Cap de Formentor 2 hrs 12 mins, 837 metres of climbing, 43km

Difficult to pick out highlights from the tour, but the final day was breath-taking and for me was my favourite moment. Still plenty of climbing to get through, but surprisingly we all summoned the energy to finish off our tour with the iconic ride out to Formentor lighthouse. From start to finish this ride delivered the most incredible scenery. To cap our good fortune, we experienced no wind (unlike Iain), whereas Formentor lighthouse and it’s cliff-top roads is renowned for being pretty blowy and scary.

Again, all the logistics clicked together perfectly. We arrived back in time, checked out, disassembled bikes, and even had a couple of hours to be able to finally have a pizza (of course in Tolos), before being met by the coach back, through Palma airport, returning again via the excellent Norwegian Air.
