Was an amazing event this year. Seriously tempted by a reprise next year (the year I said I'm not going long )

There is loads of accommodation in the area so no issues there. I did it in 2011 and arranged my package through Thomson and brought my own bike with me. I had a private taxi transfer booked with them and they made sure the taxi was big enough to take a bike box. Others I met went the budget airline, car hire and book hotel direct route which would probably be the way I would go now. I have taken my bike to Mallorca quite a few times with Jet2 and easy jet and never had any problems.

I am going. May 8 to May 13. Probably a bit early in the year in training terms in reality but has got me out a bit before France at the end of June.

I only have a road bike with clip-on bars, I think looking at profile that there is quite a lot of the course where TT bike would go well. Cannot recall what was favoured on the video. I do not think you can take gas canisters on the plane. At most places there are track pumps but I will probably take one.

See you there

IF you're comfy downhill on it (And there's no reason why you shouldn't be) the you really should take the TT. The course definitely merits it and there's only one long downhill where a road bike would be its equal.

Take track pump in your bike box and buy CO2 from the expo - there are often stalls that offer a swap for a gel after the race if you don't use it (knowing you can't fly it back).
