Thanks for all this Graeme,

Has anyone booked yet? If so, which hotel did you choose? I'm about to ring Karen, but don't want to be Billy-No-Mates in the different hotel from everyone else!

Hi folks,

Dates looked at are Saturday 2nd or Sunday 3rd of May 2020

Jet 2 have daily flights from either Glasgow or Edinburgh

There is an alternative Easy Jet but they only fly Tuesday and Saturdays from Glasgow and Edinburgh ( no flight details released yet for May 2020 )

I have detailed provisional cost from the Jet2.com web site however you may wish to use Karen Green from Hays travel ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 02921 432167 )who I have spoken to about doing this for the club (they are ATOL protected ) and she would be willing to beat the Jet 2 prices and provide groups or individuals with packages. A few members of the club have used Karen to book a number of holiday packages before and I am sure she will give you the best price possible. (there are low deposit options with Karen and ability to pay off the balance as you go same as Jet2 offer)

Details of some accommodation ( Karen may be able to offer good accommodation in addition to ones detailed below )

Puerto Azul Suite Hotel Puerto Pollensa (hotel we have stayed previously for last 4 years half board and has its own on site mechanic and bike storage.

www.jet2holidays.com/balearics/majorca/puerto-pollensa/puerto-azul-suite-hotel?ds_rl=1206481&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7-r3tY_I4wIVSrDtCh3jKgl-EAAYASAAEgIST_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

next door to AZUL

www.jet2holidays.com/beach/balearics/majorca/puerto-pollensa/mar-senses-puerto-pollensa?holiday=946&duration=7&airport=9&date=03-05-2020&occupancy=r2c&board=2&iflight=640367&oflight=640356&rooms=44259>msearchtype=Search+Results

Price around £716 mark From either Glasgow or Edinburgh less discount half board and all transfers (bike would be extra) but there is a less £60 rain check voucher to be applied per booking.

Cheaper options

£525 per person mark (including flights)

Self catering apartments

www.jet2holidays.com/beach/balearics/majorca/puerto-pollensa/aparthotel-flora?holiday=185&duration=7&airport=9&date=03-05-2020&occupancy=r2c&board=4&iflight=640367&oflight=640356&rooms=26368>msearchtype=Search+Results

across the road from the AZUL Suite

www.jet2holidays.com/beach/balearics/majorca/puerto-pollensa/hobby-club-apartments?holiday=28&duration=7&airport=9&date=03-05-https://www.jet2holidays.com/beach/balearics/majorca/puerto-pollensa/hobby-club-apartments?holiday=28&duration=7&airport=9&date=03-05-2020&occupancy=r2c&board=4&iflight=640367&oflight=640356&rooms=10445>msearchtype=Search+Results2020&occupancy=r2c&board=4&iflight=640367&oflight=640356&rooms=10445>msearchtype=Search+Results

Bed and Breakfast Apartments

Close to the AZUL

www.jet2holidays.com/beach/balearics/majorca/puerto-pollensa/romantic-hotel?holiday=319&duration=7&airport=9&date=03-05-2020&occupancy=r2c&board=1&iflight=640367&oflight=640356&rooms=18489>msearchtype=Search+Results

There are other apartments within Puerto Pollensa but I have tried to keep it central to the AZUL as in the past the rides have set off from here every morning.

I would suspect that Jet2 will have a sale discount shortly and no doubt Karen Green will be able to offer really competitive prices especially of there is a group wanting to share an apartment or rooms.

Bike Hire:

There are number of options and places to hire from usually around the 100 euro mark for the week for a decent bike tailored to your specification or like. ( there are some top end bikes to hire including electric E Bikes road or hybrid versions).

I can detail some hire places later and there also organised drop off trips allowing you to cycle back from but I would book them nearer the time based on the weather forecast !!

So as they as the decision is yours !!

Once you have committed post your updates and let’s get a good numbers next year with a variety of groups

Any questions drop me a message I am looking at Sunday the 3rd of May personally to go out.

Hi all,

In terms of hotels, despite the off-putting name, I've used the Hotel Romantic the last two years and it seems to come in cheaper than the Puerto Azul by a fair bit. The rooms and food are fine, and the location is excellent - right on the sea front, and just a few min walk from Tolo's and some other bars/restaurants on the sea front. It's also a no-kids hotel, if that swings things one way or another for anyone!

I fancy going back to Port de Pollensa again next year but not sure what timings I'd prefer yet.

Cheers

Dave

If you can add you name to the list and there is no commitment at this stage only looking for rough numbers to gauge interest,

I'm flexible with dates so 3rd May is fine for me.

Will have to work out finances before committing though, big year next year.

Hi Folks,
I been asked by a number of the members to post dates for next year in Majorca 2020.
There was a number of us back to Puerto Pollensa again this year over the course of April / May from the club.
The group I went out with was a week later than usual 5th of May, as in the previous years we had experienced a mixed bag of weather during April. I have to say this year the decision to go later paid off in terms of the weather with no rain and great temperatures.
It would be great if we can get the numbers up next year in Majorca so that there can be a couple of groups catering for all abilities should anyone want to ride as part of group ride ? ( there is no pressure to ride with group if you don't want to but some like the company and security as well the local knowledge of routes).
My own preference would again be travel out weekend of 3rd of May (Sunday 7 days) in order to try and secure the better weather again plus avoid some of the big events such as 312 or Triathlon. ( I know some of you might want to take part in the 312 etc. but it makes it one of the busiest times for cyclists on the island and higher hotel prices).
There are number of hotels and apartments other than the Azul Suites in Puerto Pollensa so there is no necessity for anyone having to stay there, however it has to be said we have had no complaints about the facilities and accommodation over the last five years of staying there.
Can I ask for show of your interest by posting your name below for that week in May 2020 and all being well I will post up some accommodation links so everyone is free to make the mind up re accommodation and bike hire if required. (this may also help identify others wishing to room share or apartment which helps keep the individual cost down) .
If there is an over whelming desire to go in April please feel free state and alternative date but based on past experience May seem to be slightly more predictable with better weather than April.

Thanks for posting this up Graeme as Sandra and I are interested but our commitment depends on two things, firstly whether Sandra can get the time off work and, secondly, the dates of Alex's exams. Won't be until nearer Christmas that we will know for sure! Also, going later is no guarantee of better weather. We have just come back today and had temperatures of no higher than 19 degrees, very windy in the afternoons and 1 ½ days of rain out of the five we were there! I think it's pot luck with the weather these days I'm afraid.
