Megavalanche 2010 with Ride Oisans


With the local authority stating that there will be no camping in Alpe d’Huez this year we have teamed up with the Hotel Vallee Blanche in Alpe d’Huez to offer flexible stay accommodation on either a bed and breakfast or half board basis from just £33.30 PPPN. Please visit our Megavalanche page for more information.

Mountain of Hell

The Mountain of Hell (the week after the Mega) is the alternative and tougher option for those that have done the Megavalanche . For this event we have teamed up with the Hotel La Meije in Les Deux Alpes who will be offering flexible stay on a bed and breakfast basis from just 30 Euros PPPN. Indeed we like the Hotel La Meije so much we have teamed up with them to provide summer mountain biking accommodation from Mid June – end of August

Can’t do Mega or Mountain of Hell ?

Our gravity fuelled singletrack weeks in Bourg d’Oisans run all summer. For those that don’t know Bourg d’Oisans it is in between Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes so is the ideal base to explore the area. A weeks stay is £300 GBP per person and includes bed, breakfast, packed lunch, bike storage and workshop, uplifts and free accompanied rides. We cover both Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes in your local stay and if you are really nice to us we may also show you the 84 switchbacks of Oulles. (We now only have the 1st and 2nd weeks of August with availability.)

What kind of bike do I need ?

We recommend a 5-6 inch travel bike – light enough for the inevitable climbs but strong and slack enough for the 1000 m vertical descents.

What kind of rider should I be ?

Experienced ! There are loads of tight steep switchback and rocky descents over cliff hugging singletrack. Think red and black rated routes !

We hope to see you in 2010

Phil and Helen
