Remember this trip can be tailor made and is completely flexible. This itinerary is simply a suggestion.
Arrive into Palma and you will be picked up and taken to Port Pollensa in the north of the island. You will stay on the beach in a fabulous 4* hotel in Port Pollensa on a half board basis.
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 on or off the bike.
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 Alcudia bay and out to the north east coast is a beautiful route. The ride is quite flat and you will have the sea on your left hand side as you ride all the way from Pollensa to Alcudia. Grab a coffee in Alcudia before exploring Mallorca’s remote north east coast. Make your way out to the lookout at Cala Mesquida and then back through Arta and Sineu.
Today you will be taken back to Palma airport but remember, our trips are entirely tailor made and bespoke so this itinerary can be altered in any way you want.
The north of Mallorca is one of the most popular European cycling destinations. Stay in Puerto Pollensa or 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.
