Ride Notes

Join us and the expert coaches from Rowe & King for a classic training camp in the cycling paradise of Mallorca. An ideal way to start your cycling season with some early season miles in the sunshine and coaching points to help you through the year. Each day you will join one of two speed groups matched best to your ability and follow our ride leaders over the best routes on the island. We spend some time improving our cycling skills including group riding, chaingangs, lead outs, climbing & descending.
At each ride we have mechanics following in support vans to help with any mechanicals and regular feed stops where you can grab more water, bars & fruit. We stop in a cafe for lunch and then all eat dinner together at the hotel. The camps are designed to improve your riding, set you up for a great year and enjoy a social week in the sunshine.

Climbs at Mallorca Training Camp

Sa Calobra

Sa Calobra is considered Mallorca’s toughest climb. It is best avoided during the hotter hours when there is heavy footfall from tourists. We recommend cycling the route either early in the morning or later in the day. Sa Calobra offers a steady 7% gradient for the majority of the climb, allowing you to find your rhythm. Did we mention that orange juice and cake is available at the top of the climb?

Ride Distance 9.5km
Elevation Gain 7%
KOM  24 mins 54 secs

Puig Major (Soller)

This is the longest climb available on the island and has so much to offer. Experience exquisite valley views while enjoying gentle gradients ranging between 5% and 7%. There is a flat section mid-way through so you can mentally prepare for the more challenging section towards the end. Enjoy winding up the mountain, cycling through a tunnel (there is lighting inside, but you may want to bring your own lights as the tunnel is also open to motorists) and coming out the other end to an explosion of stunning views on either side of the pathway.
