Your bike

Our objective for the two weeks is to make sure that you have a great time. Please take time to read through these notes carefully as it will help make your time with us as safe and hassle free as possible.

Prior to Travel

Nothing spoils a holiday of this nature more than a malfunctioning bike. Please spend time making sure that your bike is in excellent working order. New tyres, tubes, brake blocks and cables are obvious improvements that can alleviate problems whilst on the camp. 
Transmission is another area that needs to be in good working order (Chain and sprockets). It is essential that you check the transmission of your bike works correctly after fitting any new equipment, as there are often problems with worn or new teeth running old or new chains.

Our recommendation is to get a quality mechanic at your local shop to fit and check the equipment out, then ensure you go out for a longish ride before packing your bike away for your holiday. 
You will need appropriate gearing. We suggest a minimum of 39 x 25 as a bottom gear but many of our clients use a compact group set or triple chain set (see note below for more help). There is a small bike shop on site at Club Pollentia and Pro Cycle Hire provide high quality hire bikes from their base in Puerto Pollenca.

Note: Compact group sets usually have a 50/34 front chain ring and 12/25 rear sprocket whilst a triple typically provides 52/42/32 front rings and 12/25 rear sprocket. This is all down to your personal needs and preferences but if you have any queries just contact us and we will happily help out.

Packing your Bike

Your bike is the single most important part of your holiday and a damaged one could ruin your holiday, it is essential therefore that you take great care packing it. Here are a few simple guidelines:

  • Remove your pedals with a pedal spanner and place in a separate box or turn around and thread on the inside of your cranks
  • Using a good quality allen key loosen your handle bar stem and handlebars and turn in towards the frame.
Either remove your seat post and saddle or simply drop down inside your seat tube (Remember to mark the post with your correct height)
  • Remove both wheels, quick release skewers and deflate your tyres.
  • Place protective plastic or wooden spacers in both the fork dropouts and rear dropouts, these can normally be sourced in your local bike shop, failing this old hubs will do the job perfectly.
  • Lag and protect all-important parts of your bike. The pipe insulation that plumbers use is good for this task. If in doubt remove it and package it safely and neatly. If you use zip ties or tape to hold any parts secure for traveling don’t forget to take some spares with you for packing for the return trip.
  • Label all of your parts and protective strips so re-packing at the end of your holiday is not such an ordeal.

There are a number of options for carrying your bike. You can use the cardboard boxes that new bikes arrive in, purpose build bike bags which come with differing levels of protective foam and the purpose build travel bike boxes which although they can be expensive, probably offer the best protection for your bike.
 However when you pack your bike please remember to ensure your bike is covered on you own insurance just in case the worst should happen.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch and ask us atbooking@andycookcycling.com. Our aim is for you to have a great bike camp so if we can offer any advice which will help, we will.

Route 2,802,055 - powered by www.bikemap.net

WE ARE NOT JUST A BOOKING AGENT - WE WILL BE PRESENT 24/7 FOR THE ENTIRE PERIOD OF OUR OFFER:

Saturday, March 19 to Saturday, April 16, 2016; minimum stay one week

The preferred arrival day is Saturday, so you have Saturday to assemble your bike or take care of the bike rental, and familiarize yourself with the organization / set-up of the facilities, etc.  Depending on your arrival time at the hotel, you might have time for a short spin in the afternoon.  You should arrive latest on Sunday, as the riding builds up during the week - you don't want to arrive on Wednesday, as the group usually has a big climbing day on Thursday - and that should not be your first day.  However, we are flexible and try to accommodate your schedule.  Also, please note, we will pick you up at the airport, whenever you arrive - at no extra charge.

The minimum stay is one week, with departure thereafter whenever it best fits your schedule. 


If you don't bring your own bike, we have quality bike rentals available:
Centurion and/or Cube carbon bikes with Shimano Ultegra 10-speed (triple), some with Shimano Ultegra Di2 (compact).

All this is available to you at competitive prices.


We will again be staying at the Hotel Playa de Muro where have been staying for the last 15 years; it is a very comfortable hotel, and is the home of the cycling infrastructure

The center of the action in Mallorca, hundreds of thousands of tourists never make it out of Palma bay. Palma bay contains the international airport and seaport as well as the Balearic capital of Palma de Mallorca. The bay contains two distinct areas; Palma de Mallorca, the business and cultural hub of Mallorca and the bay resorts, a mecca for sun, sand and sea loving tourists.

Accommodation is abundant and ranges from dirt cheap to high-end 5 star hotels. The bay resorts (Platja de Palam, Palmanova and Magaluf) boast sandy beaches, raucous night-life and all the comforts of England or Germany. Stick in Palma de Mallorca if your looking for something a bit more refined (or Spanish).

·         Cycling in Majorca

Cycling and Majorca go hand in hand. The island has a strong reputation for helping amateur to professional cyclists improve their skills, whether on road bikes, mountain bikes or motorcycles. If you’re looking to spend your Majorca holiday on two wheels rather than two feet, read on for the best bike routes and advice.

Road Cycling Holidays to Majorca    

The Sky team is just one of the competitive groups that have chosen Majorca for training in the past, thanks to its varied terrain and excellent roads.    

  • Peak season for road cycling is during spring, with September to October also providing good conditions, but hard-core professionals can be found here in December and January.  
  • There are plenty of flat routes around towns and cities that allow you to take in the sites without pounding the pavements. A Palma city break is very bike-friendly as the city contains several hire shops around the centre such as Palma on Bike and Gomila.
  • Try the MA-10 road which runs from Pollensa and Sa Calobra to Andraitx, Palma and Soller. It’s recommended by cyclists who want great views and a smooth route around the island.    

Mountain Biking Holidays in Majorca  

Go off-road and discover amazing trails that pass through Majorcan countryside. Get to know the inland towns and villages as you travel.    

  • Soller is a great area to base yourself in for a mountain bike break, with easy access to hilly routes. Staying in Puerto Soller means that you enjoy refreshing sea breezes and the lively atmosphere of the town’s restaurants after a long day’s ride.
  • Alcudia is another alternative that active holidaymakers will love. This is a good family resort, so if you're bringing small children or non-cyclists then consider a break here.
  • Mountain Bike Tours, in Magaluf, can organise night rides as well as day excursions. Other hire companies with tour information include Tramuntana Tours and Pro Cycle Mallorca.    

Motorcycling on your Majorca Holiday    

If you’d rather not be pedalling your way around the island, why not hop on a motorcycle and take out the hard work?    

  • Take on challenging climbs such as the winding route to the Santuari de Sant   Salvador, near Calas de Mallorca, which has a mountaintop monastery with a cafe for visitors.
  • Sa Calobra has beautiful views and some of those all-important hairpin bends, whilst the road to Cap de Formentor rewards you with a picture-perfect lighthouse overlooking the ocean.  
  • Companies that offer vehicles for hire include Albion Motorcycles, Mallorca Motorbike and Moto Sprint, all of which have a selection of models and brands.

Tips for your Cycling Holiday  

  • Make sure you get the correct bike for your needs; a road cyclist can’t use a mountain bike if they expect to get results! Hire shops will advise you on the right one for your trip.
  • Always wear a helmet. It’s just common sense!
  • As it enjoys a Mediterranean climate, Majorca is incredibly sunny all year round. Kit yourself out with sun cream, sunglasses and plenty of water to keep hydrated.
  • Don’t forget to bring or buy a light if you’re going to be travelling through the mountain tunnels.  
  • Avoid travelling by bike or motorcycle in the wet, as roads will be very slippery.  
  • If you hear anyone refer to ‘The Pig’, they’re probably talking about Puig Mayor: the biggest mountain on the island!

For more information and to create your own Majorca holiday, with flights and accommodation, easyJet holidays has a range of options to suit your needs for 2013. Whether you want to be right by the mountains in Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa or you’d prefer to be nearer to Palma and its network of cycle lanes, there’s plenty of choice.

Cycling hotel in Mallorca

The perfect hotel for cycling holidays in Mallorca

Cycling hotel in Mallorca

A specialist cycling hotel in Mallorca.

As a specialised cycling hotel in Mallorca we understand that your requirements as a cyclist differ hugely from those of your average holiday maker. Cycling tourism has taken off in recent years here on the island and many hotels claim to be just that, but not all hotels are suitable for cyclists. The best choice for you is a cycling hotel designed to cater to your specific needs, fully equipped and well positioned as a base for your cycling tours around the island. At Aparthotel Duva we do exactly that, and we do it well. We are the perfect cycling hotel in Mallorca. The benefits of choosing a real cycling hotel in Mallorca are very considerable, and with us you just need to come and cycle and we take care of the rest.

Cycling hotel in Mallorca, our facilities.

It is important to chose the right cycling hotel for your stay in Mallorca. Your equipment is valuable and the days out on the mountains are long and arduous. A cycling hotel is your best option because it's fully prepared and has the specific needs of the cyclist in mind. Your bike and you need a safe and comfortable place to rest and the cycling hotel of your choice really should have a gym and spa on hand, maybe an indoor pool too. Massage services and a cycle shop would be useful added options. Then there is your location of course. You will need a cycling hotel in Mallorca close to the best cycling routes, and a good cafe nearby. At Duva cycling hotel in Mallorca we are particularly well placed to offer you all the facilities you need for your stay. 

Mallorca cycling hotel designed for the comfort of cyclists.

Rest is an essential element in cycling. How else are you going to get up those rocky mounds up in the Tramuntana mountains if you haven't had a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed? Our rooms have been designed with your comfort in mind, large airy rooms, excellent quality mattresses and fresh crisp linen combine to ensure you wake up refreshed and ready for a new day out on the road. Above all a cycling hotel in Mallorca needs to be place to rest.

Cycling in Mallorca - Our hotel staff are here to look after you.

Cycling is an important part of our life here in Mallorca and as a cycling hotel we have made it our business to know all there is to know about cycling on the island. We offer all kinds of tips on alternative cycling routes, inform you on the weather or state of the roads, suggest places to stop for a bite to eat on the way and tell you about sports events you may be interested in. Our hotel staff will also be happy to make enquiries if you have any further doubts or questions. 

A good cycling hotel in Mallorca offers meals for sports people. 

Nutrition is vital. A cycling hotel in Mallorca must offer an early breakfast, because cyclists set off dawn and need to start the day with a good nutritionaly balanced meal. The hotel staff need to take into account that cyclists require a special diet to cope with a whole day spent on the bike and food for sport is an essential element to a training programme. The hotel for cyclists needs a  menu designed especially for the nutritional needs of a cyclist.

Mallorca Cycling hotel with a fully fitted workshop for bike repairs.

A good cycling hotel in Mallorca should have a fully equipped bike workshop on the hotel premises and a cycling specialist on hand to repair, refit or hone your bike and get it ready for the following day. We also have a pro cycle shop on the premises should you or your bike require any extra kit. 

Cycling hotel in Mallorca with a secure lock up for bikes.

Your bikes need a safe place to spend the night too and a good cycling hotel in Mallorca should have a secure compartment on the premises to lock your bike up while you rest. Our bike lock up has ramp access for vehicles and separate bike cages for groups. Located next to our bike workshop and behind the pro cycle shop, the cycling area is easily accessible and designed to make the experience as stress free and enjoyable as we can. 

Cycling hotel for large groups and training camps in Mallorca.

Cycling hotel in Mallorca with secure lockup for bikes

Cycling is not only a solitary activity and at our cycling hotel in Mallorca we often have large cycling groups staying with us, specially in the cooler months when the island´s roads are safe and free of traffic and the temperatures have dropped. A good cycling hotel in Mallorca should be able to accommodate these large groups of cyclists, this way your group can stick together and organise itself for the tours ahead. Many groups come to Mallorca for training camps and the pre-season warm up and require comprehensive meeting rooms to plan their routes. 

A cycling hotel near the best cycle routes in Mallorca.

Location is very important in a cycling hotel in Mallorca. A hotel for cyclists needs to be well positioned and easily accessible from the main cycling routes. Duva is located on the main Pollensa to Puerto Pollensa road, ideally placed for Tramuntana mountain tours and the Cape of Formentor. It is also within walking distance of the town, restaurants and cafes and the beaches are a mere 10 minutes away while the flat plains in the centre of the island are a short cycle from the hotel.

Amic, one tip: a mi me fue muy bien dos cosas en Orange Velo, y los clientes siempre me dijeron "no hay otra empresa haciendo nada igual"

·        

13:51

Amic Andreu

vino ?

oler las flores ?

·        

13:52

Franklin Tello

1. Crear un booklet/map con etapas y fotos de cycling en la isla que sirva como welcome kit en dia uno. El ciclista lo valora y se lo queda de recuerdo.

·        

13:52

Amic Andreu

zumo de soller ?

·        

13:53

Franklin Tello

No es dificil de crear. Y si lo imprimes como "photo book" te cuesta 15-20 euros maximo.

·        

13:53

Amic Andreu

punto 1 . Estamos de acuerdo ! y esta previsto

te refieres a fotos de los propios clientes ?

·        

13:54

Franklin Tello

2. Escoger un dia guapo y tomarle un par de fotos buenas al ciclista en modo individual. Te puedo asegurar que no hay un ciclista con un foto guapa

A menos que sea pro, y ellos no van a venir a hacer cicloturismo.

Y no es dificil. Yo me los llevaba a una cuesta y les hacia subir una vez sonriendo. Tu tienes muchas cuestas por el hotel!

Y no hace falta camara especial si sabes algo de fotografia.

·        

13:57

Amic Andreu

ese es un muy buen consejo .

·        

13:58

Franklin Tello

Lo otro es que yo siempre daba alternativas: 1. Ciclismo en grupo, todos juntos, ruta diferente cada dia. 2. Ciclismo individual (para los que bienen a entrenar en serio) con ruta marcada clara en hotel y tips en puntos especiales para parar y comprar agua, mirar el paisaje, algun que otro story del pueblo, etc.

Yo siempre miro las empresas que siguen, y ninguna da una par de fotos impresas o digitales al ciclista al final de la semana. Imagina dar una especie de peque ceremonia en la ultima cena, donde se entreguen las fotos, y un certificado por completar la semana con los kilometros en total (como un tour), y que se le de al ciclosta todo esto como para agradecerle por haber sido parte de la experiencia ciclista en Mallorca.

·        

25/01/2016 14:02

Te puedo asegurar dos cosas: 1. El ciclista va hablar miy bien de ti con sus amigos y en tripadvisor. 2. El ciclista va a poner esas fotos por todo. Facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter, nevera, cubiculo, etc
