    wife wants to book a package holiday all inclusive type thing this year rather than a trip abroad with the car that involves lots of driving.

    So where’s a nice beachy sunny waterpark type place that also has a bit of riding nearby and decent bike hire options?

    I’m thinking Mallorca will fit the bill, but anywhere else to consider? Can be road or mtb riding, but i’m guessing road bike hire will be cheaper.

    Lake Garda? Waterparks/Theme Parks at the southern end, excellent riding/hire at the top.

    Malaga area? Plenty of beach resorts around and cracking MTB riding just inland (and probably roadie stuff too but that’s not my area). There’s a few guiding companies based there who rent bikes or I’m sure you can DIY it.

    If you don’t mind road rides you could go more or less anywhere. Mrs taxi and myself go to various places on the Costa Blanca,some very good riding there. loads of pro teams out there at the moment, they don’t all go to Mallorca.

    yeah dont mind road riding, just need somewhere with readily available hire as probably wont be able to take my bike as well as all the other stuff for wife and kids.

    Lake Garda looks nice, will check out malaga and costa blanca too, thanks

    Fuengirola (near Malaga) and hook up with Sierra Cycling – they do MTB day rides and have bike hire.

    Ibiza – http://rideibiza.com/

    Went year before last & took my bike and found some good trails. I didn’t end up riding with Ride Ibiza due to schedule (was there for a wedding), but was in contact with Ash and he seemed like a good dude – was happy to point me in the direction of the good trails nearby.

    There was a STW feature on it too.

    I’m off with Sierra mtb in a couple of weeks…Can’t wait! First time on a biking holiday, just fettling with my bike now to make sure it’s ready! Couldn’t believe it when the Mrs suggested I book myself on a biking holiday as a break from the rain!

    Madeira? In the airport waiting for a flight home as I write this. Didn’t do any riding out here unfortunately as I’ve been sick as a dog, but place is amazing, and some good riding and good guides as per a previous thread I read on here.

    The hilly hinterland of the Algarve is very accessible from the coast, a bit cooler, beautiful countryside, high standard of food and accommodation, cheap at current exchange rates. Was there for a cheap week in the sun last June. I just hired a road bike from a local bike shop and headed into the hills every day I was there. Would highly recommend it.

    tenerife/ lavatrax. just back from another week there over the new year.
    darran has several very nice kingdom (ti) full sus 650b bikes for hire, or bring yer own (like me).
    siam park is rated the best water park in the world (according to trip advisor) and after spending a day there, I can see why… fun for all the family.
    what more do you need?
