Synium sponsored “Warwickshire Lads Cycling Club” on Tour

This past weekend saw the annual Majorca cycle training camp for the Synium sponsored WLCC. Simon and Stuart (of Synium) were joined by Des McManus (MD of Mailcoms – joint WLCC sponsor and Synium partner), along with 15 other members of the club for their annual trip to the Mediterranean island famed for its quality cycling. This is the 3rd year we have been running this trip, and it has got better and more popular with each year.

Whilst Des is an Ironman World Championship contender, the rest of the team are all decent cyclists of a good fitness level – and this was definitely put to the test with some quality, and challenging rides. Day 1 was a gentle warm up 40 miles, followed by a detour into the mountains to finish – totaling 75 miles for the first day. Click Here to see the route for Day 1

Day 2 was much more challenging… whilst it was the same distance (75 miles, there was much more climbing involved – nearly 8000ft !). We had enlisted the services of Mallorca Cycle Shuttle to transfer us across to the other side of the island, and drop us off in Andtratx. From here we had a monster day of cycling to get back to our resort on the other side of the island in Port de Pollensa. This ended up being one of the greatest days cycling many of us had ever done, with some truly amazing scenery. The roads in Majorca are brilliant for cycling on, and the motorists are very tolerant of cyclist, making it a real pleasure to ride a bike. (The route for Day 2 can be seen here)

Day 3 was a more more sedate ride – starting with a flat loop our via Alcudia and then heading to the beaches and lighthouse of the Formentor peninsula. Overall, it was a superb trip which everyone really enjoyed – and I am sure we will all be back to enjoy again next week
