It is a type of bicycle designed for mountain or countryside routes. It's also known as an off-road bicycle. It has a double suspension that gives cyclists the chance to reach places that were considered inaccessible, improving maneuverability and control over irregular terrain. That's why it's the perfect bike if you want to get away from the roads.
Undoubtedly, the best area to make your MTB routes (another way of saying mountain bike) in Mallorca, is the Sierra de Tramuntana. In fact, it's one of the best places in Spain if you want to pedal while enjoying nature.
In addition to those in Pollença, there are routes such as Sóller, Bunyola, Fornalutx, Esporlas and the Lluc Monastery that are worth visiting with our mountain bikes.
If you visit the south of the Tramuntana, the best tours will help you to know beautiful villages such as Sant Jordi, Algaida or Llucmajor. On the other hand, the routes that pass through Calviá, Santa Ponsa, Andratx or Cap Andritxol will give you the possibility to take a refreshing swim.
Before launching yourself on the route, you must calculate your strength and physical condition since there are routes that can last an hour and a half or even several days. So it's important that you know your possibilities and you'll increase the length of your routes over time. These tours can be done throughout the year, but the most recommended seasons are spring and autumn.
From Pollença you can depart to any place on the island, but having the Sierra de Tramuntana so close allows you to visit places as spectacular as the Monastery of Lluc, linked by a path that is essential if you are a fan of MTB.
We hope that with this article you will start your routes with the mountain bike in one of the most privileged areas of the world. Of course, don't forget to always bring good nutrition and hydration for the route. It's very important!
