Tips and info for cycling in Mallorca

The wonderful landscape and an excellent network of cycle paths make Mallorca a Paradise for cyclists. There are many ways to discover the island by bike. It is not for nothing that many professional cyclists come to the island every year to train. But Mallorca also offers ideal conditions for hobby cyclists. Whether with a racing bike, mountain bike or trekking and touring bike, there are tours and routes of all levels of difficulty all over the island. In the following article, we have compiled some interesting facts about arriving by bike and the most beautiful tours on the Balearic Island. 

The best time to travel for your tour

The ideal time to travel to Mallorca is between autumn and late spring. You can escape the cold, wet German weather and enjoy the wonderfully mild climate of the Mediterranean island at this time, which is perfect for cycling tours. At the time of the almond blossom from the end of January, Mallorca presents itself from its most beautiful side.

With an excellently signposted network of 1,250 kilometres of cycle paths, the island offers the best conditions for a successful stay. More than half of the routes are on secondary roads, so you can explore the island away from the traffic. If you cycle from east to west, the longest distance is 96 kilometres, and from north to south you have to pedal 76 kilometres. You want to take a break at the beach in between? No problem, because no place here is more than 40 kilometres from the sea.

What you need in your luggage (packing list)

Especially if you are going on a longer tour, a jacket and rain protection should definitely be in your luggage. Sunscreen, headgear and suitable sunglasses are also important companions. Suitable maps* are also ideal, so you can plan flexibly for longer tours.

Tips for flying with a bike

Bicycles must be registered with the airline as sports equipment or special luggage. The fees for flights within Europe are around 50 euros. The deadlines vary from airline to airline, so it is important to find out by which date your bike must be declared as sports or special luggage when you book your flight. Of course, the easiest way is to register your bike directly when booking.

Often there are certain weight or size requirements that must be observed. The steering wheel must be parallel to the tyre and the pedals turned inwards for transport. Now let the air out of the tyres and pack the bike in a bike bag or an appropriate box and off you go! Bear in mind that the bike will have to be transported to your accommodation once you arrive in Mallorca. Register the bike if you have booked a transfer to the hotel or holiday home.

Bicycle rental

If you don’t want to travel to the island with your own bike, you can easily rent one locally. There is a wide range of providers where occasional cyclists as well as mountain bikers will find a suitable model. If you prefer a special brand or a special bike, you should ideally make a reservation before you start your trip. If you have any problems, contact the rental company; in case of a breakdown on the road, car or bicycle repair shops can be found all over the island.

Discover Mallorca by bike

Mallorca offers many beautiful routes for cycling. Discover the sunny island actively by bike. Here is what you should keep in mind. Mallorca, the cyclists favourite island, offers far more than just sun and sea. It is not only the largest, but also the most diverse Spanish Mediterranean island. And – sometimes only a stone’s throw away from the highly frequented holiday centres in Platja de Palma, S’Arenal, Cala Millor, Alcúdia or Santa Ponça – tranquil, unspoilt and extremely scenic.

With all these charms and the island’s varied landscape, it’s a good idea to discover Mallorca on the saddle of a bicycle. Before you get on your bike or rent a bike and cycle the tours presented here, it is worthwhile to take note of a few useful tips.

Experiencing the largest Balearic Island by bike is probably the best way to experience the true character of the island. However: the geographical peculiarities are felt very quickly in the legs.

Mallorca is almost 3500 square kilometres in size, the length of the coast measures 581 kilometres. About one third of the coastline is developed for tourism, 50 kilometres are designated as bathing beaches.

The road network on Mallorca is very well developed and about 1200 kilometres long – so there are plenty of opportunities to get around by bike. The longest distance from west to east is 96 kilometres, from north to south 76 kilometres. There is no place on Mallorca that is further than 40 kilometres from the sea.

The Tramuntana mountains, the Sierra del Norte, have over 40 peaks over 1000 metres high. The highest peak is the Puig Mayor between Sollér and Lluc at 1445 metres. Here are some of the places that are most popular with holidaymakers. These include Sollér, Valldemosa, Fornalutx and the monastery of Lluc. It is also the Sierra de Tramuntana that protects the island like a rampart from the harsh northwest winds. To the southeast is the plain of Es Pla, which runs into the two bays of Bahía de Pollença and Bahía de Alcúdia to the north. These two bays are separated by the peninsula of La Victoria, which rises again quite high. The eastern part of Mallorca is characterised by a fjord-like coastline, where the Sierra de Levant rises to 500 metres between Santanyi and Cala Ratjada.

The best time to travel for cyclists

The cycling season on Mallorca starts early in the year: as early as the end of January, the almond blossom bathes the island in a sea of blue colours and makes cycling an experience. Until November and December, the pleasantly mild climate attracts touring cyclists, racing cyclists and mountain bikers on their bikes. Mallorca offers cyclists ideal conditions at almost any time of the year, only in midsummer you should not plan too long tours because of the heat and avoid the midday period. March to May, October and November are the most ideal months for longer cycling tours or a cycling holiday.

Rent a bike or take your own

If you don’t want to take your own bike with you, you will find numerous reputable providers on Mallorca who rent out high-quality bikes. Depending on your needs, you can choose from a wide range of models, from classic touring bikes to racing bikes or mountain bikes. E-bikes can also be rented. Those who would like to have a special bike can also book it in good time before the start of the trip.
