There are 15 mapped road cycling routes leaving from Morzine alone available to check out online or in a little printed guide.

There’s also the now famed Morzine-Avoriaz hill climb (Grimpée Cycliste). Taking place twice each summer, it’s the fastest person up the 14,6km, 860m high climb of the Joux Verte. The record of 33 minutes by Bernard Hinault in 1979 still stands!
