You want 6 days HALF board when choosing hotel options and remember to change single room occupancy to 1 unless you have found someone to share with in which case its cheaper.

https://www.procyclehire.com/ opposite the hotel for 5 days from Fri 16th. You send them your measurements to set up the bike. We usually pick them up the evening before to save time and queuing in the morning. We store them securely in the hotel basement. You can take your own but it costs much the same. Pro Cycles also lead rides but at much racier pace than me. As the bikes don’t come with racks for my pannier I bring a frame triangle bag and some straps to carry my jumper and wind proofs.

I will sort out group save rail tickets to Gatwick and Taxi to Puerto Pollensa in February next year. Budget £50

Email me if you are interested and want more details. The longer you leave it the dearer it gets!

Its about 15 degrees so good for the long gradual climbs. You will still need some warmer clothes for those long descents though. It can still rain in March too.
