Oxygene has launched its own dedicated travel service, Oxygene Ski Collection (OSC) that helps holiday makers in summer and winter choose accommodation and activities in the French Alps. To run alongside Oxygene’s established ski and snowboard school, the company has now launched its very own cycle brand, Oxygene.bike
Now, through the OSC and Oxygene.bike, mountain enthusiasts can book a range of cycling activities in several resorts, including tailor made e-mountain biking experiences.
Resorts include Meribel, Val d’Isère, Tignes and Courchevel.
Why go on an eMTB holiday?
Electric mountain bikes have opened up the opportunity for many different levels of rider, whatever their fitness level might be, to help access and explore the mountains like never before.
Having an electrically assisted motor helps the rider move forward more easily and often faster, meaning they can cover more area with less effort.
Oxygene Marketing Manager, Angeline Chauvin, said: “Thanks to the new Oxygene Ski Collection travel agency, you can enjoy tailor-made mountain holidays, not only in the winter but now in the summer too. Explore the most beautiful itineraries and marvel at the spectacular mountain scenery during your stay. An eMTB holiday provides an ideal mountain break for families, friends and even seminars or team building groups. You’ll be in awe of the beauty of the French Alps while breathing plenty of ‘Oxygene’ along the way”.
