Les Gets and Morzine Mountain Biking Holidays
There really is something for everyone in Les Gets and Morzine! With 75km of marked mountain bike routes and dedicated lifts for mountain bikers, Les Gets is a truly biking friendly resort. The stunning scenery just adds to the fantastic experience of mountain biking in the Alps.
For the expert & pro level riders there are challenging downhill biking routes and a fantastic bike park to push the most skilled freeride biker. Two great names – Kona and Fabien Barel – have joined forces to create a Freeride Mountain Bike playground! Fabien Barel (twice mountain bike World Champion including here in Les Gets in 2004) is the technical advisor for the Kona Bike Park – an amazing selection of jumps, walls, tabletops and gaps to challenge even the most fearless of freerider!
Les Gets is perfectly formed as a mountain bike resort. With the bike park plus 10 downhill trails to suit every rider – a week just isn’t long enough…. tthere is also an airbag set up in the village for those evenings when you still have the energy for more! It is open at least three evenings a week for your freestyle practice….or maybe just to watch some of the impressive (and not so impressive) freestyle riders! We even have special Big BMX bikes you can use!
For families & children there are stunning cross country and downhill routes to try out mountain biking and enjoy the beautiful mountains on slightly less extreme routes! With clearly marked and graded routes biking can be enjoyed by all the family without fear of stumbling across the downhill extreme riders (or their jumps) by mistake.
Children may also like to have a go at their own mini jump park and North Shore area. There is a small North Shore area right in the village where children can get a feel for riding along the wooden obstacles. They are small, low to the ground and perfect for a first go - whatever your age!
Cross country is extremely well catered for with six routes available to suit different skill and fitness levels. Cross country is a fantastic way to improve your fitness and enjoy the mountain scenery from your bike, but if you pick an advanced route beware taking your eyes off the track for too long!
Whichever category you fit into – mountain biking in the beautiful Alpine resort of Les Gets will be an experience you will want to repeat every summer.
