Mountains

The principle range in Mallorca is the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of the island. The climbs hereare mostly gentle gradients, with only a few sections in excess of 8%. The exception to the is Sobremunt - the most difficult climb on the island for several reasons.

Scenery

The scenery here is spectacular, with some superb coastal views as well as several climbs through forested areas.

Roads

The roads are generally in very good condition with smooth tarmac. Some of the roads are busy and local knowledge is useful to avoid these sections wherever possible.

Getting There

Although there are regular ferries from both Barcelona and Valencia, by far the easiest way to get into Mallorca is to fly directly in to its capital - Palma.

Weather

Mallorca's climate is fine for cycling throughout the year. It is very busy in the height of summer though, so try to avoid coming in July and August if you can.
