Remember the routes can be tailor made and are completely flexible. This itinerary is simply a suggestion.
Fly into Palma and be privately transferred to Alcudia in the north of the island. Incredibly pretty, Alcudia will be your perfectly located base for the duration of your stay, in a 4* adults only hotel. Discover the medieval city, cosy cafes and boutiques before riding around the bay.
Today we recommend the iconic ride out to Cap Formentor lighthouse, at the tip of the island. Probably the most stunning 40km ride in Europe, you will traverse the winding road as it snakes through limestone jagged rocks. The rollercoaster takes you through quiet forest and out on to exposed sections of road with the cliffs plunging into the sea below. Enjoy a coffee at the lighthouse before making your way back and spending the rest of your day discovering the mountains or the flatlands.
Mallorca often feels like a cyclist’s theme park and today, you can enjoy the legendary Sa Calobra. At 9.5km and averaging 7%, this is where British Cycling and Team Sky have honed their skills. The views from the road are breathtaking. Combine Sa Calobra with a ride to the caves of Campanet, the monastery in Lluc, or the climbs out over Soller. We have GPX files of all of these routes for you to follow.
If you fancy a day out of the mountains, riding to Port Pollensa and out to Pollensa old town is a beautiful route. The ride is quite flat and you will have the sea on your right hand side as you ride all the way from Alcudia to Port Pollensa. Grab a coffee in Pollensa old town before heading back through Sa Pobla. After your ride, your transfer vehicle will be waiting to whisk you back to Palma airport.
Stay in Alcudia to enjoy access to climbs, flatlands, or coastal rides. Overlook the sparkling Mediterranean or head west to test yourself in the revered Tramuntana mountain range. There’s something for everyone on the sunny Balearic island which is why Mallorca is such a popular destination amongst road cyclists.
