WORK 13 - MOUNTAINBIKE CURRICULUM FOR TEACHERS

By: Claude Balsiger November 12, 2016

Local mountain biking culture is key for a destination‘s long term success. But culture cannot be installed or set up from the outside. Rather it has to grow from the inside and we can only provide the circumstances and the tools.

One of these tools is a specific mountain biking curriculum we developed for teachers. The curriculum consists of different activities, from a short skills session to a whole day excursion on bikes. Included are checklists for teachers so that the planning and executing of their bike activities with their students are as easy and safe as possible.

WORK 04 - DESIGNING THE FIRST FLOW TRAIL IN JAPAN

By: Claude Balsiger May 07, 2016

The ski resorts around Niseko on Japan‘s northern island of Hokkaido are bound to become the country‘s leading mountain biking destinations.

Allegra already designed different trails on different mountains, including the first flow trail. It is located perfectly at the edge of town and is surrounded by sports and service facilities. Further flow trails could be constructed and will be designed when a team of trail specialists returns in 2016.

By: Claude Balsiger March 14, 2016

On November 3rd 2015 we published our first fat bike report, predicting fat biking to grow step by step into a serious subculture of mountain biking. We got a ton of feedback on our report and our friends at MCF even translated it to a French version. However, we are still amazed at the quantity of new offers, solutions and surprising developments we witnessed during the past winter.
