A cyclist can enjoy a greater number of cycling routes on Mallorca because of the variety it offers; there are coastal, mountain, bends, descents and ascents as well as straight stretches. Villages every few kilometres and the routes are well marked, it is easy to find restaurants, bars and emergency services if needed, there are plenty of shops especially in Palma which specialize in equipment and spare parts. In short, you can find everything you need in Palma or throughout the rest of the island to enjoy a few days of your favourite sport without having to go far. Mallorca is simply the best place for cycling in the Balearics. In addition, cyclists often divide Mallorca into different routes to cover as much they can of Mallorca during their stay in the Balearic Islands.
For example, cycling tourists can enjoy touring round the coastal part of the Levante area, where you will find the municipalities such as Artá, Capdepera, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Manacor and Felanitx, among other towns far from Palma de Mallorca which is the capital of the Balearic Islands. Alternatively, one can visit the centre of Mallorca, with routes starting in Alcudia and Pollensa, passing through Muro, Costitx, Llubí, Inca, Sencelles, Santa María and even reaching as far as Palma de Mallorca. You can dedicate an entire day to the Sierra de Tramuntana, leaving from Alcudia, passing by beautiful places such as Sa Calobra, Sóller or Fornalux, going up a Puig then down and up another Puig eventually arriving at places just as stunning like Deià, Valldemossa or Port D'Andratx, or you can even finish the route in the Port of Palma if you wish. The route is very complex, full of curves, slopes, some mountain passes and one of things that all cycling enthusiasts love about this route that you will see on one side or the another as your cycle the impressive views of the sea that surrounds the Balearic Islands.
However, if you prefer to ride on the flat then you can also choose a route that starts in Palma going through the southern part of Mallorca passing through wonderful villages of Mallorca, such as Llucmajor, Campos, Santanyí, Algaida, Vilafranca which gives another perspective to cycling in Mallorca. So, whether you are visiting the Balearic Islands alone to cycle or want to do some the cycling routes with a small group of friends or are with a team to compete in the prestigious Mallorca 312, which not only features in the Spanish news but in the European press as well, Mallorca is the best option for cycling in 2017 and for many years to come.
