First time on the bike!!
So, I have been here a little over a week now and the curiosity of using a Mountain Bike to fly down an actual Mountain sure got the better of me.
My partner in crime and I headed in town first thing to hire two all singing all dancing MTBs with full protective get up.
We hit the first gondola at Super Morzine and my palms start to feel sweaty, I haven’t got a clue what I have gotten myself in for.
I check my Mobile data is on, quickly Google ‘How to Downhill Mountain Bike’ while I still have a few minutes to spare.
Took a few quick tips. Elbows up? Sure! Get into a corner? Got it!
We head towards our first trail, which happens to be a Blue trail down to top of Super M.
Comparing it to and winter piste thinking yeh, this should be ok,
Helmet strapped, head down, arse up, LET’S GO!
I can feel the sweat dripping down the inside of my helmet.
Combo of the heat blasting out of the sun and the fear from throwing myself down this great big hill on two wheels.
(Just to make this crystal clear, I DO NOT ADVISE ANYBODY TO TRY TO DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKE WITHOUT A LESSON OR GUIDE FIRST TIME OF DOING IT)
I plan to get up to speed next Summer with all things MTB, this was just a taster session for me.
To see if it gave me the appetite for more.
It supasssed all expectiations I had for MTB, It’s given me a burning desire to do it over and over again!
It is an exhilarating sport which sure gets the blood pumping
The start of the day I wasn’t bothered about whether I went up or not,
Now I can’t wait to get my first bike and to fully immerse myself into the world of MTB!
By the end of the day we felt like we had achieved quite a lot,
We had hit some good speed, some tricky trails, NO BROKEN BONES, few aches and pains but most of all,
Morzine really is the Mecca in the world of MTB.
The area you can cover is VAST. Such is the amount of different trails to accommodate experienced Pro rides and Noobs like me.
We hit the hill feeling like Laurel and Hardy and came off feeling like Maverick and Goose!
“Gonna take a RIDEEE INTOO THE DANGER ZONE”
We can resume our love affair next year as this Summer is soon coming to a close,
I will be attacking the MTB next year but lets not dwell on what’s been and gone,
WINTER WILL SOON BE HERE!
The MTBs and green hills will be replaced by skiers and snowboarders hitting white crystalized peaks and freshly groomed pistes for us to entertain ourselves on!
