Majorca 2019: Road Cycling 

Join us on this multi day cycling trip to Majorca. We are leading a series of day rides starting from Port de Pollenca which you can plan your own private holiday around.

The core group of event leaders will be around from 11th May through to 18th May, but the length of your trip and which rides you attend is up to you - you could just come for a long weekend. We are staying independently in the Port de Pollenca area at a variety of different hotels and apartments (there is no recommended place to stay). 

You can hire bikes easily in Port de Pollenca although it is recommended to book well in advance. 

Sign up for the events you want and if you want we'll put you in touch with the group so that you can meet us once you arrive. Any questions, please send the event leader a direct message.

Itinerary and event links to sign up:

11th May - arrive, collect bike (suggested)

12th May - 1 Sa Calobra (Hard or Moderate)

13th May - 2 Formentor (Moderate)

14th May - REST DAY (eg Ferrocarril de Sóller or Palma)

15th May - 3 Port de Soller (Very Hard)

16th May - 4 Santuaris (Hard or Moderate)

17th May - ad hoc, return bike

18th May - depart

The aim is for most day rides to have two difficulties with two groups and two leaders, splitting on the day as required.

This ride

On this ride, we ride the mountainous road to Port de Soller, and return via the Col de Soller. This is a very hard day in the saddle so only sign up if you are sure it's manageable after Sa Calobra. If you've been on our Alps trip this is similar in terms of climbing. Subject to group discussion we might alter this ride to a different route on the day. You can drop out by taking the train from Marratxi to Sa Pobla then riding back to P. de Pollenca, though it will not be time efficient to do so. We will try to get those not riding to offer a 'broom wagon' service with the cars!
