Congratulations and encouragements are in order.

Morzine is one of the 34 towns awarded the 2022 « Ville à Vélo du Tour de France », which means Cycling town of the Tour de France.

This award has four levels, symbolised by little yellow bikes appearing on signs that the towns can install at the entrance to their territory. The criteria takes into account the size of the town, the strategy of developing cycling infrastructure, concrete actions linked to encouraging cycling, (teaching in schools, awareness campaigns, rides etc.) or even any help offered to clubs or groups involved in cycle sport in the area. Only the major cities such as Paris, Copenhagen (Denmark) and Valkenburg (Holland) achieved level 4.
