- Chatel, which one trail should I not miss?
Thank you all again for your great advice, sadly it was of no real use as I landed in Chatel in monsoon season. I enjoyed or endured about 4 hrs in the bike park with regular coffee/stove hugging stops to try and prevent the shivers on day one, day two’s XC attempt was foiled by a broken lift in Morgins, so back to the bike park for more mud surfing shenanigans!
Glad I packed plenty of clothing and a spare Swampthing shod front wheel. The trails were strangely gripping though!
I saw slush at the top, a broken bridge at the bottom and two poor French lads get a proper bollocking from a digger driver, even though there were no signs to say that Ride Humble was shut for repairs 🙂
RickyRack was the only clean bit of trail and rode well in the middle section, nice rocky trail to offset the mud.
I felt very sorry for the trailbuilders, the damage will no doubt take some sorting out..
All of which means I’ll just have to go back at some point 🙂
The second week we camped near Annecy and the sun came back out to play. I also found those trails I’d been dreaming of back in Blighty so my faith was restored 🙂Posted 3 years ago
I’ll start a separate thread on Annecy though as the only one I found is closed.
