Senses 6Points Ride Ibiza and Formentera

6Points is a group of cycling enthusiasts from the yachting industry and beyond that raises funds for charity by riding exciting locations. Our aim is to ride with fantastic people whilst thoroughly enjoying the cycling experience. 6Points Ibiza and Formentera is a ride to the most northerly, southerly, westerly and easterly points on each island, and to the highest and lowest points accessible by road.


This year, our 30 cyclists (along with two support cars, support teams and a photographer), caught the Friday morning ferry to Ibiza and checked into El Puerto Ibiza hotel. After enjoying lunch at the waterfront Bella Italia restaurant, we embarked on Stage 1.

The next morning we took the ferry to Formentera for the next stage; an unexpectedly hilly ride to the most easterly point. 66km later, having enjoyed a delicious tapas spread at El Merino restaurant, we caught the ferry back to Ibiza for dancing and nightcaps.

Sunday morning saw the big one; 124kms and 1600m of vertical climbing not to be underestimated. A climb 4.5kms long with an average gradient of 6%, (14% and above in parts), it’s a tough one! Having reached the fantastically picturesque town of Portinax and the most northerly point, we dropped down south through beautiful countryside to the western party town of St Antoni. After a well-deserved pizza, we cycled to Cala Comte and then back to Ibiza Town. A wonderful ride indeed!

Why not get involved? This year’s rides alone have raised over €35,000 for our chosen charities. Since 2017, we have raised over €155,000! Many thanks to our friends & families, partners, corporate and private donors, and of course, our 6Points riders – we couldn’t do this without you!
