From the quick response to my emailed questions to the welcome pack upon arrival at the hotel, what sets this holiday apart is the attention to detail. A well-appointed hotel with superb facilities, a good variety of food and a clean beach within a 5 minute walk of the hotel with stunning views of the mountains makes your stay easy for the days you don’t ride. On the days that you do ride, a perfect road surface awaits, helping you to cover a lot of miles in a short period of time and making it a little easier on the climbs. What little traffic there is gives plenty of space to cyclists and you won’t find many drivers arguing with the ‘two cyclists riding abreast’ traffic rule. Café stops are plenty and always stock a good variety of tasty, home-made cakes. The rides are predominantly a rural experience with vineyards, stonewalls, goats and horses and then when you get into the villages there are beautiful ancient churches, classic Spanish architecture and interesting local characters to observe. The ride leaders are experienced riders and clearly want you to enjoy the time you spend on the roads with them – no one gets left behind. They are also very friendly, made me feel welcome and it was very sad to have to return home – it won’t be a long absence though.

The hotel was perfectly situated for a great variety of cycling, with comfortable and spacious accommodation, and an adult only pool and sunbeds ideal for relaxing after a day out cycling.  The buffet style breakfasts and dinners catered for every taste and need, cycling daily gave me a tremendous appetite, so it was great to have so much choice. The hotel also provided laundry facilities, which was such a bonus, when you want clean kit everyday.

The SunVelo set-up is completely spot-on, the quality of bikes available is excellent, however what really made the week special was the SunVelo team, I believe between them there is nothing they don’t know about cycling.  It was a privilege to ride with such professionals, who were so generous with their knowledge, and incredibly skilled at making everyone’s experience just right for them. During the week I felt challenged and supported, as well as inspired and encouraged. Everyday we cycled through beautiful countryside, mountains and coastline and saw so much of Majorca, stopping at a different spot each day for lunch, so at the end of the week I felt fitter, stronger and so much more confident in my cycling skills but at the same time feeling relaxed and having done lots of sight-seeing. The experience of riding within a group was also very enjoyable, sharing the work and benefiting from cycling together, as well as getting to know my fellow SunVelo holiday visitors, such a great group of people.

I’d like to thank Dave for being such a great host and for his ‘can do’ attitude, dealing with any challenge thrown at him, such as lost passports, so helpfully.

Alastair, for his patience, kindness and truly brilliant ability to know what’s good for you.

And Tomeu for showing us the real Majorca, and some beautiful well-earned views.

I cannot wait to pedal with you all again! Wishing you every success.
