Tour overview

CONQUER THE WORLD'S FAVOURITE SPOT

Mallorca is known around the world for being one of the best locations for cycling. It really does tick all the boxes: the sun shines almost every day of the year, creating near perfect cycling conditions; it has a strong cycling culture and is home to some of the best known teams and brands in the business, and has an enviable variety of terrain, with flat coastal roads overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, with both gentle and tough climbs just a few kilometres inland. 

But there’s more to do in Mallorca than just cycle. Dotted with charming villages, this island’s laid-back pace makes it an ideal location for rest days too. Whether you head to one of the many beaches to soak up the warm sun, or head to Alcudia or Palma to sample the local cuisine, you won’t have trouble filling your spare time. 

This Epic Mallorca: Self Guided Cycling Tour is the perfect opportunity to either put your cycling and fitness to the test, or opt for a more gentle pace, while you discover every corner of this magnificent island. Book now or contact us for more information.

Tour destination

MALLORCA - SPAIN

Once of the four main Balearic Islands, Mallorca sits just off the eastern coast of mainland Spain. The island has long been a favourite destination for cycling enthusiasts, especially among road cyclists, with kilometres of secluded roads to ride along the coastline as well as high up into the hills and mountains. Spots such as Sa Calobra and Cap de Formentor are on many riders’ bucket lists, and the locals are even used to seeing professional teams training here off-season. Time your trip well and you might just be able to catch them speeding past!

Discover More
  • Weather

    Thanks to its prime location in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Mallorca has a wonderfully pleasant climate with mild sunny winters and hot and humid summers. It is a fantastic year-round location for cycling, especially during the off season, when you can avoid the crowds, enjoy quieter roads and cycle all day long without having to avoid the midday heat.

  • Terrain

    Mallorca is home to almost every type of terrain there is. From smooth flat roads with views over the sparkling Mediterranean Sea, to winding routes that snake gently up through the mountains, Mallorca has it all. The Serra de Tramuntana is Mallorca’s main mountain ridge and features the world famous Sa Calobra descent, with hairpin bends and sea views. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is a magnet for walkers, hikers and cyclists all year round.

  • Culture

    Palma is Mallorca’s lively capital city located on the south coast of the island. It is packed with buzzing bars and restaurants on every corner, as well as shops, large open squares and beautiful architecture. Visit the Cathedral and its watchtower, take a stroll around the ancient Jewish quarter or head to the Arab baths to see one of the greatest legacies of Moorish architecture on the whole island.

Comfortable Stays

Hand picked quality 3* hotels sea side situated

Once you arrive back from your ride it’s your time to explore, relax on the beach and sample the local cuisine.

Distance: 84 km

On Day 2 the route begins by heading south-east from Ca’n Pastilla along the cycle path that borders the Bay of Palma with views out across the Mediterranean Sea. After a while you’ll start to ride inland through the countryside, along rural lanes flanked by almond trees, before a short ascent to the Santuari de Cura where you’ll enjoy incredible panoramic views. 

The route descends from here and continues to head inland towards Llucmajor, before climbing again to the Santuari de Monti-Sion just outside the village of Porreres. This is the last stop for today before riding back towards the coast to Colonia de Sant Jordi and the stunning Es Trenc beach, almost on the southernmost tip of the island.
