Cycling Tour Information

How fit do I need to be?

On your arrival at the hotel we like to meet all our guests and welcome you personally to Velo Club Europe. Once you have settled in to your accommodation we then like to have a brief one to one meeting to ascertain your fitness levels and your aims and objectives for the time you will be spending with us.On the morning of every ride there will be a briefing, so everyone is aware of the day ahead. This also gives yourself the chance to ask any questions.

I’m worried about being left behind!

We never leave anyone behind, ever! On the daily briefing we make sure you are in the correct group for you to get the most out of your time with us, remember Velo Club Europe’s mission statement “enjoy not endure”.

“All the guys at Velo Club Europe are extremely friendly, approachable and knowledgeable about the area. The rides were tailor made for us to match our goals, abilities and what we wanted out of the trip.” Mandy, Cheshire. Read more cycling reviews.

Do I have to ride everyday?

No, it is your holiday, so you can ride as little or as often as you like. Most of our guests take at least one day off to take in some other sites or activites that the island has to offer.

How long are the rides?

Distances range from 50 km and 130 km, depending which group you ride with. Rides depart between 9am and 10am and usually return late lunch, early afternoon.

“A great balance between training camp and holiday – very well organised, stunning rides and plenty of sunshine!” Andrew, Guildford. Read more cycling reviews.

Cycling Essentials

What cycling clothing should I bring ?

Majorca or Mallorca enjoys on average of over 300 days of sunshine every year, even so you should be prepared for the very occasional wet day. In addition to this, the temperature in the mountains can be a few degrees cooler, so with that in mind we recommend that in addition to your normal fair weather riding kit, all riders bring arm and leg warmers, gilet and rain jacket.

Do I bring my own bike or hire one?

Many riders bring their own bikes, but we see more riders hiring good quality road bikes locally saving you the hassle and worry of transporting your own pride and joy. If you decide to hire a bike we can recommend various dealers, but with this in mind you should book well in advance.

Upon arrival at the hotel we were met and greeted by Andrew Alexander who ensured everything was set up for us and even took us the bike hire venue to pick up the bikes for the week.” Shaun, Kent. Read more cycling reviews.

What travel insurance do I need?

Travel insurance is essential, there are numerous companies who will provide cover for many different sports activities. Another must have is a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which is available for UK and European residents.

Can I bring my partner?

Of course you can, Velo Club Europe individually picks its accommodation so that everyone has a comfortable stay.
