Morzine and the Portes du Soleil is an absolute mecca for many types of bikes and different riding styles. It's an area that's almost impossible to grade as the riding there is so varied. Though chairlifts look after the uplifts for you, you'll need to put some work in if you decide to venture beyond the bike park.

 

You do need to be physically strong enough to handle longer descents, especially for the steeper lines on Pleney or on the well ridden bike park trails in Les Gets and Chatel. Your arms and hands will tire easily if you haven't ridden too much before the trip.  Bike Park Wales is the perfect place to get the laps in. With a quick uplift and so many trails to choose from, it's the ideal training ground for any away trip!

 

Skills wise, there's no getting away from the fact Morzine is tough on the bike and body. Where you choose to ride will change the answer to the question 'how difficult is it?'

 

Super Morzine is an ideal zone to get your bearings. It's home to the best built and maintained trails in the Portes du Soleil. The blue run Tutti Frutti is a popular trail, with it's smooth berms and table tops, we'd consider this a good sighting trail. If you consider this too much, then Morzine isn't for you. If it looks at around your limit, then there are quite afew blues, greens and even a couple of reds in the Portes du Soleil that would be perfect for you. If this looks like it's way too easy, then you've got a plethora of amazing tracks to hit up!

Hi Guys,

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.

 

A buzzing ski resort packed full of restaurants, bars and alpine culture, Morzine's restaurant scene was once a fairly drab affair in Summer, owners preferring to take the time off or open softly with a minimal menu and hours. Not so now with Summer offering new opportunities, new ingredients, new menus and new, sunny terraces breathing new life into the town. This is driven by the young generation of Morzinoise and British owners who are ready to move with the times.

Liguria is a region rich in food culture in a country obsessed with what goes on the plate. There simply is nowhere else in the world that cares so passionately about food. The dedication to eating well shouldn't be mis-understood, it's not about fine dining, table cloths and intricate presentation, it's about love.
