1st bivi of 2015 – Val Ferret, Italy.
Great ride up, nowhere in the trees less than waist deep in snow (and no shovel) so retreated to a little abandoned village and took shelter under an overhanging roof.

Last night I, against my better judgement, went for a nice little night ride.

Here’s a little movie I threw together (still getting to grips with some new editing software) of the Italy trip from last week (or was it the week before?).

I jumped on the train this morning up and over to Vallorcine.
On the ride back I played around with the Intervalometer as well as discovering some great new technical singletrack!

This morning I was up at 6 in order to head out for an early morning ride.

Round two of yesterday’s riding schedule saw us popping up the Val Ferret for a little scouting mission to give Geoff a look at the Col de Ferret which is going to be a tricky little bugger of a section of his winter TMB attempt.

Yesterday me and Geoff popped through the tunnel to Italy to sample the local trails.

A few days ago I happened to be going for lunch in Vallorcine which is a place I’ve wanted to take the fatbike to ever since I saw the lovely groomed snowshoe trails last winter.

We went for a little night ride on the Petit Balcon Sud a few nights ago.
Conditions were challenging to say the least but it was a great laugh (if a little dangerous).

The Fatbike Chamonix facebook group has been going and growing for a few weeks now and so me and Geoff decided to make a little movie of a ride we did during the first of 5 days of very heavy snow (about 1m fell in total).
