MTB in France – were would you buy a property? (not to expensive!) Pyrenees?
Where is the best area in France for riding off road?Posted 8 years ago
Is there any were that really embraces mountain bikes + has an open mind to their potential as a source of employment + tourism?
Excluding the big ski resorts – Cham, Morzine et al – where property can be silly money!
There must be a husge area of untapped potential somewhere out there? Any big French bike parks?
I was missing the UK and remembering all the good stuff, until I went back for a weekend, the first time since we moved back here 8months ago.
and now, not a day goes by when I’m now thankful that I don’t live there anymore. even if my job was much better there, and I miss my friends and being able to go to Scotland for the weekend and the beautiful Peak District where I used to live.Posted 8 years agoianvMember
The area round Font Romeau in the pyranees has plenty of stuff and is only 1 1/2hours from the beach and 1hour from andorra.
Southern alps, briancon downward is lovely (but maybe not cheap)
The Drome is probs quite cheap and has loads of excellent biking, likewise the massif centralePosted 8 years ago
We’re in Crémieu, between Lyon and Chambéry. It’s such a wonderful area. fantastic mountain biking on our doorstep. same for road biking as we’re in the Buget. We have a much better stardard of living here than we could dream of in the Uk even if my salary is not what it used to be. but who cares when you’ve got acres of land with your farmhouse and trails worthy of a trail centre literally on my doorstep.Posted 8 years ago
Yes I couldn’t resit, mind you you have to admit that sleasy jet flyers aren’t exactly giving brit a good name, all my mates from here do not believe me when I said brits are usually nice people.
As for the scums that populate cannes they are the topgear car likes, you know big SUV no respect for anyone else etc etcPosted 8 years ago
‘scuse me mes amis francaises, but we do have the little matter of zangolin’s original quesiton….
But I do agree about Cannes – grotty. Never flown to Nice (I’ve only ever driven – from Manchester). I might visit when I’m in the Drome in July. Depends on how well I and the Géant de Provence get on….
