Your cycling tour in Mallorca starts in Sineu, the island’s former capital, perfectly positioned for exploring the captivating inland regions. Sineu, nestled centrally on the island, serves as an ideal starting point to experience Mallorca’s diverse and charming inland landscapes.
One of Sineu’s standout experiences is its traditional farmers market, a vibrant event dating back to the 1300s, held every Wednesday. This market transforms the town into a festive hub, complete with locals donning traditional attire, live music (weather permitting), and an array of local products and animals for sale. It’s a cultural spectacle not to be missed, and with careful planning, your arrival could coincide with this weekly highlight, offering a unique insight into Mallorcan culture.

Ride through the heart of Mallorca
Nestled at the base of the majestic Tramuntana Mountains, Selva is a charming village offering many cycling experiences. Whether you venture directly into the mountains, explore the Tramuntana foothills to the north and south, or enjoy the gentler, flatter landscapes inland, Selva is a cyclist’s delight.
Your bike ride between Sineu and Selava begins with a southern descent, then winds northward towards Selva, where you will stay for the next two nights. The full 88 km route unfolds through undulating countryside backroads, leading to Algaida and ascending towards the Cura Monastery. A coffee break at the summit comes highly recommended. From there, you’ll descend into the picturesque Binissalem wine region, heading towards Puig de Santa Magdalena. Here, a Pamboli lunch is mandatory. For a more relaxed ride, opt for shorter routes of 54, 65, or 75 km, each skipping one or both of the challenging climbs.
We’re planning an early departure today with our goal being to ride to Cap Formentor Lighthouse, one of the most renowned cycling paths. It’s a dream destination for cyclists around the world.
We love to pedal with little traffic, making the early hours of the morning the perfect time to enjoy the ride. Offering breathtaking vistas of the Mediterranean Sea, this journey is characterized by its continuous ascents and descents, along with a series of twists and turns leading to Mallorca’s northernmost point.
After visiting the lighthouse, you might consider taking a scenic detour to the picturesque Cala Sant Vincent for a delightful seafood meal by the waterside.
The round trip from the hotel is an extensive 98 Km. However, we provide shuttle services to initiate your ride from Port Pollensa, reducing the distance to a manageable 65 Km.
King of the Mountain Ride
Port de Soller, nestled in a stunning valley at the heart of the Tramuntana mountain range, is a breathtaking natural harbor where the majestic mountains meet the Mediterranean Sea. This area is renowned for its succulent oranges and the exquisite Soller Red Prawns.

Your epic ride traversing the Tramuntana includes a must-see detour to the world-renowned Sa Calobra. This ride is a highlight for any cyclist visiting Mallorca and a key reason for the island’s fame in the cycling community. Your cycling day begins with the scenic ascent from Caimari to Coll de Sa Bataia and is followed by a thrilling 14 km descent from the Monnaber Tunnel, leading directly to Port de Soller. Covering 70 km with nearly 2000m of climbing, this route is both challenging and exhilarating. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, shuttle options are available.
