Bike Hire

One thing you’ll need is a good quality, well sorted bike to ride when holidaying in the Alps and this is the reason we put a lot of care and attention into our bike fleet. As a veritable ‘mountain bike heaven’ – the Alps have some seriously great rides, and not just for the experts. One thing’s for sure - whether you’re a beginner rider or a family of bikers looking for a (very) fun day out - then you’re going to want to give biking a go!

Hire bikes come included (for free) with your holiday. They’re perfect for valley floor trail riding, resort-level rides and some lift assisted Green trails of the ‘not-so-steep’ variety. So, just grab a bike from our racks and head out for an adventure. If biking is a big part of your holiday and you want to use the lift assisted trails, we’d always recommend renting a full suspension bike.

Free Bike Hire: Specialized Pitch (2018/19)

  • Hotel guests: Grab a bike from our racks, there’s plenty to go around.
  • Chalet guests: Your own bike for the week, just for you! (upgrade).
  • All sizes: Small, Medium & Large (Age 8 +)
  • Suitable Use: Gentle ‘Green’ trails, resort rides & valley floor trails
  • Spec: 100mm Front fork, 27.5" wheels, disc brakes

This versatile bike will soak up the valley floor trails and the (gentler) high mountain Green trails; yet be equally at home on a family bike ride pottering around the lake or along the river. With a light-weight aluminium frame, front suspension and performance-driven parts, these bikes are the perfect steed for an alpine adventure and their quality of construction will give you the confidence to ride gentle off-road trails and mountain paths. We don’t recommend using this bike for anything more than the easy Green (lift-assisted) trails which are limited in Val’D and Tignes.

Bike Availability
Bikes are available for all our hotel and chalet guests. Hotel guests can grab a bike from our racks whenever they please. For chalets, guests will have their own bike allocated to them for the week as part of our chalet bike upgrade package. For hotel guests, there are plenty of bikes to go around and if you ever have to wait, it’ll be for a short time only. In our experience you will get plenty of time on a bike during your week.

Reserve a bike
Hotel guests may reserve a bike to use all week, (with their setting unchanged), for a supplement of £79. Normally, guests get more than enough use of our free bikes (of which there are plenty!). Regrettably we cannot make refunds for pre-reserved bikes in resort.

*For Hotels Fleur des Alpes, Alpina, L’Ours Blanc in Morzine and Pacquis in Tignes: Hire bikes are available from our main (exclusive) Alpine Elements hotels, located nearby.

 

Free Bike Hire: Specialized Rip Rock (2018/19)

  • Available: At our main hotels in Morzine (Chalets have standard kids bikes)
  • For: Ages 6-10 + (alternative bikes available for under 6’s)
  • Suitable Use: Gentle ‘Green’ trails, resort rides & valley floor trails
  • Spec: Front suspension, 24" wheels, ultra-wide tyres, disc brakes

A proper little beefed up mountain bike for ages 6+ with oversize tyres which are all the rage right now. An ideal bike for kids to build confidence on gentle off-road trails and is purpose-built for fun, no matter how your little one decides to ride it. The Rip Rock features easy-to-use gears and Specialized bikes’ all-new ultra-wide tyres with 24-inch wheels to provide heaps of traction, control and confidence. Guaranteed smiles all round!

Bike Availability
A stock of Kids’ bikes and the Rip Rocks are available from our main hotels, so hotel and chalet guests can grab one from our racks at their leisure. In our experience, there are more than enough bikes to go around, but you may sometimes have a short wait in busy periods. We cannot offer a reserve-a-bike service for our kids bikes.

Free Road Bike Specialized Allez

  • Free to use: just grab one from our hotel racks
  • Road bikes located: At our main hotels
  • Adult sizes (small, medium & large)
  • Spec: FACT carbon fork, disc brakes

If you're keen to stretch your road cycling legs, this is the best place to start. The Allez' premium alloy frame is built for versatility, combining sturdy, confident handling with the rocket-like feeling of a race bike. And for durability, it includes a FACT carbon fork and a reliable Claris group set.

Bike Availability
Road bikes are available from our main hotels only, so hotel and chalet guests can grab one from our racks whenever they choose. There are plenty of mountain bikes to go around and a more limited stock road bikes but in our experience, it is rare for guests to go without a bike for long. We cannot offer a reserve-a-bike service for our kids bikes.

More on Bike availability

Bikes are available from our main hotels and chalets, so you can grab one from our racks whenever you choose. There are plenty of bikes to go around, and if you have to wait, then it’ll only be for a short time. Our reps will ensure you get more than enough use of a bike during your week.

In our experience it is rare for guests to go without a bike for long. We may have to limit your amount of use to 3 days (20-24 hrs) in any one week and not more than half a day at a time in busy periods. But in our experience, everyone will get more than enough bike-use for their week (or two) away.
