Cycling Holidays in Mallorca

MALLORCA

Mallorca is truly the cycling isle. Offering jaw dropping and astounding views across the Tramuntana mountain range, experienced cyclists will climb and descend the hallowed tarmac of Sa Calobra, Puig Major and Cap Formentor. From Port Pollensa, the Tramuntana’s formidable limestone spires offer the ultimate cycling holiday. For those looking to immerse themselves in the rural flatlands, you can ride through almond blossoms falling on the meadows, through sleepy villages peppered with orange groves, whilst spending your nights staying in fincas (converted barn houses and traditional stone buildings). You can travel to Mallorca with confidence that the weather will be sunny for the majority of the year. Autumn and Spring are the most popular seasons as the temperature is cool but the sun is still present however, you will still find excellent riding in the summer and winter so long as you have weather dependant clothing and equipment with you. From Mallorca’s turquoise coastlines to its famous climbs, this stunning Balearic island never fails to seduce.

Sitting at 682 metres, the Cat 1 climb runs for 9.2km with an average gradient of 7%. It's a great challenge for experienced riders and offers magnificent views over the Balearic Sea.
