Based at our villa near the Tramuntana mountains, our Ride and Recharge trip is designed to provide the perfect mix of unforgetable riding and relaxation. You’ll discover Mallorca’s finest roads on an itinerary that suits you, then recover while enjoying all the comforts you’d expect from a family-run luxury villa.
Palma de Mallorca
Each day starts with breakfast and a rider briefing – your chance to ensure you get what you want from the day ahead. Our suggested routes combine the island’s breathtaking scenery with its world-renowned roads so you can explore the best that Mallorca has to offer. Simply decide where you want to ride and we’ll do the rest. Tasteful rooms with private balconies overlooking our terraced garden offer the ideal setting for unwinding after a day on the bike. Then, you’ll enjoy access to our pool, in-house sports therapy when you need it, and regional wine and home-cooked food.
BIKES & CLOTHING
We have a small fleet of CEEPO road bikes available for hire that we maintain in-house, with a range of sizes available. Please let us know your preferences and we can prepare the bike for your arrival. Alternatively, we can help you to arrange your own bike hire on the island. We also have our own range of exclusively designed Milltag cycling clothing available to guests at a special price, including jerseys, bibs, shorts and gilets.
After unpacking and readying your bike, we’ll enjoy a light lunch before a spin up Puig de Santa Magdalena to loosen the legs, and take in the magnificent views of the island from its summit.
Our first full day of riding takes us to the training grounds of the pros – Pollensa and Alcudia. We’ll climb the Mirador Es Colomer before reaching the iconic descent to the lighthouse at Cap Formentor. On our return to the villa, we’ll climb to the Talaia d’Albercutx tower.
After riding past the Santuari de Lluc monastery on the prettiest climb on the island, Coll de Sa Batalla, we’ll head to the world-famous Port de Sa Calobra to take on one of cycling’s classic ascents.
We’ll ride locally or further afield depending on your departure time. Because of our villa’s position, many of the island’s iconic riding destinations are accessible right from the doorstep.
“Sarah’s cooking was fantastic. A huge bowl of puttanesca pasta arrived which I happily wolfed down, only to discover that was just the starter. Roast Porcetta followed and then a delicious crumble. Just what you need after a hard day’s cycling, and all washed down with plenty of good cerveza and vino!”
“I had a really bad back before the trip. After a few long, hard rides in Mallorca my back was giving me some real grief. Sarah (and David) were able to show me some stretches and exercises to do, which really helped with controlling the pain”
“The accommodation was great. I was in the library (North Room), which has a fantastic ensuite bathroom and plenty of cycling books to dip into at night”
I’m so glad we stayed with David and Sarah at their villa for our first cycling holiday in Mallorca. The villa is perfectly located with mountains in one direction and flatlands in the other. I’m a novice road cyclist, Mike is not, so we alternated between gentle days out together in the gorgeous scenery of the flatlands with long lunch stops in picturesque villages, and mountain climbing days for Mike guided by David. Sarah and David really couldn’t have been more welcoming, and between Sarah’s cooking and the excellent local restaurants, we were very well fed all week too. I also highly recommend a massage from Sarah too, to get those legs working again ready for another day on the bike.
Sarah gives the most wonderful individualised sports massage. She carefully unraveled my neck and shoulders with skill, intuition and talent and it was such a highlight of the holiday to have this service offered on top of everything else.
As a fully qualified personal trainer, David was able to do postural and biomechanical assessments and give advice on exercises and stretches and improve cycling and running technique. They really have thought of everything!!
Lots of delicious food, fresh lemons and oranges off the tree in the front garden, great company, wonderful villa and gardens. Walking, running and yoga in the beautiful surroundings! Can’t wait to go back!! Strongly recommended for Mallorca holidays for supported cycling, great food and lots of R&R. Thanks so much Sarah and David. Feeling rested and renewed and well cared for!
