Ride Notes

Spring riding in Mallorca. It doesn't get better. Come for a long weekend or a week of training and join our small group rides with a local guide. Fill your days with long rides in the mountains preparing yourself for a big season or coffee rides and apres cycling by the beach. Mallorca has long been a favourite destination for riders around the world, with many riders coming back every year and still finding new routes to explore. Packed into the island is some stunning coastline rides, a mountain range with a lot of great climbing, quiet country lanes and some stunning traditional villages where the pace of life has hardly changed for years. You can find it all in Mallorca, accompanied by sunshine, great road surfaces, a warm and welcoming local culture and some amazing food.

Ride Highlights

  • Discover the real Mallorca

    Far away from the beaches and tourism, rural Mallorca is a delight of slow paced villages, rolling hills, great food and a couple of great climbs.

  • Climb Sa Calobra

    The big one on the island. An engineering triumph, the road snakes through the mountains to the beach. A thrilling descent and challenging cllimb,

  • Coffee at the lighthouse

    Finish your week or weekend with a ride to Cap Formentor and have a coffee and cake overlooking the Med. This is a classic route on the island and a must for every cyclist.

Meet the Team

Miquel

Local Guide

A racer in the off season, a guide in the main season and an absolute beast on the bike. Miquel loves to show people round his island and is equally happy supporting people struggling up a climb and smashing it on the front with a quick group. He is highly skilled at blocking the wind on coastal roads - a great quality at the end of a long day!

Phil

Host

Lucky enough to live in Mallorca in winter / spring, Phil is the van driver and chief ensaimada taster. He loves finding the best spots for feed stations and joining the peloton on the short coffee spins. Home is in the rural middle of the island but the mountains are where his heart is and he is at his happiest cheering people up the Col de Soller & Puig Randa.

Routes Details

Route Overview

We offer 4 & 7 night breaks to Mallorca. We ride a mix of mountain and flatter routes taking in classic climbs and lesser known local routes. We ride in small groups together on the flat and climb at our own pace. Routes can change depending on the group but always include the coast to coast, Sa Calobra, Cap Formentor & a ride into the middle of the island.

Stage One - Stage Two

Stage One

From Port de Pollensa to Port de Pollensa

Ride Distance 99km
Elevation Gain 686m

An easier day exploring the quiet lanes and countryside of the middle of Mallorca. This is a chance to see a different side of the island, away from the tourists. The villages in the middle are sleepy and traditional with a very slow paced life. We ride through quiet lanes and past the famous market town of Sineu before heading back through the popular coffee and cake spot of Petra and home along the coast from Alcudia.

Stage Two

From Port de Pollensa to Port de Pollensa

Ride Distance 130km
Elevation Gain 2721m

The most famous climb on the island is the stunning Sa Calobra. To get there, we head up the Coll de Femenia, a great morning climb. We then ride on a ridge with great sea views before the descent of Sa Calobra - quick and amazingly fun. The climb is the toughest on the island with steady 7 & 8% gradients getting us back to a coffee stop at the top. We come back through a different descent home.


Climbs at Mallorca

Sa Calobra

The toughest climb on Mallorca. Sa Calobra is a one way down and up road to the beach. This is best ridden early or late (both in the season & in the day) as it can be busy with tourist coaches. The climb is steady with a 7% gradient most of the way up so you can find a rhythm and spin to the top where you are rewarded with great orange juice and cake!

Ride Distance 9.5km
Elevation Gain 7%
KOM  24 mins 54 secs

Puig Major (Soller)

The longest climb on the island. Out of Soller you climb with big valley views below you on gentle gradients of between 5 & 7%. In the middle of the climb there is a flatter section before it kicks up a bit again at the end. The road winds up the mountain all the way until you reach the tunnel and great views to both sides. The tunnel is lit but you might want to bring lights for this short section for extra visability for motorists.
