Majorca, Recommended cycling companies?

Postby Slowmart » Mon Mar 09, 2015 15:41 pm

Hi,

I fancy some warm sun on my bones and Im looking into the possibilities of a week in Majorca.

There's plenty of choice on the net but other than a crudders weekend away in the lakes or Wales this is something I've not done so I'd appreciate your views on taking my own bike?

I'm no racing snake and variable ride options on a daily basis would be ideal?

Thanks in advance.
And God created the bicycle, so that man could use it as a means for work and to help him negotiate life's complicated journey.

With enough notice you can hire some really nice bikes for around e160 for 7 days, we hire bikes, take cabin baggage only and hire a car, the routes are easily down loaded from various sites and its not complicated to find your way around.
We have always based ourselves in P/Pollensa
Taking your bike means you need a bike box and the extra flight costs and i m always scared it wont turn up or get damaged.
for a guided option several people i know have used this guy and recommend;

I've got a bike booked and now will be looking for some rides. I would prefer a organised ride. As I don't know the roads. I'm staying in Puerto
Pollensa .

Stephen Roche Holidays are based in Palmanova. Can't recommend highly enough. A great bunch of people. We went last Easter and are going again in a fortnight

Just got back from a week in Mallorca. We used Pollensa Cycling.

Can't fault them really.Bikes arrived dead on time at our villa, they all looked pretty much brand new.

Had a little problem with one of the bikes after a few days and they replaced it straight away.

Definitely recommend them.

Hi all

I too am heading out in July (More a holiday with the Mrs) but hoping to get some early rides in for a couple of days... I was originally looking at Pollensa Cycling, but have been turned by the bikes on offer at Pro Cycle hire...

Does anyone know what the Massi Pro Ultegra bike is like, in comparison to say the Kuota bikes that Pollens hire out...

Never gonna ride a bike of my own with full deep carbon rims so thought I'd give them a go out there... See what all the fuss is about :D

I think I was in your shop last week, a friendly woman agreed to change some cleats for one of the boys with some really stinky shoes ~ Good Service.

And if so the Trek Emonda range you had outside looked very nice.
The path of my life is strewn with cowpats from the devil's own satanic herd.

Seriously...??? Never been to Mallorca before... Is it renown for being windy out there??

Can be, especially near the coast (and being a relatively small island, nowhere is that far from the coast!), not too much to worry about though, I've always used 50mm rims out there (been out at various times between February and April) and they've been perfectly rideable
