Why pay over the odds to ride up Majorca’s only mountain ten times a day when you  can train for ten months of the year in the Central Apennines, Tuscany, on the climbs Pantani tackled to prepare for his greatest victories?

For groups of up to 8 cyclists there is airport collection in minibus with bike-carrying capacity, accommodation in the villa in Tuscany at € 30 / 35 euros pp. per night depending on size of group, and meals available on request  first and last evenings. There are guided training spins short, long, flat, hilly, mountainous and up to 4,000m of climb a day if you want it.
