Cycling in Majorca

Majorca’s widely known as one of the world’s best cycling destinations thanks to its warm climate, clear roads and steep but remarkable routes. Combined with vibrant coastal resorts and a distinctly cosmopolitan capital, you’ll find variety at your fingertips. Enjoy the mix of exciting cycling routes and the laid-back holiday atmosphere.

Challenging climbs

Nestled close to the thigh-burning climbs of the Tramuntana Mountains, the northern coast is a real draw for pro cycling teams. Stay at Alcudia, Puerto Pollensa or Playa De Muro and you’ll be within easy reach of routes that explore the island’s interior.

Out of the saddle

After a great day’s cycling, there’s still plenty to do. You could enjoy the tantalising tapas bars in the city of Palma before snapping some photos of its dominating La Seu Cathedral. Later, relax by the waterfront at Puerto Pollensa or receive a warm welcome in Alcudia’s expat pubs.

Speedy flats

The vibrant south of Majorca has a range of flat routes for speed training and it’s still just a short ride to the west coast’s mountains. Three routes close to Palma Nova have gentler gradients, making them ideal for all ages and abilities.
