Buzz Cycling - Reviews

I loved watching the Tour de France

I love snowboarding in the French Alps, so what better way of overcoming lack of enthusiasm of climbing than to be able to enjoy the wonderful views the French Alps have to offer in the summer cycling. I was interested in Buzz Cycling’s Tour de France holiday as it was based in Morzine, which I know from snowboarding, but also that they take you to watch segments of the Tour de France.  It was fantastic, they structured your day with guiding around the mountains to your ability in the mornings and gradually increasing the gradient of the climbs throughout the week.  The afternoons where left to us to relax using the facilities.  I was worried, being a female traveller that I would get dropped cycling but was pleased that you could take the cycling at your own level and one of the guides was with you or nearby at all times, and when your legs really had enough you could jump into the support vehicle, which I did once.  I loved watching the Tour de France coming through the final climbs of Stage 17, knowing that I had also climbed Col du Télégraphe and Col du Galibier that morning, although they must have been going 5 x faster than me. I loved the cycling so much, I am now looking forward to cycling with Buzz Cycling in Mallorca in May 2018. Thanks to Amelia, Joe and Declan for a fantastic holiday that gave my cycling a power boost and a love of climbing.

Looking forward to coming back!

We spent two weeks with Buzz in Morzine in July 2017 and are looking forward to coming back in 2018. Buzz made everything easy for our first cycling holiday: from airport transfers to bike hire, beautiful accommodation and access to the action of the Tour. The guided rides catered to my ironman husband’s ambitions of climbing mountains and my ability as a non-competitive commuter cyclist. Amelia and Joe ensured that we stopped at the best coffee places and showed us where to take the most stunning scenic photos. The food was excellent with beautiful three course meals each night and fresh croissants (amongst other cycling fuel!) every morning. The chefs did a great job of catering to mine and other guests’ dietary requirements with interesting, fresh food every day.

Even though we hadn’t met before, Amelia and Joe treated us like old friends. They listened to what we wanted out of our holiday and explained the cycling, swimming and running options. They provided tips on cycling technique and helped me improve my descending. Our highlights include cycling up the Col du Galibier to watch the Tour riders wind their way up the mountain, swimming in the beautiful Lac Montriond and hiking on our rest day from cycling.

Thanks to Amelia, Joe and the whole Buzz team – we are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Our time with Buzz far exceeded expectations – highly recommended

We thoroughly enjoyed our Tour de France holiday with Buzz in July 2017.  Accommodations were very comfortable, the food was amazing and  the rides are world class.  The ride guides were very friendly and attentive to individual needs.  The setting is spectacular; Morzine itself is worth a visit.  We appreciated the opportunity to participate in other activities such as swimming, running and hiking.  The opportunity to see the Tour de France from our bikes up close to the action was fantastic.  Our time with Buzz far exceeded expectations – highly recommended.

We felt so well looked after, from the moment we arrived, to the moment we left.

We want to thank you, and your team, for a great week with Buzz.  We had a really fantastic time.  We felt so well looked after, from the moment we arrived, to the moment we left.  We were chatting last night about what we liked best, and the list kept growing – the Joux Plane ride, the trip to Chamonix, the chalet’s location (nice stroll to the pub :)), our room, the food that Mark and Jo produced, the company (no danger of awkward silences!), bagnats…  It really was fab. We hope that we see you again sometime.

Nothing but a glowing endorsement for the whole experience!

As a middle aged, unfit ex triathlete, due to undertake a bicycle tour involving the Alps and the Dolomites( including the Zoncolan) I was after a tailored but flexible training block involving hills to get me fit enough to enjoy it! After exploring other options that were very inflexible both in rides and calendar dates offered, Buzz Cycling( Amelia and Joe ) were recommended by a mutual friend. It was a fantastic call as over nearly a month I got to know both them and their support crew very well and I have nothing but a glowing endorsement for the whole experience!
As I was there to see 4 different groups go through I was able to see the inclusive and seamless way that they dealt with each groups requirements across a broad range of abilities, interest groups and dietary and drinking preferences!
They were extremely accommodating and nothing was too much trouble, being able to accommodate extra requests whether it be extra activities (like paragliding!), different training regimes, dietary additions, transportation or beer drinking advice all  while providing nutritious and delicious food and high quality facilities and bike hire service as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, so much so that I am returning this year and taking my wife.

Great accommodation, Brilliant hosts!!!!

We (9 of us) spent a week in Morzine in July. The accomodation is first rate and catered for us and the family of 5 also staying there with ease. Joe and Amelia organised everything for us, from bike hire to tickets for the many attractions and adventures. Nothing was too much trouble. The daily meal plan prepared by Hazel was amazing. We wanted for nothing. This was a truly spectacular place. Will definitely recommend this to others and will stay there again for certain.

First Class Experience

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!

An amazing holiday

Thank you to my wonderful hosts Amelia and Joe for a fabulous holiday. This was my first cycling holiday in the Alps having skied Morzine for a number of years and I left feeling full of achievement and with lots of great memories. The cycle coaching was brilliant and me and my fellow solo travelers were lucky enough to train with the DSquad which made my holiday even more special.

I’m a relative beginner yet was made to feel very welcome and very well looked after. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both the chalet and the team for an amazing experience.

A big thank you also to the chalet staff who also made my stay so wonderful. Fabulous food, fabulous company and all in a beautiful chalet just minutes from Morzine.

See you soon team. Well done

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 expeirence. 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!

Excellent cycling spot

Rooms are clean, spacious and light, Food is excellent, including the vegetarian option. Joe and Amelia are keen cyclists and know the local mountains and those further afield very well.  All in all, a friendly, welcoming and professionally run place.

Fantastic place and service

Was in the Alps for cycling training. The hosts were amazing and very knowledgeable about the area and good cycling routes. The chalet was great and food was fantastic after a long day in the saddle.

Amazing holiday experience!!

The most amazing holiday was made even more so by Joe, Amelia & the crew. Endless activity & relaxation options, fantastic accommodation, food, wine & great hosts made for a stress free & very enjoyable experience.

Travelling with our 4 year old son was made even easier by the care & consideration shown to his needs which was always attended to with a smile. A great ability to look after singles, couples & families makes it a great place to stay & enjoy.

Whether riding the amazing climbs, taking the chairlifts, enjoying the pool facilities, checking out Morzine & it’s surrounds or relaxing at the lodge, nothing was too much trouble for Joe & Amelia.

Faultless

Everything exceeded my expectations. Our hosts Joe and Amelia not only lead the cycling tours each day but also managed to prepare 5* meals every morning and evening, and keep the lodge looking immaculate. Looking forward to booking another trip.

Brilliant Cycling Holiday

I recently spent 12 days here and I cannot find anything to fault. This was a road biking holiday and I was very well looked after by Joe and Amelia with excellent guiding and route advice. The quality of food, accommodation and standard of the chalet were faultless and the place was kept immaculate.

If I were to visit again I am not sure this trip could be improved upon in any way. I will certainly be back to stay with them again. The perfect holiday!

Faultless and great location

Excellent guidance from Joe and Amelia and great food too. The location of the chalet is excellent, and a great way to meet some like minded athletes too.

Fantastic holiday

Having just returned from my holiday, I can only say that a week is not long enough.

Joe and Amelia are fantastic chalet hosts, by far the best I have ever had, with an amazing ability to produce fantastic food, guide all the rides, and keep the chalet immaculate all with enthusiasm and a smile. Nothing was too much trouble and I really felt looked after.

The rides and swim facilities are second to none, and it’s great to have friendly people to ride with and not have to worry about the routes.

Thanks for a fantastic week-I can’t wait for next year!
