TOUR COMPLETEDFollowing the success of two holidays to Mallorca we are running a third trip from 19th to 29th April 2024 based in Port Pollensa. This provides the perfect location for cycling, with a variety of terrain including the challenging Tramantana mountains. Members will make their own bookings based on a Jet2 package which is very flexible with Birmingham flights. We will offer easier 50-70km and harder 80-120km rides each day. We also plan to arrange transport to take us with our bikes to locations to enjoy a linear ride back. In addition to the cycling there will also be Walking options from the hotel and these usually have an opportunity to swim and bird watching. We also plan to offer an option for a day’s sailing which was very popular last year. For those who don't want to cycle there are endless sightseeing options in Mallorca which can generally be reached using the excellent public bus services The holiday offers much more than cycling and eating. The sea has been warm for swimming after cycling, and we have enjoyed room parties and music in a number of hotels nearby in the evenings2024 Mallorca Info Pack
