We love exploring the endless trails, swooping down flowing singletrack and discovering new terrain. Electric mountain-bikes have changed the game, allowing us to go further, stay out longer and reach new areas.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Our goal is to pass our passion for mountain biking onto you. Anyone who can ride a bike, regardless of their age, ability or fitness can give it a go and enjoy our beautiful mountains. We’re sure that once you’ve tried it you’ll get the bug too.
Our instructors work during the winter as piste security, ski instructors and mountain guides. This means they know these mountains inside and out. With their knowledge and experience, you are in great hands.
MEET OUR OXYGENE BIKE INSTRUCTORS
Hello, I’m Julien. I’m a mountain guide with a real appreciation for the alpine environment and the different adventures that can be enjoyed here. I am lucky enough to have made my passion my job, having swapped my competition jersey for that of a mountain bike instructor. The Vanoise is my favorite playground but having ridden all over, I can show you the best trails across the Alps. Whether you are here to race, or to enjoy the scenery and stories of our mountains, I guarantee we will have a great time. I also work and ride with Adrien and Victor, coaching the kids in the Meribel mountain bike club.
Hi! I’m Adrien and I’ve lived in the Meribel valley for over 20 years. I’m an Oxygene ski instructor in winter and am known for my love of taking my students off-piste, away from the crowds. I have worked for more than 8 summers on the Meribel bike park, developing the trails and shaping the jumps and berms. Outside of Meribel I ride with Julien and Victor, exploring the trails of the Tarentaise and Beaufort regions and beyond. I also run the Meribel kids mountain bike club. We have more than 80 kids who ride with us, many of whom we accompany to local competitions. Whatever the season, I love helping people discover our beautiful mountains and using sport as a way to get close to nature, or simply as a way to let off steam.
Hey, I’m Victor. I’ve been riding bikes for about as long as I can remember. I obtained my mountain biking diploma in Romania, updating my qualifications in France when I made the Savoie my home more than 10 years ago. During the winter I work as a ski patrol rescuer in the 3 Valleys. I have dedicated my life to exploring the mountains on skis, bikes and even from the skies (I paraglide too). I work with Adrien at the Meribel mountain bike club and love taking my groups on a variety of terrain and watching as they build confidence on the trails.
