Brace yourselves Morzine! The Pass’Portes du Soleil rolls into town this week and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever! On 26th, 27th and 28th June Morzine hosts the biggest MTB event of the summer, which this year includes 80 exhibitors with huge stands, selling everything from bike wheels to hot dogs.
The organisers have also gone all-out with the entertainment programme too. For kids, there’s ‘ziganimes’, a fun circuit with unusual bikes to ride. There’ll also be bike trial shows in the streets, live music and parades and concerts on the Rue du Bourg, a MTB race through the streets of Morzine on Saturday 28th June and free bike tests organised by the exhibitors.
It’s estimated that the Pass’Portes event brings in over €2 million in revenue across the area during the three days. When registration for the challenge opened on 11th February 2015, 2625 registrations were made within just 20 minutes. Challenge starts in Morzine sold out immediately and challenge starts on the Saturday from points across the area were fully booked in just 8 minutes!
If you’re all signed up and you’re heading our way for the challenge, you’re in for a treat…
