Mallorca: 10 days in cycling heaven

More than 150,000 cyclists head to Mallorca each year for the exceptional cycling, and the warm welcome.

Our 20+ years of experience in leading trips to Mallorca puts you in the perfect spot to just relax, ride your bike and let us take care of you and the details.

  • Fly to Palma de Mallorca, Spain (PMI), and you will be picked up at the airport.
  • We’ll stay the Esmerelda Park Hotel in Cala D’Or, about an hour’s drive from the airport.
  • Relax and let us take care of you.

The Cycling

The island of Mallorca offers a fabulous variety of terrain and scenery and we will explore a great deal of it. Mountain days may include challenging switchback climbs of up to 15km.

Interior routes offer rides on Mallorca’s labyrinth of quiet, stone-walled roads through pastoral farmlands and ancient vineyards. Spectacular shoreline roads offer flat gentle routes, connecting picturesque towns and beaches. It is just a wonderful place to ride your bike.

 

This is a cycling holiday..

… not a training camp.
That said, we take our group riding seriously and our leaders focus on quality group riding. For those with little group riding experience, we are there to teach you all about safe, predictable, enjoyable group riding.

  • Upon arrival, we try to get everyone set up on their bikes and out for a short ride to flush out the travel and on to the Mallorcan time-zone.
  • In addition, there are 7 riding days and a full rest day. (Of course, we are adults on holiday and you are welcome to take more rest days.)
  • Itineraries are adjusted to meet the needs of the groups.
  • Mallorca has mountains and we will climb them. Twice,  we will  transfer the group and bicycles to remote starts and explore as much of the island as possible.

Choose from 3 groups each day.

There are 3 group options your day’s ride. Each group will be led by a guide who can change a flat tire,  find a good coffee and lunch spot and lead a safe group ride.

  • Groupo Relaxo – rides 50-80km/day while enjoying great coffee stops, town squares, lunch stops and all the beauty of Mallorca. There will be challenges and new experience but not at the expense of smiles, laughter and the pleasure of riding.
  • Groupo Not-so-Relaxo – rides a little faster and further but with the same smile and need for coffees and lunch stops. 80-100km is the norm.
  • Groupo Rapido – puts in more kilometres but maintains the focus on quality group riding. There are plenty of challenges in this groupo, but the spirit of the group takes care of everyone and gets us all home for happy hour.

All 3 groups leave at the same time and aim to be  back at the hotel patio for a shared happy hour.
