Cycling and Yoga Holiday in  Mallorca

21st – 28th Sept  2019

Mallorca is a cycling mecca, attracting riders at all levels from beginners to the pro teams. It has something for everyone – smooth roads, respectful drivers, beautiful and varied scenery, including some stunning climbs in the Tramontana mountains.

Cycling and Yoga are complementary.  Both help to improve stamina and flexibility, core strength, lung capacity and overall mental resilience. Yoga also has real benefits which can relieve tension in your back, neck and shoulders and help with tight hamstrings and hip problems. For riders, yoga practice will improve your core strength and riding posture to ensure that you can ride for longer, more efficiently, and with greater ease and comfort.

We are:

Deborah Curran – Senior Yoga Teacher at http://yogainbromley.co.uk, and keen club rider

Jon Bentley – keen cyclist, qualified ride leader, and yogi with L plates

                                

VENUE

We have chosen the Fergus Style Pollensa Park Spa Hotel an all inclusive 4* hotel in Puerto de Pollensa . This is on the north east of the island, near to the wonderful old town of Alcudia  and just 150m from the beach. The hotel has a large pool, and a spa with a range of treatments on offer.

Outside the hotel, there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. It is easy to grab a bus, taxi or hire a car to do some sightseeing if you wish. The Tramontana mountains are no more than 10 miles away for the more adventurous cyclists, walkers and drivers amongst us.

All rooms in the Hotel are ensuite, set up as either doubles or twins. Our fully inclusive package covers the main meals, wine and spirits, soft drinks, snacks etc. The buffet style restaurant offers a great choice of high quality, plentiful and healthy meals to suit all tastes and dietary requirements.

Our package also includes a choice of daily guided rides appropriate to all ability and fitness levels.  Secure bike storage and mechanical support are also included.

Yoga classes will be held in a room that is light and airy, although we may choose to do some sessions on the beach as the sun rises over Alcudia Bay.

 

A TYPICAL DAY

After a morning yoga class to help warm up, stretch and strengthen the muscles, we will have breakfast before joining our ride groups. Leaders are experienced local and international riders, choosing routes to suit our experience and fitness, and of course the local weather conditions. We offer rides for novice cyclists who prefer a slower, comfortable pace and various longer, faster rides for more able cyclists.

There are stops for refreshments (and lunch for the more adventurous groups) before returning to the hotel.

We then offer a gentler yoga class later in the afternoon to help stretch, relax and recuperate, followed by some free time before we meet at the bar for dinner.

All rides and yoga classes are optional and partners or friends who just want to come for a holiday are welcome. The yoga classes cater for all abilities whether you are a total beginner or an experienced practitioner. There will be one free day during the week to provide everyone with an opportunity to explore the island, wander along the miles of sandy beach, or just sunbathe and relax.

COST

We have secured a very competitive price at £765 per person, based on a double or twin room. Single supplements apply (£105) and suites are available on request for families or triples.

Our price includes:-

➢ 7 nights accommodation, inclusive of all food and drink

➢ All yoga classes

➢ Daily cycle rides, with routes and speeds to suit all levels.

➢ Transfers from Palma airport to the hotel.

Road bikes, hybrids and also E- Bikes are available to hire.

Bike hire (£95 per week )and flights from the UK are not included in the price, but EasyJet, BA and others offer many daily options – and you can take your own bike of course.
