How to climb Sa Calobra in Majorca
Flights to Mallorca and Girona are only at this price from Newcastle, while Leeds are offering flights to Pisa, Italy, which is just a stone’s throw away from the Apennine Mountains and the rolling roads of Tusancy.
For London travellers, Luton is flying to Faro, where the recent Tour of Algarve was held.
Stansted is specialising in flights to the south of France: Toulouse and Carcassonne appear to be the best options, while Bordeaux on the Atlantic Coast is also a possibility.
Bristol, too, has options for southern France, flying to Béziers. Flights for £5 to Valencia are also departing from Bristol.
The cheap flights, though, are offset by the airline imposing a £60 charge to transport your bike, meaning it will cost £120 to take your bike to and from your chosen destination.
Before you book, though, probably best to check with your boss and your other half if you are allowed a last-minute cycling trip.
