Over the summer we got seriously hooked on downhill mountain biking. It's got it all: the speed, the adrenaline, flying through the air and hanging on to the edge. It’s an addictive pastime and Downhill Only is a homage to this exciting sport.
After a week in Tignes with amazing conditions, exciting trails and the luxury of the up lift taking you in style to the top of the runs; we never wanted to go uphill again.
All week we were accompanied by the lovely marmot. Dotted over the hillside and constantly calling, they helped as a reminder that the mountains are a shared luxury. These lucky furry little creatures get to live yearlong in the most stunning surroundings. We are merely visitors.
If they could ride, why would they ever go up? They would just pin it Downhill Only all summer long.
Downhill Only is part of Glower's "I RIDE" Series.
