Cap Formentor, Sa Calobra to Port Pollenca

Port de Pollença - Cap Formentor - Port de Pollença - Pollença - Coll de Femenia - Lluc - Coll dels Reis - Sa Calobra - Coll dels Reis - Lluc - Coll de Femenia - Pollença - Port de Pollença

Very scenic and very hilly ride taking in two of the best routes in Europe (and arguably the world). If possible try to catch the sunrise from Port de Pollença or from the climb up to Formentor viewing point, just above the fire plane base would be best.

Highlights

Cap Formentor, Col de Femenia, Sa Calobra and Coll dels Reis. The views. The excellent road surface apart from the stretch between Formentor beach and Cap Formentor.

What to be aware of

It's a long day in the saddle, usual precautions against the weather, hunger and thirst need to be taken. Most of the climbing takes place in the first 100km of the ride, so your average speed will pick up once you have reached the top of Coll dels Reis on your return leg. There are good cafés at Cap Formentor, Formentor beach, Pollença, along the Ma-10 after Lluc and at the viaduct where you take the Sa Calobra turnoff.

Tour buses are an issue during the summer tourist season, especially on the Sa Calobra climb and the Cap Formentor leg. We recommend using this route outside of this season.
