Our hugely popular October cycling camp is back for 2017! We will be based at the Playa Mar and Mar Senses, luxury spa aparthotels in Puerto Pollensa, on the north east tip of Mallorca.
The October cycling camp is an ideal opportunity to wind down on some well surfaced, quiet roads in a temperate climate with some old and new friends before the winter sets in and it’s back to thermal gloves and overshoes.
So why not come and join us? Stay for the entire month or just come for a long weekend – we can cater to whatever suits you.
STOP PRESS… Female pro-cyclists to lead women’s rides this October!!
Tara Gins and Sarah Inghelbrecht, two Belgian professional Pro Tour riders who race for Lares–Waowdeals, will be in Mallorca with Stuart Hall Cycling from 10th to 20th October.
They will take out women-only rides with the focus on helping improve cycling skills and technique. Open to all female riders – you don’t need to be a pro yourself to take part!
Support provided for Master’s Tour of Mallorca, 16-20th October
And for the men, for £40 we will provide support and transport to the Master’s Tour of Mallorca, and the first 20 to book with us with get a free jersey! Just book online and mention you are doing the event.
Cyclists need to be aged 30 or over and have a UCI racing licence. There are four stages, including one time trial, one mountain stage and two flat stages.
*Please note that flight arrivals scheduled to land after midnight and flight departures scheduled to leave before 08:00 will incur an £80 surcharge (per person, per transfer) unless we are able to use the national shuttle service for the transfer. Where the shuttle is a possibility, we will provide you with the option to choose which you prefer on booking. For delayed flight arrivals, provided your flight is scheduled to land before midnight, there will be no extra charge.
The Playa Mar and Mar Senses are aparthotels which means that the rooms are small apartments – each has a bedroom with twin beds, a bathroom, small kitchenette (including sink, microwave, kettle, fridge and hob) and living room with a sofa-bed. It is therefore possible for up to 3 or 4 people to share an apartment, and if two people share, they have the option of sleeping in separate rooms.
Our fleet of hire bikes has been really popular this year and will be available again for the October camp, at some great prices. For more information on our bikes, and to book, please see the bike hire page.
Our October camp is more relaxed than those earlier in the year, with the focus on winding down and enjoying riding your bike in the sunshine, drinking good coffee, eating nice cakes, and charging up your tan for the winter. It’s more of a cycling holiday than a training camp. We typically have three groups each day to cater to all abilities. All rides have at least one, and often two, cafe stops.
