GRAVEL RIDES ON MALLORCA – ON THE INCA TRAIL
In the shadows of the Tramnuntana, Inca is Mallorca’s third-largest town and is situated nearly in the middle of the Island. The ride heads south to the flat and traverses the traditional village of Llubí before circling around to face the mountains, where you will find rolling hills and signposts to the finish.
Do this ride on a Thursday and you can finish at the local market in Inca, where leather is the specialty. Or, of course, you could just grab a cerveza.
Virginie are gravel shorts, designed to ride routes less ridden. With rear and side cargo pockets integrated into a four-way stretch fabric, carry all you need to ride the rough stuff.
The off-road sections of this ride vary from smooth gravel, to mud to stoney half-laid lanes. But gravel cycling is also about the quiet roads and on this ride, you'll find yourself in a labyrinth of lanes lined by dry stone walls and surrounded by orchards. Roughness rating 6/10.

2 - RENT AND RIDE
Travel light and book your bike. Via our partners, Bikecamp, just as in Nice, you can rent the Cervélo Aspéro to provide the best equipment for exploring Mallorca's gravel routes. Tours are also available for those who prefer to concentrate on pushing on the pedals and looking at the landscapes.
3 - THE STORE
Located in Palma's Plaça del Rosari, our Mallorca store is 15 minutes’ drive from the airport and 40 minutes’ ride from the Coll de Sa Creu. In-store you’ll find the full Café du Cycliste collection, a quality coffee, a big screen to watch the races and friendly faces to recommend rides and restaurants alike.
Tiny lanes lined by dry-stone walls, farm-tracks, ancient routes and rocky climbs. Mallorca's g-side is as varied as it is beautiful.
MORE GRAVEL, MORE MALLORCA?
