Travelling to Majorca in winter is one of those alternative delights that not everyone knows about. The island is dyed a special colour perfect to discover everything that this destination offers in a few months in which the mass tourism is a vague memory and the temperatures begin to warm up. And if you love cycling then you are in right place! At Garden Hotels we want you to get the most out of your holidays and to discover the best cycling routes in Majorca with this exclusive list.
A hotel adapted to your requirements
Because before you start pedalling, you need to have a clear idea about your base camp. Our Alcudia Garden Aparthotel has exclusive facilities for cyclists including a cycling station, adapted meals, workshop, specific rooms for cyclists, special massages, as well as a large number of amenities so you can relax however you like. And not only that! But you can enjoy other facilities such as the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, live music, themed parties, Mediterranean cuisine and much more.
An outing by bicycle
If you like pedalling and family getaways, this section will interest you. Alcudia is the starting point for a large number of cycling routes perfect for beginners that will help you to discover the beautiful north coast of Majorca. Some of these routes are the coastal path between the Port of Alcudia and the Port of Pollença -perfect for a walk along the shores of the Mediterranean-, the circular route of Port of Alcudia – Santa Margalida – Sa Pobla – Playa de Muro – Puerto de Alcudia, a path perfectly situated to explore the nearby towns, and Puerto de Alcudia – Can Picafort, perfect for an outing with children due to its short distance.
A “trip” for regular cyclists
By ramping up the difficulty scale, we find some moderately difficult routes with which you can measure your capabilities against the Majorcan roads. Such as the majestic Alcudia – Park de s’Albufera route, a tour through where you can explore one of the most prestigious natural parks in the Balearic Islands. Other interesting runs are the ascent to the impressive Formentor lighthouse -a absolute must for any cyclist, and the climb to the Cura Monastery, an architectural gem located in Algaida with stunning views.
A challenge for cycling experts
And we will repeat with emphasis on the expert cyclists. The most popular, without a doubt, is the route that connects Puerto de Alcudia with Sa Calobra by a heart-stopping highway with incredible views. There are many combinations for this route, although we recommend you go through the town of Caimari, where you can take a breather with, for example, a traditional variat (a traditional local tapas dish). Another diamond to explore is the Alcudia – Valldemossa route, which will leave you in one of the most picturesque villages in Majorca where you can try the Coca de Patata, a gastronomic symbol throughout. Other routes to test yourself are Alcudia – Soller, Alcudia – Palma by through Sierra de Tramuntana mountains and Alcudia – Bunyola, amongst others.
