The Tramuntana Challenge
This is perhaps the hardest route you can do in Mallorca.
It goes right the way along the spine of the Tramuntana mountains, from Andratx in the west to Port de Pollensa in the east—taking in Sa Calobra on the way. RideWithGPS has it as 3700m of ascending—that includes all the little ups and downs. So it’s hard!
A ride this hard is tricky to include in a holiday of a week’s length—when would you do it? Do it at the start and you’d be too wiped out to ride for a couple of days afterwards; do it too late in your trip and you won’t be fresh enough to rise to the challenge. To solve this problem, we’re offering the chance to ride the Tramuntana Challenge as part of a three-night stay. Get in touch and we can build a trip for you (there’s no minimum group-size for this trip).
day 1: arrive and short tune-up ride
day 2: easy day, say 80km over the Orient loop
day 3: the Tramuntana Challenge, 150km from Andratx to Pollensa
day 4: head home and sleep on the plane!
day 4: fly home
On the Tramuntana Challenge day, we drop you and your bike in Andratx, and you are supported by a follow-car on route.
