Whilst most cyclists are comfortable in jumping on an aeroplane and joining a group of riders in a foriegn country, there is growing number of Cyclists who would love to cycle in the warm sun over winter or spring butare not quite comfortable either joining a group. So, why is this, well cycling in a group is often related to a group of riders racing up hills and having confidence to take it in turns and all that cycling etiquette.
Back in January 17, Mollydoo.com invited ten UK cycling clubs to take part in a familiarisation trip to the resort of Cambrils, Costa Daurada. The RDFCC was offered a place and we were delighted to take Steve Beal with us on this heavily subsidised trip.
The trip was designed to introduce UK cycling clubs to the area and also to discover the fantastic facilities that the Cambrils Sport Village offered, who are one of our key partners and who contributed so much to this event.
An addition to our short break cycling holidays, we came across this hidden gem of a destination that is typically road bike territory and also viewed as "out of reach" for a short break. We took on the challenge to package the best short break MTB experience and came up with this superb and thrilling 4 night break, including 3 fully guided MTB and high quality MTB bike rental.
Like all of our Mollydoo cycling holidays, we like to get out to the destination and test ride all of the routes, hotels, and of course the food. This ensures when our clients get out there, we have the peace of mind that they will be well taken care of and enjoy their cycling holiday.
This trip, organised by our friends at the Spanish Tourist Board, was no different. We were provided with a number of specialist tour guides, who had great knowledge of the areas we visited, and were professional and experienced as always.
