Marvelous Mallorca

Spin the Spanish island on this exciting route!

Mallorca has been the preferred training ground for cycling pros and aspiring amateurs for years. Its mild climate is just the beginning. Mallorca offers epic terrain on roads that are smooth with little traffic.  There’s stunning and varied scenery in all directions: monasteries on mountaintops, dramatic cliffs that drop into the sea, ochre houses with green shutters and balconies full of flowers. The cuisine of the island has been influenced over thousand of years by the civilizations that have come and gone, and today there is something for everyone, from tapas bars to old wine cellars converted into restaurants serving traditional food to Michelin-starred restaurants. Winemaking has seen a resurgence in the last few decades, and today winemakers are producing quality wines from popular international grapes as well as indigenous varietals. All of these ingredients combine to make Mallorca a true mecca for cyclists.  Our guides will lead you on a tour of the island from west to east, along coastal roads and quiet inland routes. The tour offers amazing cycling for intermediate to expert cyclists with daily doses of Ciclismo magic that will excite your senses.

Itinerary

Algaida

Welcome to Mallorca! You can take a taxi from Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) to our first hotel in Randa near Algaida. At 1 p.m., we'll meet for a light lunch, introductions and a bike fitting, and then we’ll take a warm-up ride.

Llucmajor Loop

Our ride will take us to the Serra de Tramuntana, a mountain range which forms the northern ridge of the island. Along the route we’ll cross several inland villages, stopping for a wine tasting in Binissalem and continuing to Sóller, a town surrounded by citrus groves and craggy peaks. We’ll reach Sóller by way of one of the classic climbs of Mallorca, crossing the Tramuntana.

Llucmajor to Deià

Views of dramatic coastal scenery and the Tramuntana mountains will be part of our route to Banyalbufar, a cliffside village with a Moorish heritage. On the way back to Deià, we’ll visit la Granja de Esporles, a beautiful 17th- century mansion surrounded by lush vegetation, botanical gardens and natural fountains.

Deià to Alcudia

Today, we’ll ride on the Ma10, one of the most famous routes on the island that spans the length of the Tramuntana mountain range. On the way to Alcudia, we’ll stop at the Lluc Sanctuary—a former monastery and Mallorca’s most sacred site—for a picnic lunch. It’s a favorite stop for cyclists that offers a tranquil setting and spectacular views.

Alcudia Loop to Cap de Formentor

Today, we ride along a dramatic stretch of coast to the northernmost point of the island, Cap de Formentor. Have your camera ready: this gorgeous place has quite a few lookout points with spectacular views. We’ll stop in Port de Pollenca to enjoy lunch by the port before heading back to Alcudia. The afternoon before our olive oil tasting, you are free to explore the old town full of Roman and Moorish influences.

Adiós!

After breakfast around 9 a.m., we’ll take a 45-minute group shuttle back to Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) to make your next connection, or you can extend your stay in Alcudia! Your guides are more than happy to offer suggestions.
