An example of a typical day

Rise and shine for breakfast of maybe scrambled eggs or pancakes. Enjoy a coffee from the beans to the cup coffee machine, and then head out on the bike, taking in the stunning scenery along the way, and tackle a col or two.

Take a photo at the top of the mountain, stop for a coffee, or maybe some lunch. Finally, you will return to the chalet and soothe your tired legs in the hot tub and sauna. Finish the day with a delicious meal in the comfort of the chalet.

Buzz Cycling chose Morzine as their home for Buzz because throughout their sporting travels, they had not found anywhere else quite like it. The town has a relaxed and spacious feel, with gorgeous chalets, alpine trees, and mountains all around. In the summer, it is decked out with hanging baskets of flowers and is picture perfect.

Lac Montriond and Lac Les Gets are stunning locations, as well as many other beauties.
