AVBS MTB Holidays 2020

We are super stoked to announce that the Afan Valley Bike Shed is teaming up with Chamonix MTB to offer some incredible mountain bike trips this summer! So, if you’re stuck for holiday ideas, have no one to go with or you just want someone else to deal with all the faff, no problem because that’s what we’re here for! We have two jam-packed riding packages for you to choose from…

Tour du Mont Blanc (7-days)


When: July 18th – 25th, 2020 (7-nights)
Where: Chamonix, France
Price: £1,250 per person

This is a tour of a lifetime, one that’ll ring out in your mind for years to come. Starting in Chamonix, we’ll set off for 6-days of epic high-alpine riding while covering anywhere from 20km to 40km each day. However, a minibus will be available to take the sting out of the climbs but don’t worry, they’ll still be plenty of pedalling! We’ll be stopping overnight on the Swiss/Italian border and taking in the grandeur of the Grand St. Bernard pass. By the end of the trip, you’ll have climbed around 4,000m and descended around 24,000m, making this one epic trip!

The price includes accomodation for 7-nights with breakfast, lunch and dinner. You’ll receive expert professional guiding for 6-days of the tour, and guaranteed great riding, amazing food and drink!

Please note, the Tour du Mont Blanc is not for beginner riders. This tour requires a reasonable level of fitness and must be of an intermediate or above in skill level on the bike.

Three-In-Three (3-days)



When: Contact to book
Where: Chamonix, France
Price: £250 per person

Fancy getting the most out of a short trip? The Three-in-Three mountain bike tour takes you through the picturesque alpine landscapes of the Swiss Valais region (Verbier), Aosta Valley (Pila), Chamonix. That’s France, Italy and Switzerland by bike in just three days with an expert guide.

The price includes accomodation for 3-nights with breakfast and guiding for a max. group size of 8 riders.

What’s not included

  • Your travel to/from Geneva Airport.
  • Airport Transfers are not included in the price but can be hired at €150 per private bus (each way).

For both of these tours, a good, competent level of riding skill and fitness is needed, as the descents can be long and technical and there will always be some peddling involved.

Don’t forget, we also offer EVOC Bike Bag hire at the Afan Valley Bike Shed, which is just one more thing that you don’t need to worry about! For more information about our summer MTB holiday packages, feel free to pop into the shop, drop us an email or give us a call!
