Two weeks in the French Alps feels like a dream. I came for the bike parks but couldn’t resist putting my road bike in the car too, for the 10 hour drive through France.
When I started planning routes I didn’t even think about the fact I’m staying in a valley and the only way to get anywhere, is to climb. But nothing beats waking up and chucking on your bike kit to ride riding through the most beautiful villages, up steep cols with unbelievable rock formations, finding waterfalls for a picnic and pedalling home through the sunset.
