Finale Ligure Riders Weeks run on a program devised by us and our uplift partners. You'll be with your fellow riders all week in the van and villa, riding the same trails and with the same guides. We work extremely hard to make sure everyone coming on these holidays has an unforgettable and positive experience.

 

Fitness wise, you need to be strong enough to handle the long descents, not only in your arms and hands, but in your legs as well. Runs can last around 12 - 15 minutes for an EWS athlete gunning for the podium. We'll be stopping to take breaks but the trail will keep on coming! Add into this the amount of challenging features and you can see that a good level of fitness is required. Though we do not pedal up unless we have to get to certain areas the van cannot get to, it's the descents and their length that wear you down.

The trails can not simply be graded as green, blue, red or black

There are very few trails here we'd consider easy. They can't be graded simply into green, blue, red or black, as so many will have sections that are very tricky. Tracks like Base Trail we'd consider to be a good sighting run. If this looks like it's too much for you, then you should put Finale Ligure on the to do when you've had more practice list!

 

Some trails are nothing but rock and rock garden, relentlessly technical and demanding on the bike and body. So, if this looks straightforward for you, then we can certainly keep you occupied for the week. Tracks like Madonna Della Guardia or Rebel Yell are where you would end up, we'd consider these some of the most demanding here. To grade them you'd be on a double black anywhere else.

On July 12th France announced the latest measures to help combat a fourth wave of Covid-19, in an attempt to keep the country open and not risk a surge of the delta variant, such as the UK has seen. These measures are designed to avoid a fourth lockdown, and essentially make life normal for some, and very abnormal for others.

If you're vaccinated, travelling to Europe during the summer and Autumn months looks to be quite straight forward. At the time of writing the governments of Europe have come to the understanding that if you have been jabbed, you can travel. Restrictions remain in place for countries listed as red, with most of Europe adopting a form of traffic light system.

Double vaccinated? 2 weeks since your second jab? Want to take your bike on a holiday? If you’re in England, from July 19th Europe’s best bike parks are back at your fingertips, and we hope very soon for Wales and Scotland too, from Northern Ireland the date is the 25th July.

Summer is back, and we are STOKED! If you’re not double jabbed, and won’t be anytime soon, keep scrolling, we’re going to lay out what happens from July 19th, then what we think will happen next.

Summer is here. The lifts in and around Morzine are turning and the trails are open. We would normally be welcoming our first clients for the summer season this Saturday, unfortunately things did not work out. We’re here, but you guys aren’t and to be honest it sucks as much for us as it does for you.
