Mallorca has almost 300 days of sunshine a year. Hundreds of kilometres of quiet country lanes winding their way through pastoral landscapes dotted with almond blossom, so its the perfect place for ciclying. Smooth tarmac, warm breezes and courteous drivers. Lung busting climbs to test the best high in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains with endless views of the Mediterranean. Legendary routes like the epically beautiful Sa Calobra, one for the bucket list of every serious cyclist. Cycling in Mallorca is in fashion!

Sounds tempting? Well you aren’t alone. Cycling is booming in Mallorca: at least 150,000 riders of all abilities head for the island every year.

You could be sharing the roads with the very best in the world as many of the top teams train here in Spring. Also come to compete in the early season Challenge Mallorca trophy races, every year in January.

Mallorca is like a Scalextric track for cyclists

Cycle shops, and rental companies offer the very best bikes for rent, with pro trainers and mechanics on hand to give you the best advice, guided rides, or build bespoke training packages for you. “Mallorca is like a Scalextric track for cyclists”, says Mallorca resident, Tour de France winner, multiple Olympic champion and Knight of the Realm Sir Bradley Wiggins. Who are we to disagree?
