Join us for our training week on the magical island of Mallorca. Spectacular scenery, varied terrain and fine gastronomy make this a great addition to the tour roster.
Mallorca has been on the cycling radar for many years but we resisted the temptation to run a tour there, however our inaugural tour in April 2018 showed us, and our guests, why it is such a popular destination. We have put a Ride and Seek slant on the experience and it is a trip we are delighted to have on our tour roster. It also serves as the perfect preparation for taking on our Epic Adventures, in particular the 3 Islands that follows shortly afterwards.
On the cycling front, the varied terrain of the island makes it a perfect destination. Rolling low hills, a pan-flat plain, and a mountain range of perfect proportions (high enough to excite the adventurous, not so high as to be closed to snow) mix beautifully to provide great ride variety. The 300 days of sunshine per year help too.
In terms of the tour structure we were keen to avoid the cookie cutter approach though and have stuck with many of the elements that feature on our regular tours – Garmin navigation technology to enable you to ride at your own pace, optional extra loops, a gastronomic focus and an embracing of the local history and culture.
At the same time, we have also included some of the camp elements that work so well such as a tour soigneur for massages and the joy of staying in one place for the duration of the tour.
With a great hotel booked on the beach in Puerto Pollensa and a guide team that knows the Island really well we are looking forward to putting our own slant on the bike tour scene in Mallorca.
