6Points Challenge has the the perfect ingredients for a fantastic few days: a great bunch of people behind organising it, stunning cycling roads and scenery, a warm welcoming atmosphere and all the profit goes to supporting local charities that really make a difference and give back to the island. My first experience has etched great memories and I look forward to more“ - Karen Darke MBE, Paralympic Silver and Gold medalist

May I Introduce Bryan Visser, Founder of 6Points #
Bryan reached out to me
What brought you to Mallorca? #
We had been looking for a vacation/weekend apartment and had looked at Italy and a Spanish colleague recommended Mallorca. I came over for 4 days and drove the island to search for where we wanted to buy and arrived in Port d’Andratx and fell in love. Mallorca has excellent air links to the UK (where our family is), has wonderful infrastructure, is safe, clean and has a wonderful variety of scenery and cultures.
Where do you live in Mallorca and why did you choose that area? #
Costa de la Calma
Who are you? How do you occupy your time? #
I have been living on Mallorca with my wife for 13 years and love it! I created 6Points Cycling Challenges to raise money for charities on the island (we have raised over €85000 in 4 years). 6Points is pretty much a full time activity now that it has grown so much and has so many facets to it - the BIG rides (Mallorca and Ibiza, Formentera and Menorca), the Little rides (monthly on Mallorca), the Virtual rides on Zwift (every Sunday) and, now, the program to raise funds and collect food for those so severely hit by the pandemic on Mallorca. 6Points has an active and high quality organising committee and a number of amazing volunteers. They are the reason we have achieved so much.
How would you describe the feeling of community where you live in? #
We love living in the Ajuntament de Calvia - they go out of their way to help the expats and the quality of services in the municipality is really excellent.
What is your most memorable experience on the Island? #
Arriving late on Friday night to search for our house and realising how clean and safe everything felt - we both felt at home immediately.
What is the message you want to give to other people that are thinking of moving here? #
Do not waste time - do it!
