Following on from the success of our Croston Velo Majorca trip Sept/October 2019 we are planning on heading out there again this autumn.
To ensure it is flexible and suits everyone we are using a company we know well, Stuart Hall Cycling, and we are staying at the Playa Mar Hotel in Puerto Pollensa. That way you can join us for the whole two weeks or simply fly out for a long weekend, Stuart Hall will arrange the transfers and we will all be staying in the same hotel. They run at least three groups each day from the hotel and cater for all abilities so works for the whole club (we simply meet after the rides for a few recovery ales, much the same as returning to Croston sports club). All rides are posted in the foyer of the Playa Mar hotel and rides start from this point at 10 every morning.
Carbon bikes are available to hire at a reduced price of £15 per day for Croston Velo members or if you prefer to fly your steed out, the hotel are more than happy for you to keep your pride and joy in the room. A point to note, if you ride a top of the range machine, then these bikes will never feel like yours! If you were to hire the equivalent top end bike, you would expect to pay in the region of £45-£85 per day.
The first people are going out on Saturday 26th September and the last people are coming back Saturday 10th October, but there is no reason you can’t stay past this date.
You simply book online at https://stuarthallcycling.co.uk/package/mallorca-october
choose the dates for your stay and select the Playa Mar hotel. There are discounted ‘early bird’ prices available now until the end of July (10% off the standard price) and Croston Velo has a further 10% off due to the size of our group, simply add the booking code CV2020 into your booking to receive this off the final invoice.
Flights are available daily from Liverpool and Manchester with Easyjet, Ryanair and Jet2.
If you would like to know what the trip was like, or what to expect, talk to any of the members who went last year, I am sure they will still be as enthusiastic.
It would be great to see Croston Velo overseas again Sept/October 2020, see you there!
** Please note Stuart Hall has confirmed that no customer will lose out in the event of cancellation due to COVID-19 travel restrictions (in the event of a 2nd wave). If your holiday is cancelled you will receive a full refund or can transfer your booking to a later date (whichever suits you best – no questions asked). Please note this does not apply to your flights and each airline will have different refund policies that you should check prior to booking.
