Mallorca is a paradise for lovers of amateur and professional cycling. A good climate, a varied orography and the large number of cycling routes have become the main reasons why every year thousands of bicycle lovers decide to pedal around the island.
The best conditions come in spring and autumn, when the weather is milder and the roads are dry and empty of cars.
The island's repertoire is wide and surprising. There are routes for all tastes: extreme, with mountains that are over 1,400 meters high, hard climbs, dizzying descents, and quieter routes: kilometers of plains and impressive coastal and inland paths that connect the beautiful villages of the island.
If you plan to spend a holiday in Puerto Pollensa with your bike, you cannot miss the best routes in the area.
PUERTO DE POLLENÇA TO CAPE FORMENTOR
Round trip length: 32 km Maximum elevation: 200 m
The route starts from the Villa Singala hotel heading north, to Cape Formentor, passing by the es Colomer viewpoint. It is undoubtedly one of the most complete and challenging short walks on the island that will surprise you with views that will take your breath away.
The road ends at the Formentor Lighthouse, the northernmost point of Mallorca, from where you can see an infinite view of the Mediterranean Sea. So it is certainly an impressive bike ride!
PUERTO DE POLLENÇA TO LA VICTORIA (ALCUDIA)
Round trip length: 25 km Maximum elevation: 200 m
This route is an accessible option for those who are not in top shape. It is not a very long walk, without great difficulties, although with some somewhat daring ascents, with slopes of 13% to reach La Victoria, but also with bars and restaurants along the way where they serve delicious food and drinks, in an idyllic setting and with spectacular views towards the Bay of Pollença.
PUERTO DE POLLENÇA TO LLUC MONASTERY
Round trip length: 52 km Maximum elevation: 690 m
A somewhat demanding but beautiful route, for those who are fit, that will take you from Puerto Pollensa to the Lluc Monastery, in the heart of the Serra Tramontana and back to Puerto Pollensa.
