Pure Cycling Fun Ride Eat Sleep - Repeat
Spring and Fall Riding Camp in 2024
Our MajorcaCycling Riding Camps will be based in the South of the island, to be precise: Playa de Palma. During my last five visits to Majorca (including the 2021 MajorcaCycling Fall Riding Camp, and 2022 and 2023 MajorcaCycling Spring Riding Camp, I used this location as my base. So, this base has been tested by me, and I deem it as a good, if not superior, alternative to the North coast. This new location allows us to explore other parts of the island, which are not easily accessible from our previous location. In addition, from here you have easy access to Palma de Mallorca, the cosmopolitan capital of Majorca, and it is only a short drive from the airport.
The routes are very versatile; one day you ride east and it is mostly flat (unless you opt for the various out and back climbs dotted around the island); the next day you ride west, and it is hilly and mountainous - and always on different routes. Starting at the hotel, in no time you are on quiet country roads. If you have been based in the Alcudia area, by moving your base to Playa de Palma you are basically on a different island.
We will be staying at the Hipotels Gran Playa de Palma **** The newest and most modern hotel in Playa de Palma. I stayed there in April 2021 for the first time and I was excited, and during subsequent MajorcaCycling Riding Camps my guests were very happy with the hotel.
