/ XC MTB Europe this summer
Hi, I’m going to be in Europe with my mountain bike in August. Can anyone suggest venues with waymarked trails similar to uk trail centres. Pure downhill is not my thing but I’m not averse to some uplift. All suggestions gratefully received. Thanks
Europe is quite a big place, tie it down a bit?
There’s hundreds round here in Switzerland. Most local councils will have set local routes and there’s some longer tours too. Marked similar to footpaths with signs every turning.
Anywhere you would particularly recommend?
Cheers, looks good!
Les Portes du Soleil around Chatel is pretty good. You can get a lift pass and do a huge loop through Switzerland and back to France.
not to be confused with the Chemins du Soleil which are point to point routes across the Alps. Very good but requires a bit more organisation as they are not loops.
Also lots of routes in the Alpes de Haute Provence where the weather is a bit more reliable than in Savoie (although it can be hot in August)
