A medium - high activity level takes place during this cycling training camp. You are required to have a medium fitness level. The training camp is to help improve your self-confidence in a female only environment and is aimed at improving your fitness and bike skills.
This training camp is aimed for women who have a passion for cycling. Our goal is to provide women with an opportunity to train together and experience the fun of cycling but in a challenging environment.
What are your main worries when you consider a training camp?
That's why at Sportactive we focus on teaching you new skills, and honing those already learned. If you can gain a broad base of skills in a focused environment, you will unquestionably become a better rider. This will allow you to go away with new skills to put into practice for the rest of your cycling years.
The main mistake people make is to assume a training camp is about volume ; that it's about getting the miles in. At Sportactive we focus on quality, not on quantity.
Think about how many miles you have done on your bike. Do you feel you rode them efficiently? Or is there room for improvement? Is your bike position right? Can you ride efficiently in a group? How are your descending and climbing skills? At Sportactive the coaches are able to work at a level and style that matches the level of the group. This will have a positive effect on you as an individual and the group as a whole.
To support this learning environment further we have found that having a Sportactive Women's Exclusive training camp, allows for better interaction and cohesion within the group. The coaches are able to work at a level and style that matches the majority of the group.
Wind down after your active day on the bike with a swim in one of the indoor or outdoor pools followed by a Sports Massage. José, our professional in-house masseur will take care of your leg, shoulder and back muscles with an invigorating and relaxing massage.
SportActive Bike Garage based at the Hotel Viva Tropic, it is exclusive for SportActive Members. Featuring bike mechanic and shop sale of bike accessories, energy drinks & bars, full range of SportActive cycling kit, selection of cycling clothing.
Bike Hire: we recommend you hire your bike with SportActive in Mallorca. We have a selection of top quality bikes, alloy frame carbon forks and full carbon bikes for hire, and for beginner cyclists, bikes with straight handle bars, as opposed to the drop down bars of the racing bikes.
This not only saves you bringing your own bike, but our bike mechanic will ensure your bike is serviced and in tip-top condition before you explore this exciting island.
You will be staying at the four star rated Hotel Viva Tropic & Spa, located in Puerto Alcùdia on Mallorca's north coast. This is one of the most pittoresque parts on the Mediterranean island, yet right at the heart of entertainment and shopping, as well as 200m from a beautiful golden beach. If that was not enough, the hotel affords good views of the magnificent Tramuntana Mountains.
The hotel offers a choice of rooms, several swimming pools and restaurants, Turkish bath, Jacuzzi, and spa. After a hard day's ride, it has everything you need to relax before getting back on the saddle.

Had a fantastic week cycling in Malloca with SportActive.... Loved seeing the beautiful countryside. Thanks to Derek for pacing me, challenging me and building up my cycling confidence. Thanks for advice from Derek and Martin on how to achieve my cycling goals. Am looking forward to the Cambridge 100 at the end of April and Norwich 100 in June. Wanting to seek out hills never thought I'd be saying this!!
Just want to say a big thank you to everybody in Sportactive for a brilliant week... we learnt loads made lots of friends and enjoyed every minute of the holiday. It has given us great confidence and improved our cycling abilities and we will definitely be back!
Just to say thanks for a great trip. Everything was really well organised.... and things went very smoothly. I really learned a lot and am inspired to cycle more. Thanks, Martin, for all your advice and encouragement on the roads.
