Lovely Lanzarote

Another year, another January spent in sunny Lanzarote. The 2019 Andy Cook Cycling Bike Weeks at Club La Santa proved that the island is the perfect place to train: Lanzarote boasts glorious weather and scenic roads, tough climbs and strong winds, as well as a pervasive atmosphere of sporting excellence.

Club La Santa itself is a heaven for all sporting-enthusiasts. With over 80 sports and activities to choose from within the resort, there isn’t a better place from which to run the Andy Cook Cycling Bike Weeks. Once again this year, Club La Santa and the Green Team staff were fantastic – helping the riders all day out on the roads, and leading post-ride stretching sessions.

The Andy Cook Cycling team – Andy, Jacqui, Mark, Ian, Phil and Tim – took up to 50 riders of all levels and abilities out each day, over the mountains and through the picturesque villages of the island.

 

There were plenty of coffee and cake stops along the way for our hard-working riders – San Bartolomé bakery and JonnieBakes in Teguise were particular favourites, as was a cafe in Guatiza where the group was treated to a magic show, as well as lovely coffee!

It was a fantastic two weeks of cycling, with nearly 1000 miles ridden over the two weeks. Here’s some of the lovely feedback we’ve had about the camp:

  • A fantastic week. 
  • Learn to cycle in a group
  • Cover 100 miles in a day
  • Learn about drafting
  • Learn the front can be tough
  • As a complete novice I’ve had the best time, thank you so much for giving me the confidence to go home with new skills.
  • A million thank yous, see you next year!

NM, Mallorca Bike Camp

If you like cycling I can’t think of anything better to do when it’s deep winter and you want to get some miles in enjoying a temperate climate and some sunshine.

GS, Mallorca Bike Camp

Just a brief note to thank you for a top cycling holiday. Great group, routes and leaders. I shall be back next year.

If you like the look of this camp and want to join in next year – the resort gets booked up very quickly, so it would be advisable to book as soon as you can. Next year’s Bike Weeks will be 3rd-9th and 10th-16th January 2020.

Club Pollentia Resort and Spa is one of the (if not THE) best hotel in Northern Mallorca. The Andy Cook Cycling team have been running cycling holidays from there for over 30 years, and it never wavers in quality. It’s understandably a popular place to stay - which is why we advise booking early for our Spring Camp 2020! With a variety of room choices, there are options to suit most budgets, however the most popular rooms are likely to go by January. Check out the rooms (the one shown here is a Villa Plus) on our website - link in bio - and get booking! #andycookcycling #teamacc #mallorcacycling #cyclingholiday #springcycling #everyonewelcome #cyclingcamp #clubpollentia #portpollenca #mallorca #portblueFor various reasons out of our control (one of them beginning with ‘B’), our Spring Camp prices will rise on January 1st - we want to make sure as many of as possible get a place on the camp at the 2019 prices, so get your bookings in now! 
Please note - smiles are not compulsory when riding with ACC in Mallorca, but sometimes we can’t help it 😄 #andycookcycling #teamacc #mallorcacycling #cyclingcamp #everyonewelcome #portpollenca #smilesformiles #happycycling #clubpollentia #springcyclingA great night at the 10th anniversary Action Medical Research Champions of Cyclesport Dinner. Andy Cook Cycling have attended every year and the 2019 edition was brilliant, as always! Thanks to @saaartjies and the AMR team for a great night 💃🚲🥂 #andycookcycling #amr #actionmedicalresearch #charitydinner #auction #cyclingcelebs #cyclingSometimes we find it hard to explain why our Mallorca Bike Week are so unique - but a new client summed it up perfectly after our Autumn Camp : “All involved in Andy Cook Cycling, family and associates, are just awesome. We want to thank you all for making us feel so welcome. We sensed a true generosity of spirit - which explains why you have such a loyal following. What a lovely group of cyclists you attract.”
