    E-MTBiking guided tour: Mont Joly

    Each guided tour is different. Here is an E-Mountain Biking example.

    I have specifically created this E-Mountain biking tour as a preparation for the Tour du Mont Blanc. It re-creates some of the difficulties you can expect during 4-5 days. Consider mountain biking for 5 hours plus and extra two hours recharging your battery during lunch.

    This mountain biking quotation system is indicative. Hire me as a mountain biking guide or evolve at your own risk. Please, do not overestimate your capacities. Mountain can be a hostile environment and falls being significant with serious consequences. Download the MTBiking notation guide for a better understanding.
