  • Always take my own bike out to Mallorca but thinking of hiring on this occasion. I'm staying just outside of Palma (Coll d'en Rabassa), anyone got a recommendation for decent hire place?

  • Bikehead were good to us a while back. They also do delivery and pick up.

  • Max Huerzeler are by far the cheapest and have the most rental stations. Bikes are from a German brand part owned by Merida (who also part own Specialized) with Ultegra/DT Swiss/Fulcrum groups and wheels on them­er-bicycle-holidays-mallorca

  • I'm going with bikehead next year jakemcree. im over the faf of bringing my own bike when you can get awesome rentals for fuck all on the island

  • I would heartily recommend pro cycle hire in porto pollensa as the bikes they have are superb. Colnago master anyone...drool

    Also have ridiculous bike porn on the shelves as well.

  • Cheers all, Bikehead looks decent. @swedeee Yeah completely agree, love riding my own bike but it can be a real faff.

  • Really recommend these guys Really good Canyon bikes and were a fair bit cheaper than other places I came across. Based in Peguera.


    think i might go for these. seem good value

    any others I should be looking at? my godparents live in esporles so palma, soller area all good

  • Thinking about a trip to Majorca this winter and figure having some local knowledge and organisation makes sense. Anyone have any recent experience of cycling holiday companies?

  • I won an auction for a Stephen Roche trip many years ago (2012?) at CTT Champs Night and had a great time over there. It was helped by the fact I knew some of the guys and gals from Hot Chilli that were also there the same week, ie. I had a top 'rehydration' buddy in the form of a certain @fasteddy

    For a first trip it's a good idea - takes a lot of stress out of organising and minvans can get you to the good stuff quicker. I'd probably DIY it if I went again simply because I've got a feel for the island and can manage the self-supported stuff pretty well.

  • Cheers, sounds good. Although the news in the past few days has made this less appealing.

  • anyone got a recommendation for a holiday apartment in majorca (sleeping 6-8, bike storage, ideally with a pool, in the NE of the island)? I'm sure I can find a bunch on airbnb but always good to get a personal rec

  • You may well have sorted this now - but i'd try contacting BikeVelo, ask for Ciaran. I went back and forth with him on a few quotes and ended up in a 4* hotel in Pollenca for a decent price!
