MALLORCA RIDE CAMP

Discover the island cycling paradise of Mallorca on our 6-day Ride Camp. Climb into the Tramuntana mountains & take on the switchbacks of Sa Calobra, cruise through the vineyards of Binissalem & Pla i Llevant. Enjoy coffee breaks in the picturesque towns & villages dotted across the island. Don’t forget to test your legs with some laps of the Sineu velodrome and, perhaps best of all, enjoy plenty of kilometers with views of the deep blue Mediterranean sea. Enjoy a base in Puerto Pollença, the cycling capital of the island & pretty fishing village with plenty of white sandy beaches and the famous Tolo’s cafe (which houses the yellow 2012 Tour de France winning bike belonging to champion Bradley Wiggins).

Ride early season base miles in a mild climate and get a head start for the cycling season ahead. Spring and Autumn in Mallorca offer near perfect cycling conditions with temperatures ranging from 10 degrees at night to 17 degrees in the day. Whilst there is plenty of climbing there will be freedom to ride at your own pace and take a break whenever you need to. Remember, on an Eat Sleep Cycle tour all you have to think about is enjoying your ride and on this Ride Camp enjoy the comfort of a support vehicle. We take care of everything so you can savour the ride of a lifetime.

IS THIS TOUR FOR ME?

Yes!

The Mallorca Ride Camp is focused on long base miles to prepare you for the season ahead. Whilst there is plenty of climbing, there will be freedom to go at your own pace (because we understand that fitness is not its highest in the Spring!)

The support vehicle will never be far from the group should you wish to take a break, making this tour accessible for Level 2 (Intermediate) riders looking for a challenge.

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 half-board, including breakfast and evening meals at our hotel.

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!

I had a terrific trip. Definitely the best organised cycle trip I’ve been on, in a beautiful part of the world.
