We will be heading off to Mallorca to bask in the sunshine, glory in the hills and luxuriate in the Med. The Tour of Mallorca will follow pie’s usual successful formula – daily guided rides, optional route choices, support vehicle, 3 food and drink stops a day, post ride food, excellent evening meals and accommodation along the way, airport transfers and, of course amazing cycling.

Mallorca is Spain’s largest island at about 110km in length and roughly 76km wide from north to south. It has 550kms of coastline with roads that hug them and give you views you can only dream of. The north west coast is made up of the Tramuntana mountains which have become a cycling Mecca, and off season training ground for all the major national teams. The Vuelta Ciclista a Mallorca is held here every year in February and is considered an important race for teams in their preparation for the summer season.

Itinerary

Day 1

Collection from Palma de Mallorca airport and transfer to the Hotel:

Lunch, bike assembly and then set off for a ½ day ride to get the legs spinning.

We will have a leisurely stop along the way before returning to the hotel.

Day 2

A full day out with our sights set on Col de Soller, Puig Major, and an optional descent and subsequent ascent of the iconic Sa Calobra. 119k and 2560m with Sa Calobra or 86k and 1579m without it.

Day 3

Exploring the north west Tramuntana.

There are three options:

Option One: Climb Col de Batalle, take the long descent into Pollenca and then ride back past the Caves to Binissalem.

Option Two: Climb Col de Batalle, take the long descent into Pollenca, and carry on going riding to the end of Cap Formentor. This is a dramatic and hilly ride with the cliffs falling away on either side of you and Med stretching as far as you can see. Head back to Puerto Pollenca.

Option 3: Combine both options

Day 4

Exploring the south west Tramuntana.

We have three options:

Option One: This will be a long day riding down the coast through Estellencs and then inland through Puigpunyent. It’s a fantastic day but hard riding. Option to drop Valdemossa climb reduces elevation.

Option Two: Do either route in just one direction and finish in Port Andratx. Take a transfer back to the hotel.

Option Three: Do either of these and then ride into Palma and finish for dinner there.

Full loop ride is 128k and 2300m ascent; one way to Port d’Andratx is 72k and 1300m; or go one way to Palma, 100k and 1600m ascent

Day 5

Leisurely breakfast, pack up bikes and transfer to the airport.
