Pro Cycling Tours & Hire
Mallorca is a mecca for road cycling and many professional teams train there regularly. The island has wide roads with tarmac as smooth as glass, some epic climbs and descents and scenery to take your breath away (if the climbs don’t).
For any road cyclists or tri-athletes, Pollenca is the ideal place to base yourself as it is the perfect starting point for many of the classic routes. Mallorca Pro Cycling, the shop in Porto Pollenca which is run by Bruce, a British cycling fanatic, has a great range of high specification bikes which can be ordered online at rates - making it entirely unnecessary to risk your own bike on the flight. They specialise in road bikes but also have some good quality mountain bikes. It is best to book online before travelling so that your bike will be ready for you on arrival.
Bruce can provide you with a handy map of classic rides ranging from 40 to 120km, including the Cap de Formentor, the monastery at Lluc, and the epic ride to Sa Calobra (2000m of climbing and unforgettable descent) and if you are alone, you will be welcome to join his regular guided group rides.
