The winter season in the Alps is pretty much over except for ski and snowboard touring, so the sun is out and its time to start building all of our new bike hire fleet to use in the bikes shops in Morzine, Tignes and Les Arcs.

The weather in the mountains in May can be somewhat unreliable, but when the sun is out its the perfect opportunity for us to get out on our new E-bikes which we have available to hire in all of our bike shops in Morzine, Tignes & Les Arcs.
The Specialized Demo hire bike pictured below is more beautiful in the flesh! This is our DH bike we hire in our Morzine bike shop.
