Majorca is an island of undoubted beauty which offers an endless list of excuses for you to make a trip and, what is more, you can never get bored because you can never really exhaust the attractions to see. One of the attractions on this island is its landscapes, and to enjoy these landscapes there is nothing like hopping on a bicycle and pedaling non-stop! Many tourists come year after year to enjoy this sport while also taking in the wonders of the island.
Majorca has a vast network of back and country roads which are well signposted and maintained, some of them specially designed for bicycles, which make Majorca the ideal location to practice cycling. Professional cyclists who have visited Majorca left with a positive opinion on the island, such as Stephen Roche (winner of the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and the world championship), for example, who came to Majorca under the advice of Miguel Indurain. According to Roche, “Majorca captivates; it has a good climate, attractive nature and offers unbeatable opportunities for cycling tourists and professionals”.
Throughout the winter, the top European teams train on the island as it provides them with the ideal conditions for preparation. But professionals aside, fans or amateurs particularly enjoy this sport, because they can entertain themselves more with the regional roads and the small, pretty inland villages where they can appreciate the culture and cuisine of the island.
In the Serra de Tramuntana, you can take tours across the mountains both by road and on unpaved country paths. The Serra de Llevant, another mountain range, is situated to the east and has ascents and some less-strenuous mountain paths, while the center of Majorca is flatter. There are probably no tourist centers in Majorca where bikes cannot be hired for rides along the seafront where the terrain is always flat.
So you have no excuse, whether you are a professional or just a fan of cycling, in Majorca you will have the time of your life!
