Family Week

A family friendly week for everyone.  Our previous family weeks have proven that you don’t need to be an adult to ride up mountains.  In fact we’ve had young riders aged 8 cycle up our Tour de France mountain passes, with their 3rd sister often in the support vehicle with her Mum to cheer on her brothers and Dad, stopping for picnics and ice cream along the way.  This week is a great place for cycling families of all ages to explore the mountains with expert guidance from our team and back up from our support vehicle.  This also allows us to skip some of the busier roads and take you on a great exploration of the best the French Alps has to offer.

Check out our family week video:

 

Due to popular demand, there will be two family weeks in 2018.  Take a look at the dates below and get in touch with Mike, Anna or Chris to book your places.

Coach, photographer and nanny Mel is going to be joining us again to make sure everything runs smoothly and take some of the little ones on explorations around the town, up the gondola, to the outdoor pool with a slide and to join in a host of children’s activities put on by the tourist office.

During the 2017 Family week a few of us headed to the longest water slide in Europe, a 500m long slide up the side of a mountain on the border of France and Switzerland.  Check out this short video to see what it was like:

We have an amazing chalet in Morzine that sleeps 13 and takes just 10 minutes to walk into town, close to lots of great cycling on quiet roads and riverside paths.  There’s a couple of fantastic lakes nearby that are perfect for swimming, kayaking and SUP, while both have a cafe on the edge of the lake, perfect for a coffee or ice cream while the kids play.

Summer Guide for KidsThere’s also a fantastic heated 50m open air pool with slide and children’s pool, a luge run on the mountain and different kid’s activities running in the town square throughout the summer.  The great thing is that everything is super accessible from the chalet, with only a 10 minute walk into town, yet we’re far enough out of town to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains.

Unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine and relax while our chef prepares dinner for you.  Join our family week in summer 2018 – its going to be so much fun!
