Here at BikeRadar we’re lucky enough to have access to an archive of photographs that have either been taken for or featured in our sister magazines (Mountain Biking UK, Cycling Plus, What Mountain Bike and Procycling).
We thought it time to start unearthing some of these hidden gems and sharing across our social networks as part of our daily ‘Afternoon Getaway’ – a chance to sit back and escape for a few minutes, dream of riding and admire some amazing photography…
It was this awe inspiring image by Dan Milner of Les Deux Alpes that kicked off the ‘Afternoon Getaway’ trend.
This shot of two riders on the North York Moors seemed the perfect choice for our Valentine’s day photo – credit to Russell Burton for the shot that appeared in Cycling Plus issue 240.
In the midst of cold winter mornings and dark nights, dry, dusty singletrack is the thing of dreams. This picture was picked after a suggestion by Peter Cookson who wanted to see ‘singletrack in the Summer.’ We think Dan Milner has captured this perfectly.
This photo was picked after a suggestion by Craig Ireland wanting to see some ‘epic Scottish singletrack.’ The photo appeared in Mountain Biking UK issue 246, taken by Russell Burton, with the image notes just stating ‘Scotland, secret trail.’
This pretty magical shot of the Western Dales, taken by Russell Burton, was a lucky find, dug up from Mountain Biking UK issue 260. The best comment on this image came from one of our Facebook followers Sean Booker, ‘ahh Mordor. There’s some good riding there…’
This picture taken in Switzerland, Val d’Anniviers, sums up the ‘Afternoon Getaway,’ complete escape from all around you. This photograph was featured in Mountain Biking UK issue 246 by patriceschreyer.com.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our ‘Afternoon Getaway’ round-up.
