Back in September I mentioned I was looking to arrange an Alps trip in Summer 2019. Now Christmas has passed it’s time to get things arranged.
I’ve currently got Rob and Lou from my Brighton Club on board and Jack and Alex from Bigfoot (edit: and DAN)
Dates will most likely be: Sat 13th July to Sat 20th July 2019. The DH World Cup is in Les Gets the 13th/14th July which should make that first weekend a fairly lively one.
The plan is to stay in a Chalet in Morzine and ride in the surrounding area of the Portes du Soleil. This will include Morzine, Les Gets, Chatel, Champéry, Morgins etc. The area is well covered by a network of lifts so 95% of the riding we’ll be doing will be going down.
I must make it clear that the plan is to predominantly ride in the bike parks and on tracks which are probably best described as DH tracks. We will do some riding on unofficial trails in the area, but these are often steeper and more technical than the official stuff.
That being said, of course anyone is welcome to come. Even if you just want to come and ride your road bike all week. If you’re in any doubt as to what the riding in the area is like just have a chat with me on one of the club rides.
I would like to know a number who want to come and look to get a Chalet sorted at the end of the month.
