Giant-Taiwan Mallorca 312 – the Andy Cook Cycling Experience


Giant-Taiwan Mallorca 312 – the Andy Cook Cycling Experience

In April, Andy Cook Cycling took an exclusive group of 20 riders to Mallorca, on a trip based around the legendary Mallorca 312.

The Mallorca 312 is a closed road, mass participation event offering riders the chance to ride either 167km, 225km or 312km around the entire island. 8000 people took part in the ride this year, with famous participants including Alberto Contador,Miguel Indurain, Sean Kelly, Oscar Freire, Oscar Pereiro and Ivan Basso. Since 2010, this Gran Fondo has covered a total of 2,115,200 kilometres – the equivalent of the Mallorca 312’s peloton riding around the world 52 times. It’s truly one of the best events of its kind, and the atmosphere on the island over the whole weekend is very special. 

Andy Cook Cycling provided a safe and reassuring team of staff to guide participants through the melee of the registration village, took them on the perfect warm-up rides, and looked after them at the fantastic Club Pollentia Resort and Spa – where the clients received the usual special attention and welcome exclusive to Andy Cook Cycling. 

All the Andy Cook Cycling riders had a fantastic time over the four days, supported on the road by Andy and Mark their ride leaders, as well as Dave and Liz in the support van, who were on hand during the event to provide private pit stops and extra mechanical help where necessary. 

Here’s what some of the clients had to say about the trip:

Hard to believe that it is a week since we were pedalling hard along the northern coast of Majorca! What a fabulous experience and a great trip, well organised but relaxed, a perfect balance. A big thank you to Andy and Mark for looking after us so well, showing us where to be and when to be there. The ACC experience was excellent and I will be back for more!


Wanted to send a note to say thanks for a great trip and great organisation to you and all the team. Really enjoyed and impressed with all details and support. I will recommend you for sure and hope to travel again with you in the future.


We hope to be back at the 312 in 2020 for another epic weekend of cycling! Watch this space for more details on booking.

What a fantastic fortnight it’s been on the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Week Lanzarote. 70 riders enjoyed constant sunshine, learnt new skills, conquered some iconic climbs and ate a lot of ham and cheese rolls! Full round up to come #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #springcamp #cyclingcamp #trainingcamp #high5 #alecustomuk #conticycling #contityres #lazerhelmetsTuesday summed up in pictures: 🚴‍♀️☀️ 💨🐫🍹🧘‍♂️🥉31 miles completed today as a warm up before the ‘big one’ tomorrow. Lovely, sunny, but fairly windy, day out on the beautiful roads of Lanzarote! The camels made an appearance as the groups came back over Fire Mountain. Great turnout for the stretching session with Ben @bp.triathlete_ back at base, and then the ACC team came third in the Club La Santa quiz! Phew! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #mortensjuicebar 
#stretchingforcyclists #firemountain #camelsGreat day out has by all! 68 miles, 5500ft climbing and some excellent group riding - well done all! Particular highlights of today were the gorgeous views and gentle winds! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #cyclingcamp #trainingcamp #wintercyclingNice gentle 37 mile ride today to Femara for coffee in the sunshine ☀️😊 #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #coffeeinthesun #trainingcamp #andycookbikeweek #wintercyclingGreat riding from everyone today on the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Week. 55 miles to Arieta, up the 10km Haría climb, a well-deserved sandwich at the top and then a fun descent back down with a tailwind! #groupriding #teamwork #harialanzarote #kom #andycookcycling #andycookbikeweek #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #wintertraining #trainingcampWeek 2 has begun! We welcomed 40 sets of fresh legs to the camp today, with a very windy (but mainly dry) 47 mile ride. The best bit was the El Golfo coffee stop that some riders took, while other groups went onto Yaiza before heading home into a strong head wind. Looking forward to the rest of the week with a great bunch of people! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #lanzarote #cyclingcamp #wintermiles #trainingcampAfter a tough old day in the saddle yesterday (160km), it was lovely to have a gentle final 50km ride on Week 1 of the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Week. Followed by the traditional crazy golf tournament and rounded off by a game of Jenga! Thanks to all the clients who have  made Week 1 so brilliant! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #lanzarotecycling #lanzarote #cyclingcamp #andycookbikeweek‘Recovery day’ today on the Andy Cook Bike Week - 50km into another strong wind (although it has changed direction!) with delicious sarnies and fresh juice at Morten’s Juice Bar. Then there was a stretching session for all back at the hotel - although quite a few people weren’t all that stretchy! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #recoveryride #mortensjuicebar #freshjuice #stretchingforcyclists #cyclistsarenotflexibleIt’s been a great couple of days on the bikes in Lanzarote. A tough 70-miler today put everyone through their paces, but look at all the smiles! #andycookcycling #clublasanta #andycookbikeweek #lanzarotecycling #bikecamp #trainingcamp #wintersun #wintertraining #getthemilesin
