Once upon a time in the Southern Balkans

Skopje. The future looks good. For biking at least.
A week riding the trails of North Macedonia and Albania. And eating and drinking and chatting and meeting folk and seeing things. The more interesting bit.

Smells like Digne spirit* 

I'm not a good enough writer to describe just how much fun we were having at this point. Many. Many funs.

I am just going outside and may be some time // La Grave

Mountain Bike riding in La Grave. Turns out it's just as unique and addictive in summer as winter

Dorenaz

Where is this going? Well, Wayne's going down and north, I've no idea where the blog's headed.

Tour des Combins

Dave learning just how much fun carrying a bike up hill can be at 2800m
Two days of biking in mountains, on mountains, between mountains and ignoring mountains. And a hut. 130km round, 5000m up and 5900m down if you want to try it yourself.

Continuous Professional Development

The Tarentaise. Does a good line in ridge trails, thanks to the inside line for showing us them.
Exploring. What else are days off bike guiding for? In this episode; a trip to Beaufortain for VTT enduro uplift fun.
