Another fabulous winter is coming to an end, but no need to be sad as we have an amazing summer just around the corner. Here are a few highlights to look forward to:
Yes, it's that time of year again when our attention switches to the summer and MTB in particular. The Pass'Portes du Soleil is an ever-popular event, which for 2017 runs on June 23rd, 24th and 25th.
The Aiglon makes an ideal base for the event - we have secure storage in our underground car park, which features keycode access on all doors and anchor points to lock your bikes to. We also have a washing station outside, and workshop facilities in the garage (workstands and tools).
Our drying room is available for all our guests to use in case of wet conditions - but hopefully you won't need them!
The annual Pass'portes du Soleil is taking place on June 24, 25 and 26th 2016. Always a popular event, there's plenty to see and do on those days.
This year, the entry fee is 50 euro, which includes:
Always wondered what it would be like to ride a stage of the Tour de France? Or are you looking for a new challenge?

As the old saying goes; "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." and when it comes to mountain biking this could not be closer to the truth. With so many potential eventualities awaiting riders on the mountain, it pays to prepare for every outcome, to ensure a safe and enjoyable ride.
Our last day.
Obviously starting with a brutal climb. The scenery over this trip was stunning. We had seen amazing glaciers, areas which looked like the Rockies and part of this climb was like something out of Jurassic park.
After a good sleep and filling ourselves with a great breakfast we set off early for Refuge Elena and then onto Col de Ferret. Again there was a lot of climbing ahead of us that took most of the morning. It was all pretty much rideable and absolutely stunning.
