I was delighted to have been offered my first taste of Majorcan cycling, courtesy of the good people at Jet2 Cycling Holidays. My only concern was that, in the two days of riding they had planned for me, would there be any mountains?

I was to be riding in a mixed group, some in good shape, others less so, and would any share my daft keenness for riding uphill? Surely not. Pre-trip, I had decided that if neither day’s itinerary met my hopes then I would form a splinter group and head off solo in search of altitude.
