Mallorca

Mallorca has long been a favourite destination for cyclists from around the world, with many pro teams that return year after year. Bicycle Sportive Travel Club managed to squeeze in a trip in the fall of 2021 and we’re looking to offer a return trip in 2022! Basecamp is an amazing 17th century restored villa, Finca son Viguet)t where the private cook will prepare delicious, gigantic dinners and epic breakfasts for the hungry crew.  When not eating or riding you will likely spend most of your time gazing at the long view over rolling hills and picturesque towns to the sea. Our days will be filled with long rides in the mountains (including the famous and gorgeous Sa Calobra climb), stunning coastline loops, quiet country lanes and some charming traditional villages where the pace of life has hardly changed for decades (or centuries?). Sunshine, great road surfaces, respectful traffic, stunning scenery, a warm and welcoming local culture and lots of amazing food. You’ll find it all in Mallorca..
