Add in the additional food stalls and retail outlets and there should be something for everyone at a true “Cycling for all” festival.
The sportive routes cover just over 100 miles into Wales using some testing climbs prior to returning back over the Severn Bridge whilst the shorter option also crosses the Severn Bridge twice with a stop just over the bridge on the outskirts of Chepstow.

At last we have finished unpacking following our return from our Mallorca Bike Camp and we are delighted to report our riders had an excellent trip.
We spent just over 2 weeks in Mallorca based at the first rate Pollentia Club Resort. As we have been using the hotel for nearly 20 years it feels very much like a second home to us. Riders who attended the Camp were split between either a 1 week or 2 week stay. Andy and Jacqui together with our experienced Ride Guides led the riders on different routes according to individual need. We had relative beginners through to seasoned enthusiasts who all experienced the varied terrain of the island. We rode the beautiful mountain roads of the northern coast as well as the gentle inland countryside.
We should like to thank the support we received from our Ride Leaders as well as the efficient and friendly staff at Pollentia. Also the support from Science In Sport and their great range of nutritional products!
Most important of all thanks to the riders who joined us this year and their positive feedback: -
“Great Camp. Just what the doctor ordered…see you in Lanzarote in January!” M.B.
”…well organised…” J.V.
”I had a brilliant time, learnt a lot and its really boosted my confidence” L.B.
”Everything from the rides to the food was nothing short of first rate! I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a training camp. Our last days ride over Puig Major rates as one of the best rides ever for me…” M.W.
We look forward to seeing you again next year!
Andy & Jacqui
