- All breakfasts are included. Meals in Mallorca are usually based around fish, vegetables and pork with plenty of garlic and olive oil. Restaurant evening menus will normally feature a fish of the day and Paella as well as local specialities like Frit Mallorqui and Arros Brut. Pizzerias are also very common on the island so you will never be too far from a very nice stone baked pizza! Lunch is usually a large meal in Spain and lunch stops can be quite long. You have the option to stop at local restaurants or pick up picnic lunches from supermarkets on the days when lunch is at a monastery as restaurant options are limited. For breakfast you can expect a continental buffet with eggs, cold meats, cheeses as well as cereal and pastry options. Mallorca is well known for its sweet treats so when on the island make sure you try the famous Ensaimada (a delicious pastry covered in icing sugar) and the Rubiols pastries which are filled with jam, chocolate and sweet pumpkin.

Circular ride through southern Mallorca to Es Trenc Beach.
For our first day on the bikes we head south through the charming towns of Porreres and Campos as we make our way to the long white sandy beach of Es Trenc. Here we can stop for a swim and some lunch in the seaside town of Sa Rapita so make sure you put your trunks and swimming costume in the support van! After lunch we head back inland via the largest municipality in Mallorca, Llucmajor, where we can stop to look around the town and do a bit of shopping before carrying on towards our hotel. Once back at the hotel he can relax by the pool before going out for dinner. Cycle 70km with 450m of ascent
Ride to the Monastery of San Salvador for great views over Mallorca.
After breakfast we get on the bikes and head back towards Porreres and then on to the town of Felanitx which is situated in Mallorca’s second largest wine producing area, Pla & Llevent. From here we can see the day’s lunch stop destination, the Sanctuary of Saint Salvador which is situated on top of the hill overlooking the town. The climb up to the sanctuary is about 5km long and at a steady gradient. The views from the top make the effort of climbing up there well worthwhile and we will spend some time here having lunch and looking around the sanctuary before enjoying the well-earned descent back into town. From Felantix we head back to our hotel in Montuiri via a different route. Cycle 63km with 700m of ascent
Ride from Montuiri to Alaro; visit to Llucmajor monastery.
Today’s ride is a point to point route as we start to head further north on the island. We start off by cycling to the small town of Randa where we can visit the picturesque Sanctuary de Cura before continuing on through Llucmajor, Algaida and the beautiful town of Santa Maria del Cami. Finally our route takes us to our overnight accommodation in Alaro where we stay for the next two nights. Cycle 51km with 533m ascent
Circular ride through the foot hills of the Tremuntana mountains.
In the morning we will head out of Alaro and start to climb into the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains to the hillside town of Orient. Here we stop for lunch and can go for a walk around the town before getting back on the bikes for a brilliant descent down into Santa Maria de Cami. In Santa Maria we can stop again for an ice cream, a coffee or to do some shopping before heading back towards Alaro for the night. Cycle 47km with 700m of ascent
Visit the Caves of Campanet on the way to Alcudia.
We start the days ride with a short descent out of Alaro before heading north towards the caves of Campanet. Here we stop to take a look around these underground caves to see the ancient stalactites and stalagmites. After visiting the caves we get back on the bikes to cycle to the walled town of Alcudia on the northern coast of the island. Our accommodation tonight is within the old walled town of Alcudia so there are plenty of nice cafes, bars, restaurants and shops close by to visit in the afternoon and evening. Cycle 47km with 450m of ascent
Cycle along the coast to the stone town of Pollenca.
Today we head out of Alcudia and cycle along the bike paths which follow the coast all the way to Port de Pollenca, from here we head inland through quiet back roads to the charming old town of Pollenca. We spend some time exploring the maze of narrow streets and market stalls in this beautiful stone town, or we can climb the steps to the church which has an amazing view of the mountains and the coast in the distance. After lunch we will cycle back to Alcudia and go out for a final meal as a group. For anyone wanting more of a challenge today, there is the option to do a self-guided ride out to the Cap de Formentor and its lighthouse which is situated at the most easterly point of the Island (this will add roughly 30km and 300m ascent to the days ride). Cycle 39km with 250m of ascent
After breakfast the trip ends in Alcudia.
