No need to tell you how empty the peaceful mountains of French-speaking Switzerland seem to us without you and that we are gnawing our brakes while waiting for this ugly virus to finally let us see a return to normal.
Exoride is on standby during the health crisis that we are all going through, and it is only natural that our mountainbike guiding activities are suspended, both in Valais and in our different destinations.

If you come with your own bike, thank you to have it completely revised in a shop and change the wear parts before your departure (tires, brake pads, ...)
