Mallorca 2017 Training Camp and Vacation

Come join us for the third annual Tryon Bike Mallorca spring Training camp and vacation.



Everyone is welcome to join

Mallorca is one of the world's great cycling meccas and also very affordable.  We get to take advantage of a very strong US dollar right now.

Check it out here: http://www.seemallorca.com/

The island is both mountainous and flat, so you can vary your rides each day or get a bit of everything in one big day.

We are planning on leaving Rochester April 19, arriving April 20.  Stay for as little or as long as you like.  Les and Jocelyn will be there until May 5.

It is also a nice vacation spot for non-riders and significant others. There are lots of small villages to explore, and a nice beach right behind the hotel.  For the adventurous, you can also use this as a jumping off point to see other parts of Europe.



A cool event during the trip is the big gran fondo http://www.mallorca312.com/  Ride with 6,000 of your closest friends!


Our home base again this year will be the Ivory Playa hotel. http://www.hotelivory.com/en/   Very affordable rates and they offer a good deal on breakfast/dinner packages.  The rooms also have fully equipped kitchenettes.

Right across the street from Ivory Playa is a convenient spot to rent bikes or store your own if you want to bring your baby.  They provide 24 hour access to the bikes. www.bicimed.com

We can get a discounted rate if we book before December 21.  We will get 15% off Ivory Playa and 15% off rentals at Bicimed.

The hotel in Alcudia is quite far from the airport.  You can book a shuttle here: http://www.palma-airport-transfers.com/  Be warned, the shuttle may/will take a number of hours to get you to the hotel depending on the day/time you arrive. It stops at many hotels.  You can also take a taxi which will likely be about 100 or rent a car.  We've done both and prefer to rent a car. I'll share arrival dates and times with the group for people who want to share a taxi or rental car.
