Stick this on the big screen, dial it up to LOUD and enjoy the ride. David Cachon is back with yet more mind blowing technical, fun riding in some of the world’s most beautiful places. Here’s the man himself to tell you all about this latest adventure into the unknown trails of the Pyrenees…
We have entered into an adventure that will take us to the doors of the Pyrenees, specifically we will stay at the feet, trying to discover the most accessible and spectacular areas of the Catalonian Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees. Areas of great scenic richness, with very acceptable slopes and where we will find routes and paths adapted to all levels and publics. We were lucky to have the help of two exceptional guides such as Silvia Rovira (former professional mountain biker) and Jaume Vila (expert mountain guide).
