Riding all the way around Mallorca.
Day 1: 115km / 2800m. Day 2: 196km / 2000m.
The best place to stay in Mallorca when coming to cycle is Port Pollensa, and to ride the full circumference of the cycling paradise of Mallorca is a big and very rewarding undertaking. It is a brilliant route, all 311,1 km of it, and many people have ridden it in one day, many of those in the days of the old Mallorca 312 before it changed its route to an out and back one to fit as many people in as possible on closed roads.
In our experience the problem with riding it all in one day is that no matter how fit you are, because of the sheer length and difficulty it will negatively impact on the rest of your trip out here, meaning that you will spend less time in the saddle and see less overall. In addition you will be flying past places that if you just had a bit more time, you would stop and take in that view or take that picture or have that well earned coffee and cake.
We have added additional bike bus services to allow people to now complete this route in 2 days, whilst still being able to stay in Port Pollensa, meaning that it is still a big challenge but can now be one that allows you to enjoy the rest of your stay here with legs that are well used, but not too well used!
This is what many adventurous cyclists are now doing:
Day 1 - ride from Alcudia, Port Pollensa or Playa de Muro through the Tramuntana mountains to Andratx. Arrive before 18:00 to catch your pre-booked transport on our bus with it's custom bike trailer back to Port Pollensa.
Day 2 - take the early morning bike bus back down to Andratx from Alcudia, Port Pollensa or Playa de Muro to complete the rest of the circumference ride.
Pre-booking is essential as we offer a popular service and most of our bike buses run full or almost full.
