So, I had a week off at the end of July and headed off to Morzine in France on my first trip to ride the mountains, mainly XC riding (with lift uplifts here and there) and a morning of Downhill. There’s a full slideshow below of photographic highlights most of which are self explanatory. I took my Boardman HT Pro (no sniggering please) and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it handled some seriously rough trails.
The other riders on the trip were primarily interested in downhill riding and persuaded me to take a couple of easy (Green) runs on their Ebay special known as “The Beast”. After riding the hardtail it was like riding a fast heavy sofa over some big bumps. I was impressed but decided to quit whilst still intact.
A big thanks to Ioannis, Jorgos, John, Anne, Chris and Big Nige for a fun few days away. I look forward to another trip next summer!
