The Best Cycling in Mallorca
Getting the best out of cycling in Mallorca really means cycling in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains with its taxing climbs and sweeping, swooping descents + its spectacular forest, valley, cliff and sea views.

How can you make the most of your limited time? What are the best routes? Where are the must do climbs? Where are the best areas to stay? Where are the best lunch and coffee stops? This is where local knowledge is invaluable and this is where we enable you to get the best out of your trip.
Cycling in Mallorca (or cycling in Majorca!) has long been amazing and popular, now this website plays a role in helping individuals as well as clubs achieve successful and enjoyable cycling experiences from day one. No time wasted. No wrong turns. Our local knowledge for you.
The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range runs for approximately 90km from the southwest to the northwest of Mallorca (Andratx to Cap de Formentor) and covers around 30% of the island’s territory (1000 sq. km+). In 2011, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
All of Mallorca’s main cycling climbs are located in Serra de Tramuntana and the island wouldn’t be such an amazing cycling destination without it.
Cycling is excellent in the Tramunatana mountains due to the the hills being challenging but not too steep, the road surfaces being mostly excellent and traffic being generally sparse outside of the peak summer holiday season. Above all, the scenery is amazing. Effort is rewarded, and everything is cloaked nicely in the magnificent weather of Mallorca.
The best months to ride in these mountains are when it is cooler, so not the mid summer months of July and August, but if you find yourself here then, riding during the early mornings make it manageable. Just.
Cycling in Mallorca would not be the same without the Tramuntana mountains. Make the most of your stay here with our route section and its downloadable gpx files.
