Mallorca 312

This time last week, we took on the 312 cycling event around Majorca's rugged coastline, and it was an unforgettable experience. Cycling has kept me sane, providing a passion and a great way to unwind from work while being gentle on my joints. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a new hobby.

But how do you travel with a bike, you ask? It's easier than you might think! With proper planning, you can take your bike with you on your travels and have the ride of your life. Here are some things I learned from my recent trip:

🚴‍♀️First things first, finding the correct bike box is crucial. Not all packages are created equal, so research and find one that suits your bike. Reach out to local cycling clubs on Facebook and Instagram for recommendations.

🚴‍♂️I recommend driving and booking valet parking for travel arrangements to save time and hassle. And remember to book your bike on your flight when organising your travel. When you arrive, ensure you have the right car rental to accommodate your bike. Getting a bigger car may cost a bit more, but having your bike on hand is worth it. And pack your tools to reattach your pedals and chain. Double-check your insurance coverage before you go.

🚴‍♀️For the ultimate cycling experience, find accommodation that caters to cyclists. A bike lockup and tool bench can make all the difference. And for added peace of mind, invest in an AirTag to keep track of your bike's location.

🚴‍♀️Taking your bike to a cycling event may seem daunting, but trust me, it's worth it. The feeling of riding your cycle on new terrain is unparalleled.

So start planning your next cycling adventure today! And always remember, "Prior Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance." 🚴‍♀️
