2017 Testimonials

Dear Stuart

Many thanks for your follow-up email re our Cycling Holiday in October – we were so impressed in April we returned.

We had an excellent time which was the consensus of all in our group. In April we stayed in the Mar Senses & this time the Playa de Mar & we were very pleased with the accommodation (although ours was a little tired); the food, was excellent and the staff were pleasant & helpful.

Again there was a good range of rides & your leaders were excellent – in fact I have already encouraged two other local clubs I ride with to consider booking with you for their oversees tours. Lorraine, my wife, was particularly pleased with Ivor (after a chat to Helen) who took her, and another woman, who had been doing the steady rides with Sam, on a ‘steady’ Orient ride which they otherwise would not have considered. This was a great highlight for them.

We will certainly give very positive feedback on your FB page & on your website.

Again – many thanks for the follow-up & the great service you, and your team provide, and we hope to be with you again in the future.

Regards – John & Lorraine

We have now been home for over a week after having had a great ten days cycling in Majorca with Stuart Hall cycling.

The hotel, the Playa Mar is very good. The food is excellent and nothing could be too much trouble for the staff. The accommodation is comfortable though the apartments that haven’t yet been refurbished have quite tired bathrooms and kitchen areas. We sat in the pool area quite a lot this trip and that was well maintained.

There was a good variety of rides each day with a choice of hills and flat rides and varying distances. The ride leaders were excellent as usual though I personally don’t like being part of a large group on the small lanes near P. Pollensa. It was always more comfortable and felt safer being part of a smaller group. I appreciated and benefitted from some tips on technique given by ride leaders.

Kevin was lucky to be present when there was the chance of doing the lap of the island with some of the ride leaders and other clients. He really enjoyed the experience and benefitted from the support and company of the other riders.

I would ( and do) recommend the experience to other riders.

We hope to be there again next year!

What a super day out on the bikes it was, the 2 pros did ok really, we backed it off for them when required… haha… yeah right… thanks to Stuart for organising chatting to the girls gave a real interesting insight into ladies pro-cycling.

Just to say had a fab time cycling out with Sam giving me such encouragement and confidence to be out there riding, meeting some lovely people and making new friends. Got some good miles in and even managed Sa calobra. Great experience. Thank you, Wendy

Hi Stuart
Thank you for another great holiday. Everything about it was good, the hotel was excellent as usual and the staff were really friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Your leaders were really friendly and helpful, especially Andy and Sean who sorted the bikes. It was nice to be greeted by Jennifer, much appreciated. Also thanks to Sam and Ev who we have got to know quite well “similar age group”. The weather was good too.
Look forward to April. Have a good winter.
Regards

Hi Everyone at Stuart Hall,

Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed the holiday, even though it’s taken me a week to recover!​ I rode most days with one of the medium pace groups which seemed to suit my ability and requirements. After 3 fairly long rides I dropped down to Sam’s ride for 1 day and appreciated the slightly easier pace. All the leaders were very helpful and road knowledge was excellent. I have been going to Mallorca for the last 10 years and they still managed to find lots of lanes I hadn’t come across.
The hotel was very good with an excellent choice of food, although taking the bike through the hotel to the room was something new as all other hotels I’ve stayed at have had secure and equipped underground garages. I wondered how non cycling guests viewed this. All in all, I thought it very well organised and the transfers were very smooth.
I’m not sure if you have contacted my room mate, Michael, but if not, I know that he would have similar comments. If our ageing bodies hold up until next October, I’m sure you’ll be seeing us again.

Many thanks for a great holiday.
Regards,
John.

John, Mallorca Oct 2017
Thanks Stuart for an awesome extended week of cycling. Got exactly what I wanted, lots of miles, good food, great company (even if I kept to myself a bit), and rekindling the legs. All the best. Steve

Hi Stuart,
Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our recent three day cycling trip. We stayed in the gorgeous Mar Senses Hotel, Puerto Pollensa. The cycling was brilliant and Andy Capper and Dave Maughan looked after us superbly as always.
It’s a great time of year to visit and it could become a regular trip
Looking forward to April.
Thanks,
Barbara

I just completed the Raid Pyrenees with Stuart Hall Cycling. This was Epic, with a capital ‘E’. Yes, no doubt, other tour companies can get you from Hendaye to Cerbere but not likely on the secondary roads, by-ways, lanes, and obscure Cols that only Stuart manages to discover. If you want a memorable adventure and an experience of a life-time, then, Stuart Hall’s Raid Pyrenees will deliver in spades. This is no easy ride; and requires one to be in peak aerobic condition, with legs of steel, a resolute mind, and a willing spirit. It’s just fabulous, and a worthy goal for any serious cyclist. It’s six days of concentrated effort; you’ll be tired, yes, but you won’t stop smiling.

Hi Jenny,
Just a quick note to say that we had a brilliant week with Stuart in Mallorca and really enjoyed the cycling. Please pass on our thanks to him and the team for making it such a positive experience. We will definitely be back!

Can I also say how happy we were with the upgrade to the Mar Senses hotel – what a lovely place! We thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Thanks very much!

Best regards,
Sue

Sue, Mallorca Spring 2017
Thank you Stuart Hall and Co for making my 4th time with you guys fab as always. I forgive you Stuart for tricking us into that 2nd climb on my last day 😂 will def make another booking soon. Wish I was still there 👍👍x
Linda, Mallorca Spring 2017
The Mallorca 312 sportive was an unforgettable experience. Stuart arranged an early morning breakfast for the 312 riders followed by a transfer right to the start line. This meant we didn’t need to hang about on a chilly morning and the event got off to the perfect start.

And what an event! Well-marshalled, great organisation and loads of cheering support along the way. The well-stocked food stops meant I arrived back with the energy bars I set out with still in my pockets and the standard of riding was perhaps the best I have experienced in any sportive. Riding through a world heritage centre on silky-smooth closed roads in cycling paradise. What’s not to like?

Well, admittedly there’s the monstrous distance – 194 miles and more than 5,000 metres of climbing – but thankfully latching onto a well-organised group helped get me over the line in a decent time and I didn’t have to make use of the out-of-hours hotel buffet Stuart had arranged for us in case of a late finish. Instead there was time for a short jaunt to the famous cyclist’s haunt Tolos, where the Garmin ticked over 200 miles and the draft Estrella provided the perfect recovery aid!

Cheers – here’s to the next one!

John, Mallorca 312 Spring 2017
Stuart,

Just a note of thanks from our group of cyclists and non-cyclists for a beautiful few days at your cycling camp. For most it was the first taste of what is on offer in the way of cycling and relaxation in Majorca, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the routes. We were all really impressed with the Playa Mar, you have a terrific base there with great facilities and quietness when you need it!

Some are already planning for 2018.
Best wishes,
Mike

Mike, Mallorca Spring 2017
Hi Jenny, please can you send my best regards to Stuart and all his little helpers for my wonderful weeks cycling in Majorca two weeks ago. The weather was perfect and the routes were varied and spectacular. It was good to meet so many really nice people and will be looking to book another trip in the future. Best regards to all at Stuart hall cycling. Best regards, Andrew
Andrew, Mallorca Spring 2017
Thanks Stuart Hall Cycling for a super bike and an absolutely brilliant week of cycling, definitely see you next year and maybe again in October if the duchess allows… Damien.
Damien, Mallorca Spring 2017
Just a quick note to say thanks for a great week’s cycling, bike was excellent, your rides and team leaders were all really great, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, even if I still can’t climb to save myself. Please convey my thanks to Sam, Rob, Gary and John. Hope to see you in October, there are still a few rides I didn’t get to do.
Rod, Mallorca Spring 2017
From being picked up promptly at Palma for the transfer by Ivan, to the welcome at the hotel by Ev, the bikes all ready for us to pick up, then the choice of rides each day. Everything ran like clockwork, which is brilliant news for newbies like us!

Many thanks to Stuart Hall Cycling for making our first visit to Mallorca one to remember. We both enjoyed the variety of rides and benefitted from the wealth of knowledge that each ride leader has. Everyone was so friendly and efficient, so many thanks to Andy, Ben, Dave, Gary, Rob, Sam and of course Helen. (The names are alphabetical so no preference is shown! We also sincerely hope we haven’t missed anyone out as it isn’t intentional).

Sa Colobra and Orient are now ticked off my bucket list, expect us for a few more visits to complete the rest!

Hope to see you all very soon!

Karen & David, Mallorca Spring 2017
Just to thank you all at Stuart Hall Cycling for making my first time with yourselves cycling such a great time. The rides were good, and sociable, with some great cafe stops. I will be putting in a return visit in my diary for next year. Thanks.
Linda, Sam & Simon, Mallorca Spring 2017
I just wanted to say thank you for a great week. I didn’t do any of the group rides after I came off and bust my shoulder the week before I came out but I loved the fact that all the leaders were still asking how my rides were going, it really made me feel part of the bigger group. Garry even offered to check that I’d put my bike together again safely which was a welcome gesture! I thought advertising the rides the night before was brilliant and would definitely benefit me on future trips.
Hannah, Mallorca Spring 2017
Amazing week of cycling with 370 miles done in 6 days. I also met so many lovely people. Home to real life tomorrow and many thanks to all at Stuart Hall cycling for the best week yet. Great cycles, great food and super great company. Thanks Stuart Hall – I will be back soon.
Anne, Mallorca Spring 2017
Thanks for bike loan and kit Stuart you all went out of your way to give a ride I was clearly not geared up for / it made my family holiday one to remember with your teams help – I will be out next year with my team & do the week with a bit of luck !!! 🚴🏻

Big thank you to Stuart and all his guides and helpers fantastic 10 days riding. Back to normal now cutting grass and cold winds. Andrew
Andrew, Mallorca Spring 2017
What a week… big thanks to Stuart Hall, little Leg lil’ring Garry Cannondale and of course, Capt John Watson for smashing us up every Col and down each decent like a boss.

Highlight for me was Selva Gorge climb, pushing on down the decent from Sa Calabra into Pollenca trying to keep away from James McPherson, and those arm warmers.

Greeners & Darren was here… thanks Nomads. You all rock. Paul

Paul, Mallorca Spring 2017

Thanks Stuart Hall for an amazing few days cycling. Didn’t feel too broken after being out on a ride led by you! Really appreciated all the advice. Lovely to see the kids getting bigger too. See you next year, hopefully with even more Hervelos in tow
Dawn, Mallorca Spring 2017
As an early birthday present my generous other half gifted me an amazing week cycling with Stuart Hall Cycling in Mallorca last week. Stuart had donated the week to a New Stepping Stones nursery fundraiser. All deserve a mention! I wanted to say that this was an amazing experience with excellent accommodation, food and some very lovely people. The cycling was beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in getting out on their bike for a few days especially if they are trying to get back some fitness after winter. Tom

Hi Stuart
Back home now, just wanted to say thanks for great service. In the past my husband has found transfers the most stressful as always seemed to have issues whoever we used. This is the second time we have used yourselves and we would now never use any other transfer service in Majorca. The ease of booking, reasonable cost and clear instructions for meeting were exceptional. We would both particularly like to praise the driver who picked us up for both transfers, he was professional, polite, prompt and very friendly and courteous-would appreciate if you pass this feedback onto him.
Thanks Again
Emma and Andy

Hi Stuart.
I am sat in the plane home with a smile on my face after another fantastic week.
Thanks to you, all those who lead rides and those behind the scenes.
Each year I come little things change. They are always for the better but the core elements remain intact. Your trips are low key, relaxed and always about riding bikes. You make me and the others I talk to feel valued.
The six months until I return will hopefully fly by.
Kind regards.
Jonathan
Jonathan, Mallorca Spring 2017
Stu, these boys are… a pleasure to be with!! It’s great you’ve found people of the same mindset as yourself.

Three days spent with the guys and other repeat clients, have made the short break invaluable. Professional, knowledgeable, and inclusive are words that spring to mind. In short Andy, Ben and Garry are top guys who know their riding, and go that “Extra Mile” to deliver a Fantastic, Memorable, Experience.

Thanks for another great time.
Cheers Chris
