Giving Dave a singletrack lesson

Dave, Karl and I went mountain biking in the Alps. It rocked. Here are some photos.


  • Big hills.
  • Sore fingers.
  • Everything’s expensive.
  • When there’s a storm it really goes for it – take a jacket!
  • Don’t need full suspension (although everyone has it, except me).
  • Nobody rides up the hills (except me).
  • The best trails are unmarked. Spot them from the lifts, then find ‘em.
  • French girls are lovely.
  • The French are lovely.
  • Riding singletrack is still brilliant.


  1. You’re back! Looks fun.

  2. Looks Fantastic Mark – top tips too. Thinking about heading to the Alps next year – be good to get the lowdown over a beer

  3. Hey Richard!

    A beer sounds like an excellent idea. I’ve a feeling a bunch of the ex-IO crowd will meet again sometime soon – will keep you posted.
