I’ve been to Mallorca with Stu several times over the last five years and had a good idea of what to expect from this holiday. Namely, a well organised trip with a group of like-minded individuals, all with a shared interest of all things bike.
We stayed in an authentic French country house on the Tour route from which we made our own forays into the Pyrenees and the cols that awaited us. In the end, we rode 6 of the Tour Pyrenean cols including the Col d’Aspin. If you’ve never experienced theTour caravan coming over the hill you haven’t lived!
Stu provides great and knowledgable guides that look after you on any of the rides you choose to take and at the end of the day you come home to good food and camaraderie at the wonderful base camp. Talk about gear ratios, past glories, or just nonsense, over a local beer or two.
Everything is looked after for you; flights, transfers,accommodation.
A great way to see, and ride, the Pyrenean stages of theTour.
I really appreciated the small groups we cycled in over the island and the local knowledge of routes etc was brilliant. On my last day they even changed the route plan so that I could achieve another climb ride which the steady group don’t usually do. The rental bike I had was excellent as well. Have been telling all my friends what a great time we had – down to the friendliness of the airport transfer and everything.
Top marks Stuart Hall.
We very much hope to reacquaint ourselves with Stuart Hall cycling in Mallorca next year and hope you will keep us informed of any early bird offers etc.
It’s sad being back to the cold sun-restricted hours which limit cycle time, without the coffee, orange and almond cake stops.
We hope you are all keeping well; you have given us many happy memories and opened our eyes to a new future for cycle training.
Best wishes and happy riding til the next time!
