Amongst my riding group the Italian Alps trips have long been spoken in hushed terms; those of us that hadn't been...hadn't really qualified as fully hardcore. Well, I've been back for 3 days and my mind is still replaying every trail in glorious technicolour.

One word...Awesome. Ady and Jo offer the complete package in their mountain biking hol, combining experienced enthusiastic ride guiding (and first aid lol), with a real personal, friendly touch. The hotel accommodation is good, the food, killer proportions and tasty. The views, breathtaking. The riding tailored to your groups skills and experience; weather its whippet XC or full on downhill, or like our group, a combination of the two so everyone was happy. I cannot speak highly enough of the whole Molini set up. I will be returning!

Simon Hartup  - Surrey, UK

Another fantastic week, thanks so much. I didn't think the riding could be better than last year's but it was! Just remember, let the bike roll!

Clare Starkie  - West Yorkshire, UK

Thanks guys for turning a great holiday into an awesome one! Jo and Ady went the extra mile to be helpful and the guiding was truly top class. Thanks guys! The location, and trails are second to none, simply the best weeks riding I have ever had, including the Alps. The six course evening meal hits the spot after a days riding as well. I will DEFINITELY be back!

Rich Stephenson  - Hants, UK

An amazing dream in our winter, 4 days of sun, ride, laughs, and good food too! Thanks to Ady for guiding us, it was just perfect and so nice. Schedule was perfect, everyday a different place, but every where the same fun! What are you waiting for guys?! Go on and ride! An article with pictures on our website: www.destignardscore.com

Max Higel  - Tignes, France

The trails are phenomenal. Downhilling all day for 2 weeks, we only managed to scratch the surface! Jo and Ady carefully tailor each day to combine a healthy rush of adrenaline, skill sessioning, flowing singletrack and scary drop-offs so that you always feel deserving of a beer. The hotel Santo Spirito stocked us up with amazing food, plentiful wine and grappa, lots of clean warm towels and friendly banter. The mountains are beautiful and the locals make you feel at home, no matter how bad your Italian.

Lisa & Dave  - West Midlands, UK

We had a great time. We will spread the word and will definitely be back next year. Riding and scenery were really good of course but I think you can stress the quality and frequency of the uplift and the inclusive nature of the holiday. I am sure we would have been happy to pay more if we had known how much was included. Thanks for everything and see you next year.

Eddie Jenkinson  - West Sussex, UK

Thanks Ady and Jo for a week which proved to be a superb tonic to the system. Leaving behind the abysmal UK weather, we encountered a spell of almost continuously sunny and warm conditions ,and enjoyed biking as many of the trails around Molini as we could fit in.

You choose - technical, rocky and switchbacky to smooth flowing singletrack - they are all there. And whisper it, you get the trails all to yourself! Appreciated greatly all the hard work carried out by "our hosts" to make things happen. Definitely recommended!

George Scott  - Northumberland, UK

Beautiful area, fantastic trails, lovely weather, great hotel, and fabulous food. Uplifts were a doddle as the trailer was so easy to load, also gave me a chance to recover in time for the next descent :) Well worth a visit!

Paul Westgarth  - Durham, UK

The best riding I've ever done in my life. Many thanks to Ady and Jo. Fantastic trails through stunning scenery. The riding with you guys has saved my summer. Flowy trails that helped boost my confidence and sections where the bike just seemed to bound joyfully. I even enjoyed doing those alpine climbs. I'll be recommending you to anyone thinking about a riding holiday in the future.

Dave Hall  - Leeds, UK

The riding here is awesome - fast furious technical singletrack descents through alpine forests, switchbacks, flowing sections along ancient mule trails and skirting mountain ravines. The scenery is amazing, the weather just right and descents last up to an hour. There is something for every mountain biker to enjoy here, Ady and Jo tailor the week to your abilities. And when you're done riding, the hotel will stock you up with food and wine!

If Carlsberg did mountain bike holidays they'd probably send you here. This might be the most fun you can have on a bike, better than the more popular publicised places like Southern Spain and the Alps. The riding back home just won't compare any more.

Tom Maher  - Lancashire, UK

Really excellent holiday. Fantastic, varied riding on quiet, natural trails. Much more interesting than Morzine. First class guiding and food. Best MTB holiday I've been on. Can't wait to go back.

Ed Holloway  - West Yorkshire, UK

Thanks for a top week in glorious Molini. We were really impressed with the riding, such variety and just the right level of technicality. We were really lucky with the weather too, fabulous. Accommodation was great and the food outstanding. Thanks again guys!

Paul Baker  - West Yorkshire, UK

Phenomenal riding in a stunning location. There's just so much fun to be had on a bike here. The guides are really passionate about biking and put a lot of effort into finding and maintaining the trails. I'm already planning the next trip!

Paul Shand  - Scotland

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for a fantastic time we had in the mountains of Molini! The riding was brill the best I have ever done thanks to Jo & Ady we will be coming back see you soon.

Stuart Haven  - Surrey, UK

Molto Bene! Fantastic to experience the stunning Argentina Valley with the Riviera Bike. An exhilarating experience of tight tracks, steep descents in a part of Europe's forgotten landscape. Will be back...hopefully with the Yerba crew. Grazie.

Ben Walker  - France

Just a quick note to say that we really enjoyed our time in Molini and Finale, thanks to you and Jo. I had better get out on those steps over the A3 practising my switchbacks! I believe Dan has bought a new bike already!

Kelly McGibben  - Surrey, UK

The best mountain bike holiday i've been on! The riding is so varied. from super technical switchbacks to fast flowy singletrack with some amazing cobbled descents through the villages. The descents are far longer than the alpine stuff i've done. The guides can't do enough for you, we rode from 9am to 7pm and they were always keen for one more go. The hotel is clean and relaxed with a superb restaurant and the local bar is just across the street. Go now before everyone catches on and they put their prices up! and no i'm not a family member or friend.

Adrian Wheeler  - Isle of Wight

Just a quick note to thank you all for a fantastic week. The riding, hospitality and the area were absolutely brilliant, and we couldn't have hoped for any better. This was our first time riding in the Alps and you certainly didn't disappoint.

Tony Le-Moignan  - Co Durham

What can I say but thanks for a great holiday, it was the BEST! The riding was great, I have never had such a great laugh from beginning to end. You were all very nice to me also, thanks for making me feel welcome, I had not met any of you before but I really did feel that I had known you all for years. You really do have a fantastic holiday/mountain bike centre there and I can see it just growing over the next few years.

Martin Cox  - Portsmouth, UK

Definitely the best free-riding holiday I have ever been on! Long technical descents, superb scenery and our hosts, Jo and Ady made our stay a real pleasure with their knowledge of the trails and rapid uplifts. I've Riviera Biked in March, May and September this year already. With the brilliant weather and fantastic food, I will be back next year!

Rick Killner  - Surrey, UK

Top location with masses of super Trails only made possible by Rivierabike's Local Trail Knowledge!! Trails are totally unique having a little bit of history behind them! If you want to ride your bike, eat nice food and experience some Italian culture then get yourself here!

Oli Bonfield-Jones  - Morzine, France

What a week! This is the most enjoyable riding i have done in Europe, better than Spain's Sierra Navada, France's Morzine, and the Welsh and Scottish trail centers.

Your hosts Ady and Jo are brilliant guiding you through anything from long uphills (if you're so inclined), and brilliant scenery, to long sweeping single track, rocky twisty fun switchbacks, this place has it all for any riding ability. The mix of riding, eating and food and chilling out time make for a perfect bike holiday.

Stuart Clark  - Sydney, Australia

I had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The scenery was amazing, the weather was fantastic and the cycling was way beyond my expectations. Having not had much experience prior to my visit, by the end of the week I was negotiating trails i would never have thought possible before I arrived. My confidence and ability had improved greatly. The hospitality and patience shown by Ady and Jo was beyond the call of duty. I can whole heartedly reccomend the Rivierabike experience, even if you are a bit of a novice as I was.

Gary O'Neil  - Co Mayo, Ireland

An excellent holiday with fantastic accommodation, trails and people! We stayed in one of the Agriturismos which had excellent food and accommodation and views of the surrounding wooded mountain sides. The villages have a lovely rustic feel to them with friendly bars and locals, but of course the trails are the most important aspect - they rocked! If you like dry, dusty trails completely void of other users such as walkers or even other mountain bikers - you will love this place! I took advantage of the full up-lift service to get the most amount of gravity time on the holiday, I ride mainly XC back home in England so felt I had earned some downhilling. One downhill lasted 30 minutes which is a long time to maintain total concentration and hands on the bars, all of which you will need on the super technical switchbacks and rocky chutes. These trails make the Wales and Scotland trail centres seem like blue runs and I would compare it favourably with Alps riding too (Morzine, Les Gets etc.) The trails are simply longer, more enjoyable, and more available than those reached by the ski lifts in the Alps. You have to try the riding here it is simply amazing, definitely the best I have done.

Steve Breed  - London, UK

Superb long switchback singletrack for experienced riders. Beautiful climate and scenery. Fantastic food with cyclists proportions.

Huw Lloyd  - Surrey, UK

Our hosts were incredibly accommodating, flexible and laid back--a perfect fit for us. They quickly evaluated our skill level and tailored the week's rides accordingly. As well, Adrian makes a fantastic coach, providing excellent riding tips for less skilled riders like myself and helping to push riders to the very edge of their riding comfort level. My skills have improved dramatically and I have now mastered switchbacks and rocky terrain that I always used to walk.

Shiloh Ballard  - California, USA

What a place for a holiday! The riding was out of this world, and pushed me to my limits. The scenery and weather were beautiful, and the hosts were fantastic! My wife and I will definately be back for the new season! Cheers Guys!

Matt Bailey  - Portsmouth, UK

Thank you so much for a fantastic week of cycling. You were so friendly and helpful and made us all feel very welcome. You went out of your way to accommodate all levels of cycling and I recommend you most highly. A wonderful holiday.
