Snow in the Lake District of England got me ready for winter in France, but then...
Me, and the Beaufort Bitches enjoyed a great weekend up in the lakes with the our brothers up there. It really is like a mini alps up there. Some mega tech trails and some great fast flow accompanied with top notch banter and a poorly executed, but highly amusing Kendal Mountain Film Festival Bike Night 2016.

Local conditions in the Haute Savoie and neighbouring Valais have been top notch below 1800 metres. This means there is still a good few options, and with winter driving work not having kicked in to full time, lots of time to ride, keep fit and wait for the impending arrival of winter. Lorne of the ski blogging world is still riding even. A recent visit to Dorenaz staying below the snow line resulted in easy access to a steep technical trail followed by a 1000 metre flow-tastic descent all the way down to the valley floor. Skiers are out their searching. Winter is long once it arrives properly. I'm going to keep biking for now and not telling lie's on social media about great powder snow. In Valais the good trails are easy to link together and this guarantee's a rewarding, low stress day in the outdoors. TIP TOP! MEGA BON!
