E-Fat Bike

A mountain bike with fat tyres

FatBike MountainBikes come from Alaska; although the first design was created by the French cyclist Jean Naud in 1980. It’s truly an all-rounder: weather or tracks, the conditions do not matter. The FatBike stands out during winter when tracks are covered by a light snow powder: no one is better than it for this! As you will see, there are not many flat trails around the valley of Chamonix and I assure you, you will be happy riding an E-Bike!

Chamonix was a sleepy Savoyard village nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc until 1741 when William Windham and Richard Pococke arrived in search of adventure. The two young British aristocrats clambered up the local glacier, explored the nearby mountains and subsequently penned such a romantic picture of the region in their journals that they fired the imagination of their fellow countrymen. For the next century and more—Anglo-French wars permitting—Chamonix became an essential stop for English travelers making the Grand Tour of Europe. Alpine tourism had arrived and Chamonix became its capital.
