    If you want to get to big mountains for a weekend then as close as possible would be a good start. Morzine/Les Gets is probably the closest in the Alps but that is still 8 hours from Calais. If there are a few of you and you drive through the night then it might work. There is camping and some good trails with jumps and the like.

    Go for a week! You know it makes sense 🙂 We drive down with all the kit then have had a few of the people who can’t get a week off work fly down and join us. A week isn’t much more expensive than a weekend if you are doing it on the cheap

    Probably superbesse in the Auvergne is the closest park. It’s a long way for a weekend though!

    There is a small bike park in the ardenne in Belgium, only 400m of vertical and only open on the weekend. Might be ok for a weekend though.

    Cazum – we have done a similar thing the last 2 years. We chose Morzine/Les Gets early season as it is the only place that opens in July. Have a look at somewhere like RidersRetreat, they do short let apartments for the weekend which won’t cost much more than a campsite, have secure bike storage/parking, and if it does rin out there, it is big rain!!

    hey guys

    a few of our facebook group are thinking about heading over the france and hitting some big mountain stuff 🙂 for a long weekend next year we are looking to travel over by car (with our bikes) and camp..

    if there is somewhere with jumps ect (small ish ones ) that would be cool 🙂
