The Mallorca Escape - May 2024
ESCAPE DATES : MAY 5TH TO 11TH 2024
The Mallorca Escape - Supported by Basso
If the idea of escaping the cold winter to a warm and sunny climate to ride bikes, drink coffee and climb epic mountains sounds like your thing, then the BoC Mallorca Escape is for you.
The small island of Mallorca is a firm favorite among amateur and pro cyclists for many reasons. The roads, the climbs, the weather, the cafes, bars and restaurants, the chance to see and ride with pros year round... And that's without mentioning Sa Calobra, one of the most fun climbs, and descents, in all of Europe.
The BoC Mallorca Escape is your chance to ride the very best of Mallorca, supported by the Band of Climbers team. Together we'll climb every epic ascent, but also discover some hidden roads, climbs and towns you may never have discovered solo.
Fuelled and Ready
The BoC Mallorca Escape is based at one of Mallorca's most loved cycling hotels, the 4-Star Duva Aparthotel and Spa. Your stay on the Escape includes full use of the hotel's 3 swimming pools, gym, spa, and of course, breakfasts and dinners each evening.
With support from our nutrition partners OTE sports, your place on the Escape also includes all the energy bars and gels you need to get you over Mallorca's greatest climbs.
