Majorca has become a paradise for amateur and professional cycling lovers. It is not uncommon to see professional cyclists training on the island during the winter. The good climate or the varied orography are just two of the many reasons why hundreds of thousands of cyclists decide to travel to Majorca every year. Another of the reasons that make the island so tempting to lovers of this sport is the large number of routes offered to practice it. So, to try to make your choice easier, here are the three main and most attractive routes for you to enjoy cycling to the fullest during your holidays in Majorca.


The Tramontana Route

The Tramontana mountain range is a spectacle worth seeing, with or without a bicycle. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The route that we propose you, of about 110km, crosses the coastal zone of the Tramontana mountain range starting in Pollensa, an ideal place to rent a villa in Majorca, to ascend about 2.500 meters and to finish in Andratx. In addition to the coast, on this route you will pass through beautiful and charming villages such as Valldemossa - if you need to refresh yourself we recommend you to try the almond slush -, the valley of the oranges of Sóller or Deià.


Route of Cap de Formentor

This is one of the most famous routes on the island, of medium difficulty. Again we have a route that starts near Pollensa, so we do not fail to recommend the area as the best choice for renting a holiday home in Majorca. Apart from the beauty of the route, one of the main reasons to highlight this route is its safety, as during the months of July and August private cars and motorcycles are forbidden access to the road.


Route of Sa Calobra

We would be facing a route of great difficulty more aimed at expert cyclists in which we will get to ascend stretches of up to 12% slope tight curves. However, the impressive views of the natural paradise that we will cross are well worth the effort. In addition this route offers us an incentive more, the possibility of visiting the Torrent de Pareis, one of the hidden gems that hides the island.


Apart from these three, as we mentioned at the beginning, there are many more routes on the island: the Orient and central region of Majorca, Coll de Sóller. . . and, even, you can discover the capital, Palma, along the promenade by bicycle. You won’t get the days to cover them all, but this way you have the perfect excuse to travel back to Majorca.
