Travel insurance is essential as is a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for UK and European residents. The EHIC can be applied for online and takes 7-10 days to arrive after application.
There are numerous insurance companies who provide cover that includes a variety of sports and activities.
How fit do I need to be?
You don’t need a high level of fitness before you come on the tour because we have groups to cater for a range of abilities but some of the more challenging routes will require a reasonable level of cycling fitness. If you have any concerns please contact us to discuss further.
What type of bike do I need?
You’ll need a road bike in good working order. Cycling shoes and clipless pedals are strongly recommended. Our own bike mechanics or any of the local bike shops will be able to help you in the event of a mechanical problem.
What is the weather like and what cycling clothes should I bring?
Although Mallorca enjoys a Mediterranean climate, you should come prepared for the occasional wet day and it can be considerably cooler in the mountains. Riders on all tours are advised to bring arm and leg warmers, gloves, a gilet and rain jacket. Equally, the sun can be quite strong even in March so sun block is recommended.
How big are the groups?
Our group sizes typically range from 8 to 16 riders, each with two guides in radio contact with each other and the support vehicle.
What support is offered?
Our support vehicle carries a first aid kit, essential spares and tools, water, energy snacks and drinks as well as your spare items of clothing. In addition to guiding you each day, our guides are also on hand to help and advise you and also to provide encouragement on the more challenging sections.
Are transfers included?
All our tours include return transfers from Palma airport to our hotel in Puerto Pollensa. The journey time between the airport and hotel is approximately 55 minutes.
Can I bring a non cycling partner/friend?
Of course, non-cycling partners and friends are most welcome. Mallorca is a beautiful and relaxing place with a large selection of other activities available.
Should I hire or bring my own bike?
Many of our clients bring their own bikes. It is also possible to hire good quality road bikes locally to save the hassle and worry of transporting your own bike. If you decide to hire a bike we recommend that you book well in advance to avoid disappointment. Our preferred company is Pro Cycle Hire
