Cycle Mallorca – a week of perfect cycling

triathlete training Mallorca

Here’s a sample of a perfect week’s cycling, from our base in Campanet; click on the routes to see detailed descriptions, maps and profiles (and get the gpx file for the route).

Day 1: You’ve arrived, you get your bike unpacked (or your hire-bike tuned) and you’ve time for a 17km ride to Selva before the evening draws in.

Day 2: You’re first full day in Mallorca: 105km medium-difficulty route over the Orient loop.

Day 3: You have warmed up now, and want to ride the famous Soller pass; you also take in the highest pass on the island to the the Puig Major tunnel on this 105km hard day.

Day 4: After yesterday’s riding, today some of you want to stay a little closer to home and do a medium 52km loop from Selva up to the Lluc monastery then down to Pollenca; those who want a few more miles and hills add the Sa Calobra descent and climb to the day to make a 107km hard day.

Day 5: You explore the island, ride the Soller pass from the other side and push further west to reach Deia for lunch in a 108km medium-hard day.

Day 6: You don’t want any hills today, but enjoy this easy 80km loop in the rolling countryside south of Inca.

Day 7: You’re last day so you don’t want to waste it, so you ride the Tramuntana range all the way from Soller to Pollenca in this 130km hard route.
