Mallorca Cycling Holidays: The Best Island For Cycling

What can be better than spending five days (four nights) exploring the array of cycling routes Mallorca has to offer? Are you looking for some early season sunshine, or wanting to take your training somewhere new? This weekend break has all that to offer and more.

We have planned a variety of cycle routes, which are split into two groups of varying speeds. A coast to coast spin and a climb up Sa Calobra are just some of the gems you will discover when you book your Mallorca weekend trip with Sportive Breaks.

Ride Notes

All of our cycle trips are led by an expert team of local experts, mechanics and a support van. We have everything covered; all you have to do is focus on cycling and taking in the breathtaking views.

With routes taking us beside the beach, through quaint villages and over rolling mountains, we have organised something to suit every taste.

There are two cycle options to choose from - a ‘coffee spin group’ that travels at an approximate speed of 24km/h and a ‘club group’ that travels at an average speed of 25-28km/h. Whatever your cycling ability, we have you covered.

Mallorca is regularly visited by cycle enthusiasts, with some returning multiple times to find and explore another route for the very first time.

Real Rider Reviews

Rob, Etape du Tour, 2019: "very well organised, great mechanic service. The food stop was well organised, maybe the individual bags should be left in the shade but otherwise it was a great stop, lots of food, oranges and cola very important! Training spin was well organised. Hotel was a good selection and very comfortable. Plenty of information was provided. Míle buíochas "

Ride Highlights

  • Ride Mallorca Coast to Coast

    By following the Ma10, we will cycle from one side of the island to the other. Throughout this route, we will hug the coast, tackle some awesome climbs and take in spectacular views.

  • Climb Sa Calobra

    A difficult climb with a thrilling descent, Sa Calobra is known as the ‘ big one’ in Mallorca. Before ending the ride at the beach, we must first navigate snaking hairpin turns, offering magnificent views that will stay with you for life.

  • Enjoy coffee and cake at the Lighthouse

    This is a weekend where you can have your cake and eat it too. We finish our weekend with a spin up to Cap Formentor overlooking the Mediterranean to enjoy coffee and cake. This is a view you won’t want to miss.

Routes Details

Route Overview

We appreciate that people prefer to cycle at different speeds and that ability-levels will vary, which is why we offer a choice of two route or speed options.

Each group will be led by one of our experts and will have access to our support van if required.

Climbs at Mallorca Weekender

Sa Calobra

Sa Calobra is considered Mallorca’s toughest climb. It is best avoided during the hotter hours when there is heavy footfall from tourists. We recommend cycling the route either early in the morning or later in the day. Sa Calobra offers a steady 7% gradient for the majority of the climb, allowing you to find your rhythm. Did we mention that orange juice and cake is available at the top of the climb?

Puig Major (Soller)

This is the longest climb available on the island and has so much to offer. Experience exquisite valley views while enjoying gentle gradients ranging between 5% and 7%. There is a flat section mid-way through so you can mentally prepare for the more challenging section towards the end. Enjoy winding up the mountain, cycling through a tunnel (there is lighting inside, but you may want to bring your own lights as the tunnel is also open to motorists) and coming out the other end to an explosion of stunning views on either side of the pathway.
