About Mallorca 312

Celebrate 10 years of the mighty Mallorca 312 in 2019. This event is now one of the biggest sportives of the year with over 8,000 riders from all over the world taking on the beautiful closed roads of Mallorca.
The 167km route is challenging but the climbs are all steady and there should be groups to ride in on the flats so this is suitable for most sportive riders. The 225km route adds a stunning loop by the coast and we highly recommend adding the 60km if you can. The full 312km is a proper endurance challenge and hugely popular.

Liam, Mallorca 312, 2017: "I just want to say thanks for your help with getting us signed up for this. We had the week of our lives and the event itself surpassed my expectations. I'll be recommending it to anyone who'll listen and I'll be sure to tell them about Sportive Breaks "

The Routes

You have three choices for Mallorca 312 - the full route with 4,547 metres of elevation which has a loop out and back to Playa de Muro taking in most of the main climbs in the Tramuntana mountains and then an 80km lumpy loop to Arte and back. The 232km route is just the first loop and packs in a not insignificant 3,813 metres of climbing. The shortest route is 167km which breaks off from the other routes after 90km. Unlike most sportives, you have the choice of which route to take as you ride so if you were planning the 232 but your legs are feeling great you can do the 312.

Long Route 312km

Starting early in the morning from Playa de Muro, the route takes you along the coast to Port de Pollenca before the climbing starts. The first two climbs will be familiar to Mallorca regulars, the Coll de Femenia & Puig Major. This is the highest point of the ride after 60km. After 150km the route leaves the mountains and you are onto the plains before a lumpy last section to keep you honest.

Medium Route 225km

The new 232km route follows the 312 all the way round without the last 80km loop to Arte. As with the longer route, most of the work is in the first 150km which is relentless climbing and descending before a relatively flat last section through the plains.

DISTANCE  225 Km       ELEVATION  3813 M.

Short Route 167km

Though shortest in length, this is still a tough ride with the same big climbs as the other routes. The 167 splits off 20km outside of Soller at around 90km. From there it is a rolling 75km back to Playa de Muro.

DISTANCE  167 Km       ELEVATION  2534 M.

Where to Stay

Playa de Muro

The home town of the 312 and the most convenient base for the event as there is an early start and registration the day before is also in town. Outside of a pretty beach there is little to do in Playa de Muro but most hotels are packed with facilities and it is a short ride to the hills.

Port de Pollenca

The main base for British cyclists on the island. There is a town centre with bars, shops and restuarants and plenty of coffee shops & bike shops. The lighthouse ride and the Tramuntana mountain range start from just outside the town so it is a great base. The only drawback is the 18km ride to the start / finish line. Our packages include a transfer to the start from your hotel.

 

FAQs

Getting There

The nearest airport is Palma (PMI). This is just under an hour away from both Port de Pollenca and Playa de Muro. Shuttle services are available on all our 312 packages for you and your bike box directly to your hotel.

Documents Required

Book your entry with us and we will deliver your entry to your hotel. If you want to collect your entry from the race village, you will need to collect in person with a passport and your race number (emailed to you a week before the sportive).

What to Pack

Check the weather carefully. You may need arm warmers for the early start. The road quality is mostly very good and there are few sections of steep gradients so a standard bike setup should be fine.
