- Recommend me a bike holiday for next summer….
Ok, so over the last few years we’ve done:-
Megavalanche / Alp d’Huez & Les Deux Alpes
Looking for either somewhere different or something with an event thrown in. Passportes du Soleil is one thought, but heard varying reports.
Any other thoughts or company recommendations?Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Passportes du Soleil is a grand day out in the mountains and makes a decent start to a week in the area – given what else you’ve done (esp Mega) I would hesitate to recommend it as its very lame in comparison.
Trail Adiiction Destination X – guided week on natural trails – you’ll see very few other mtbs
Tour Mont Blanc
Have a look for a European enduro event and base yourself around that. There is a casual “very mini” Mega in Lenzerheide in August. Riding around there is pretty good with some big days out possible if you don’t mind some hike a bike and getting train / bus back if needed.
If you don’t mind an xc style event why not do someof Cristalp, there are shorter versions of the main event. Then do Chamonix/Verbeir.Posted 4 years agoianvMember
Andorra is ace, there is a Maxi Avalanche early in the season and a second one in September if you want an event. However, early or late means that the top lift is only open on weekends.
A park trip taking in Granvalira, Valnord and La Molina is easy doable without paying a holiday company.Posted 4 years agomtbtomoMember
Having done Megavalanche doesn’t mean I was very fast or competent! Looking for trails on trail bikes (140 -160mm), possibly bike park but not full on DH.
Went with Trail Addiction at Les Arcs – very good – thanks for reminding me of their ‘Destination X’ option!
I think one of the group will be more interested in uplifts than too much pedalling uphill.Posted 4 years ago
