We believe that actions speak louder than words, so find out what we get up to below.
Bike Morzine has gained incomprehensible amounts of support, advice & good times from our loyal guests, the Morzine MTB community & the wider mountain bike community. In an attempt to repay some of this debt, we support the Morzine mountain bike community in the following ways.
MATES RACES FUN, LIGHTHEARTED & ACCESSIBLE TO ALL
These are the 3 main principles of the Bike Morzine mates race series. These are not "races" as you know them; no pressure, no crappy tracks and bon vibes only. The Bike Morzine race series provides a lighthearted and interesting format to race against your mates. These races are completely free of charge and aim to bring the Morzine summer community together over their love of riding bikes, all washed down by local beers and good food. Races you'll never forget & after parties you'll never remember.
We're proud to support Chablais bike, a local Morzine association with the goal of improving mountain biking in the wider Morzine area, by creating an official body to represent the Morzine MTB community and their goals. We support Chablais bike both through direct donations, raising money through events, business support and decisions. The initial goals are to negotiate a longer summer season with the lift companies and create a pump track in Morzine. Watch this space.
At Bike Morzine, we love the mountains. Be it riding mountain bikes in the summer months, skiing in the winter and everything in-between. We're guessing if you're reading this, you're probably in love with the mountains as well. Sadly the way we enjoy the mountains, the associated seasons and activities we love are massively under threat due to Climate Change. Travel & Tourism is undoubtably one of many contributing factors to this problem and here at Bike Morzine, we believe its time companies took responsibility and give something back to the mountains that give us so much.
ONE BOOKING - ONE TREE When mountain biking in Morzine it's easy to forget how spoilt we are with the clean air, lush forests and endless mountains in Les Portes du Soleil. Increasingly so, this is not the case all over the World and with each tree cut down threatens the way we enjoy our this beautiful mountain environment and associated Morzine Summer seasons that give us so much.
In an effort to care for Morzine mountain biking and the World we live in, Bike Morzine has partnered with the amazing OneTreePlanted and for every booking from October 2020 onwards, we vouch to plant a tree on your behalf , wherever it's most needed around the World. This is Bike Morzine's gift to you our guests, completely free of charge and although it is only a small step in the right direction, we believe re-forestation to be one of the simplest ways for us to counter the impacts of our Morzine mountain biking holidays.
CARBON OFFSET We encourage guests to offset the carbon impact of their Morzine MTB Holiday. Donations are encouraged during the booking process and any donations made will be matched by Bike Morzine. This money goes towards World Lands Trust, who offset emissions by protecting threatened habitats that would otherwise have been lost, avoiding the release of stored carbon. This also enables the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2.
We recommend donating roughly 5% of the cost of the holiday, however anything you are willing to donate is appreciated. Bike Morzine will match all Carbon Offset donations.
BIKE MORZINE MERCHANDISE
Bike Morzine guests love to grab some Bike Morzine MTB merchandise as a souvenir of their Morzine MTB holiday, however we are well aware that clothing manufacturing, fast fashion & packaging have a huge impact on the environment. We are taking responsibility and making an effort to reduce the environmental impact of our Morzine mountain biking merchandise through the following steps.
All orders are posted using 100% recycled & biodegradable materials. Bike Morzine MTB merchandise is printed on organic materials and uses eco-friendly printing where possible. We have significantly upped the quality of our biking T-shirts materials and print. This comes at a price but is well worth it as the t-shirt should last for 5+ years.
