2024 Testimonials

Having just completed the Raid Pyrenees, I have nothing but praise, respect and admiration for the entire team, making this the most memorable and enjoyable week of cycling in 20 years. Stuarts experience, character and advice, along with his superb team of guides and masseurs, along the best traffic free routes, between fantastic hotels on superb bikes , made for an absolutely outstanding adventure, second to none. There's nothing I could change or comment on to enhance the experience. The commeraderie between 13 previously unknowns to each other also added to make for a sensational trip. I am so grateful, and can't thank Stuart enough, I can only hope this trip is the beginning, not the end..Top job to all involved, it surpassed all expectations on every count, not just well worth the money, but the best £1500 I can remember spending...Thankyou.

Hi Stuart! I came back to Canada this past week from my month trip in Spain! Just wanted to tell you how much I loved my first 8 days of the month cycling with you guys in Majorque! The hotel, the food, the rides, everything was perfect!! English immersion was also great for me! We don’t get to speak English much here in Quebec City!! A special thanks to you Stuart for noticing there was something wrong with my bike on the very first day during the ride and making sure I had a different one ready for the next day! It was perfect!! Thank you for the great memories!!

Last month (April 2024), I spent a week cycling with Stuart Hall in Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca. It was my second trip following a great holiday in Palma on the south of the island in early 2023. I had a wonderful stay in a great hotel, did some fantastic well-planned rides led by excellent guides and met lots of friendly people. 100% recommended

Dear Jenny, Our group has just returned from Mallorca after our truly memorable trip last week. On behalf of all the members of our group, I thank you all at Stuart Hall Cycle Holidays for ensuring that all arrangements were made and that everything was as perfect as it could have been. We really are most grateful to you.
Nigel, Mallorca Spring 2024
Hi Stuart, It was a great holiday and I’m certainly planning to be back next year. The hotel and location were perfect. The staff in the hotel were really friendly and helpful; the rooms very clean and spacious and the food was fab. It’s the first time that I have been to Mallorca, although I have cycled in many countries. The island is perfect for cycling and in particular for training. I went out with the fast group led by Marcus and with Oliver as sweeper. Marcus went like a train on the front all day and it was certainly the training experience I was seeking. Next year I’ll organise a training camp for the training camp though! I heard one or two grumbles from people who got dropped from that group. At the end of the day, getting shelled out the back is something that can happen to us all sometimes, so I wouldn’t change a thing. We can always choose to join one of the other rides. Big thank you to you and your team for organising it really well. It was very straightforward. And a particularly big thank you to Marcus and Oliver for towing me around all week.
Andrew Mallorca Spring 2024
Hi Stuart. I’d like to thank you for a great holiday. We really enjoyed riding with Beth. She’s really strong on the bike.looking after the tail Enders. Great asset. Riding with Neil is like being with your big brother. Great fun. See you in October.
David, Mallorca Spring 2024
Dear Helen and Stuart, Just a short note to thank you and your team for the cycling holiday I’ve enjoyed this past 5-days. The Dream hirebike on which I rode nearly 500km was set up perfectly first time by Wayne. The gearing was spot on and it was well balanced on some fast descents. Being a short, fairly small woman I (and my shoulders/upper back!) really appreciated the narrower handlebars - unusual from my previous experience of road bike hire. The medium/steady rides were great and your guides knowledgeable and friendly. I also enjoyed meeting and riding with fellow guests Catherine, Gill and Jane. The hotel was good value and in a great location. Hope to be back out with you again within the next year!
Bess, Mallorca Spring 2024
Hi Stuart/Helen, Just returned from my third trip cycling with you and wanted to say thank you for another fab week. Didn’t cycle with you Stuart but did with Helen for a couple of rides including Wednesday when I wasn’t sure the rides would head out. Thanks Helen for choosing a safe route and stopping for coffee. I also wanted to recognise Bart and Ian who fixed my pxxtures (despite tyres being newish) - both are fab ride leaders for you and represent the organisation well. I’m sure I’ll be back again soon
Jane, Mallorca Spring 2024
Thanks to all, the week is a great time, the hotel is good and the fact that there are hire bikes on-site is a major benefit. The guides were great and I think there are more guides than when I came 6 years ago.
David, Mallorca Spring 2024

Hi Helen, Just like to thank you and your colleagues for great organisation and support over the last few days. Great hotel too. If you have a list for Mallorca 312 in 2025, could you please add my name to it? Many thanks, Phil
Phil, Mallorca 312 2024
I had a fantastic trip ! I really enjoyed the whole week - the cycling, the hotel and the people. Tiime with like minded folk was inspirational and a great talking point each evening at dinner. I went to Mallorca with the intension to give it a go and by day two I couldn't resist the challenge of progressing to the 'faster' group ! It was so well ran, the group were all supportive and encouraging and I ended the week cycling every day except one. Back home I am aiming to keep the mileage up - in between the rain ! Literally it hasn't stopped raining since I have been back home. Looking forward to heading out again, Malloraca or perhaps somewhere new. Thanks to Stuart and the team.
Sharon, Mallorca Spring 2024
Hi Helen, A massive thank you to you and the team for a truly wonderful five days- cycling 500k! I have been to the island before but this was a very special trip. A lovely mix of rides to choose from. The hotel catered very well for our needs and the Stuart hall team super friendly and helpful at all times, on and off the rides. it’s the small things that count like remembering your name and checking you had a good day! I definitely spent less time looking up where I was going and more time riding this trip! I can’t wait to come back to the island with you.

Can’t recommend Stuart Hall Cycling Holidays Enough………. I’ve been going to Stuart’s Majorca Training Camp for years and it just keeps getting better. The cycling has always been first class but the hotel accommodation keeps on improving. This March, 2024, I went with a group of 10, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Stuart and his highly experienced team, totally understand what’s important and cater from the inexperienced cyclist to the Pros. You don’t have to worry about a thing, they have thought of everything and nothing is too much trouble. From the minute you get to Palma airport you are looked after by the team. The hotel has great spa facilities all included, the food is excellent and many of the dishes are cooked to order. For a very small cost before travelling, you can upgrade to full board, definitely worth it, the whole package is exceptional value. I’m looking forward to my next trip as are several others in the group. Many thanks.
John, Mallorca Spring 2024
Dear Helen, dear Stuart, Thank you so much for having me for the past 10 days. It has been an incredible time, could not have wished for more – maybe only for some more watts in my legs ;). You are doing a wonderful job. I will definitely let my friends know about your cycling camps! Hope to see you again. Take care and kind regards, Nora
Nora, Mallorca Spring 2024
Thanks Stuart. It was my first ever cycling holidays and I am so glad I did it. Really well organised with multiple rides each day. Hotel was fantastic for a cycling holiday with spa. Great knowledgeable staff and support all through. Really enjoyed every bit of it. Would highly recommend it to anyone interested in cycling. Hope I can get home permission for another such week of fun with Stuart Hall cycling soon.
Vivek, Mallorca Spring 2024
I have just returned from a 2 week Stuart Hall Spring training camp. This was my 2nd Stu Hall camp and it again exceeded my expectations. The camps represent superb value for money. Hotel Playa Mar in particular was a superb base. Plentiful good food, superb apartment rooms and a very good wellness area. The rides were well tailored to different ability groups & the routes were all incredible. My 2 week camp has confirmed to me tgat Mallorca is hard to beat as a cycling destination. I spent 4 nights at the Palma base & then rode to Puerto Pollensa with my group & spent a further 10 days at the Playa Mar. I went in need of improving my fitness and Stu Halls team made sure I did with challenging rides at achievable paces. I will be going again & cannot reccomend the holidays more!
Mark, Mallorca Spring 2024
A big thank you to both of you and your amazing team, who made my first trip with Stuart Hall Cycling such a memorable experience. Everyone is so polite, friendly and helpful. The accommodation is beautiful, with stunning walks. Ian is in his element out on his bike each day. I look forward to seeing you both next year when Ian and I return for the Spring season. Wishing you every success for the rest of the season.
Ashley, Mallorca Spring 2024,
I recently brought our son to Mallorca for a few days of cycling with Stuart Hall and it was fantastic! Having previously only cycled around our neighbourhood in London on his hybrid bike with flat pedals, he clipped in and did a 30 km introductory ride on Day 1 and a 100km ride on Day 2. Our ride leaders looked after us well and we both loved it. We hired bikes as were only there for a short visit and they were great (full carbon, Specialized, perfect condition). The Hotel Occidental Playa de Palma was ideal for its location near the airport, beach and local restaurants. An added bonus that made it feel all-the-more authentic was that some of the Lidl-Trek riders were staying there as well. Great cycling for various levels, excellent company and a top trip all-around … highly recommend and will return again soon.
