    so now that I have to book all holidays around the school holidays for some reason our only family holiday is October.

    any suggestions on where I can go that wont be cold and I can rent a downhill bike and do some good riding.

    I thought canary islands but google returns a lot of road riding and old hardtails…….

    We have a DH shuttle service, but unfortunately no DH rigs for hire.

    I had a fantastic trip to Les Arcs in October, lifts closed, but had uplifts with Coolbus.co.uk, recommend them.

    Well, I say fantastic, but I spent three days with the shits. IF I hadn’t been exhausted, dehydrated and running into the trees every few minutes, it would have been fantastic.

    thanks for the replies guys

    Potdog – just found your website, looks good! I would settle for a trail bike as long as someone takes me to the top of the hill. Will be in touch if we settle on Tenerife!

    Dunk10 – malaga – hadn’t thought of that, good one….

    honourablegeorge – nice, but the kids will insist on a beach I think

    Finale Freeride in Finale Ligure – uplifts, rental, beaches, the lot.

    Finale Ligure you say…… looks great, trying to convince my wife now.

    Do you think she will twig that I am blatantly organising our family holiday around mountain biking?

    Try Bike Riviera Bike – I rode with one of the owners a couple of weeks back in the UK, very nice people and sounds like a good setup with lot of repeat customers.
