We made it!
It was with welcome relief that Croston Velo trip to Majorca Sept/October 2021 went ahead and was a great success. So much so that we are planning on heading back out again this year.
To ensure it is flexible and suits everyone we are again using a company we know well, Stuart Hall Cycling, that way you can join the trip for the whole two weeks or simply fly out for a long weekend, Stuart Hall will arrange the transfers and your stay at one of the two hotels.
This last year in Puerto Pollensa most of us stayed at the Mar Senses hotel, (Adults only) ideal if you’re taking a “non cycling” partner, as the town and beachfront are much closer. For cyclists bike shops, and bars, what more do you need?
The Playa Mar Hotel is also available, which is where all Stuart Hall rides start from, this is just a two-minute ride from the Mar Senses. Generally speaking at least three ride groups are run each day and caters for all abilities. We can also request rides and Stuart will try and cater for us, we did this last year with a round trip to Sant Salvador, a great 100 mile ride that some of the ladies requested.
Generally, we meet after the rides for a few recovery ales and a chat about the rides we’ve done.
Please note that Stuart has just contacted us and said there will be a shortage of single occupancy rooms this year so it’s important to get your places booked ASAP.
Carbon bikes are available to hire or if you prefer to fly your steed out, the hotel is 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 £85/£100 per day.
The first members are flying out on Saturday 24th September and the last people are coming back Sunday the 9th 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 Mar Senses or Playa Mar hotel.
Croston Velo has a 5% discount code, Croston22 simply add this to the bottom of your booking to receive this off the final invoice.
Flights are available daily from Liverpool and Manchester via Easyjet 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 in 2021, I am sure they will still be as enthusiastic.
