Club Trip to Mallorca
Club trip to Mallorca 2018
Some club members have booked a week long cycling holiday to Mallorca this year and all club members and guests are welcome to come along. The group will contain riders of varying abilities and fitness levels, so the routes will be designed to enable all to participate as much or as little as you want.
The details of the trip we have booked are as outlined below. If you would like to join us for some or all of the week, then please make your own arrangements and we’ll see you there. Mallorca is also an ideal place to bring along family or friends who don’t want to cycle as there are options for hiking, gentle walks, relaxing and water sports.
Dates: Saturday 21st April to Saturday 28th April
Place: Puerto Pollensa
Flights: Bookings so far made with Jet 2 return flights from East Midlands. There are many other flight options to fly from other airports and with other airlines although Jet 2 is a very ‘bike’ friendly airline. When last checked Jet 2 Holidays Package were offering a better deal than booking flight & accommodation separately – this was with an early bird discount.
Hotels: Bookings so far made at the Hotel Hoposa Daina . Other people are also looking at the Puerto Azul Suite Hotel. Both hotels offer garage/storage facilities for bikes. Both offer the option of B & B or half board. Presently the Azul Hotel is working out approx £250 cheaper when doing half board than the Hoposa. There are also self catering apartments available in the resort area. If any people are travelling alone they could consider room sharing hotel rooms to avoid any single supplements or maybe an apartment is worth looking into for groups. Use the club whatsapp group to gauge interest.
Bike hire: Plenty of options for bike hire in Puerto Pollensa
Transporting your own bike? If you’d like advice on this if you haven’t done it before then please ask Jacqui, Marie, Charlie, Peter, Jon or Lincoln. You don’t necessarily need a specific bike box or bag – a cardboard bike box from the bike shop is fine with integral bubble wrap packing around the bike. For better bike protection though it is worth considering a hard bike case. These are available to hire for very reasonable rates – Cycling 2000 at Burton on Trent stocks them, available to hire or buy.
