Steve Heapy, Chief Executive Officer of and Jet2holidays, said: “We are continually expanding our product range to offer our customers an unrivalled choice of holiday options. Active breaks are certainly seeing an increase in popularity, particularly cycling on the back of the UK’s Olympic legacy and next year’s Grand Depart Yorkshire. It therefore made sense to cater for this growing demand by launching bespoke cycling holidays to one of the most popular biking destinations in Europe.

“We’ve worked hard to develop a package which is a one-stop-shop to suit all biking styles and abilities. Our dedicated microsite not only highlights the best hotel deals but also has top route maps plus a host of handy tips and advice, including how to pack your cycle for travel. Combined with our unrivalled knowledge on what to do in Majorca when out of the saddle, we are confident our new cycling breaks are right on track.”
