  • "Cycling is not a job"

    The Society (1976)

    It is undoubtedly in this affirmation often hammered during my youth that we must go to find the roots of Exoride.

    En 1980, âgé d'à peine 4 ans, le vélo a été le moteur de mes premières émotions en vélo et mes premiers effleurements du bonheur apporté par l'évasion et la liberté.

    In 1980, just four years old, the bike was the motor of my first emotions on the bike and my first touches of the happiness brought by the escape and the freedom.

    During the summer of 1989, while walking with family on the heights of Lourdes during the holidays, my path crosses a small hut in which we can rent Peugeot mountainbike ... my eyes of kids have twinkled so much at the sight of this true mountain bike, that mom had no choice but to give me a half-hour rental, which turned into a second half-hour, graciously offered by the owner surprised by my agility and my motivation .... the virus was definitely implanted, and all my savings are destined to acquire one of these marvels of technologies.

    Between hotel school, computer training, product manager for a bike brand, downhill and XC competitions, I spend most of my career trying to find a balance between work and pleasure, but, despite the rigor of everyday life and the pressure social, I always refuse to see go out the little voice that I have since my childhood ...

    Injuries and growing disinterest for the competition in favor of long walks on the trails of the Swiss Alps, a trip to Morocco, a new family situation and a deep questioning about my goals and my priorities It is in 2010 that life will finally have makes sure to put me at the foot of the wall with a series of events that will lead me willingly or forcibly to embark on the adventure ... it's decided, riding a bike will be my job.

    Share the passion of mountain biking and travel, take you off the beaten track to meet other people and perhaps even yourself, so that you too can find for a moment at least those dreams of children at home. bike handlebars and escape from everyday life for unforgettable trips to the most beautiful trails on the planet.

    Exoride is nothing more than the addition of the fragments of a life totally dedicated to cycling to make you live a sporting and human experience unique in its kind.

    Finally, with Exoride, today we can proudly affirm ...


    "Cycling is a real job, ours."

    Christian Dassi
    MTB guide & C.E.O.


  • "Exoride is the result of 30 years of practice in mountainbiking and 10 years in the MTB guiding business. We are here to share with you all the emotions that emanate from our sports experiences."


    We are convinced that we have discovered the magic recipe to offer the ideal mix for a true mountain bike adventure and we are here to share it with you.

    What makes the difference with other agencies and mountain bike guides, is that we consider the practice of mountain biking through the trip as sports and human adventures and not banal mountain bike holidays between dolce vita and jacuzzi. At Exoride, we understood through our different expeditions that mountain biking is the ideal tool to quickly get off classic routes and mix emotions, thrills and surpassing oneself.

    Attach your bike on the back of a mule to reach a distant pass, before reaching a remote village and share a typical meal with a family of native people while enjoying incredible trails flanked by wilderness, this is our daily life and the hundreds of riders who share our MTB adventures and raids each year.

    More than just a bike trip, by joining our MTB adventures, you will live a human adventure that will without a doubt put your certainty on others and on yourself.

    Deeply in love with our adopted home Valais, we also want to share our knowledge of the Swiss Alps by making this destination.

    We do not want to be elitist, and we like to see the arrival of new practitioners in the discipline, and we also attach particular care to initiate and support in their progression every mountainbike and e-bike.
