The Andy Cook Mallorca Spring Bike Camp enjoyed some of the best weather and riding ever.
Mallorca is always a haven for early season fabulous riding but this year we enjoyed temperatures in the twenties every day and many of the roads have been upgraded with super smooth tarmac as if they knew we were coming. This remains one of the best Bike Camps in Mallorca according to our clients.
A big thank you goes out to HIGH5 for keeping us fuelled, Continental for keeping the rubber to the tarmac, MYPOWER Infocrank for the power tips, and all the staff at Club Pollentia Resort for their amazing hospitality. Not forgetting our ride leaders, mechanics and Kirsty in the van. Most of all to our riders who rode safely and had fun for the whole two weeks.
- Over 90 riders during the 2 weeks
- 40% of riders were women
- Groups for national record holders through to absolute beginners
- Riders from as far away as America, South Africa, Sweden and Canada
- 90 bikes transferred safely
- 56,500 miles ridden
- 25 punctures repaired
- 2,800 HIGH5 gels consumed
and no crashes… thanks for the safe riding folks.
As always we had a huge range of rider abilities and objectives but our Bike Camps are known for being inclusive not exclusive. You only have to love riding a bike in fantastic scenery to enjoy the two weeks in Mallorca. Our ride leaders set the perfect pace for whichever group they are looking after and each day has it’s own challenges from the mountain rides, long rides to recovery rides with plenty of cafe stops. We also throw in the odd rest day as well.

PortBlue Club Pollentia Resort & Spa is a 4 star Hotel uniquely situated between the Port Pollença bay and the S’Albufereta Natural Park.
The staff have known us for over 20 years and give us access to their best facilities on site. The food is first-class and the new Spa which opened this year proved popular with many of our group on rest days and late afternoons.
The close proximity to the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range and a variety of smooth cycling routes makes the hotel the best option for cyclists visiting Majorca.
