Have you started planning your summer holiday yet? Looking for a guided week in one of the best areas of the French Alps? Read on.
The Inside Line MTB, run by ex-downhiller and friend of Ride.io Emily Horridge, offers guided chalet holidays based in the heart of Les Arcs, the home of natural singletrack.
Les Arcs has a bikepark which is great for smashing some downhill laps on the big bike, but the natural trails are much more of an enduro style. Lasting anything from 5 minutes to half an hour, you can ride steep loamy tracks, technical rocky numbers, and everything in between. It’s hard to believe that there are over 50 different natural singletrack trails dotted all over Les Arcs and the ajoining resort of La Plagne, but that is one of the best things about the area – the sheer density of quality trails.
The Inside Line MTB is based out of a fantastic chalet in Peisey – the heart of Les Arcs. With a massive garage, spacious bedrooms and living area, it’s ideal for a perfect week of biking. It’s easy to get the absolute maximum from every day of your holiday, rolling straight from the door to the nearest lift within seconds, and finishing the day with a trail which ends in the garden. Emily’s expansive knowledge of the area means that you may never ride the same trail twice – if you wanted. And if you’ve been to Les Arcs before, we’re pretty certain she can show you something you’ve not yet ridden!
Take a holiday with these guys, and literally all you need to worry about is riding your bike. Get up in the morning, and sit down to a filling breakfast. Pick up your packed lunch, and head out under a big blue sky for another great day of amazing trails. When you get home at the end of the day, grab a slice of cake and a cuppa and relax. Later on, you’ll be served a tasty and filling dinner along with wine and beer, replenishing those energy reserves ready to do it all again the next day.
