Riding in bicycle parks is not new for cyclists. But riding in ones that have majestic views is.
 
That’s what our team of eight experienced cyclists got to enjoy when we went on a 14-day biking tour of the French and Swiss Alps from Aug 1 to 15.
 
We spent seven magnificent days at BikePark Peisey-Vallandry at the French side of the Alps. It was sunny throughout and our guides took us through many different technical trails which offered picture postcard scenery.
 
From there, our group moved over to Les Crosets, Bike Park Champery, at the Swiss side of the Alps for the next seven days. In terms of scenery, this side offered even more stunning views but was much colder, with temperatures hitting 8 deg C when it rained.
