Last week I was in Moab, Utah for two days and I decided to check out some of the legendary trails they have on offer. As I was on my own and I don’t have any experience of riding around Moab I decided to go on a half day guided ride with Rim Tours. Although I don’t know the Moab are I am an experienced rider and I was keen to experience the harder trails on offer, this meant booking and advanced level tour. As it is fairly uncommon for advanced riders to hire guides I was the only client. Despite making the tour more expensive it meant that I had my guide Dave all to myself and we were able to really push my riding.

Le Grand Massif is directly 50 km south of Geneva, situated above the main route towards Chamonix and the Mont Blanc Tunnel. It is comprised of 5 alpine resorts; Les Carroz, Flaine, Morillon, Samoens and Sixt-fer-cheval. The mountain biking terrain offers suitability for a wide range of disciplines and difficulty. This area is attractive as increasing lift access during the peak summer months makes it more accessible, offering rough and ready trails free of other riders unlike other alpine resorts.
