Autumn Cycling and Walking Week, Mallorca October 2018
13th to 21st October 2018
This year we were a group of 41 members, and a mix of walkers and cyclists. For the cyclists after starting the week all together for the prolog ride to get to know each other we split for the rest of the week into 2 or three groups. We then covered the range of cycling, either enjoying some of the mauntin climbs or keeping to the rolling countryside. The walkers had one official group but a few split off for a minor walk.
Again we returned to the island of Mallorca for the Autumn walking and cycling week. Even being late October summer weather lingers longer there, nicely warm and sunny. While the walkers and cyclists are back on the island there are still plenty of beach holidaymakers, keeping the resorts busy and everything is open. It is certainly an added bonus that we relax after a ride or a walk with lazing on the beach or a swim in the sea.
We were staying at the Hotel Helios in Can Pastilla. The hotel makes itself welcome to both walkers and cyclists, including secure bike stores.... See the full article

Some photos taken on the recent cycling trip to the beautiful island of Mallorca, with its quiet friendly roads, pretty villages, good cafe stops, stunning coastline and challenging hills. Thanks to Peter Impey again for the impeccable organisation. Plans are afoot for a similar trip next year.

This was the 18th year for the Mallorca cycling week and the first to be held in the autumn. This had freed up the Spring and we went to Italy, to Riccione on the Adriatic coast, near Rimini for a joint walking and cycling week. For Mallorca this year we had also managed to tempt a number of walking members as well, please see their own report below.
It may have been October but Mallorca was hot. We had some totally sunny days but with cloud on others, plus a little rain, most of which was overnight. There was always a background warmth, so the warm clothes were never used.... See the full article
