Cycling/walking combined holidays on Menorca
About our cycling/walking combined holidays on Menorca
The idea is simple. When a path is suitable for cycling, we enjoy the stunning Menorcan scenery on 2 wheels. When, however, we arrive at a more challenging part of our route, the bikes are loaded onto a van and are waiting for us at a more suitable point, where we remount and continue our journey. For example, we all like the idea of strolling gently along a sandy beach, but the idea of negotiating a bike through soft sand isn't quite as appealing. Imagine if you could arrive cycling at one end of a beach, enjoy a gentle stroll next to the water and then climb back onto the bike to enjoy some more bike riding. The idea also holds true when we have to negotiate steepish hills, stoney paths and some bumpy forest paths next to the sea. The holiday is open to anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and you won't need to bring special cycling shoes, trainers will be fine. "Wycling" as we call this holiday, is the perfect way to discover Menorca on 2 wheels or 2 feet. And that's not all. At the end of each day's activities, we enjoy a fabulous 3 course lunch at a wonderful local restaurant, with all wine included.
Menorca is an absolute unspoiled paradise, ideal for this type of holiday. During your week with us, you'll experience wonderful deserted beaches, quaint coves, uspoiled timeless villages and stunningly beautiful countryside. Menorca also has more neolithic monuments per square meter than anywhere else in Europe and we'll visit the best of these during your week with us. For a Mediterranean island, Menorca is remarkably green and some of the forest tracks resemble Devon or Cornwall, only with sunshine. Absolutely stunning for cycling or walking.
Our wycling guests will stay at the perfectly located Hotel Menorca Patricia set right in the heart of the charming town of Ciutadella. The hotel is 3 star "superior" and is only a 5 minute walk from the wonderful harbour promenade and even closer to the town centre with it's stunning range of up market bars, shops and restaurants. Ciutadella really does have to be experienced. It was the capital of Menorca under two French occupations during the 18th century and has a natural charm and beauty unlike anywhere else in the Balearic Islands. The hotel itself is family run and each of its rooms are bright, ensuite and air conditioned. There is a small gym and a lovely intimate swimming pool set in its own small courtyard.
