itinerary

DAY 1

Arrive Ibiza

You will be met at Ibiza airport and then transferred to the Corso Hotel, which will be our base for the next three nights. Depending on your time of arrival, there will be a bike fitting in the afternoon for those hiring bikes and time for assembly for those bringing their own. We will have a briefing before we enjoy a welcome meal together in the evening.

DAY 2

First full day riding

ROUTE ONE- POU D'ES LLEO (APPROXIMATELY 60KM)

After leaving Ibiza Town the day starts with a gentle climb to a highpoint of 156m, then continues along coastal roads with opportunities for swimming. Lunch is at one of the authentic Ibiza restaurants where you will get the chance to experience the local cuisine and perhaps try one of the renowned fish stews. After lunch we head inland and cycle through picturesque towns and then it is downhill to the hotel to enjoy some well deserved rest and relaxation.

 

ROUTE TWO - PORTINAX (APPROXIMATELY 100KM)

Once out of Ibiza Town we start with a gentle climb and ride along the coastal roads to the first stop of the day at the beautiful village of Sant Carles de Peralta. From here we depart on our tough climb for the day, to the highest point of our challenge. The route is incredibly scenic, overlooking pretty coves and the beautiful Serras. We have a brief stop in San Juan de Labuja, before descending to our restaurant on Xarraca beach. There is a chance for a swim before we head back up to San Juan. After that it is a predominantly downhill route back to the hotel. After the days riding the two groups will enjoy a meal in the hotel and for those with enough energy to spare Saturday night in Ibiza awaits...

DAY 3

Second day of riding - the toughest day!

ROUTE ONE - ES VEDRE (APPROXIMATELY 60 KM)

Once on the open road we head round the coast, taking in the fantastic scenery and then stop for lunch on a beautiful beach. Our ride in the afternoon is a real treat but not without its difficulties. We pass directly through the peaks of the Southern Sierra. Once back on the southern coast we return to Ibiza Town via Sant Jordi. 

 

ROUTE TWO - CALA COMPTE (APPROXIMATELY 100 KM)

Heading out along the coastal roads we again have the chance to take in the magnificent scenery. The first rest stop is in the beautiful day of Cala d’Hort. From here we climb inland and only meet the sea again after 20km where we stop for lunch at the lovely beaches of Cala Compte. After lunch and a swim we start our afternoon’s ride with a spin through Ibiza’s second biggest town, Sant Antoni de Portmany. As we come out of the town we have a tough climb of more than 200m. After a short descent we reach our rest stop at one of the most spectacular viewpoints overlooking the coast, at Las Puertas del Cielo. For the last 20km it is mostly a fast descent back to Ibiza Town.

 

In the evening we all get together to celebrate as we swap tales of the day and contemplate what has been achieved. After a good meal together at the hotel we make our way to Pacha, perhaps the most revered nightclub in the world, where our aching muscles no longer seem to matter and we party the night away. Entry to Pacha has been kindly donated to all challenge participants by a local donor. 

DAY 4

Return Home

After breakfast you are free to relax, unwind and bask in the glory that you have just accomplished the challenging cycle ride. The event has now finished, so if you are flying home on the Monday we will arrange your transfers to the airport. If you are extending your trip you will need to arrange your own transfers and accommodation and you will be responsible for your own safety.
