When we talk about the Balearic Islands, images of beach, sun, nature and, in short, magical landscapes come to mind. If you are thinking of visiting the area, bike hire in Mallorca will open up endless possibilities.
Cycling in Majorca, a whole world of opportunities
Whatever your level on two wheels, the island is capable of offering you everything you need as a cycling lover, from spectacular landscapes on the beach to peaks over 1000 metres high such as the Serra de Tramuntana. Furthermore, while in most European countries cycling is only practised outside of the winter season, Mallorca offers the ideal climatic conditions for year-round cycling. In fact, many professional teams choose this place to prepare for their competitions.
The best routes in Spain
In case you didn't know, the Balearic Islands are the third most active cycling region in Spain (behind Madrid and Barcelona). However, they are champions in terms of the length of their routes, with an average of 66 km, something that favours bike and motorbike hire in Majorca.
Also, don't forget that in the ranking of the most famous routes, the first places belong only to Mallorca:
- Tramuntana coastal road: From Pollença to Andratx you will enjoy its 110 kilometres of route. However, you must take into consideration the accumulated difference in altitude of 2,520 metres, as well as an average gradient of 6%. Quite a challenge.
- Sa Calobra: Another route not to be missed, but you will have to pay a little attention to it because of its average gradient of 7%. The less daring prefer to do the route by motorbike.
- Cabo de Formentor: This is a beautiful route of about 20 kilometres that will provide you with the best views on a firm route.
- Coll de Sóller: This is the favourite of many, as it contains the old mountain road almost exclusively for cyclists. If you decide to do it, we recommend starting in Sóller.
