10fifty Mountain Bike Holidays are special, they are for real mountain bikers who want the best mountain bike trails in Europe or the USA. We only ever have small groups on holiday and we do not take beginners on our mountain bike rides. (see non-riders holidays for those who might be accompanied by less experienced mountain bikers) Small groups means more riding and better riding; if you only get a week or two on a mountain bike holiday, why do you want to compromise? Our holidays are about the mountain biking, we show you the very best trails that you and your mountain bike could ever wish for!
Our main mountain bike holiday location is of course Chamonix in the French Alps. Chamonix allows us to show mountain bikers miles of sweet singletrack set in beautiful alpine scenery. Our Chamonix mountain bike holidays provide the choice between relaxing at the end of the day in our comfortable French chalet or taking a tour around the Mont Blanc Massive staying in a variety of accomodation.

Our most popular mountain bike holiday, probably because it provides the best combination of amazing mountain biking, a relaxing place to stay. breath-taking scenery, 10fifty's renown attention to detail, and did we mention that amazing mountain biking?
For those who want to go the distance, and mountain bike around western Europe's highest mountain we show you some fantastic mountain biking trails on the way. Each day you will do epic mountain biking which will take your breath away both up and downhill. At the same time your kit will be transported to the next night's accomodation, allowing you to concentrate on enjoying your holiday and your mountain biking. A seven day holiday with five days riding, it will start and finish in Chamonix, but you will stay in both Switzerland and Italy as well.
Although we are mountain bikers through and through we too have been seduced by the raw speed and purity of road biking. We had requests from a few of our regular visitors who ride both mountain bikes and road bikes. They said if you can do a Tour du Mont Blanc holiday on mountain bikes then you must be able to do it on road bikes!
It is similar to the off-road Tour Du Mont Blanc in that it is supported, however its a beast of a ride on black-top! If you are looking for a road bike challenge then this holiday for you.
We appreciate that taking a week or two away to mountain bike can be difficult if your significant other has nowhere to go or nothing to do. We don't want to be the cause of strife so we allow non-riders to accompany riders, but pay a lower price because they are not benefiting from our mountain bike guiding. There is plenty for non-riders to do in Chamonix, unlike some of the other alpine resorts, so direct them to our non-riders pages and they then won't be able to give you a reason for you both not to come away on a 10fifty holiday!
Alternatively why not join us on what started out as our own pre and post season holidays, a Road Trip Holiday to the USA, mountain biking in Colorado, Utah and beyond. These trips are very limited in the number of participants and you can expect to be mountain biking the classic trails in nplaces like Moab, Fruita, Durango and gems you don't know. This holiday is one for mountain biker who don't mind a good combination of miles in the saddle and miles on the road. We take the stress out the trip by organising everything allowing you to make the most of a mountain bike holiday to remember.
