Summary

Introduction

 

Buzz Cycling and Triathlon was founded by Joe and Amelia Pearson, who have a wealth of experience in triathlon and cycling, having competed across the globe in major events.

They have been coaching in Morzine since 2012 and have established Buzz Cycling and Triathlon which is aimed at providing you with a truly enjoyable mountain holiday filled with adventure or relaxation or a little bit of both.

Joe and Amelia also run Buzz Performance who offer personalised training programs, specialist coaching and technical analysis.

Joe and Amelia have experienced many training locations but their thoughts always returned to Morzine. The facilities are first class and the town, which understands the needs of visitors, offers you a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

British Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist Jodie Stimpson, Olympic Silver Medallist Lisa Norden, World Champion Emma Moffat and other world class triathletes have all based themselves in Morzine during the summer months with the help of Buzz Cycling and Triathlon.

Accommodation

Accommodation

 

The accommodation is very close to the centre of Morzine but is located in a cul-de-sac away from the noise of the town, giving you the best of both worlds.

The chalet accommodation’s living area is open plan with floor to ceilings windows offering you views of the surrounding mountains.  The large dining and seating areas ensure everyone is comfortable.  

The chalet accommodation sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms. The penthouse master suite & two of the King Size rooms have ensuite bathrooms. The two bedrooms which share a bathroom have the benefit of their own terrace with mountain views.

Facilities include Wi-Fi throughout, a large hot tub, sauna, gym and secure bike storage. You also have the benefit of smart TV with both English and French channels, as well as Netflix.  

Food is prepared by Jo & Mark from Chez Toi who have over 30 years’ experience in the hospitality industry whilst the sports specific menu is designed by Joe and Amelia. All dietary variations can be catered for provided you let Buzz Cycling and Triathlon know at the time of booking. One night a week you will have the opportunity to sample one of the recommended local restaurants.


Training Facilities

The facilities and training areas available are of a very high standard and the training possibilities are endless.

Swim, Bike, Run

 

Swimming

Pool sessions: These are held at the Parc des Dérêches which has an Olympic size, outdoor pool (heated to 27°C) or in the 25m indoor pool at the same complex.

Open Water Swim sessions: You can use Lac Montriond which is a world class open water swimming venue or Lac Les Gets.

Your pool based sessions will aim to improve your swimming technique. Open Water sessions will aim to improve your race skills as well as transition from the swim to the bike stage.

 

Cycling

The roads are well maintained and the drivers are cycling friendly, which has enhanced this region’s reputation for cycling. Cycling routes are plentiful and the terrain offers variety for your specific training. You can focus on the famous Cols or stay in the rolling countryside for speed work. Whatever the route, Buzz Cycling and Triathlon will be able to advise the best cafés for you to enjoy your cappuccino rides.

The cycling sessions offer a balance between building your fitness, improving your bike handling skills and giving you the opportunity to enjoy the Alps scenery. You will also learn about gear selection & cadence and its effects on pacing and tactics.

The local Cols have been made famous by the Tour De France. These iconic Cols include Col de Joux Plane, Col de la Ramaz, Col de la Colombiere, Col du Corbier, Col du Feu and many more.

Mountain Biking Morzine

Morzine is in the Portes du Soleil region which is at the top of every mountain biker’s bucket list. The region offers you 650km of marked trails, 10 permanent downhill trails and 4 bike parks.

There are 24 ski lifts available for mountain bikers.

The Morzine & Les Gets’ lifts operate from mid-June till mid-September

The Portes Du Soleil network opens from the end of June until the last weekend in August.

 

Running

Like the cycling routes, your running routes can vary considerably.

Flatter routes are those along the the River Dranse or around Lac Montriond, whilst you can also enjoy the undulating routes in the Valley De la Manche and the Lindarets Bowl. If you would like to experience running at 1,500metres, there is a route between Mont Chery – Mont Caly.

Running sessions will cover speed, fitness, strength as well as technique.

Comments:  I had a group of 25 triathletes stay for the final part of our Epic Camp. Amelia & Joe showed us all the routes, booked pools for us, marshalled our informal race and went the extra mile. The food was fantastic

Comments:  My sister and I stayed for one week during July for a triathlon training camp and loved it! Amelia and Joe and the team were great – so helpful, supportive and encouraging. Their coaching was also very good and specific to each individual. The chalet was so lovely to stay in and the meals served everyday were fabulous. The coaches knew great cycle routes, especially some with hills, and the run around the lake was really lovely. Having the opportunity of swimming in both the outdoor pool and lake was really good. The other 11 people on the camp were also really lovely and the lounge area really helped everyone to bond. We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in training for a triathlon and especially conquering some of the Alpine hills

Comments:  Five day cycling trip taking me up some of the best climbs of the area” A short but brilliant trip away giving me an outstanding cycling experience. Joe and Amelia were excellent and eager to share their knowledge of the area, the climbs and training. The food was exceptional and just what was in order after a hard day battling the toughest climbs in the area. I would certainly recommend and look to go back there

Comments:  A friend and I flew in from the United States to enter a bike race on part of the Tour De France course. Joe, Amelia and the entire crew at the lodge took care of our every need. All of the meals were absolutely amazing and greatly exceeded our expectations. The accommodations were nice and provided everything we needed. I would highly recommend this place if you are going in the summer to climb some of the French Alps on your bicycle. This place is wonderful
