Mallorca’s reputation as a cycling mecca is built on solid rock. Literally. From the Coll Se Creu just 40 minutes’ ride from the Café du Cycliste shop in Palma to the Cap de Formentor at the opposite end of the island the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is where cycling gold is to be found.
Sunshine, solid climbs, perfectly engineered roads, the Mediterranean and a local community tuned into the needs of the visiting cyclist. And for those who like to be alternative there is a network of lanes and double tracks across the agricultural lands and historic villages that lie to the south of the mountains.
Being an island, it’s always easy to find a spot for a sunset, tapas and refreshments over which to pick the next day’s parcours. This is Mallorca.
CAFÉ DU CYCLISTE is based on Plaça Rosari in Palma where you can find the full men and women’s collections, bikes to rent, rides to join, quality coffee and racing on the tv.
