Morzine cycling

Morzine is blessed with a great selection of tough and some not so tough climbs in the near vicinity, so there is no shortage of interesting routes available. We have prepared a great selection based on our personal experience of riding them. Each route is categorised by length and vertical ascent so it’s easy to choose a route to suit your desires for the day.

Actual navigation is by detailed, printed maps which are freely available in the chalet. You can download these routes to a Garmin or smartphone via a link to a .tcx file. Paul and the team know the area well, and are always happy to advise on the best route choices for your group.
