Overview - Morzine Bank Holiday Special

Based in the thriving mountain town of Morzine we are in the perfect location to help you squeeze out the most from your Bank Holiday Weekend. We’re lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the finest riding in the Alps and we’ve used our knowledge of the area to put together 3 days of riding that blend our favourite climbs and backroads with stunning scenery, classic Tour de France climbs, velvet descents, medieval towns and great food and accommodation.

Arrive on the 24th August and enjoy a fully catered package of accommodation, food and 3 days of fully supported riding. No need to take any time off work as we will return you to the airport for an evening flight on Monday the 27th

We provide a professional and attentive support service offering regular refreshments, water and food along with a selection of energy products. Picnic lunches are provided each day at a carefully selected location. The Velovation minibus is on hand for your full use whether thats a water top up, mechanical assistance or for access to extra clothing. It’s also there if everything becomes a little too much and you feel like you need a break. Both members of the support team are professionally qualified mechanics and trained in emergency first aid. We are here to help and support you along the way making your adventure relaxed, fun and stress free.
