Cycling Tours Testimonials
"I cycled with Après Vélo in Mallorca in September 2018, and it was one of the most memorable riding experiences of my life. The quality of support and local knowledge provided by the Après Vélo team was absolutely outstanding. They had outstanding attention to detail and focus on rider safety. The quality of road surfaces along with the spectacular scenery made for some of the most enjoyable rides I have ever been on. I have had the good fortune of being able to ride in France, Italy, England, Ireland, Austria, South Africa, New Zealand, US, and Australia. The climbs in Mallorca provided comparable challenges to roads I have ridden in Italy. Sa Calobra is one of my favorite climbs in my entire life. The sweeping mountain descents were reminiscent of France. We experienced very little automobile traffic, and the drivers were alert and courteous to cyclists on the road.
The off the bike experience with the AV crew in Mallorca was second to none. It was a once in a lifetime treat to finish a satisfying and challenging day of cycling by riding to a secluded beach to have lunch and swim in the Mediterranean. Mallorca is the perfect combination of great cycling, amazing beaches, delicious food, quaint buildings, and magnificent churches. All of this in a laid back culture without the hustle and bustle of a big city. I highly recommend the Après Vélo cycle tour of Mallorca for some of the best cycling in the world, and for amazingly memorable experiences off the bike! THANK YOU APRÈS VÉLO!"

"I was lucky enough to ride with Après Vélo in Majorca in 2018. The Island itself has so much to offer particularly the stunning coastal areas and small ports and villages.
The rides were well planned and supported and had a mixture of challenges often ending in small ports and a great lunch location.
My wife, a non rider, came along too and was immediately made welcome and comfortable with the group and she also got to see the great sights on the island.
We both enjoyed the AV lifestyle meeting for sundowners each evening after our rides and had a lot of laughs after a solid day on the bike.
The AV team of Leonard and Naomi are sticklers for detail and ensure a great time is had by all.
We would not hesitate in recommending Après Vélo for a cycling tour/holiday!"

"I've been very fortunate to cycle in many beautiful parts of the world and when I thought it couldn¹t get any better, I discovered Majorca with Après Vélo cycle tours! The tour offered the cycling enthusiast challenge, culture, exquisite food, wine and beauty - think lush green challenging mountain climbs and sweeping descents to the coast, populated with gorgeous traditional fishing villages offering an abundance of fresh seafood. The climate - absolutely perfect! Oh, and did I mention the quality of the road surfaces, the ride support, and the respect of the drivers towards cyclists? I can't wait to return in 2020".

"It was a last minute decision that saw me joining the AV team for an amazing holiday in Majorca.
I had only a limited time available and found Leonard and his team incredibly flexible. AV tailored my trip and made sure that every day packed a punch and I saw the very best riding and culinary delights the island had to offer.
I chose to hire a bike rather than travel with mine and found the quality and fit of the bikes provided were top notch. The rides were thoughtfully chosen to showcase the full beauty of the island. At all times there was access to support vehicles which gave me the confidence to tackle every day.
The evenings were spent exploring the local restaurants and sights giving Leonard the opportunity to share his enthusiasm of the Islands culture.
It was a terrific trip and 5 days was not nearly long enough. If you are looking for a boutique Cycling trip that offers so much more, then I couldn’t recommend AV highly enough".

"My experience with the Après Vélo trip to Mallorca was truly remarkable and a memorable highlight.. and I have been to numerous cycling trips over the years. Après Vélo selected a landmark location, at the best time of the year to be in Europe, with a local team of experts that made our daily rides both challenging and rewarding, but most especially a barrel of fun.
As they say, its not just all about the cycling, it¹s the friendships, the awesome culinary adventure, the breathtaking views, the Spanish local living! I can¹t think of a better way to holiday. Thanks Après Vélo, I can't wait for the next cycling adventure".

"I can honestly say from my 30 years in the saddle, the Après Vélo cycling tour in Majorca was equally as beautiful as anywhere I’ve cycled. The rides are quite simply exquisite, and I can honestly say, many times my jaw dropped as I turned each corner. Not to mention that it’s quite challenging at the same time. The post cycling activity options with Après Vélo were amazing, with beautiful warm water and great beaches to relax if needed. The history, restaurants and shopping match the best I’ve been lucky enough visit. The Après Vélo cycling tour in Majorca is so good I have to do it again".
