Paul - Lead Mountain Bike Guide

Valais MTB was born out of Paul’s passion for outdoor adventures. He has been exploring trails for 20 years and guiding professionally for over 10 years. It was this passion for the outdoors that led him to study Outdoor Education and qualify as an instructor in mountain biking, kayaking and rock climbing. His ideal mountain bike trip involves high alpine singletrack, all mountain or back country riding and remote wilderness.

He is highly skilled in navigation and map reading and is guaranteed to take you on an epic two wheeled journey through some of Europe’s most epic singletrack. His biking and navigation skills have taken him to many trails off the beaten track across North America, Scotland, Ireland and the French, Italian and Swiss Alps. He is also a qualified rock climbing and kayak instructor.


Áine - Mountain Bike Guide

Áine is a born coach and educator qualifying as a Physical Education teacher in 2003. Her passion is Outdoor Education and since taking up mountain biking in 2011 she quickly qualified as a mountain bike guide sharing her passion for exercising outdoors, adventure biking and introducing women to racing. Her ideal mountain bike trip is a point-to-point adventure across high Alpine terrain.

Áine has guided with a reputable mountain bike company on Canada’s North Shore in the past and has also worked as one of BC Bike Race’s managers, the longest singletrack race in the world.

She works as a PE teacher in Montreux by Lake Geneva and enjoys guiding with Valais MTB in the summer. She dabs in and out of racing downhill and enduro when she has the time for Graviti Driven, a Canadian Race Team.

Her fun loving personality and energetic enthusiasm make her an ideal guide.



JoJo the ultimate trail dog

JoJo has been a big part of many bike rides and has been on most of our two wheeled adventures exploring new trails in Ireland, Canada, America and the French and Swiss Alps. Her favourite adventures end with a tent pitched high in the mountains and snuggling in the porch ready for the long run home the next morning.

You won’t meet a more placid trail dog that lives for adventure and belly rubs. She also picks the best lines, loves her North Shore and enjoys getting some air too!! Not too many trail hounds can say they descended Western America’s longest Singletrack trail!!
