Service back to top

These camps give you the opportunity to ride in groups of like minded people led by qualified cycling coaches and experienced group leaders under the guidance of multiple Commonwealth games cycling medalist Alastair Irvine. Group rides, whether training based or more relaxed, are planned, organised and structured to make the most of your cycling time. A week with us will help you add significant mileage to an existing training plan. Cycling in Mallorca provides the ideal training camp destination or good times touring on the bike.

Many people ride with us in the spring and autumn who also want to escape the damp and frozen UK winter. December and January training camps provide the opportunity to ride in an organised and structured environment and gain base conditioning. In essence we will replicate what the many pro teams also do out in Mallorca using the empty roads over the winter period. The pros are out on the island for several weeks in December and January building their core and a strong base before adding tempo and speed work ahead of a racing season. We will be staying in a hotel practically next door to Team Sky, hopefully we’ll “look” as nearly impressive although likely travelling somewhat slower!”

OUR RIDES

Performance

Fast paced riding developing disciplined and coordinated close group riding skills. Typically 130km to 160km-plus days using all the variable terrain types and climbs Mallorca offers. A structured program that builds strength and speed.

The performance group is orientated toward those riders with sporting aspirations, it is facilitated to be progressive and disciplined developing core cycling fitness at training a strong endurance base. Core conditioning is the physical objective and the benefit of Mallorca’s roads ensures this core conditioning will be attained with a speed element that will raise the base riding speed of those within the group.

The group will be structured and co-ordinated to gain positive development from utilising group riding. Skill development using pace line formations, pace judgement and close formation bike handling will make these groups challenging and rewarding with emphasis on the protocol and dynamics of organised cycling.

Using the variety of Mallorca’s terrain and road network the progression of the group will introduce various challenges over the duration of your stay to ensure each day is varied and demanding.

If you are a racing cyclist, time trialist, triathlete or perhaps seeking high performances at sportive events, this is the group to consider, the group will be facilitated so as everyone is inclusive and contributing, this is about team riding where everyone has a role to play, the opportunity to be part of a co-ordinated team ride, how the professionals ride, the chance for a fantastic and challenging cycling experience.

Sportive

Tranquil country lanes leading to beautiful rural villages. From orange groves to vineyards and hidden valleys to mountain top monasteries. Moderate paced sportive group riding typically covering 80 to 110km per day depending on terrain and coffee/lunch stop options.

The sportive group is the iconic group to cycle in, a degree of on bike fitness is required before you arrive in Mallorca, it is physically challenging and will take on some hill climbs and descents but is primarily about the enjoyment of cycling through the countryside of Majorca.

This is the group that sits down to dinner with all the stories to tell of the places they’ve discovered and the experiences they’ve had.

The group is structured and co-ordinated to ensure efficient cycling with the objective of going to places of interest, all sharing the pace and riding as an organised and coordinated sporting group.

Moving in unison to assist each other to get to a place ensures skill development and after your stay, fitness will be developed allowing you to progress onto bigger sportive challenges.

This is discovering the unknown Mallorca, unexpected locations, tranquil country roads, beautiful rural villages, scenic climbs and local cuisine. Days that include rolling roads, hill climbs, orange groves and vineyards, stunning turquoise coves to rocky headlands, Mallorca has it all and its waiting for you to see it, smell it and taste it with this sportive group.

Sportive Endurance

A regulated even paced riding group for those looking to build stamina for sportive events and endurance charity rides. Coordinated group riding that is structured to develop fitness and comfort over long distances. Taking in some of Mallorca’s most scenic climbs and rolling countryside.

The Sportive Endurance group is specifically designed for anyone looking to build endurance stamina in a concentrated environment with the objective of completing challenging sportives or endurance charity rides.

The pleasure from sportive or charity challenges is being able to complete them in comfort and with a fitness that allows you to enjoy the event and the social ambiance associated with such events. It’s about having the confidence in your fitness and skill to have fun on the bike.

Efficiency of cycling is fundamental and so each daily ride will be structured and co-ordinated to gain from the benefits of group riding and shared pace setting, learning the dynamics and protocols of group cycling technique.

Your stay will increase your fitness and the time cycling will increase your comfort threshold.

Skills will be developed to allow close proximity riding in a group with relaxation and comfort. The pace will be regulated and steady so as to develop core strength and permit recovery, each ride thus increasing core conditioning to give a solid foundation of fitness to allow objectives to be comfortably attained.

A social element is fundamental to this mainstream element of cycling and so routes will visit some of Mallorca’s most beautiful towns for coffee and lunch whilst also incorporating the varied beautiful countryside and scenic climbs.

This is the group that focuses on the majority of cyclists involved in the sport, because cycling tends to become addictive, you either have been or you most likely will be cycling more frequently in the future, with friends or may be in a club.

The benefits gained in the Sportive Endurance group will positively enhance all your future cycling and make objectives more attainable.

Touring

The Touring Group rides at a more relaxed pace, the wonderful views and excellent coffee stops being more important than a high average speed. We find quiet roads with breathtaking scenery, passing through beautiful Mallorcan villages, sometimes riding next to the sea, sometimes into the mountains. We have the time to really appreciate the Mallorcan countryside, to chat and get to know other riders in the group, even the time to stop and take a photograph. Our guided rides vary in length from 50 kms to 80 kms for riders who enjoy getting on their bikes and exploring parts of the island that most tourists never discover. The Touring cycling group is ideal for those that enjoy adventures and using the bike as a means to visit places of interest or if you are new to road cycling and want an introduction to spending the best part of the day on two wheels.

Join us, no matter your ability, it’s always fun!
