The most famous of the Balearic islands has its fair share of clichés. However, if you think we flew to Mallorca to drink beer out of buckets, you were wrong. Just a few meters behind the notorious beach begins a world ruled by those who prefer bib shorts over bikinis and who explore the wonderful island with their own leg-power. The idyllic picture book landscape will surprise you as you ride by pretty villages and almond plantations on beautifully-paved, small streets.

Mallorca is no longer an insider tip when it comes to a road bike holiday and you will rarely be alone. But this shouldn’t come as a surprise as the island lends itself perfectly to biking. You’ll meet many like-minded cyclists as you ride, whilst also finding quiet corners of the island where local life plays out. With such varied landscape ranging from flat to mountainous, prof riders and ambitious beginners will get their money's worth.

We – Colin, Britta and Seppe – spent six bike days in Mallorca. Three routes start in the capital Palma and three begin in Port d’Alcúdia in the northeast of the island. The rides focus on the well-known and incredibly beautiful pass roads in the Tramuntana mountains with their steep valleys. Although we’ve included a few easy routes for you too. We are sure that you will have as much fun on the island as we do. And, after several thousand meters of climbing, you can, of course, treat yourself to a well-deserved beer on the beach.

    “Lots but rewarding vertical meters. Once you are out of Palma, you can warm yourself up on the plain until you get steadily up and down from Valldemossa. At km 35 you should definitely make a detour to Torre del Verger and enjoy the view. The coastal road to Andratx offers a

    Colin - Product Manager:

    “The heart of the tour is definitely the well-known Coll de Sóller among road cyclists. The climbs are easy to pedal because they were freshly tarred a few years ago and are therefore all the more fun. The view from Carrer de I'Arxiduc Lluís Salvador is unique and makes up for

    Colin - Product Manager:

    “If you are looking for a change from mountain climbing in Mallorca, then you should take a closer look at this tour. On well-paved bike paths, it leads out of Palma towards the Randa Monastery. In Llucmajor you are halfway through the tour, which invites you to take a break in

    “Super nice round, not too demanding. Roads are not always of the best quality, but they are still absolutely worth driving. The round goes through a few remote villages. Absolutely worth seeing! ”

    

    The Orient-Runde is a wonderful 100-kilometer-1,000-meter climb. You can cycle through

    Britta - Sales Manager:

    "Small lap to roll out or retract, but the views of this bay are absolutely worth it."

    

    What a lovely little round. If you want to explore the area after your arrival or if you did not originally come to Mallorca to go racing and would like to give it a try, this tour is perfect

    Seppe - Engineer:

    “When you think of cycling on Malle, you think of Puig Major and Soller. Two mountains that are classics on Mallorca. This round connects both mountains. In the first half of the tour there are all vertical meters. Here you can measure yourself against your friends. The second part always
