BIKE!

What to wear on a

cycling adventure:

Both destinations are warm

during summer, so it’s

really important to wear

appropriate cycling gear.

Ensure you apply sunscreen

too, especially on the nose,

cheeks and back of the

neck, and on your forearms

if exposed. Polarized

sunglasses are ideal – they

must be well fitting and

even have a fabric strap on

the arms to secure them.

Enjoy the fresh air and freedom of

mountain biking in two of the most

beautiful European locations ideal for

cycling enthusiasts...

Mallorca, Spain: In only a few

years, Mallorca has become one of the

most popular cycling destinations in

Europe. Nestled in the Mediterranean Sea,

the Spanish island offers a

magnificent landscape between

beaches, small towns, and

mountains and includes the

iconic climb of Sa Calobra. Café

du Cycliste has a coffee shop in

Palma, where cyclists can enjoy

a coffee, fresh juice and piece

of cake before and after a ride,

browse clothes and rent bikes.

Top: Wear something light, a merino jersey,

made of fantastic, breathable fabric, is ideal.

Bib-short: The most important piece of

the gear is a premium bib-short to keep you

comfortable on the saddle.

Headwear: Helmets are important for safety,

but some people opt for caps for stylish sun

protection.

Socks: Breathable socks are vital, so you don’t

get uncomfortable, too sweaty or overheated.

Nice, Côte d’Azur, France: The

Côte d’Azur is one of the most famous places

in France. While globally known for its allyear-round

sunshine, famous pebble beaches

and luxury lifestyle, the region is also the

playground of numerous pro-cyclists. Optimal

roads, optimal weather. It’s in Nice that Café

du Cycliste opened its first concept-store,

certainly the best place in town for all cycling

enthusiasts. Nestled in the port, the Café is a

friendly place to have a great pre-ride coffee

break while browsing the brand’s premium

cycling apparel and renting a bike to escape

towards the mountains or the seaside.
