Frequently Asked Questions

Most common

What's the minimum level of fitness required to participate?

Our cycling holidays are for all types of riders, but it is recommended to meet some minimum fitness standards, as you’ll risk not getting the most from this experience. As long as you ride your bike regularly, at least 3 days a week (at least 6 hours total), and are comfortable with rides of about 90km on hilly terrain, and up to 120km on a long day, you are good to go. It will be challeging, for sure, but that's why you are coming, don't you?

Will I be able to keep up with the team?

Answer is simple : YOU ARE THE TEAM! We will always adjust to your level so nobody will get left behind. Ever. We welcome riders with a wide range of experience and abilities. The only requirement is a strong passion for cycling and the drive to improve. Any concerns? Email us!

What's the average level of participants?

That's a tough question. We have been welcoming riders ranging from 2.5w/kg up to 5.5w/kg. We manage to all ride together, as a team. On the flat sections, strongest riders lead the group. While on hills, each rider will climb at his/her own pace, and we regroup at the top.

Am I too old for this?

There is no age to treat yourself and have fun! Our cycling trips are for everyone. To date, we have welcomed cyclists from 21 to 70 years old. Any concerns? Email us!

Can I come with my husband/wife who doesn't cycle?

Yes, there are options for non-riders on certain dates but we can not accommodate children. If you would like more information on this, please consult our non-riders package.

Is it a mixed training camp?

Yes, of course. To date, 24% of participants have been women.

What language will be spoken at the camp?

Riders come from everywhere. The staff speaks fluent English, French, and Spanish. The coaching workshops will be held in both English and French, and all Powerpoint presentations will be available in the two languages as well.

Are all your cycling holidays the same?

Overall, yes! Our services are always the same regardless of the camp. Only some "special" camps differ slightly from others, such as the one we organise for young riders (16-23) during summer with adapated distances and workshops to their age.

How many people will I ride with?

To ensure personalized coaching and build a strong team spirit over the week, our training camps are limited to 10 people. So we will never be more than 10 on the road, including our Ride Captain.

What if I have to cancel my trip?

Please review our Cancellation Policy for more details.

How far in advance should I book?

The earlier, the better! In 2022, our camps sold out about six months in advance! Last minute bookings are, sadly, very rarely possible due to the lack of size/bike availability from our bike supplier. To allow us to book a villa adapted to the right number of participants and guarantee the availability of bikes/kits, registration is closed two weeks before the start of the camp.

Is there a minimum of riders required for a camp?

Our cycling holidays are guaranteed as soon as we have ONE reservation confirmed. We never cancel a camp because there are not enough participants, that's our guarantee.

Is there a discount for groups?

Yes, groups of 6 or more people (non-riders included) can receive a 5% discount. Contact us for more information.

Is there a minimum age required to participate?

Only adults of 18 and older can participate to our cycling camps. For young riders (16-23) who want to progress and learn, we organize during summer a development camp dedicated to them, with adapated distances and workshops. Contact us for more information.

Level of Fitness & Rides

What's the minimum level of fitness required to participate?

Our cycling holidays are for all types of riders, but it is recommended to meet some minimum fitness standards, as you’ll risk not getting the most from this experience. As long as you ride your bike regularly, at least 3 days a week (at least 6 hours total), and are comfortable with rides of about 90km on hilly terrain, and up to 120km on a long day, you are good to go. It will be challeging, for sure, but that's why you are coming, don't you?

What's the minimum FTP required to participate?

There is no minimum FTP required. But if you know your FTP number, we would say by experience that a minimum of 2.7w/kg is what you need to be able to complete the six stages of our cycling camps.

How many kilometers will we ride per day?

Here, we prefer to talk in hours instead. Rides last between 3 and 5 hours, with one coffee/recovery ride at the middle of the week. Do you think it’s too much for you? Don’t forget that with massages, nutrition, coaching and the fact that we take care of everything else, getting back on the bike each morning will be easier than what you have ever imagined!

What's the average level of participants?

That's a tough question. We have been welcoming riders ranging from 2.5w/kg up to 5.5w/kg. We manage to all ride together, as a team. On the flat sections, strongest riders lead the group. While on hills, each rider will climb at his/her own pace, and we regroup at the top.

I am not a pro nor a racer, can I still join?

Of course! Do we have to be Lewis Hamilton to enjoy driving a fast car? Or Tadej Pogačar to enjoy riding a fancy bike? Our cycling holidays are for every riders! No matter who you are, how old you are, or how fast you are, you deserve the best. This is what we’ll give you.

I am a strong rider. Will it be challenging enough?

Don’t worry, our Ride Captain will make it tough(er) for you if this is what you want! Mallorca offers a lot of climbs where you will be able to train hard and if you want to push your limits further. The riders who reach the summit first will turn back down to catch the last ones. Nobody stays inactive at the top. It means some extra miles for the fastest riders and some support for the slowest ones in the last part of their ascents.

How are the rides organized?

Every morning at the briefing each rider will receive personal goals for the ride to come based on his/her abilities and level of fatigue. We all take the road together, as a team. On the short (rare) flat sections, strongest riders will lead the group. On hills, each rider will climb at his/her own pace with a powermeter. The riders who reach the summit first will turn back down to catch the last riders. Nobody stays inactive at the top. It means some extra miles for the fastest riders and some support for the slowest ones in the last part of the ascents.

What kind of preparation do you recommend?

With 500km in six days, and lots of climbing, our cycling camps are challenging. To enjoy it, we definitely recommend you to ride your bike and train beforehand. It will help you to get most it, and have fun when you will climb some of the most spectacular climbs in the cycling world. If you wish to build fitness and arrive at the camp at your peak level, we have designed a 14-week pre-camp training plan, adapted to all levels and lifestyles, in partnership with Trainerroad.

Bikes

Is the bike hire included in the price?

Yes it is! Do you really think that Tadej Pogačar has to travel (or pay) with his own bike when he comes to train in Mallorca with his team?

What bike will we use?

In 2023, we will be riding either on Trek Emonda SL6 PRO (7.3kg carbon bike, equipped with Shimano Ultegra groupset and Aeolus PRO 3 carbon wheels), or Canyon Ultimate SL8 (7.4kg carbon bike, with disc brakes, equipped with Shimano Ultegra groupset). More options (Trek Domane, Trek Emonda SLR 8, disc brakes, e-bike) are also available with extra costs. Find more information here : www.sacalobra.cc/bikes/

Do you provide pedals?

No! There are too many types of pedals/cleats, therefore we ask each rider to bring their own pedals and cycling shoes.

How are the brakes set up?

All our bikes are set up under European Standards. The front brake is controlled by lever on the left hand side of the handlebar, and the rear brake by the right hand lever.

Can I bring my own bike?

Yes, you can. However, we recommend for you to ride on our full carbon bikes. Travelling with a bike is expensive and risky, bike can be lost, damaged or delayed. And don't worry about your riding position, our mechanic will reproduce the exact same settings you are used to at home (saddle height, angle, setback, etc), thanks to our Bikesettings.com tool.

Is there a discount for bringing my own bike?

Yes. A discount of 80 euros will be applied if you come with your own bike. However, we do not assume responsibility for the safety of or damage. You will also be responsible for any spare parts that may be used during the camp if you decide to come with your own bike.

Can I bring my own powermeter?

If you would like to bring your powermeter, we’re able to accommodate a few options. For crank arm powermeters, please verify the crank arm length is the same as on the bike hire and make sure it is Shimano compatible (mostly Stages brand only). We can also install pedal systems (Garmin, Assioma, Powertap, etc). If you have any questions, please contact us.

What frame size would you recommend for me?

With the registration form, we will send you a complete sizing guide to help you to pick the proper size/frame, based on several measurements (rider height, inseam, saddle height).

Can I participate with an e-bike?

Yes, for those who need a bit of assistance in the mountains, we have an e-bike option (Trek Domane+ LT) available with extra costs (+36€ for the week). Find more information here : www.sacalobra.cc/bikes/

Do you provide a saddle bag?

No, but you won't need one! Our team car will follow us on the road everyday. If you have a puncture, our mechanic will be there. Just like the pros!

Kits

What kit or accessories should I bring?

We provide the following items to each rider : bib shorts (bib tights in winter), short sleeved jersey (long sleeves in winter), socks and helmet. However, depending on the period you come to Mallorca, we recommend for you to bring some extra warm clothes like a rain jacket, arm warmers, or some winter clothes. Black items and accessories are prefered. For more information, consult our How to Pack page.
IMPORTANT: Bike, helmet, GPS, and heart rate monitor must be returned in good conditon at the end of the week, so please make sure to take care of them!

Is the kit included in the price of the camp?

Yes, bib shorts, a jersey, and a pair of socks are included (worth 190 euros). You can also purchase other items (gilet, base-layer, etc) on site, at the wholesale rate.

Can I get a winter kit instead?

Yes, if you prefer to ride with tights and/or a long sleeve jersey, you can decide at the beginning of the camp. There is an extra cost of 20 euros for the long sleeve jersey, and 10 euros for winter tights. Note: once your choice is made, it won't be possible to switch the kit.

Can I buy more kit?

You will be able to buy more items (except helmets) at the end of the training camp, at our supplier rate. Find more information on our page dedicated to Club Advantages: www.sacalobra.cc/club-advantages/

Can we buy the kits without participating in the camp?

No, our kits are exclusively reserved for the riders who have participated in one of our camps.

Is the kit good quality?

We use the same Gobik kits as the professional Inoes Grenadiers Team of Tom Pidcock and Geraint Thomas. The kit is also guaranteed for one year by Gobik and made 100% by hand, here in Spain, unlike many brands that relocate their production to China. A real guarantee of quality, don't you think?

How much does the kit cost?

We sell the kit at the same price as we buy it (see details here). We do not make any profit. The goal is to see you wearing our kit at an unbeatable price.

massages

How many massages will I get?

You will have a massage after each ride, like a pro!

How long do the massage sessions last?

Each massage last about 20 minutes. We focus on the lower part of the body obviously, the most stressed in cycling, but do not neglect the back, neck or arms, in case of pain or a fall, which unfortunately happens sometimes.

Do I have to be completely undressed?

No, you can leave your underwear on.

Will the massage hurt?

No, a good massage, even a deep tissue one, should always stay in the “feels good” range. We have a long experience in sports massages and will be able to recommend what suits you best, based on your soreness and the way your body responds to treatment. Also, let us know if the pressure needs to be changed (lighter or deeper). If something is not working for you, speak up!

How much does a massage cost?

Nothing! Daily sports massages are 100% included in the price of our bike camps.

Your stay

Where is the Villa located?

We use different villas depending on availability and number of participants. They are all situated in the same area, on the best part of the island: in the Serra de Tramuntana, in Pollença, or in the area around.

Are airport transfers provided?

Yes, we will pick you up at the airport on the first day and drive you back on the last day. Free of charge!

What time are the shuttles to/from the airport?

We usually run two shuttles on arrival day. One early in the afternoon, one later on that day. The exact time of these shuttles will be determined to group the maximum number of riders. If you arrive early in the morning, and prefer to explore Palma instead of waiting at the airport, we can pick you up in town in the afternoon.

For departures, we run two shuttles to the airport in the morning. Again, the exact times will depend on the flights of all participants. If you have a late flight, we can drop you off in Palma instead, so you can explore the city on your last day before heading to the airport, by taxi or by bus (not included).

Can I upgrade to single room occupancy?

Yes. Our villas are equipped to accommodate all riders and staff together, two per room. However, a Single Room Occupation option is possible if you prefer to have your own room, depending on availability (check before booking). An additional cost of 599 euros for the week will be applied.

I am a woman. Would I have to share my bedroom with a man?

No. We always make sure that a woman and a man don't have to share a room, except if they come as a couple, even if you have not booked a single room.

What meals are included?

Three meals a day are included: breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the first day, arrival day, only dinner is included. On the last day, the departure day, only breakfast is included.

I am vegetarian, is that a problem?

Plant based athletes are more than welcome at our training camps, we always have plenty of vegetables available. Just let us know at least two weeks prior to your arrival if you are on a specific diet.

Are there different menu options?

No, we only have one menu for the entire team. We can adapt the menu a bit if you have food allergies, but can't have two separate menus. Make sure to get in touch before booking if you are on a specific diet, to make sure it's possible or not.

Are local tourist taxes included?

Yes, they are! Do you really think that Wout van Aert pays his tourist taxes himself when he comes training with his team? 😉

Can I wash some clothes on site?

Yes, the villa is equipped with a washing machine. The cycling kits are washed after each ride, and you can also wash personal clothes.

Can I attend the activities but stay at alternative accommodation?

No. Being part of the team, on and off the bike, is something that really matters to us.

Is there any activity planned for non-riders?

There are no extra activities included in the non-riders package, except for one relaxing massage during the week. We encourage you to plan on some time spent independent from the group during daily rides and we will be more than happy to assist you by providing recommendations (car rentals, spa, golf, hiking, etc). As you can understand, the staff will focus on supporting riders along the week, so it's important to plan your options before the camp as much as you can.

Can I come with my children?

No, we can not accommodate children. And the number of non-riding partner is limited to one person per rider.

Trip preparation

Is there a preferred time to arrive and leave?

On the first day, we usually don't have access to the villa before 2pm. Therefore, it's better to have a flight that arrives between 11am and 5pm, to make sure you don't have to wait too long, and don't miss the introductory briefing. On the last day, we recommend to book a flight between 11am and 3pm, since we have to check out the villa by 10am. Try not to book a very early flight, so you don't have to wake up too early to be at the airport on time. If you are unable to find flights in these time frames, please get in touch so we can find a solution.

What time are the shuttles to/from the airport?

We usually run two shuttles on arrival day. One early in the afternoon, one later on that day. The exact time of these shuttles will be determined to group the maximum number of riders. If you arrive early in the morning, and prefer to explore Palma instead of waiting at the airport, we can pick you up in town in the afternoon.

For departures, we run two shuttles to the airport in the morning. Again, the exact times will depend on the flights of all participants. If you have a late flight, we can drop you off in Palma instead, so you can explore the city on your last day before heading to the airport, by taxi or by bus (not included).

How should I pack?

A list of recommended items will be provided in advance of the event, including shoes and pedals of course, saddle if you love it, sunglasses, etc. Everything should fit in a small carry-on bag since we thought about almost everything else! We said "Like A Pro" didn't we? For more information, consult our How to Pack page.

Are flights included?

No, flights are not included. Guests must book their own flights. The closest airport is Palma. However, our experienced staff can assist you on finding the best option.

How much do flights to Mallorca usually cost?

Flying to Palma is easy and inexpensive. Most European airports have daily flights, that are between 50 and 100 euros roundtrip if you book early. Find more information here : www.sacalobra.cc/flights-mallorca/

Do I need special insurance?

We recommend that all participants have comprehensive travel insurance as well as specialised cycling insurance to cover the bike hire and personal accident and injury.

Should I come with my own energy bars/drinks?

No! We provide energy drinks and bars for every single ride, as much as you need. And that's not all, our energy bars are 100% homemade without conservatives!

What weather should we expect in Mallorca?

With 300 days of sun per year, Mallorca is by far, the best destination to ride your bike in Europe, whatever the season. This is however not a reason not to pack some accessories to face more difficult conditions or to remain hot on the descents, in particular if you attend one of our winter cycling trips like long-fingered gloves, rain jacket, thermal jacket, arm/leg warmers, shoe covers, winter collar, hat). It is better to be too careful than not enough. For each camp, we give you a trend on the site, with the average temperatures (morning and afternoon) observed the previous year at the same period. Also remember to check the weather forecast a few days before your departure to avoid any (bad) surprises.

Cycling trips in Alps

Why are the Alps more expensive than Mallorca?

The costs of organization are completely different in the Alps than in Mallorca. The chalet we rent is a lot more expensive (but also super luxurious with a jacuzzi and a sauna), the cost of travel for the staff and all the equipments is high from Mallorca to Morzine, and we will also have more staff working in the Alps, including a second guide on the road. It's a different experience.

What's the minimum level of fitness required to participate?

This camp will be a bit more difficult than the ones we organize in Mallorca. With some of the most incredible climbs of the Tour de France, it will be a challenging and rewarding week on the bike. Lots of elevation also means lots of descents. Therefore, it is important to feel comfortable downhill as well.

What's the minimum FTP required to participate in the Alps?

There is no minimum FTP required. But if you know your FTP number, we would say by experience that a minimum of 2.8w/kg is what you need to be able to conquer the most famous climbs of the Tour de France.

Will there be different group levels available?

Depending on the level of participants or fatigue, we will be able to split into two different group levels (two different paces), each group led by one of our two guides.

Can we change group during the week?

Of course! You will be able to change group every day, depending of your level of fatigue.

What gearing would you recommend?

To be able to tackle long and steep climbs, we recommend you to use mountain gearing for this cycling trip, with a 50/34 compact chainring, and an 11/30 or 11/32 cassette.

Where will we stay?

Our camp base this week will be located in Morzine, in the French Alps. Having hosted the Tour de France more than 20 times since 1975, Morzine is the ideal place for road cycling, offering an easy access to some of the most legendary climbs of the Tour de France, like Joux-Plane, Encrenaz, Joux Verte, Col de la Ramaz!

Others

What's the program of the coaching sessions?

The workshops will have a different subject each day, adapted to the knowledge of the riders. Here is a non exhaustive list of the subjects we will discuss:

  • What is Power?
  • Functional Threshold Power (FTP)

Do I have to come with a team?

No, you don't! Here, you will meet people like you, coming from all over the world to share their passion for cycling, wearing the same jersey, motivating each other to push your limits ever further, and experience a real team spirit. The Sa Calobra Cycling Club is a team, your team!

What if it rains?

Even though Mallorca averages 300 days of sun per year, you may experience a day of bad weather. If we can not start a bit later to avoid the rain, we will organize an indoor activity on TrainerRoad or Zwift to make sure that you will not lose a single day of training during the week! But in four years, we never had to cancel a ride…

What if I am tired one day?

Our coach will give personalised goals to each rider every day based on your abilities to avoid over-training. However, you can of course decide to stay at the villa one day or if you feel exhausted during a ride, our support vehicle will be there to assist you.
