With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year combined with very mild temperatures, Mallorca is one of the most attractive places in Europe for sports lovers to train on a magnificent Mediterranean island.
What could be better than a bike ride through the most stunning scenery knowing that in autumn, winter or spring you will enjoy ideal conditions for training? We are well aware how important it is that nothing gets in the way of you enjoying your passion, and we can assure you that the island of Mallorca will not let you down.
Privileged locations in the Mediterranean
Mallorca has become the favourite destination for getaway breaks or for a few weeks of training for sports lovers and athletes from all over Europe, especially cyclists and triathletes. The island has become the most popular location chosen by more and more professional teams for their training breaks, either scaling the heights on intense rides through the Serra de Tramuntana mountains or clocking up kilometres on a route through the villages in the island interior, many of them cycling-friendly.
The great weather allows visitors to set out in optimum conditions practically every day to discover some of the most spectacular routes on the island. One of the best destinations for cyclists is Alcudia, home to the Zafiro Tropic and Zafiro Palace Alcudia hotels. You can start your training sessions touring some of the many villages in the interior along numerous local roads or minor highways with an average width of 6.5m. Alternatively, you can choose the mountain villages with more than 150km of roads from which to enjoy the beautiful scenery and cliffs over the Mediterranean such as Sa Calobra, Formentor or Puig Major. And if you want to take a welcome break for a typical Mallorcan snack or lunch, there is also no shortage of cycling friendly restaurants and bars.
