Mountain bike & vacation - the perfect combo! - Part I
Part 1 - The time is now! (Or. why didn‘t we do it long time ago?)
Ever wondered how 2 great things can make one perfect choice? Here‘s how:
If you are like me and you like riding mountain bikes more then anything else (well. maybe second to that other thing, yea, that thing, but that one only), and I bet you‘d take a vacation any chance you can get, I say, match them up for a perfect combo.
During the last 4-5 years, bike parks have become a huge attraction for mountain bikers of all levels in growing numbers of spots around the world.
Ski resorts operators have realized that there is much more to be done then just open their sites during the winter, when it is all white. Once the summer melts the snow, it uncovers the main feature that was there for ages - the huge mountains. It‘s a simple formula: mountain (they‘re there already) + chairlifts network infrastructure (also exist) = heaps of potential fun. All it takes is minor adjustments to accommodate to bikes and Viola!
As mountain bikes continue to evolve, technology features a whole lot of new capabilities which enable to ride tougher terrain with much greater ease and also more aggressive riding style. Stuff like high end damping suspensions with longer travel + superior braking systems all installed onto state-of-the art hi-tech frames that are constructed of metal composites that create much stronger yet lighter rigs then ever before.
And talk about the fun factor; how about spend a week (or more) in Morzine mountain biking resort specially designed for the biking activity? A portrayal location that looks as if taken from a magical tale with clearest clean fresh air, mountains all over just waiting for you to explore with countless trails, single-tracks, and down-hill runs, all perfectly maintained.
