Flights booked and confirmation email received so I will be going to the Alps to do the Passportes for the first time this year. I am looking for a bit of guidance from those that have done the Passportes previously as to whether body armour/full face helmets are required or recommended?
All the riding I do is in the lakes and I don’t bother with any body armour. I just use my standard helmet. This includes Garburn, Gatesgarth, Nan Bield, Skiddaw/Ullock Pike etc..
I will be taking my Lapierre Spicy so I wont be holding back either but I don’t own any armour or full facer so I will need to be buying some if needed.
