Mont Blanc Enduro, Trans Alp Epic, & Lake to Lake
New for 2020, we are excited to announce that Endless Trails MTB will be merging with Ben Jones MTB, and taking over the running of several Alpine adventure trips; the Mont Blanc Enduro and the Trans Alp Epic in France, and the invite-only Lake Garda to Lake Como trip in Italy!
These well-established and hugely popular trips were planned and created by Ben and have been enjoyed by hundreds of guests since 2013. Julia has been lucky enough to be involved in many years of guiding the trips, and even some of the original trip recce-ing, and is thrilled to be able to continue offering these trips to guests as Ben hangs up his guiding pack to focus on his work as co-owner of Deviate Cycles. (We hope he’ll make a guest guiding appearance on a few of next years trips!)
These mountain bike holidays combine fantastic trails with a sense of journey and adventure, and are aimed squarely at riders who enjoy the descending, but are not scared of some pedalling to get to that extra special bit of single-track. Unique in the idea of connecting up kilometres of incredible riding into a point to point or circular route, we stay in different hotels each night and therefore experience the excitement of a new vista several times a day as we cross watersheds. Using the huge network of trails originally created by ancient farming practices, and coupled with the modern lift infrastructure of Alpine ski resorts, we have the ability to access pristine natural trails and enjoy a truly epic journey through the giant playground of the Alps. Ultimately, it’s all about having an amazing adventure on your bike AND riding some of the world’s best single-track!
Using an element of van/lift access simply means we don’t have to pedal up thousands of metres everyday and therefore we can enjoy more descending, cover more ground and ride an “all-mountain” bike... this isn’t cross country riding, and it’s certainly not downhill riding – but it’s a true all-mountain backcountry mountain bike adventure.
