7th to 14th March 2015 Ponent Mar, Palmanova, Mallorca, Spain
We are delighted to announce our warm weather cycling training partner – Stephen Roche’s Cycle Training Camps in Mallorca.
Cyclists have been using Mallorca as a training base for the past 50 years. With its great quality roads and dramatic ascents and scenery, it is perfect for an active holiday. Plus it’s only a 2 hour flight from the UK.
The company based in Palmanova, Mallorca was set up by legendary former Tour de France winner Stephen Roche and is still owned and operated by Stephen and his team.
There are 4 different levels of groups riding out each morning, to provide cyclists of all ages and levels of ability with the opportunity to take part in cycle camps and holidays that were fully guided and supported by a professional team of staff.
David Williams, Stephen Roche’s Head Ride Captain, will host the 2015 Human Race Training Camp on the beautiful island of Mallorca, it will be held from 7th – 14th March 2015. This is the perfect chance to get some top quality training on some of the same roads used by pro teams like Team Sky to ensure you are fully prepared for your event. This designated week will allow you to meet other riders who are also gearing up to take part in Human Race events during 2015. Plus, Stephen has already promised that he will attend the camp on at least one of the days to join you on a ride so this is your chance to ride with a cycling legend!
If you can’t make this date you can also enjoy a visit at any other time of year (see further down for details).

Mallorca is a magnificent destination with a climate ideal for your daily rides and offers a wide variety of cycling terrain, from impressive stretches of coastline to the many challenging ascents and fast descents of the Tramuntana Mountains. Mallorca has become so accustomed to having cyclists on their quiet roads over the years it really is a completely different cycling experience to the UK.
