Would you like to be a ride leader?
We are looking for guides to join our fun, hard-working and dedicated team in Mallorca.
Do you have bundles of energy and enthusiasm to share with customers, are you an avid cyclist and would you leap at the chance to lead rides for a living?
If the answer to all those questions is “yes”, you could be the person we are looking for!
We need hard-working, enthusiastic ride leaders to guide customers across Mallorca, leading road cyclists on rides of between 50km and 160km a day.
We are looking for ride leaders to guide rides of all speeds, so you don’t need to be a racing whippet, but you do need to be able to ride all day for multiple days in a row.
To work for Stuart Hall Cycling you must have EU citizenship or Spanish residency or the right to work in Europe / Spain.
You will also be:
- A keen and experienced cyclist
- Professional and a good people person
- Fun and enthusiastic
- Loyal and hard working
- Capable of fixing basic bike mechanicals
A day in the life of a Stuart Hall Cycling guide:
- 08:00: Join customers for breakfast, answer any questions and be friendly and sociable
- 09:30: Meet outside the hotel for the day’s ride, discuss the routes with the customers and help with any bike mechanicals or queries. Set off for the day after the ride safety briefing. The ride length and difficulty will vary depend on the aims and abilities of the cyclists in your group. It usually involves a café stop for lunch.
- 16:00: Return to the hotel, check the schedule for the following day and help wash and set up the hire bikes.
- 19:00: Dinner with the customers, followed by drinks in a local bar.
What are the benefits of working as a guide?
Number one is that you get to do a job you love! If cycling is your passion, this may well be your dream job! Mallorca is an incredible place for road cycling, with spectacular countryside and beautiful, quiet roads.
We provide a competitive salary, accommodation in a 4* Spa hotel, your meals and your bike. Full training will be provided in Mallorca.
Who is an average guide?
The quick answer to that is that there isn’t one! Our guides vary in age from 20 to 80, we have male and female guides, and with backgrounds as diverse as former bankers, to professional cyclists, to postal workers and joiners. There really is no “typical” guide. All are united by a love of cycling and an enthusiasm to share this with the customers.
We are also hiring experienced bike mechanics
We are actively recruiting for an experienced bike mechanic to be responsible for servicing our fleet of hire bikes. The successful individual must have several years of experience repairing and maintaining road bikes, be customer focused and able to work independently.
How to apply?
Please explain why you would make a good guide, describe any relevant experience and provide details of your EU residency/citizenship.
