The Hideout Hostel, Morzine Guide to Summer – Road Biking

Road Biking in Morzine

Road biking in Morzine is a cyclists paradise. There are plenty of mountain roads and Cols to conquer here… if its good enough for the Tour de France… Its good enough for us. Yes, its a tough old climb to the top, but it is one of the best feelings when you reach the top of the Col or your goal. And what goes up… must come down! 

Here are some of our favourite rides: 

  • Col du Joux plane – From Morzine to the top, 10.9km long at an average gradient of 6.5% (maximum 11%) Incredible views over to Mont Blanc. 
  • Col de la Joux Verte – From Morzine via Lac Montriond and the Goat village to the Col is 12.5km with an average gradient of 6.4% (maximum 11.1%)
  • Route d’Avoriaz – All of the hair pin bends (19 of them) with an average gradient of 6% and 860metres of vertical incline
  • Col de Ramaz Loop – From Morzine, up to Les Gets, down to Taninges and Muessy, up the Col de Ramaz mountain pass to the resort of Praz de Lys, down a little, then up to the the Col D’Encrenaz, down to Essert Romand and finish in Morzine (at the bar for a well deserved Aperol Spritz) 65km loop with 1648m of elevation gain. 
  • There are various events and group rides throughout the summer, such as the Haut Chablais Granfondo

We can also arrange guided and supported road bike holidays, to find out more get in touch with us
