Cycling Tour in Mallorca

Gem of the Mediterranean, Mallorca is the largest island of the Balearics, an archipelago off the Catalonian coast. Less raucous than its southern sister, Ibiza, Mallorca is a cyclist’s paradise. The fact that the pros train here during the shoulder months (February-April and October-November) has led to a culture of reverence for the bicycle and even a local economy around the sport! 

 

This tour covers much of the northwestern part of the island. We’ll pedal glorious roads into and out of charming towns, both along the coast and inland, as well as cross through the UNESCO site of Serra de Tramuntana. Everywhere we go and all along the way, we’ll savor the best of island food and wine. Mallorquin cuisine is decidedly Spanish, but through visits with local producers, we’ll come to learn and taste what makes this island so special.

 

About the Mallorca Island

 

The name Mallorca derives from the Classical Latin insula maior or “larger island”, which morphed in medieval times into Maiorica, “the larger one”. Palma de Mallorca is the capital for the archipelago, which has been an autonomous region since 1983. Given its proximity to Catalonia, it is no surprise that the co-official languages of the islands are Catalan and Spanish.
