Best spots in Europe

8 posts in this topic

Hey all!

Thinking about touring Europe in the summer for a couple of weeks with my bikes: Hex, Stumpjumper and CAADX. 

Any trials spots I should consider? Also any skateparks, pump tracks etc. 

Thinking of getting the ferry then heading to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, French alps, possibly Italy then back up France on the way home.

Probably a mix of camping/air bnb.

Any suggestions would be great!

Buthiers! Some of the best natural I've ridden!

Dunkirk is a fun place to ride, and you can get the ferry straight there.  Rotterdam is really good too, and that's just up the coast from there (from memory, less than 2.5hrs).  You can boot across from Rotterdam to Cologne which has some good spots too, and is again only around a 3hr drive or so.

There's that amazing looking 'biggest in the world' pump track place in Switzerland somewhere, from memory.  Might be worth a Google.  Think it was made by Velo Solutions.  There's also Stride Indoor Park in Strasbourg which has jump lines, possibly a pump track but also a newly opened trials area too.

I think I'll have to google that too, never heard of it!

Seb, let me know when/if you're in Switzerland! :)

Think that Swiss pump track might be this one, looks pretty good. Forward to 7.10 mins for the skate park right next door.

Spain has a lot of pure trials park if that is what you are after. Felsenmeer in Germany, Buthiers in France, few other place but trials is just dying here so better skip France really...

There is an awesome bowl/skatepark by the lake in Lausanne, it's called Bowl de Vidy

Also from what I've seen in videos, the pure trials park in Cran-Gevrier in Annecy looks good

You should come to Budapest! Awesome city, lot of great spots, and everything is super cheap! :) (We also have 4-5 skatepark in the city)
