    Looks really good, but whats the difference of AM. We don't really have mountains in somerset and most of my riding if on the quantock trails and have done a few races in plymouth (soggy bottom).

    That does look really good - I'm thinking of planning a riding trip for sometime later in the year/next year and am quite attracted to going somewhere a bit different form the usual alps destinations such as the alps etc...

    I wouldn't even worry about it - stupid marketing term to sell us more bikes. For what is worth though, id suggest that a bike that falls into the AM (All Mountain) genre will generally have 140-150mm front and rear suspension.

    I expect someone to come along and tell me I'm wrong and that I have just described some sub niche of AM or something?!?!? :roll: Just ride what bike you want, when you want and whee you want. Rant over :)

    I've quite fancied going there for some bike riding.

    I believe it's a lot cheaper than it used to be :D

    On the web site says they only do trips in August so should be good for the school holidays

    No prob.

    Taken from website
    Prices depend on date and route combinations, size of group etc.

    Would definitly be up for doing this.

    This sounds about right for what me.

    I was looking at where to go next year and Les Gets/Morzine is probably a bit beyond my ability/the bike.

    I was looking at this. But I'd need to get a group of four or five people to come with.

    Let me know details, once you know if its happening etc. I wont be available at the start of August due to SITS :) but anytime after that would be fine for me.

    I've been wanting to go to Iceland for a while. Hadn't actually considered taking the bike, but it sounds like a great idea. I would definately be interested in tagging along so please keep me informed.
