IS THIS TOUR FOR ME?

The Mallorca Experience is for cyclists who love to combine quality cycling with unique cultural experiences.

The support vehicle will never be from the group should you wish to take a break, making this tour accessible for all levels of cyclist. Whilst the group rides together on the flat guests are invited to enjoy their own pace on the climbs giving everyone flexibility to enjoy their day in the saddle.

We are experienced at adjusting rides to suit different rider levels within a group. Please give us a call if you have any doubts or questions.

FOOD & ACCOMMODATION

Rooted in local traditions and ingredients that can be found on the island, you can expect plenty of terrific almonds and juicy olives to feature. Not to mention the fat walnuts, plump lemons and salt from the wonderful natural salt plains in the south.

The tour is full-board, including breakfast and evening meals at our hotel, and a simple lunch served roadside or in cafes en route.

The enthusiasm of Louise, Lee and Brian is so highly addictive, it makes me regret I was able to spend only 2 days cycling with them. They take care of everything and show you around like a good friend would. Impossible not to love this small business!
