Mallorca Cycling Training Camps

Le Domestique Tours professionally coached Mallorca cycling training camps are the antithesis to the pile them high, sell them cheap cycling training camps found elsewhere in the market. Built around professionally coached Masterclass sessions designed to improve your knowledge and skills, stunning rides that give you the opportunity to put these skills into practice and boost your performance, superb private accommodation located in the lanes between Pollenca and Port de Pollenca isolated from the all-inclusive hotels and resorts and bespoke catering from our in-house professional chef, our Mallorca cycling training camps are second to none.

Our Mallorca training camps are very popular, with both Scheduled and Private dates available, however if you wish to have us tailor the perfect package for your group through our Bespoke service, we would be happy to do so. You can learn more about our Bespoke service by visiting the Bespoke page of our website.

Full details of our Masterclass sessions and our Mallorca Cycling Training Camp’s itinerary can be found in the Itinerary and FAQ sections below, but if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

“Excellent Mallorca cycling training camps for getting in some early season quality miles…each day was well structured and van support which was a great benefit especially on the days with varying weather conditions when additional clothing and food was always close at hand if and when required.”

Ken, Ontario Canada – 2015

“I was looking for something special to celebrate my 50th birthday and I came across the Le Domestique website. So my wife and I took the plunge. Right away we challenged Rob and Riley with our lost luggage problem but they handled it in stride by hauling us back and forth to the airport at the beck and call of Iberia Airlines. We were charmed by our posh villa location. They had the rides scouted and mapped so I didn’t have to worry about anything but pushing the pedals and enjoying the scenery. Somehow they had even managed to find us compatible tour mates. The other riders were well matched for ability and personality…a factor that markedly raised the enjoyment of the trip. When the rain came, Rob was able to alter the plans on the fly and provide us with safe and reasonable alternatives. We were able to get a good workout on the climbs and then safely shuttle the descent to make it home alive to fight another day. It was wonderful to come home every day to expertly crafted meals using the best of the local gustatory treats. Breakfast and coffee waiting every morning sure felt luxurious as well. Finally, I need to mention the coaching. It was lovely to have experts on hand to help unravel the mysteries of training, rest, and nutrition. Going down the mountain became even more carefree when I put the tips into practice. All in all, I couldn’t have made a better choice for my special 50th birthday cycling holiday. I am very grateful to Rob, Riley, and all the support staff for presenting us with such a fine product!”

John and Kim Scheub, Massachusetts USA – 2015

“Cycled some great routes with a small group of riders, all fully supported. Accomodation was top quality and we were defintely well fed! Also found Rob’s masterclasses useful. All in all a great week on, and off the bike.”

John Love, Berlin Germany – 2015

  • Supported Riding
    • One of the main benefits of choosing Le Domestique Tours, is our pro-level supported riding service, which is an integral part of all of our packages. However, unless you have ridden with us before, it can be difficult to understand the benefits of this service, so for more information please follow this link http://ledomestiquetours.co.uk.88-208-244-163.jago-staging.com/what-is-supported-riding/
    • We do not enforce an average speed requirement during our tours and will always strive to allow riders to cycle at their own speed (our two van support policy gives us the ability to provide our incredible supported riding service for 99% of the riders on our tours), however if there is a large speed differential between you and the rest of the group, we may require you to depart earlier/later, miss extended stops or in very extreme circumstances, complete sections of the route in the LDT support van.
    • Equally, if you are an extremely fast rider in comparison to the others in your group, or someone who does not like to stop during the course of your riding, we may have to adapt the level of support that we can provide for you. If you are at all concerned about your ability level (whether quicker or steadier than average) prior to signing up to this tour, please contact us in advance of booking and we will provide further guidance.
    What are the LDT Masterclasses?

    Across the week we will be running optional masterclasses that focus on the following key areas:

    • Descending – our descending masterclass will help you develop your descending technique, resulting in a far more enjoyable, and above all safe, experience when the?road heads down. Building on our vast experience of descending in the mountains we will be holding both theory and practical descending masterclasses.
    • Nutrition – with the proliferation of energy products, it can be difficult to cut through the marketing nonsense and focus on the key facts. We’ll explain the important concepts in an easy to understand format, while debunking a few myths along the way. These classes are invaluable for building a nutrition plan that ensures your training pays off on your event day.
    • Building a training plan – the benefits of following a training plan are huge, but very few riders understand how to build an effective plan based on their goals. We will give you all the tools you need to do so, enabling you to focus on getting the maximum benefit from your training time rather than wasting time on gimmick plans.
    • Multi-day events– for those riders using the camp as a training tool for one of our multi-day tours such as the Raid Pyrenean or King of the Mountains, we will discuss riding and recovery strategies to ensure you are in top form throughout these challenges. Nobody is better placed than us to deliver this advice.
