Mountain Biking and French Alps road cycling breaks
Whatever your mountain biking/road cycling passion Nikki and Hugh can help ensure that you get the most from your holiday at their luxury mountain B&B.
Whether you prefer your mountain bike action to be cross country, downhill, all mountain/enduro, freeride or trail riding then the French Alps provide some of the best terrain and backdrops in the world. The area around Fontaine, Naves is also the perfect setting for the increasingly popular activity of mountain bike orienteering – combining the skills of map navigation and mountain biking.
After five years of lovingly restoring a rundown Savoyard barn into luxury mountain accommodation Hugh is enjoying having the time to get back into the saddle and back into mountain training. His passion for cross country (XC) mountain biking and knowledge of all aspects of mountain biking and the local area puts him in a unique position to advise guests on routes, circuits, multi day circuits and local trails.
