Ride Description

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. This ride is rated Moderate, although there are several days where there is more climbing. The distances on those days are a little shorter though. As this is mostly a fixed centre ride, you can always have a day off. We have built in several very short days to enable some recovery. 

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. A vehicle will transfer luggage on transfer days. Mallorca is a well-known cycling destination and there are plenty of bike hire shops, with a range of bikes available, including e-bikes. 

We will start with a transfer from Palma airport to a nearby hotel. Palma can be reached by air from most European airports. 

During the first week we will be able to explore the area to the Northeast, extremely popular with cyclists, including the famous Lluch Monastery. Visit Cala San Vicente, a beautiful hidden cove, and the spectacular Formentor road. * Please note part of the Formentor road has been closed for a while and may still be closed, possibly making this ride shorter.  (Join People Cycling to read more)

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

What are you waiting for? Join today to see what bicycle adventure awaits you in our club.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
