Throughout the trip there will be opportunities to stop off and visit old local chapels or 'Hermitages'.
Day 4 - Visit the Fray Junipero museum in Petra, or climb to the hilltop Sanctuary of Bonany to enjoy splended views.
Day 5 - Take time in to visit the Coves de Campanet and in the evening enjoy a stroll along the Port Pollenca beach boulevard.
Bring cycling gear such as quick drying cycle tops, padded cycle shorts and cycle gloves. It can be hot in summer, but cool, especially at night and at the start and end of the season, so bring layers of clothing and remember a warmer jacket/fleece depending on the time of year. A raincoat is essential at all times in case of rain.
Luggage: On tour
Bring one main piece of baggage as per your airline luggage allowance, maximum 20 kg per person. Remember you are expected to carry your own luggage if using public transport so don't overload yourself. Luggage transfers between hotels are normally arranged by the hoteliers. Please note luggage transfers are restricted to 15 kg per person, any additional weight will need to be packed in your day bag or pannier bag. Mark your bags clearly and leave them at the place and time arranged with them. When travelling on public transport you should always take your luggage with you.
Included between each hotel.
On all Explore cycle holidays we strongly recommend you bring along and wear your cycle helmet. It is a legal requirement in Spain to wear a helmet that meets current safety criteria. In case of an accident resulting in personal injury, certain insurance policies are invalidated in cases where a helmet was not being worn.
Cycle glasses (to protect against dust, insects, pollen, sun etc) , cycle gloves (padded for more comfort) and a water bottle or water delivery system (eg camelback or platypus). You may choose to bring your own gel seat cover for added comfort. If a handle bar bag or pannier is not provided (check bike details) then you may like to bring a small rucksack to wear while cycling. Please carry some or all of your cycling equipment e.g. helmet as part of your hand luggage.
