The Riders Weeks are back for 2017 - bigger and better than ever before! After the huge success of the past 4 years running select weeks throughout the summer MTB season in Morzine we have now decide to run these fully packed weeks every week from the 24th June to the 26th August 2017. So, in total there will be 9 weeks available with 20 spaces on each week running from Saturday to Saturday over the summer MTB season in Morzine.
For the 2017 MTB season in Morzine we will be hosting the Riders Weeks at a new chalet, Chalet Flo. Chalet Flo is a large chalet sleeping up to 20 people over 9 ensuite bedrooms covering 2 floors with a huge garden, hot tub, steam room and it’s own licensed bar. Chalet Flo has been hand picked by our professional property pickers due to it’s abundance of essential facilities we believe are needed for our clients to have the best mountain bike holiday possible in Morzine.
The world famous Pleney MTB lift
The chalet benefits from a secure bike storage room located inside the property itself with no direct external access, it’s like fort knox and with increased 5 finger discount visitors to Morzine this is great news. There will also be a mechanic and bike workshop onsite for 2017, here you can tinker with your bikes and have all the tools you could need, if your skills are not up to the job our mechanic will be there to help, this is not a free service but it’s a very good value one. As always there will be a Karcher jet wash and wash down area along with work stands, track pumps and cleaning brushes from ParkTool, let alone the FREE JuiceLubes products we offer all our clients including oils, cleaners, grease, sealant and polish. With this combination your bikes will be Morzine ready every morning you leave the chalet.
Chalet Flo is a the largest in the mtbbeds collection, sleeping 20 people over it’s 9 bedrooms. The chalet also benefits from a large and very sociable lounge / dining area on the 2nd floor with ample dining space and several big sofas placed in front of the flat screen TV, perfect for some down time after a hard day on the hill. This area also has direct access onto the balcony with more sofa’s, a BBQ and stunning views of the Mountain peaks that surround Morzine, Nyon and up to Avoriaz. The balcony area overlooks the huge garden with its table and chairs and Table tennis table which will surely see some vicious battles if 2016 is anything to go by.
There are several bedrooms on the first floor that enjoy direct access onto a decked terrace area with lazy boy chairs and small tables through French doors. These room also have direct access into the garden, the other rooms benefit from small balconies looking out towards the Pleney Mountain and Les Gets or from the back of the property looking out towards Avoriaz and the stunning Montriond valley cliffs.
As with all of the Riders Weeks chalet there is always a hot tub and this one is no exception, at the back of the property facing out towards Super Morzine and down the valley toward Geneva is a huge 8 person hot tub, this can be use day and night until 10pm and is great for relaxing and giving those battered muscles and good soaking. We are currently working on a steam room and it looks like the owners are very keen so that could be a bonus on arrival.
Downstairs on the ground floor we have the bike mechanic and the workshop set up, this is also in the same area as we have our bar, which is fully licensed and will be selling beers and soft drinks to quench that thirst after a hard day or to assist with the bike maintenance. The workshop will have all the common tools you would expect to see in a workshop, the mechanic will be on hand when possible to help with any technical difficulties you have. This is a great area down here with some tables and chairs, sofa and table football, so be it bike, beers or games we got you covered.
The basement bar and future bike workshop area
The Riders Weeks are fully catered and the quality of the food is something we have alway been hot on, the company is owned and run by passionate bikers but that does not mean we don't appreciate good food. We have had our professional chef Tiffany for the past 4 years and she will be training our chef for the 2017 summer also so you can expect great food once again. Breakfast is a continental affair with the option of poached/scrambled if the host is feeling friendly then dinner is two course served at 7:45/8pm depending on everyone's return from the pub. If you don't make it back we will keep it in the fridge for you, it will still taste good in the morning. See our sample menu below.
