Meet Bespoked – a holiday company with everything required for a perfect cycling escape

This article has been produced in association with Bespoked Holidays.

What ingredients make for an ideal cycling break? Firstly, we’d say you need a destination with great roads, better views and almost guaranteed sunshine.

Having a top guide will also help you squeeze every last drop of satisfaction from your trip – leading you to local wonders while taking the stress of organising everything off of your shoulders.

Finally, we’d also say that the quality of your time off the bike and where you stay are also crucial. After all, a cycling holiday is still a holiday, right?

Yes, you want to come home with a head full of great memories, but also a body that’s rejuvenated, revitalised and relaxed.

Which is why we’d like to introduce you to Bespoked Holidays, because they definitely get that philosophy.

Based in Mallorca (Great roads? Tick. Great views? Tick. Great weather? Tick), Bespoked is run by a British couple, David and Sarah, who know the island as well any local, and will make sure that you see a side of Mallorca that most cyclo-tourists holed up in one of the island’s mass-market hotels never catch a glimpse of.

You’ll also get to stay with the couple in their luxury villa which has three sumptuous guest rooms plus two guest bathrooms.

The villa also has free Wi-Fi, a generously stocked bar, a private swimming pool and over 2,000 square metres of terraced gardens complete with lily ponds and citrus orchards.

Stay here and literally everything is taken care of for you. Hearty, healthy breakfasts will appear every morning, while the couple can provide your evening meals on request, using only the finest, fresh locally sourced produce.

There are laundry facilities for your kit, secure storage and an on-site workshop for your bike’s needs.

There’s even a small fleet of fine bikes available to hire should you wish to travel without having to haul your own with you from the UK. All of which just leaves the riding!

The villa is located in the foothills of the Tramuntana range so is in easy reach of Mallorca’s greatest rides.

Whether you’re after a structured training camp, want to explore the island at a more leisurely pace or would prefer to do more relaxing than riding, the couple can make it happen – you just need to ask.

And should you prefer to ride without a guide, they’ll provide you with routes to follow that’ll suit your abilities while making sure you don’t miss out on the best cafés or any spectacular views.

And the price? Well, you’re in for a (nice) surprise. B&B bookings start at just £89 per person a night, based on two sharing. In terms of getting there, budget-airline bargains to Mallorca (from about £50 return) aren’t exactly rare.
