Book of the month: Alps Mountain BikingMonday, 2 May 2016
As spring streams in through our office bay window and we peak over our screens at the available dates in the staff holiday calendar, we think it’s time to enjoy the outdoor potential the warmer months have to offer.
To put the spring in your step, this month we’ve selected four routes from our Book of the Month, Alps Mountain Biking, and made them available to download as a PDF. The Alps are the highest and most extensive mountain range in Europe, stretching approximately 750 miles across eight Alpine countries. Alps Mountain Biking offers routes in the western Alps that are suitable for all riding abilities, from the bold biker to the practising pedaller.
Click on the PDF icon to download route descriptions and maps for the following rides: Super Sauze (Sauze d’Oulx), Les Frettes Ridge (Chamonix), Balcony Trail (Saint-Luc), Flaine to Samoëns (Samoëns and the Grand Massif).
