Mallorca is quite rightly called cycling paradise. Its climate, roads, varied landscape, gastronomy and cultural attractions provide the perfect backdrop for your perfect cycling location in southern Europe. Whether you cycle through the flat inland or through the hills or mountains, you will be amazed by the fantastic landscapes and unique views.
Mallorca is such a hugely popular holiday destination for a reason. With mild winters, a high number of sunshine hours and little rain, Mallorca offers year-round perfect conditions for sport and relaxation.
In February and March, Mallorca is at its most beautiful. With green expanses of fields filled with almond trees in full bloom, it is a beautiful time of year to visit Mallorca. The average temperature is around 14°C.
April is a very popular cycling month in Mallorca. It is warmer in Mallorca than in mainland Europe and the first sunbathers report to the beach. You are guaranteed arm-and-leg rides with an average temperature of 17°C.
May and June are the first real summer months in Mallorca. Evenings without a jumper on the terrace and while cycling, a lovely warm sun on arms and legs with an average temperature around 25°C.
September and October are fantastic cycling months in Mallorca. The Mediterranean climate is very mild at this time of year. The sea water is warm and provides a faint sea breeze in the afternoon, a great contrast to spring. Daytime temperatures still easily exceed 20 degrees and the sun is out. In short: fantastic cycling weather!
Mallorca has a well-maintained cycling road network and there is relatively little traffic on the island. Cycling in Mallorca offers a unique combination of flat, hilly and mountainous options, and all within a short distance of each other too.
You choose a challenging ride through the mountains, along the coastline with beautiful views or a more flat route through the beautiful inland. Every day there is a beautiful ride on the programme for you.
You can also set off with an experienced guide from Rompelberg Cycling Holidays. In a medium-sized group, you will be taken along the most beautiful routes. Full enjoyment together with cyclists of a similar level and a shared passion. The guide shows the way and makes sure everyone has a great day on the bike. Our guides know all the beautiful routes, hidden climbs and beautiful terraces for a well-earned rest.
If it was too hard or too easy, just choose another group the next day. In fact, there are guided group tours at different levels.
If you prefer to go out alone or with your own group, no problem of course. We will provide you with tips and give you a map and the GPX routes.
The mountain ridge ‘Serra de Tramuntana’ received UNESCO’s World Heritage Status on 27 June 2011, as an area of great scenic and cultural significance. In this mountain ridge you will find picturesque villages, where it seems as if time has stood still. Our guided routes take you to villages like Andratx, Deia and Valldemossa. Order a café con leche in a charming village square while you rest your legs.
