I am from the Rockies and am looking for a European vacation destination that offers great XC style singletrack. Was thinking of Lake Garda possibly. Looking to go next September or October. Not much into the Freeride/downhill thing.
Thanks

Slovenia is one of the most overlooked destinations.Really nice alpine singletrack of various difficulty, the longer all day rides tend to have some technical sections.A plus compared to other popular destinations (Switzerlany, France, Italy, Austria, Britain, Germany,...) are much lower prices for lodging & food (& beer :D )
You can find some pics in my gallery:

Lago di Garda is nice, too, but the descents are mostly really rocky in my experience, so that could be a minus if rock gardens/steps are not your thing.

To be sincere, you can get great singletrack in all the european countries that actually have hills or mountains :)

Almost always good weather round that time:
Finale Ligure - Italy
Lago di Garda - Italy

If you feel lucky weather wise:
Chamonix - France
Wallis (Zermatt etc.) - Switzerland

The above would be my options...

Does anyone know about rides near Italian cities- Portofino/Lucca/Sienna/Rome and the Paris,France. I'm going to want to ride a demo bike since I won't have a bike since I sold mine and can't travel with a bike.

near paris you have to ride in the fontainebleau forest. a must ride. you should follow the blue "sentiers denecourt", or even better find someone to show you. (when are you coming to france?)

Austria or Italy. All great all XC but here's a taster of our Italy trails on video filmed just last week. More on the way after we get down there for a week on Saturday.

We do guiding only so you get to chose which accomm you fancy from our choice of carefully chosen hotels, apartments etc. We help with all the booking though if you need us, just ask.
