5 Star Gold Tours

Top Quality Cycling Holiday in Cycle Paradise!

If you’re looking for an excellent standard of accommodation and attention to detail then this cycling holiday is for you.

New for 2017, we have chosen a fantastic 5 star deluxe hotel, the Son Vida that has very comfortable bedrooms, an excellent swimming pool / spa and gourmet breakfasts.

Located on a hill, with stunning views onto Palma, you are in an ideal position to make the most of this beautiful city and the fantastic riding in the South West. There is no traffic to deal with, as we leave the hotel by very quiet B-roads and are immediately in the countryside.

Palma has been voted No 1. small city in Europe for a reason; it is just the right size, friendly and has some stunning architecture that dates back to the 12th century. It is stuffed full of interesting things to do, superb restaurants, and even has it’s own set of beaches.

Tailor Made Rides that Take in all the Best Spots

Years of experience guiding in Majorca means that we know all the best routes, the shortcuts to avoid busy roads, and where the best cafes are hiding!

We choose the best road surfaces, the best climbs and the nicest descents.

It is very easy to leave Palma and quickly find quiet, smooth roads in the countryside that lead to challenging small cols, and on to the coast rides that we love so much. Famous cols like Soller, Orient, Es Grau are all close.

Two professional guides and a backup vehicle carrying drinks, snacks, tools, tyres, etc. will be with you at all times. Speaking fluent English, French and Spanish means that we have no problems communicating with the locals!

And with over 10 years of guiding experience, you don’t need to worry about being left behind, we keep our groups together!

We eat either at the hotel or out in Palma so that you get a feel for this vibrant city and it’s night life. Each night’s restaurant is chosen for it’s cuisine, quality and ambience. Excellent food is guaranteed!

And we also select the best cafes and restaurants for lunch, for example for their view, their food, etc.

We meet you at the airport and accompany you in your private transfer to your hotel, where your top end hire bike (if selected) will be waiting for you.

We provide full back up at all times. Not only are we on call 24/7, our support vehicle means that no one will suffer from a breakdown, be it mechanical or human!

We feel confident that this cycling holiday will give you the best, not only of Majorca’s cycling, but also of Majorca itself.
