Improve your Cycling Performance and Reach your Next Level
Often we start training with the best of intentions but hit a wall. This is hard to break through without the right training & coaching advice.
The emphasis on this cycling holiday in Mallorca is training, and the relaxed atmosphere of Mallorca is the perfect place to do it. During your stay you will train and learn to master techniques in the following: cornering, braking, gear use, group riding skills, hill climbing techniques, bike safety and coordination.
All these techniques combine to help you reach the next level in cycling, and in turn, help you get the most out of the sport. This will inspire you to break through the barrier and reach your next level in cycling. Training with cycling experts will help you develop your potential.
Improve at Your Pace: up to 5 different group levels
To help further your cycling abilities, our cycling training camp operates a group system with up to 5 different group levels, depending on the number of riders in the week. Here, we place you with cyclists of similar abilities. This ensures you are not stretched too far or held back. Combine this with your Alcudia based location perfect for warm up and warm down rides, and you have the perfect environment to improve.
5 Structured Training Rides/Week
Your training camp includes five structured rides/week designed to build your cycling skills. They take place Sunday to Friday; Wednesday is a rest day. Saturday is the regular change-over day although we are flexible and shall fit in with your schedule as much as possible.
We ride together, we eat together, and camaraderie forms
Our guests tell us they make new long lasting friendships on our tours. If you are wondering if you can enjoy the training if you’re travelling alone, the answer is yes.
Riding the Endless Smooth Roads of Mallorca
Mallorca (also spelt Majorca) is blessed with endless smooth roads. This ‘paradise for cyclists’ offers challenging climbs, thrilling descents, hairpin bends, and smooth flat country lanes. The island is cycling friendly and you will meet plenty on two wheels whether it’s on a hairpin bend or enjoying a coffee after a challenging climb.
Ride the Tramuntana Mountain Range
With gems such as Sa Calobra the mountain Sir Bradley Wiggins used to train for the 2012 Olympics, and Puig Major, the highest reachable point on Mallorca, this mountain range simply has to be ridden and explored. It offers challenge, beauty, and spectacular views. It is one of the reasons Team SKY and other pro-peloton groups train here.
Relax after your Ride
After a day on the road why not wind down with a relaxing sports massage? Or go for a spa or a swim in one of the three hotel pools? Let’s not forget the after-ride walk on the beach.
Beaches, Shopping and Nightlife
When you’re not training, why not walk on a beautiful golden beach, where you will be greeted by the sea air and breeze. The blue sea stretches as far as your eye can see. You will also be in the heart of Mallorca’s shopping and nightlife districts.
Itinerary, Cycling Location, and Profile
Training Camp Location
Your Training Camp and Cycling Holiday is located on the Balearic island of Mallorca, belonging to Spain.
Mallorca is known as the Paradise for cyclists due to its weather conditions, smoth traffic free roads, mountain climbs, flat-undulating roads making it the ideal place of all types of cyclists and training needs. Puerto Alcùdia, our base, is situated on the north coast, the most picturesque part of Mallorca.
Training Camp Profile
5 structured rides/week in ability groups.
Depending on numbers, we run up to 5 different groups. The groups never exceed 14-15 riders. You will never see a SportActive group of 20 people or more on the road!
Pace: 3-6 hours per day
Lunch stop in a local bar plus coffee stops; number of stops depending on the group.
Daily distance in km: Depending on the ability of the group, up to 90 - 150 kms per day
Training Group 1 - 90-150 km depending on the route and terrain. Average speed 18-20 mph (28-32 km/h). The pace is controlled by our experienced coach to allow you and every participant to get the best from themselves. These runs suit 1st and 2nd category riders preparing for Easter racing. Nevertheless, we always enjoy a coffee stop - it is a holiday after all.
Training Group 2 - The runs will be on similar routes as group 1 above. Slightly more sedate pace - around 17-20 mph (28-30 km/h). There is always the main coffee stop where we have lunch but sometimes we have a second coffee stop on demand.
Training Group 3 - Average speed 13-16 mph (21 - 26 km/h). Distance 60-120 km and some of the more difficult parts of routes from group 1 and 2 are bypassed as to make it suitable for base level training. And as always we will include a number of coffee stops.
Training Group 4 - To coin a phrase, these do exactly what it says on the tin!! These runs are an opportunity to explore the laneways and country villages of Mallorca. The distances vary from 60 to 100 km; the biking time is between 4 to 5 hours (group 4 available in April-May and Sept.-Oct. February & March are more for confirmed cyclists looking for intenser training)

October is like summer in Mallorca with temperatures around 25-27°C! This is warmer than most summer days in Ireland or the UK. The Mediterranean Sea is still warm after the hot summer months and a post ride swim is the perfect end to the day.
This autumn, due to the pandemic, the Group Hotels Zafiro has opened only part of their hotels in Mallorca.
Therefore, we'll stay in Hotel Zafiro Can Picafort****. It offers the same quality services our clients are used to and is in the same area, the north coast of Mallorca, distant only 10 km from our usual base. This means we'll be, as before, on flat terrain, at only 15 km from the Tramuntana mountains and close to the beach.

Wow what a week!
I thought I could ride but I have to say Martin has changed my riding in so many ways . The Professionalism yet fun was more than I expected and the people on the trip were of same opinion.
So thanks to you and your Team for a great week.
John Mac - Cycling Holiday Mallorca 2017
Wow - what an experience! I have to admit to being slightly nervous before my arrival.
Was I going to arrive to find a group indie hard, ninja cyclists, that would leave me for dust every day? In fact Martin, Derek and Alfonso split the groups perfectly - enough of a challenge, but still fun.
The routes were brilliant, the guides' knowledge excellent. The bikes for hire were great and looked after perfectly by Stephen the Sport Active mechanic.
Behind the scenes (and on as many rides as the emails would allow), Flora provided all the information needed, steering us to the locations needed, providing post-ride stretching (a must to prevent seizing up) and effectively hostess for the week.
All in all, I have come away wanting another week soon. Oh and did I mention cycling with the legend that is Sean Kelly? I cannot recommend Sport Active and a Mallorca cycling week enough.
