Nowadays the sport of cycling comes in two versions: the classic road cycling and mountain bike. Many of those who love one they also love the other. Speaking of a mountain resort like Courmayeur, preference goes to the mountain bike, which, as the name implies, takes place in its natural habitat.
At the Hotel Aigle bike sports enjoy special attention. Precisely so, every year there is a growing number of fans who use this hotel as a base for their holidays cycling.
