Cycle Tourism in Mallorca
It’s no stretch to say that Mallorca lays claim to some of the finest cycling in Europe. In fact, we’ll go another step forward and say it’s home to some of the best cycling in the world.
All the ingredients are there. Balmy year-round weather? Check. A mashup of city streets, quiet country lanes, and rugged tracks? Check. Flat plains and up-and-down mountains? Check.
The Endorsement of Pro Cyclists
That friendly weather, that variety of terrain and setting, not to mention all the bike shops and other resources you could ask for: It’s no surprise so many professional cycling teams train on Mallorca, and more than a few elite cyclists even call the island home.
And some high-profile races take place here, including the Mallorca Challenge (aka Tour of Mallorca), which kicks off the season for many pros. This annual multiday event (which isn’t an official stage race) shows off the full breadth of the island’s routes as it takes riders from city streets to mountain backroads.
Cycling Out of Puerto de Pollensa
Puerto de Pollensa is one of the island’s cycling hubs, without question. Traffic isn’t as heavy as it is around Palma, for one thing. (We should note that, given how widespread and commonplace cycling is all around the island, Mallorcan motorists are very alert for and respectful of their two-wheeled counterparts.) Close at hand are the mountain routes of the Serra de Tramuntana with their stunning scenery—limestone crags, valley-nestled villages—and broad range of grade. Not far off, meanwhile, are the flatter courses of the south, including jaw-dropping beach- and bluff-side Mediterranean byways.
