Saddle Up in Style

High performance, innovation and distinctive style combine in the J.Laverack Aston Martin .1R bicycle – a collaboration between Aston Martin and titanium bicycle specialist J.Laverack.

The visually boltless design prioritizes elegance and beauty as well as comfort and performance.

“The J.Laverack Aston Martin .1R is essentially a titanium hypercar on two wheels,” said Marek Reichman, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer at Aston Martin.

“The simple, clever genius is how we’ve fused the engineering advancements throughout the bike with a purity of performance design to deliver a viscerally exhilarating riding experience. The result is a distinctive form, born through tradition and technology, and handcrafted using only the most advanced materials, befitting the pedigrees and forward-thinking natures of our two iconic British companies.”

An Office at Sea

In response to the rise in remote working, small ship cruise line Azamara has launched a new program for business professionals seeking to combine work with travel.

The Work & Wander program offers those wanting to work at sea access to Starlink’s high-speed internet, office equipment and dedicated IT support.

“We are excited to introduce our ‘Work & Wander’ package, giving professionals the opportunity to take their work with them as they set sail,” Azamara President Carol Cabezas said.

“Our guests already consider our ships to be a home away from home, and now our ships can be their floating office too, as we bring them to some of the most captivating destinations around the world.”

The new addition follows the launch of Extended Destination Days, which offer 10 or more hours in port, giving guests more time to balance work and Azamara’s immersive travel experiences.
