Ride with us on the island of Mallorca!
April 22-30, 2022
Want to up your cycling game while training in the sun? Join your BaseCamp coaches, fellow BaseCampers, and the Velocious team for an amazing week in one of the true cycling meccas of the world. You'll receive top-notch on-the-road coaching, along with optional educational programs to improve your cycling skills, training, and nutrition knowledge.
Shed your winter layers and spend sunny days getting a rider’s-eye view of the Tramuntana mountains, fertile valleys, and tranquil turquoise waters as you ride picturesque training roads like Sa Calobra and Puig Major. Smile as you power up one of eleven categorized climbs, cruise down a gently rolling coastal road, cycle to the historic monasteries and churches, and enjoy a visit to a picturesque old-town square for a famous snack of cafe con leche and almond cake.
When off the bike, you'll enjoy the luxury of the Viva Blue Hotel and Spa, a custom sports resort with full cycling facilities, an onsite bike shop with high-end rentals, an Olympic-sized pool, and spa and massage services. The outdoor cafe, open spa, and multiple pools are the perfect ways to unwind and recover from the day's ride. Each room is a premium suite with a separate bedroom and full living area, giving you space to spread out and enjoy.
The Coaching Support
Take your training and performance knowledge to the next level! Daily rides will feature skills and on-the-bike coaching to help you up your game, and afternoon coach corner sessions build your knowledge and answer your questions in a small group setting.
The Aparthotel Viva Blue & Spa is a paradise for triathletes and cycling sports fanatics, with premium facilities and a fantastic location next to the S’Albufera Natural Park, which has been declared of national interest by UNESCO.
The Viva Blue Aparthotel boasts Mallorca’s best-equipped cutting-edge Cycling Station, which includes a bike shop, featuring high-end Specialized and Cannondale rentals, indoor wash, repair and water stations making getting out for a ride so easy!
The Viva Blue is going to great lengths to make sure that your visit to Mallorca and their resort is safe and secure; while there we will adhere to their policies and requirements. You can read the Viva Blue's COVID-19 policies here.
Even with the best possible planning, there are always elements beyond our control like flight delays, illnesses, and family emergencies. A good travel insurance policy will reduce the stress of these situations by covering most (if not all) of their extra cost. We strongly recommend coverage specific to COVID-19. Here’s a helpful guide to finding travel insurance.
Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) is the only airport on the island, about a 50-minute drive from the camp resort. If you arrive and depart outside of our free airport transfer times, it's super simple to hire a taxi at the airport or book one ahead of time; we recommend Taxi PMI (when booking, select Playa de Muro as the dropoff location, and type Viva Blue as the dropoff address on the second screen). You can also easily rent a car.
We offer free group pickups at the airport at the following times:
Friday, April 22, 9:00 a.m.
Friday, April 22, 11:00 a.m.
Friday, April 22, 3:00 p.m.
The camp kicks off with a welcome reception at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 22, and we recommend checking in at the hotel in plenty of time to get settled first.
The camp ends Friday, April 29, after the evening social hour. We offer a free group transport to the airport the next morning as follows:
leaving the hotel at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 30
The COVID-19 Precautions
We believe ongoing safety is a partnership among our company policies, our camp leaders, and our customers. We must all work together to deliver camps in the safest of environments. If you do not feel we can adequately ensure your safety at a camp or event for any reason, we will refund your deposit and/or camp registration fees in accordance with our camp cancelation policy.
Please review our COVID-19 mission statement and policies before registering. We require either proof of vaccination or a negative test within 48 hours prior to attending camp to attend.

The Bike Options
BRING YOUR BIKE
Bringing your own bike to camp has obvious advantages in individual comfort. Before your trip, we suggest getting a tuneup at your local bike shop so it’s ready to roll for your week of riding.
Once at camp, our team will help you assemble your bike and make sure it’s ready to ride. Each day we’ll check to make sure everything is safe and ready to roll, and for major mechanical work, you can visit the onsite shop at the Cycling Station. Bring your bike in good shape, and we’ll keep it clean, lubed, and running great each day!

RENT A BIKE
The Viva Blue boasts one of the most modern cycling stations on the island the on-site Viva Cycling Station by S’Escapada, which offers a large selection of new, high-end rental bikes, including excellent Cannondale and Scott models. The cost is reasonable, but booking early is important! The process is simple: click here, select your bike, enter your measurements, and confirm your reservation (mention Velocious Cycling Adventures when asked for your booking or room number). For a more detailed tutorial, check out our guide to renting a bike in Mallorca. When you check into your room at the front desk, the staff will hand you your bike key along with your room key.
If Bikes Viva doesn't have the model you want, the Rad Salon BMC Playa de Muro shop is just around the corner and another great option.
