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 them https://www.bikebiz.com/features/huerzeler-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 https://rad-international.de/en/home/. 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!
