"Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the Mallorca Cycling Academy and to thank you for all your help over the week. The support and advice, both on the road and off the road, were fantastic and I really felt I got a huge benefit from the week as a result. Hope to cycle with you all again some time!" The Cycling Academy is a completely new approach to Spring riding. We focus on more than simply providing a few warm, sunny routes to improve your conditioning, but offer the opportunity to improve your riding skill and knowledge as well. Over the week the focus is on high quality coaching and fully supported rides to take your cycling to a new level. Features of the Cycling Academy include:
  • Fully supported group rides catering for all abilities, led by experienced and knowledgeable guides. We will run 3-4 ride groups on each day to suit your fitness, experience and desire.
  • Skills sessions focusing on areas such as descending and group riding, and seminars on key subjects such as nutrition, to really boost your all-round cycling skills, knowledge and fitness.
  • One-to-one consultations with a La Fuga Coach to discuss your training.
This week-long training camp will feature daily structured endurance rides. Choose a group tailored to your ability and benefit from a following car providing mechanical support, extra drinks and spare clothing in the event of inclement weather. Experienced guides will accompany each group and pass on their knowledge, as well as leading the group to the best cycling roads on the island.

Saturday 12 March – ARRIVAL DAY
After arriving at Palma International Airport, we transfer by coach to our base in Porto Pollensa. A mechanic will be on hand to help you assemble your bike. The Academy Director will host a welcome meeting at the hotel bar in the evening.

Sunday 13 March – Day 1
Our camp starts with a ride in two parts. We will commence with a generally flat 70km ride through the rolling plains of central Mallorca, having a chance to get to know the riders in our group as we roll past olive groves and vineyards.

We’ll then head north to the Coll de la Creueta – a 3.5km climb on a beautiful surface, which lets you and your legs know you’ve arrived and offers each rider an opportunity to assess their climbing and descending to start the week.

Monday 14 March – Day 2
Day 2 is focused on descending, with our first excursion into the mountains allowing riders the option enjoying one of the cycling world’s best descents down to the tiny fishing village of Sa Calobra, but be warned, it’s a dead-end road, so the only way home is back up.

For those for whom enjoy and descend aren’t yet paired, we offer our on-road descending practical – a perfect opportunity to have instant on-road feedback with experienced coaches, to perfect the technique and build the confidence to make the rest of your week’s descending a truly enjoyable experience.

Tuesday 15 March – Day 3
San Salvador is a popular destination for all cyclists visiting the island. A monastery perched atop a rocky outcrop in the centre of the island, San Salvador receives as many cycling pilgrims as it does religious devotees. The tough ascent is rewarded with 360 degree views across the entire island. 135km with shorter options available… and a damned fine cake-stop along the way!

Wednesday 16 March – Day 4 – REST DAY
Wednesday is a rest day from group riding, allowing the body to recover and adapt, but Accelerator one-to-one coaching sessions will be available to improve skills without providing additional training stress. For those who are keen to keep rolling and not waste any sunshine, we’re happy to offer a route for a gentle spin and great scenery.

Thursday 17 March – Day 5
The ride today takes us into the heart of the Traumuntana Mountains with a range of routes from 100km to 140km, featuring the inspiring climbs of Soller and Puig Major as the main challenge.

Friday 18 March – Day 6
Our last day of riding revisits some of the best terrain the island has to offer, while throwing in some fantastic surprises too. Riders will have a chance to appreciate every gain made in their group riding, descending and, if they play their cards right, hopefully their sprinting too!

Saturday 19 March – DEPARTURE DAY
After a full week of amazing riding, we’ll pack your bike and transfer you back to the airport. Kick back and savour the best memories of the week.
