A week riding with SportActive, and you will break through this wall and reach a new level in your cycling
Improve your Cycling : often we start road cycling with the best of intentions but hit a wall. Without the right coaching advice breaking through this wall can feel like an impossible task.
This cycling holiday is about you becoming a better cyclist, and not trying to achieve a Tour de France time
The routes you ride will be structured around your ability, and you will never be pushed too much or expected to ride further than you can. Our group riding system ensures you are riding at the right level to match your skills and abilities.
Mallorca is one of the best places to cycle in the world.
Team SKY and other pro peloton teams train here in the off season. The roads are winding and mostly traffic free, and our routes will ensure you have you own cycling adventure, improving all the time. You will learn road cycling in a relaxed atmosphere. You will also get to see beautiful parts of the island and experience its culture.
Relax after your Ride
After your cycling why not wind down with a relaxing sports massage? Or go for a spa or a swim in one of the three hotel pools? Let’s not forget the after-ride walk on the beach.
We ride together, we eat together, and camaraderie forms
All SportActive guests stay under the same roof. Our guests tell us they make new long lasting friendships on our tours. If you are wondering if you can enjoy the holiday if you’re travelling alone, the answer is yes.
No need to transport your Bike
Don’t take your bike on a plane hire one of ours. Our bike mechanic keeps them on the road, and our bike shop sells everything you need for cycle training. Bikes with straight handle bars are available as well as racing bikes.
Beaches, Shopping and Nightlife
When you’re not training, why not walk on a beautiful golden beach, where you will be greeted by the sea air and breeze. The blue sea stretches as far as your eye can see. You will also be in the heart of Mallorca’s shopping and nightlife districts
Itinerary, Cycling Location, and Profile
Cycling Holiday Location
Your Cycling Holiday is located on the Balearic island of Mallorca, belonging to Spain. Mallorca is known as the Paradise for cyclists due to its weather conditions, smoth traffic free roads, mountain climbs and also flat-undulating roads making it the ideal place of all types of cyclists and training needs. Puerto Alcùdia, our base, is situated on the north coast, the most picturesque part of Mallorca.
Cycling Holiday Profile
5 structured rides/week in ability groups.
The Leisure & beginners group is usually no more than 5 to 6 people which allows to take care of their individual needs.
Pace: 3-5 hours per day, adapted to the group's ability.
Lunch stop in a local bar plus one or two coffee stops, depending on the days and how the group evolves
Daily distance in km: Depending on the ability of the group ; we starti with 30 or 40 kms (less if the people in the group need to do less) and build it up to 50 and 60 km. The road surface is smooth in Mallorca. This means that with the effort you need in the UK or Ireland to cycle 40 km, you'll do 60 in Mallorca. Don't be afraid by the numbers of kms indicated as it is easier than you think to clock up the miles. And again, we adapt to the people in the group.

I signed up for the beginner’s week in Mallorca as it was my first time to use a road bike.
Flora is an excellent instructor and immediately put me at ease which led to a very enjoyable week. With Flora's coaching I was soon climbing and descending hills with confidence.
I would also like to thank Stephen and Martin for providing a bike that suited me so well.
I well definitely return to Sportactive Mallorca again and will be recommending to a lot of friends.
