Mont Blanc Tour

Postby danieljwood » Sat Jan 19, 2013 14:22 pm

Hi

I've been away from mountain biking for a couple of years now for various reasons. I've recently moved to Bristol so I've good access to trails nearby and into Wales too and I'd like to get back into it.

Anyhow, I'm 28, fairly fit and circuit train at a gym a few times a few times a week. I don't think it will take too long to build technical skills back up as far as riding goes.

I'd really like something to work towards and have decided to book a mountain biking holiday around Chamonix, ideally the Mont Blanc route, such as this:

http://www.alpsmountainbike.com/mountai ... _Blanc.php

Questions are:

Which specialised mountain bike holiday company would you recommend and why?

Just how fit do you have to be to keep up with a route / holiday like this?

How often do you stop for a break, i.e. is it just a relentless ride?

Do you think attending spinning classes a couple of times a week during the evenings might help with the fitness levels needed to any reasonable degree?

Any write ups / photo links from anyone who's done one of the holidays anywhere?

Cheers,
