Cycling Holidays - Mallorca Keep Fit

Itinerary

Day 1 - Travel and Fitting

We begin the tour with flights to Palma, Mallorca. After stepping off the plane into the autumnal sunshine, we will take a leisurely transfer to the Hotel Ivory Playa in Alcudia. Once settled in our amiable surroundings, we will be fitted with our high quality bikes before spending a balmy evening enjoying the region.

Day 2 – 45 miles one big climb and some smaller hills - not too strenuous

We start the day with a limbering up exercise taken by our trainer who will be with us for the duration of the long weekend.

After being fitted with our high quality bikes we will progress in a northern direction along the beautiful coastline to the delightful resort of Puerto Pollenca (which we will visit again). We turn west towards the old town of Pollenca where we can admire the centre and have our first coffee break of the day.

From there we start our ascent along the famous cornice road towards Soller. We climb until we reach the monastery at Lluc which is well worth a visit and our second coffee break. We then turn off downhill towards the village of Selve and then to Campanet where there are some interesting caves. Quiet and pretty mainly flat country lanes take us back to Alcudia for a late lunch

For those who wish to stretch themselves further we will have an optional ride of 20 miles each day at 5 pm.

Day 3 - 55 miles – some hills but again not too strenuous

After our warm up exercise we will transfer south to Manacor to begin our exploration of the South West of the Island.

This part of the island is fairly flat but very beautiful and we will spend time exploring the interesting coastal resorts of this part of the island.

During our cycle we will visit the attractive Porto Cristo which is renowned for the Caves of Drach, the largest cave system in Mallorca, formed by water from the sea being forced through the rock. We will take a good hour to visit the caves. It’s then not far to the long traffic free prom at Calla Millor after which we head north west to the fascinating town of Arta. If time permits we can enjoy a side trip to see the monastery which requires a good climb on a quiet narrow road where you are rewarded with stunning views of much of the island. Then it’s back through Arta and we reach the coast again at the small resort of Can Picafort and then just a few miles further to our hotel for an afternoon of relaxation

Day 4 - Max 47 miles – 2 to 3 challenging climbs –spectacular coastal scenery

We head back out to Puerto Pollenca and then comes the fabulous two challenging climbs along the dramatic Formentor Peninsular which culminates at the lighthouse. On our way back at the Formentor beach, you may prefer to take the ferry back to Puerto Pollenca, if it is running, whilst the brave will again climb over the top before descending to this delightful resort for lunch and an explore. After lunch we will have a leisurely cycle back to Alcudia by an alternative route.

Each night a buffet is served in the hotel and our trainer will give us some training hints for when we are at home.

Day 5 - Our Journey Home

Making the most of Mallorca's pleasures before lunch, we will return to the airport in the afternoon, sharing our collective experiences of this wonderful island.
