It’s Nearly Time for HOG!

This time next week the resort of Morzine will be bracing itself for the invasion of HOG – that’s the Harley Owners Group to you and me! HOG are returning to Morzine for their forth annual bike festival between 11th and 14th July, and you’ll find the resort packed out with polished chrome and a lot of leather. But you don’t have to be on a bike to join in the fun. Here’s what else is going on in Morzine during the HOG weekend…
