I have ridden completely around the circumference of the cycling paradise island of Mallorca twice, all 311.1km of it.
The first time I did it was with the Mallorca 312 in the good old days when it was a glorious circular route of the island. The second (and best) time was when my group of 14 riders and I decided to do it over 2 days.
Here is how to make the most of your limited time. No waiting around and no filler miles.
The routes chosen ensure you get to squeeze in the maximum. All routes include brilliant scenery, great surfaces and no junk. Expect a fair amount of climbing followed by exhilarating descents. Tired legs and amazing memories are loaded with you gratis onto the return flight.
and staying in the North these are the routes I would do..

an alternative to the North?
Every cyclist knows that Mallorca is an ideal base for cycling. Whether you want a serious training camp or to take in the spectacular scenery on a relaxing leisure ride, the miles of quiet roads, varied terrain, friendly motorists who give you plenty of space, the cyclist friendly hotels and facilities, quality bike hire shops, the hordes of like minded cyclists, the sun, the sea, the scenery – and the list goes on – Mallorca has everything a cyclist could wish for.
