Training camps and cycle tours in the north of Mallorca
“We used this hotel as our base on a recent cycling tour of Mallorca. ... If cycling is the primary reason for your holiday, the Duva is perfect and the facilities fantastic! Look no further.”
For mild out of season weather, spectacular scenery and steep mountain climbs head to the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of Mallorca.
This is where you will find the best and the most extreme cycling routes on the island and a wonderful sports hotel on route, on the road between Pollensa town and Port de Pollensa.
Cycle camp hotel
Where you stay will depend largely on where you want to go cycling in Mallorca, for although the island is relatively small, most of the best cycle routes are in the north.
But with so much to plan, the logistics of getting to Mallorca with a bike, or organising cycle hire on the island, choosing travel dates, finding a cycling-friendly hotel and liaising with the rest of the group.
In the midst of all the cycling details and travel plans, what you really want to know is, where is there a great cycle camp on the island?

That scalextrix set
Mallorca has become synonymous with quality cycling holidays.
As a world class cycling destination, Port de Pollensa, Mallorca, draws cyclists from all over Europe, from amateurs to pros, eager to train in the steep mountains of the Tramuntana during the island's mild winters.

Touring MALLORCA by bike
Whether you join a group or go solo, Port de Pollensa cycle tours provide a myriad of routes spread all over the island; there are 1250 km of roads on the island, with coastal, interior and mountain tracks, hills, peaks and gentle flats, enough to keep you busy for weeks and allow for all levels of cycling.
Professional cycle camps make the most of the island's mild winter weather to test themselves and train on the more extreme cycle roads, but Mallorca is a cycling destination with routes for anyone wishing to take to the saddle.
The Tramuntana has peaks over 1000 m spread over some 120 km of coastal mountain range, from the south east of the island to the very north.
Taking it easy - Cycling novices
Mallorca offers leisurely cycle camps for cyclists wishing to explore the island and sample its more epicurean delights.
The cycling season lends itself well to this, as the off-season when most cycle camps take place is more relaxed, with restaurants and cafes still open for business, but less crowded and more affordable than during the hottest summer months.
Quiet country lanes and sleepy villages in the interior of Mallorca are perfect stopping ground for mid-cycle breaks and the scenery is stunning in the flats, with hills and vineyards, another good reason to visit.
Family cycling holidays in Port de Pollensa are a great way to spend quality time with your loved ones and the cycle camps provide the logistics, routes, and local expertise to design and enjoy days out on the road with cyclists of all levels, and combine the cycle trips with other activities.
The weather is mild all year round
It is sunny in Mallorca for most of the year. Even when it's cold, the sun is invariably out, and as the days get shorter, there are beautiful mornings for cycling as late as November and as early as January.
The pros have known this for some time and head out to Port de Pollensa in the north to train early on the steep mountains of the Tramuntana.
But you needn't be a professional cyclist to cycle, there are routes for everyone and cycle camps which cater to your needs, fitness level and budget.
