Experience level

We welcome cyclists of all abilities, but a reasonable level of fitness recommended to ensure you get the best out of your trip!

Women's cycling is on the rise, and we want to celebrate that with a week's training camp in our cycling paradise! 

 

We have pulled together an experienced team to host you - we understand what's important to you in a cycling holiday and any concerns you might have along the way, and are here to make sure you get the most out of your cycling break.  

 

Using our hotel in Alcudia as a base, we will take you on a stunning exploration of this cycling paradise, giving you the opportunity to challenge yourself on the climbs, get some group riding experience, and have plenty of fun along the way. 

 

We recognise (and love the fact!) that there's super strong women riders out there, and also understand that there is a proportion of us who are still at the early stages of the cycling journey. Our camps cater for varying abilities and we typically split into smaller groups based on speed and / or experience. 

 

All our rides are led by experienced ride leaders, who will be on hand to manage the group and help you with any mechanical issues on the road. There is a strong focus on team spirit on our tours, both on and off the bike, with rides generally ending up with refreshments near the beach! We pride ourselves on bringing together great groups of women keen to make new cycling friends and support each other on their cycling journeys.

 

Northern Mallorca is full of iconic rides, which has made the island as famous for cycling as it is today! From Formentor Lighthouse to the Sa Calobra climb, there's a plethora of routes to be explored! We've included a sample programme of what to expect below, however we are keen to ensure that all needs are catered for, so  this may be adapted to accommodate the abilities of the group.  We promise to take you on some top rides, give you the chance to meet some new cycling companions and in many cases achieve more than you thought possible!

Day 1: Porreres (110km, 750m) OR Santa Magdalena (75km, 750m)

These routes take us into the heart of Mallorca, taking in a combination of faster roads and smaller lanes as we snake our way through the undulating terrain.

 

The longer route heads towards the South of the island to the pretty town of Porreres, whereas the shorter route passes through the towns of Ullaro and Buger before reaching an optional climb up to the Santa Magdalena monastery.

Day 2: Orient (115km, 1,000m) OR Alaro (95km, 750m)

A ride out into the foothills of the Tramuntana mountain range to take on some of the smaller climbs - we'll head out via the scenic Mallorcan backroads and camis (lanes) and enjoy lunch in Alaro. 

 

The longer ride takes in the climb of Col D'Honor and passes through the valley and the town of Orient before enjoying an exhilarating descent on a top road surface down to Alaro.

Day 3: Sa Calobra (115km, 2000m) or Sa Batalla (70km, 800m)

The climb everyone comes to the island to do! We head into the mountains via the Col de sa Batalla, which passes through a stunning gorge. After coffee we continue through 10km of undulating terrain along the mountain roads towards the top of the Sa Calobra climb. Here you can look down and see the road twisting and turning below you and witness what's in store! From here we descend down to the town of Sa Calobra before starting our challenging 10km ascent back out! 

 

We return to Alcudia via a similar route, but descend from the mountains via the Col de Femenia, aeguably the best descent in Mallorca.

 

The shorter ride option takes in the Col de sa Batalla climb and the Col de Femenia descent - a challenge in itself!

Day 4: Petra (75km, 750m)

This route takes us via the scenic farmlands and back roads out to Petra. The terrain is undulating, with a mixture of surfaces, so demands our full attention as we make our way there.

 

We break for refreshments in Petra - the typical Mallorcan square with a fountain, next to the church makes you feel that you’re getting some culture as well as enjoying some of the best cycling you’re likely to experience! The square is buzzing with cyclists during the season, and the coffee and cake here is to die for. 

Day 5: Puig Major and Soller (135km, 1,850m) OR Sineu (75km, 550m)

The longer ride option takes you to the big mountains and takes in Mallorca's longest climb! We head out via a relatively flat route down to Santa Maria, where we'll have a quick coffee before tackling our first climb of the day, the Col de Soller. This is a steady 5km climb with a gentle gradient, and the views back over the valley are spectacular. We then descend into the buzzing town of Soller for lunch before we take on Puig Major, the island's highest point. Our ride finishes with a stunning descent into Pollenca before returning back via the coast

 

The shorter option takes us through the backroads of Mallorca to the market town of Sineu - we'll have lunch at a cafe in the square, and also have the opportunity to test our legs on the track, which is located on the outskirts of the town.

Day 6: Formentor Lighthouse (65km, 900m)

Formentor is one of Mallorca's best known routes, with panoramic views of the coast to enjoy as the road twists and turns out towards the ligthouse. The views are simply breathtaking. The road starts with a 3km climb out of Puerto Pollenca before reaching a stunning lookout over the bay. Here you can catch your breath before continuing on down a few hairpins, through a tree-covered road out to the coast. The route then tracks along the edge of the cliffs before reaching the famous lighthouse at the end. 

 

We return the way we came and enjoy a final lunch in Port de Pollenca.
