A paradisiacal island sunning itself in the Balearic Sea, you’ll soon find that cycling in Majorca is one of the best ways to explore. With a mountainous eastern coast, you can put your thighs to the test and climb sweeping switchbacks with immense sea views. After a pause at the top to mop the brow and glug some water, your descent will be exhilarating to the max. 

An utterly fantastic place for two-wheeled explorations, cycle routes in Majorca can be flat, steep and everything in between. Kid-friendly trails wind along stunning coastlines with ample beaches and ice cream stops. Much of the terrain inland has only low hills, providing the perfect balance between climbs, views and descents that won’t be obstacles for most keen riders. 

With an unbeatable climate, clear seas and innumerable trails, cycling in Majorca is a slice of paradise.

More Information

A home for every rider

Cyclists have become an ever-increasing sight across this Mediterranean island’s diverse landscape. There are two very good reasons; bike rides in Majorca come in every shape and size, and the weather is astounding all year round. 

Never been on two wheels before? You can learn on flat, peaceful trails. Took home the gold at the last Olympics? You’ll find ideal routes for your ability. On Spain’s second-largest island, the cycle routes in Majorca can be traffic-free dirt trails or smooth tarmac switchbacks where drivers are respectful and used to hordes of cyclists. After all, this is an island where pro teams train. 

In the north, the Serra de Tramuntana mountains are a haven if you’re after serious climbs, views and descents. The very north has spectacular routes including riding up to Cap de Formentor, with its lighthouse and phenomenal vistas. Cycling in Majorca truly comes into its own as you ride through the mountains along the coast and you can always end the day at the beach for a well-deserved rest. 

When flatter trails call, you’re well catered for. Much of Majorca’s interior is low-lying and the central plain from Alcudia Bay to Palma makes for wonderful, gentle adventures. 

Cycle through history

If you’d like to see fascinating historic sites as you pedal your merry way around Majorca, you’ll certainly be pleased. With 14th century Bellver castle, 13th century Santuari de Lluc monastery and many extraordinary caves, to name a few, there are plenty of historic objectives to swing by. 

Preparing for Majorcan cycling

Majorca has an exceptional climate for cycling. Mild winters and warm shoulder seasons bring cyclists in their droves to explore and train on the island. Summer gets hot, but with a sea breeze, morning and evening rides can be wonderful. The most popular cycling season is March to May. Autumn has lovely temperatures but sees more rain. 

Always remember to take good water supplies with you, as the sunny island can quickly lead you into dehydration. Sunscreen is another must, including one small enough to carry. Snacks are always beneficial, but you’ll find plenty of cafes and restaurants filled with glorious seafood, lunches and ice cream to keep you going.
