Mad dogs, Englishmen and Tom from Miami go riding in late August!

A very hot and pretty exhausting August on our part saw VC Ibiza take some very dedicated and sun loving “Corredors” out onto the roads and camino’s of Ibiza.  Big love goes out to the Cobbolds, Daire’s 40th Crew and big Tom from Miami. Whom through the vomit, blood, bruises, sweat and gears all got in some fantastic riding accompanied by some splendid banter… Saludos mi Amigos

A superb young rider, lets hope G has a big future ahead!

We took on some of Ibiza’s most challenging climbs and George who had just turned 14 whilst here on holiday with his family rode like a local,  making short work of everything that was put in his way!

Reminiscent of a young Pantani as G climbs on the drops

After 4 rides and over 4000 metres of climbing, we hope George is gonna hit peak form for his first race on his return to the UK. Good luck G!

Heading into the heat…

The high twenty’s temperatures of May seem to be a distant memory as island temperatures are starting to heat up in June and the landscape changes from the greens of spring to the golds, reds and browns of summer. Here is a selection of pics from some of the great rides with our lovely clients we have had thus far in June…

Opening Weekend with the boys from Bath

3 x 40th birthdays + Riding the island -  Ibiza opening weekend = Only the strong survive!

The summer season is well and truly underway and on opening weekend it was great to ride with James x 2, Matt, Fari and Ed although it was a shame the infamous Bryan never made it out on to the tarmac! We rode on Friday to the West and Saturday to the East and in between lets just say the fellas enjoyed themselves in what sounded like some rather fun off the bike activity! Nice one chaps see you again soon!
