Bryan Visser, who will be taking up the six points challenge.


As cycling takes over as the island’s most popular sport, Calvia Council has been quick to promote Calvia as the cycling hub of Majorca, supporting a new and exciting cycling event taking place from Saturday, 1 October to Monday, 3 October.

The gruelling charity cycle challenge will cover 400 kilometres with 5,500 metres of climbing. Starting from Calvia, it will reach the six extremities of Majorca – four compass points (north - Cap Formentor, south - Cap de Salines, west - Sant Elm and east - Cala Ratjada), the highest (Puig Major) and lowest (Magalluf beach) points.

Cyclists are invited to ride all or part of the route. Starting points are in Calvia, Soller, Puerto Pollensa, Cala Ratjada and Arenal.

For those wishing to test their endurance in what looks to be a cyclist’s dream event, riders are asked to raise a minimum of €100 to participate and get a commemorative jersey.  They can do this by asking their family and friends to sponsor them by donating a small sum to Calvia Lions.

The money raised will be donated by Calvia Lions to two very worthy causes: the RANA Foundation and the Allen Graham Charity for Kidz. Lions' member Bryan Visser, who is organising the event, told the Bulletin: "I will be riding the full distance (I hope) and people are welcome to sponsor me by either sending their pledge to or, if they want to give GB pounds, they can visit our Just Giving page at
