insider’s Guide to riding in the area. By March, spring is often in the air and the weather’s looking better, so use this month’s photo to inspire you to blow away the cobwebs of winter.
