With its 300 days of sunshine a year and average temperatures between 10°C and 26°C, Mallorca is said to be an all-year-round paradise for road cyclists. Based on the 3 days spent around Palma I sum up my insights about cycling in Mallorca. Spoiler: it really is a heaven for roadies! 🙂
After two challenging days in Mallorca – a full-day ride with more than 1.300 m climbed and an (almost) recovery ride with 860 m climbed, for the final day we chose a shorter ride. The main reason was the time constraint, due to an early afternoon flight back home.
My cycling holiday in Mallorca started off with a bang – a full-day ride with more than 1.300 m climbed. As you might imagine, the second day I wanted something a bit more relaxing, but still challenging enough to take advantage of the Mallorquin scenery.
