Mallorca combines all the essential elements needed to make your cycling holiday great.
Its climate is mild throughout the year and especially apt for cycling in the autumn and spring.
Its terrain is varied and full of contrasts, with peaks rising about 1000 m along the Tramuntana Mountains and flat plains in the centre.
Its healthy and fulsome local Mediterranean cuisine is perfect for sportsmen, rice and sea food, fine local wines, and the fresh and dried fruits needed to keep you going on long rides.
To top it all off we have a cycling friendly hotel located in the north, ideally placed for cycling routes and afternoons spent recovering in nearby Puerto Pollensa.
You want to go cycling in Mallorca, but where will you stay?
In many ways this is the least important part of your trip. You would like somewhere comfortable and cycling friendly at the very least, possibly well located to cycling routes around the island, but other than that, your cycling friendly hotel is just a spot to stop.
So, if you are going cycling in Mallorca and don't know where to stay, Puerto Pollensa is a good start.

There are long arduous mountain rides ideal for training weeks and short cycles along the more unspoiled central plains for visiting places of interest and enjoying a more leisurely cycle and slower pace.
One of our favourite cycling routes in Mallorca is the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, 138 Km of craggy limestone peaks, sheer climbs and vertiginous drops.
With its beautiful scenery and charming villages, Soller, Valldemossa, Estellenchs, Deia and Escorca, this route is one of the most comprehensive.
Our cycling hotel in Mallorca is ideally located at the start of this cycling route.
There are emblematic sights on route at Sa Calobra, Torrent de Pareis, and the reservoirs of Cuber and Gorg blau bordering the highest mountain in the Balearics, the Puig Major with its 1,445 meters of altitude.
Don´t forget to try the climb to the Monastery of Lluc, a place of pilgrimage and popular meeting point at the start of the Tramuntana route, just outside Pollensa Old Town.
Lluc is great to visit out of season before the tourists arrive on mass and clog up the roads with rental cars and tour buses.

This route takes you from the tranquil beaches on the south coast across the rolling plains. Dotted along the way you can visit Manacor (City of Pearls,) Petra, Felanitx, Porto Cristo, Porto Colom, Porreras and the Colonya de Sant Jordi, and sample their delicious and varied cuisine.
