Many thanks for leading us on a fantastic ride today. I know it will be the highlight of Alex’s holiday to have ridden in such experienced company and in such fantastic surroundings. Truly breathtaking... In more ways than one :)

Very best of luck for the race this weekend, and we’ll see you again next Wednesday.

Nigel was an excellent guide and was very encouraging to the weaker rider (me) and rode with me to give me the motivation to achieve the tough climbs. He also gave us invaluable tips particularly on the technical parts of the route. The weather turned so Nigel changed his route to avoid some paths that were made worse by the volume of water but despite getting soaked Adam and I had a fantastic time and learned a lot from Nigel

Hi Nigel

Many thanks for the fabulous taster of VTTing in the Val D’Herens

It was very much appreciated & certainly came as a most welcome & unexpected surprise as we’d only brought our bikes really in the hope that we might get out on them.

As a frequent visitor to Les Collons I was delighted to meet with Nigel over the weekend. We were very keen on exploring the Val Dixence area and were absolutely delighted to be given a guided tour by Nigel.
It is difficult to follow routes in the area, however going out on a guided tour was amazing, we stopped in various locations looking at key landmarks which were interesting and informative but most importantly keeping us on safe but exciting trails.

I had the opportunity to conduct a training ride with Nigel
On this occasion we were supported to Thyon and did a round of 45km in over 3 hours.
Thank you for your professionalism, including your care, your nutrition advice and conduct. Puncture which I suffered was repaired on the spot very quickly.
Big thank you and I would not fail to give your references in the world of sport.

First and foremost, I took great please in doing this tour!
I enjoyed the variety of the route (forests, roads, climbs, descents, technical sections) through the valley ...I discovered otherwise.
Beginner mountain bike I appreciated the advice to progress (loosening uphill, braking, speed, technical descents, power etc..)
The duration and timing were perfect.
It feels safe: no unnecessary risk taking, no spirit of competition, but the goal to give the maximum.
last but not least, friendly discussions to complement the course.
Coming every summer at this time, I hope to make such trips again.
I wanted to thank you again for this initiative and the tourist office of Thyon.
Sports greetings

We are very pleased that Nigel proposed this summer guided mountain bike tours in the region, because this was lacking in our weekly program.

We offered multiple hosts these discovery trips who thanks to the expect advice from Nigel, learnt different ways to approach our mountain trails, how to negotiate the downhill and how to maintain the energy for such excursions.

All participants were pleased with the professionalism of Nigel and his knowledge of the area, they hope to use his services next time.

“When I arrived in Marrakech, I had no idea what to expect of a training camp in a country I did not know. But I completely trusted Nigel. And I was right: he organized everything perfectly: a charming hotel in a quiet, relaxing environment, airport transfer, breakfast waiting at the hotel after early arrival by plane, different rides adapted to the small group, taking care of the group’s needs , adapting the program to weather and riders’ conditions, etc. And he joined the “work” (training) with a recreational part: fun day on mountain bikes, guided city bike tour to experience traffic in Marrakech, etc. A truly unforgettable training camp and holiday – I’ll be back in 2015!”
