Mallorca Island Cycling
Spain’s largest Balearic island has everything from gorgeous beaches, secret coves and food that stands up to the some of the finest restaurants in the world. And, of course, they have beautiful roads for cycling. Each day will take you to a different vista, the each one more awe-inspiring than the next. We’ll leave the high rise hotels and touristy beaches behind to explore the best of Mallorca and surrounding Mediterranean Sea. The well-preserved villages and local markets give way to chefs preparing food from their grandmother’s recipes. What does this mean for you? Foodie heaven.
Day 1 starts with a warm-up ride over rolling terrain to wake up the legs. Days 2-4 will be spent riding on quiet roads to see spectacular views from places such as the Formentor Lighthouse and the rural area of Serra de Tramuntana. We’ll continue into the hills and take a day of adventure cycling across Sa Calobra, the famous, insanely twisting road to a port known by locals and hidden from visitors. The week will finish up the week riding to the beautiful historical quarter of Palma, the island’s largest city that still holds an island charm and gorgeous style. Of course, to wrap up a great week we’ll take a food walking tour tasting some of the island’s best products.
