Morzine, France


Morzine is perhaps better know as a mountain bike destination, but don't be fooled by the Star Wars extra look- a-likes hanging out round the cable cars with big bouncy bikes, the riding for us skinny wheeled lot is also great. 

Where to Ride?

The Col de Joux Plane is the most famous and hated (or loved - Ed) climb in the area. But the Col de Aravais,and Col de Ramaz are all reachable from here and there are many other great roads to ride.  

Where to Stay?

Stay in the Hotel Hermine Blanche. It's super bike friendly and has rental Specilaized bikes. Contact us if you would like to know more . 

Where to Eat?

There are many choices to eat in Morzine, wherever you eat search out Tartiflette. This is a local dish made of potatoes, local cheese, bacon and onions. Delish, and just what you need after a day bagging cols.

What to do, other than ride?

Other than cycling and spending time in the town, there are many other mountain sports to try your hand at, lakes to swim in and even a bowling alley. 

What Climb not to miss?

Don't miss riding the Col de Joux Plane from the Samoens side.

What you didn't know about Morzine?

Until 1862 there was no road into Morzine!
