Explore the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, a mecca for tens of thousands of cyclists who head here every year from Northern Europe. This is a two center ride, staying in Puerto de Pollensa in the Northeast then transferring to Palmanova in the Southwest of the island. This way we get to see the best of the island in two weeks.

Mallorca boasts a wide variety of landscapes, from the flatter plain in the center, rolling hills in the Southeast to majestic mountains in the North.
