A memorable cycling holiday doesn’t have to be defined only by the numbers. Good times matter, whether it is because the route to the coffee and cake stop came at just the right time and took in some great scenery or because you decided to race each other for part of it for the sheer joy of being able to do so. Cycling holidays are full of their own rewards: a little more time allows for a greater appreciation of the dramatic scenery, the flora and fauna of the Island. You might chose to follow the Ruta de Vi, wine-tasting your way through the vineyards between us and Sta. Maria in the west, stopping and sampling at the various Can’s along the route.

Our Cycle Explore holidays & breaks stays are intended to have a more moderate pace, aimed at exploring the Island, its many routes, taking in the views and the scenery as you whizz past. The aim is to make the most of your time with us on the bike; they feature bespoke routes along smooth open roads, fabulous terrain, breath-taking views and ascents. We do cater for cyclists wanting something in addition to better performance: good coffee, wine, lunch… along scenic routes all over the Island.  Mallorca has invested heavily in dedicated cycle routes, taking in some of the most spectacular destinations on the Island.
