Cycling in Mallorca
The diversity of the island makes it the perfect place to practice this sport. Because many of the itineraries are on flat terrain, cyclists of all abilities can use the network of roads. Moreover, the mountains provide the opportunity to practice ascents, a very popular pursuit on this Mediterranean island. The itineraries around the town of Pollensa are highly rated not only in the island but also on a national basis. For cyclists, Pollensa is one of the most popular places in the country to come and enjoy their sport.

Coll de S. Llorens (Sa Calobra): One of the cyclists’ favourite itineraries because of its beautiful scenery and also because it is one of the most difficult and challenging rides in Mallorca with constant ascents and descents surrounded by dramatic rocks and mountains.
Coll de Superna – Es Grau: This peaceful and beautiful valley is adequate for all cyclists because it is a relatively easy itinerary.
