Singletrack Reader Holiday 2009 – With Flow MTB
Dates: July 25th – August 1st 2009.
Flow MTB are based in the French mountain resort of Morzine and have been running guided mountain biking holidays for several years. They’ve built up a very high reputation for not only the quality of the trails but also the aprez ride experience, quality of accommodation and friendly hospitality. Based centrally in the town of Morzine, the lift to the mountain is close by. They offer all styles of riding and cater for all abilities, from gentle xc bimbles to full faced, gravity assisted, adrenalin pumping rides on some of the finest trails in the Alps.
For 2009 we are doing a “Grinder Week” theme. Singletrack staff will be joining forces with Flow qualified guides to give every guest the chance to not only ride the mountain but ride it on a large fleet of high quality test bikes from all over the industry. But not just bikes. Waiting for you will be a veritable treasure trove of hardware and software for you to try out.
