Mountain Passes

We have a huge range of cycling routes for every ability and fitness level

At the beginning of the week we’ll help you get your bike ready before heading out on a short local ride. This will help you to find your bearings and make any adjustments needed to your bike. During the ride we’ll show you where the outdoor 50m pool is and ride up to our local alpine lake. Then we’ll point out the best craft beer, the best patisserie, wine bar and cafe in town and show you where our favourite bike shop is.

We’ll set off for rides at approximately 9:30am with our lead riders, coach and support vehicle, ensuring that everyone is able to ride at their own level. Some days we might need to stagger the start times for different groups and this will help us all get to the top of a climb or picnic stop at a similar time. We’ll either have picnics in scenic spots while out on the ride or back at the chalet. We try to avoid being out on the road past 3pm as it can get very hot. The afternoon is your time to relax and unwind. We have a hot tub, each room has a balcony and Morzine town is a short 10 minute walk at a leisurely pace.

Cycle, relax and unwind in the French Alps this summer. Our friendly staff will help you get the most from a week with us.
