Mountain Stage! Deia – Soller – Puig Major – Sa Calobra

This is one of the most sensational days of riding, and also quite challenging. This ride makes training for your Mallorca camp (as opposed to during) a necessary and worthwhile endeavor. Ride through the most striking landscapes laden with climbs and descents. Emerge finally through a rocky gap, where a 5 mile descent into Sa Calobra lies before you. Take a deep breath, release the brake levers, and go! This road is a cyclist’s dream, smooth and carefully made, with hairpins broad enough to sweep down without losing speed. The road levels out to reveal two enclosed coves surrounded by walls of rock. Let’s not forget the only way out is back up those 5 miles. Tonight is our final celebration dinner and party in Mallorca.
4 coaches plus 1 mechanic/driver at your service throughout the week. Within each training session, guests can expect variations on distance and pace to accommodate their interests and athletic abilities. Personal attention will be easy to facilitate and readily available at all times. Team Lipstick spends every moment ensuring that guests have an unforgettable experience.
