Triathlons are becoming more and more popular in general, and even more so on the island of Mallorca. The Mallorcan region of Alcudia in the north of the island is becoming an increasingly popular destination for cyclists thanks to coastal and mountain routes with different degrees of difficulty, and also for triathletes who also want to swim in open waters or run new courses.
If you are an athlete interested in learning about new destinations where you could do some training, read on! This post tells you everything you need to know about the area.
1. An area full of contrast
2. Hotels with facilities for triathletes and cyclists
3. Plan your training breaks in advance
An area full of contrast
Alcudia enjoys an extremely privileged location: alongside the sea, with the spectacular Sierra de Tramuntana mountains on the one hand, and easy access to the beautiful inland villages on the island of Mallorca on the other. This contrast also means it’s easy to organise training that offers different types of terrain and degrees of difficulty every day.
Did you know that one of the best cycling routes in Spain starts off in Alcudia? The climb up to Cape Formentor is about 80 km long and of medium-to-high difficulty, comprising a journey full of contrast, with stunning views over the Mediterranean, challenging slopes, amazing cliffs ... a fantastic experience for all lovers of two wheels.
Take a look at all the cycling routes from Alcudia on our website and we assure you that you will get to see the very best that the island has to offer. It’s also really easy to find your way around as all the roads and tracks are very clearly marked.
