I`m planning on doing some free riding in the Alps in August. Where is the best place to go for free riding in the Italian and French Alps? I have a cannondale full sus free ride bike and my level is about intermediate. I`m game so any recommendations for advanced terrain appreciated aswell.

Also, does anyone know of any fun routes to cross countries over the Alps. Im may be doing it solo so would prefer info on shorter crossings, i.e less than 2 days.

If there`s anyone who would be keen on meeting up for some riding please let me know. My dates are fairly flexible.

No psycho`s please.

If you are fit:
- Tour around the Mont Blanc, you will ride trails in France, Switzerland and Italy. Takes you about 5 days if you take it easy but if you are fit and commited you can do it in 3 days.
- Fenetre du Durand, from Switzerland into Italy over the grand St Bernard and back to Switzerland via the Fenetre du Durand. Takes 2 days.

Check www.bike-magazine.de they have multiple Alp crossings on the web.
