Why cycling in Mallorca?
There are many reasons why Mallorca is the perfect destination for cycling or cycle tourism, but the main reason could perhaps be its stunning natural landscapes and routes that combine both coast and mountains.
Routes and dreamlike landscapes
Mallorca is very popular thanks to its varied terrain and views, offering everything from mountainous peaks, flat paths, rural areas, coastal paths and hilly areas, to winding roads between mountain ranges with views out over the Mediterranean. There’s something for everyone!
Of course, if you come to enjoy a Mallorca cycling holiday, one of the greatest treasures it has to offer is a route around the famous Serra de Tramuntana, UNESCO World Heritage site, which passes through numerous towns on the island (such as Valldemossa or Campanet).
Mallorca is cycling-friendly
On the other hand, both the capital city, Palma, and all the towns on the island are cycling-friendly. The island receives thousands of cycle tourists each year and it’s very well prepared for the arrival of a large influx of this type of sports tourism to the island (more than 150,000 tourists each year).
There are many, varied, quiet roads and they’re in very good condition for cycling. There are also many bike workshops and trendy restaurants, bars and cafés aimed at cyclists dotted around the island. Interestingly, there are many professional cyclists who use the island as their training base.
An enviable, perfect climate for cycle tourism
The fantastic Mediterranean climate that can be enjoyed in Mallorca is another of the main reasons why so many people come on holiday to the island ready and raring to get in the saddle. On average, there are 300 days of sun per year and the climate is predominantly warm all year round, with little rain.
Hotels for cyclists in Mallorca
To get the most out of Mallorca cycling holidays, you should spend as much time choosing the area as you would spend choosing your hotel or apartment.
The most important part of enjoying your favourite sport to the max is staying in one of the towns or areas from which you can access diverse routes or cycle tourism trips.
You should also take into account that the hotel is specialised in the sport and offers facilities such as bike storage or bike hire, if required.
Of course, some of the most recommended areas to stay in if you want to enjoy the best Mallorca cycling holidays are the areas surrounding the Serra de Tramuntana.
