The Cycling

Ride through breathtaking scenery, tackle legendary climbs and enjoy exhilarating descents, all at your own pace and in the company of other cycling enthusiasts.

Chalet L'Etable is located at the foot of the Col du Corbier, which has featured in the Tour de France 7 times since 1947. Surrounded by iconic climbs, high mountain passes, charming villages, refreshing lakes, turbulent rivers and unforgettable scenery, your base is situated in the middle of an alpine cycling haven.

Whether you’re looking to challenge yourself to the max by embracing some of our world-famous climbs, such as Col de Joux Plane and Col de la Colombiere, or whether you’d rather get some kilometres under your belt cycling round lake Geneva, there is a range of cycling available on our doorstep to suit what you’re looking for.

A number of cycling events take place over the summer. For a glimpse of Froome, Contador and many more cycling legends, the Critérium du Dauphiné race usually passes nearby in June. If you'd prefer to participate, the annual Morzine CycloSportive also takes place in June, challenging riders over 100Km or 160Km and culminating with the ascent of the famous Col de Joux Plane. Alternatively, the twice-annual time trial climb from Morzine to Avoriaz takes place in July and August.
