Freeride Alpencross Western Alps – from 3000 metres above sea level to the sea

Who doesn’t dream of riding to the sea and even into it by freeride bike?! Ridealpinetrails will make your dream come true. We’ll start on the trail where Hannibal once went, and on the second day, climb breathtaking high mountain landscapes in the Parc Natural du Queyras, which you’ll definitively fall in love with. With our mountain bikes on the back, we’ll climb the highest spot of the whole tour, which is located 3025 metres above sea level. Picture-perfect high mountain freeriding will alternate with almost endless flowing trails. Secret smuggler trails, which cannot be found on any map, will arouse pioneer feelings in us. The great variety of vegetation and mediterranean climate will make unforgettable days of freeriding on the mountain ridges and in the deep woods of the Alpes-Maritimes. Not until we stand on the last summet of our tour will we be looking at the sea. Uninteruppted anticipation and 1000 metres of trail will sweeten the last minutes on our bikes!

A great biking week will be crowned with a leap into the sea! A new freeride crossing of the Alps that sets standards will be behind you!

Day 1: Susa

Having arrived individually, we’ll meet at our meeting point in Susa at 7.00 pm. During a cozy dinner we discuss the program of the following days.

Days 2-7:

We are purposely not giving away the details of the route of this tour. At the moment, no other guiding company offers this tour, because one has to explore the whole area before beeing able to guide here. We worked really hard to prepare this camp for you. If you are passionate about mountain biking and nature, and have some pioneering spirit, you would simplylove this camp. You will definitively experience tremendous impressions of the unique landscape and trails. You will break new ground in a region you thought you knew already!

  1. Approx. 16,000 metres downhill/ Approx. 4,500 metres uphill

Day 8:

After a nice and cosy breakfast we will be taken back to the starting point by our shuttle car, followed by a well-deserved closing off-session. From here, everyone departs individually.

This offer is subject to changes, as we have not completed our exploring. New tours and opportunities might come up, which we would then integrate in the tour to optimise this trip for you.

One more thing:
 This tour is challenging when it comes to your riding techniques and physical fitness! You ought to have experience with challenging trails and different kinds of soil – this is a prerequisite! Few parts of this tour are exposed and will be signalled by the guide early on. You need good stamina and a certain drive to ride, push and carry your bike about 1,200 metres up in one go. We assume that you control your bike safely and use equipment of high quality.
