Legros Training Camp in Puerto Pollensa
Kick off the cycle season with a full training plan in Mallorca
Legros training rides : We leave as a group and we come back as a group!
The Legros Training Camp has been using our hotel as base camp for a number of years. We love their consistently high quality training programmes, the positive attitude of their team leaders and most of all, we love the cycle groups who stay with us for their cycling holidays in Puerto Pollensa.
There are 3 main groups (no larger than 20 riders each) made up of similar level cyclists; Group 1 is aimed at elite level cyclists, Group 2 is for club and sportive level cyclists and Group 3 is for leisure cyclists, but any level is welcome, from amateur to pro and you will be placed in a sub group that matches your experience and pace. Each group is then accompanied by 2 Legros team leaders who will assess each cyclist to determine which group suits them best. The lower the level, the more coffee stops you make!
And if you'd like to bring your partner along, they are welcome to stay at the hotel and enjoy a holiday in Mallorca while you get on with some serious training.
The team leaders and support riders are all pro-cyclists who have been riding for most of their lives, won many regional and national championships and know the island's roads like the back of their hands.
The Group 1 rides are specifically aimed at pro-cyclists, but there are also rides for individual cyclists and groups of every level, plus leisurely cycling trips for the fun of it.

October Training Camp
Based at Duva Hotel and Habitat, the Legros October training camp is more relaxed than the April training camp, with long steady rides, route mapping and lots of cake stops on route.
Cycling Routes from Puerto Pollensa
Cycling in Mallorca is great because the island has an early and late summer climate that you simply cannot find elsewhere, warm weather and dry empty roads, along with a varied terrain which is frankly extreme in areas, and best of all, some of the most challenging cycle routes in the world.
The Legros training camps have a selection of routes which they favour, starting with their own Legros's BIG ONE:
THE LEGROS BIG CYCLE ROUTE
It sets off from Pollensa and continues via Sa Pobla, Buger, Campanet, Moscari, Selva, Biniamar, Lloseta, Alaró, Orient, Bunyola, Col de Soller, Lluc and back to Pollensa. Alternative routes take in Coll de Soller, Sa Calobra, San Salvador, Randa and Cura Monasteries, Cape Formentor and Valldemossa.
Training begins the evening before, with a debriefing session run by the 2 group leaders and Q&A on the following day's cycle route and plan. This way the day's ride can be discussed and assessed and the following day's route can be customised to the needs and feedback from the group.
Your Accommodation in Puerto Pollensa
You will be housed in one of the Duva or Habitat self-catering apartments on the Duva grounds, where you have a buffet restaurant, snack bar, 3 pools plus an indoor heated pool, a SPA & Wellness centre and fully equipped gym (with indoor cycling room), tennis and paddle courts and cycling zone with a Pro-Cycle Hire shop, workshop/garage for bike repairs and secure bike lock-up.
Duva is located just outside Puerto Pollensa in the north of Mallorca and has established itself as a highly recommended cycling and sport hotel out of season. It is also a short walk to the beaches and cafes on the bay of Pollensa, a wonderful spot to cool down with a beer at the end of a full day of cycling.
What does the Training camp include?
Aside from the daily guided rides, each with its own 2 team leaders and briefing and debriefing sessions every evening, the price includes your stay at Duva Hotel, half board and free wifi. Half board means you have breakfast and dinner at the hotel buffet restaurant. For lunch you will be out on the road and will have to carry enough money to pay for your own drinks and snacks.
