Cycling travel specialists Sportive Breaks offers travel packages designed for cyclists seeking to participate in some of the world’s most prestigious grand tours, cycling classics and weekend getaways.

The team offers a variety of tailored travel options; including cycling tours, training camps, hospitality services, and VIP experiences, providing their customers with exclusive access to some of the most popular cycling events and training locations across the world.


New for 2024, the team are delighted to announce the release of their Women’s Only Weekender packages; the first taking place in the sunny landscapes of Mallorca (25th September 2024) and the second in the iconic Ventoux region (16th October 2024) — both offering a perfect combination of bike riding, stunning scenery, and supportive camaraderie.

Mallorca Women’s Only Weekender

The Mallorca Weekender offers women cyclists an ideal balance of challenging routes and relaxation in one of Europe’s most beloved cycling destinations.

This package, designed for cyclists of all skill levels, includes carefully planned rides through picturesque towns and breathtaking coastal roads.

Guests will enjoy comfortable accommodation, delicious local cuisine, and expert guidance throughout the weekend.

Ventoux Women’s Only Weekender

The Ventoux Weekender provides an exhilarating challenge for women who want to tackle one of cycling’s most legendary climbs: Mont Ventoux.

Known as the “Giant of Provence” Mont Ventoux offers a demanding ascent with breathtaking views at the summit.

This trip includes a guided climb, complete logistical support, and post-ride relaxation to help participants celebrate their achievement.

Both packages include accommodation, half-board meals, guided rides, and transportation, offering a seamless experience from start to finish.

The trips are also fully customisable, with the choice of various accommodation options and additional activities to tailor the package to an individuals’ preferences.

To really make the travel experience one to remember, a special guest will attend both trips – Louise Vardeman – renowned cyclist, writer, and content creator celebrated for her passion for cycling and commitment to diversity and inclusion in the sport.

Louise is a key member of InternationElles, a group dedicated to promoting gender equality in cycling, and her work here has been instrumental in raising awareness about the need for greater representation of women in the sport.

Louise’s authentic voice and relatable approach have earned her a dedicated following within the cycling community, and she remains committed to encouraging women to take up cycling and advocating for positive change within the sport.

“I’m very excited to be part of the Women’s Weekenders with Sportive Breaks,” said Louise Vardeman of InternationElles

“Both Mallorca and Ventoux are amazing destinations with stunning landscapes and challenging routes, offering the perfect setting for female cyclists to come together.

These events are incredibly inclusive, catering to cyclists of all levels, whether you’re a seasoned rider or new to the sport.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for women to share their love of cycling in a supportive environment.

The team at Sportive Breaks do an outstanding job providing top-notch service, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience for everyone. I can’t wait to ride alongside so many inspiring women and create unforgettable memories.”

“At Sportive Breaks, we understand that many women are more hesitant to join male-dominated cycling groups, which is why we designed our Women’s Weekender packages to create a welcoming and supportive environment,” said Samantha Varley, Product Manager at Sportive Breaks.

As a keen cyclist myself, I’m delighted to be offering these unique trips that cater specifically to women. I’m especially excited to work with Louise Vardeman, who is an incredible inspiration to female cyclists everywhere.

We hope these packages mark the beginning of a wider initiative to develop more female-friendly cycling experiences.
