Moderate level

La Victoria

Skills: moderate          Hours: 6,5          Distance: 65 km          650 altimeter

Strap those helmets on and let‘s get pedalling! This off-road day trip boasts stunning surrounding and a unique riding route! This tour has a big variety of trails in different levels.

In this ride we cycle through Alcudia’s charming old town centre along its 14th century city wall. We‘ll continue along the coast passing some gorgeous bays where we‘ll get to see the fabulous views from the cliffs at St. Joan Bay. 

We push on over tranquil roads with a moderate incline in order to reach La Victoria peninsula. This is like ‘trail-central,’ as from here there are many different routes to take, again depending on your strength and skills. There is one path through a pine forest which culminates in a short but steep climb to Coll Baix. There is also an extra challenging lap where the trail is made up of loose gravel and bumpy rocks on the downs and one where we go back to the dirt road which crosses the peninsula to the island‘s west coast.

 This side of La Victoria is perfect if you want to work on your skills as you’ll need to maintain a tight grip on your handlebar while we scream through the overgrown parts of these dense woods! While the adrenalin is still pumping we take a quick break to dive off a cliff right into the cooling sea! Exhilarating! From here there are two different routes to choose from, but first we’ll feast on a fresh and tasty restaurant lunch! Refuelled and rejuvenated, it’s time to get back on the bike, and whatever route you go for the spectacular surroundings will make for an epic ride!

Formentor

Skills: good fitness level          Hours: 5-6         Distance: Variations from 50 -60 km          700 -900 altimeter

Cape Formentor is a historical and strikingly beautiful spot, known locally as the ‘meeting point of the winds’. On this trip you’ll get to see the peninsula’s dramatic cliffs, dazzling bays and tropical palms and cover approximately 50 to 60 kilometres, with 700 to 900 metre climb. Note that this may not be a highly technical ride, but it will be a very long one nonetheless.

We’ll warm up by pedalling along quiet lanes typical for this part of Mallorca until we reach the end of Port de Pollenca’s pine walk where the road is flat. Our first climb towards the Cape Formentor look out ascends steadily, and after 2 kilometres of ‘clean’ road we reach the viewing platform: a super popular tourist hotspot. You’ll soon see why..

Next we’ll swap the crowds for solitude as we follow easy to moderately technical trails pedalling over rocky parts, sand, stone and forest floor in order to get to a secret lookout. Here you‘ll get an exclusive view of the famous Hotel Formentor -home to high society guests. Hey, even the Dalai Lama once stayed here!

At a small secluded bay we take a break and go for a refreshing swim. On our way back we can add a lap passing another stunning bay choosing either the paved road or a challenging uphill trail. Although from here on it’s all flat, make sure you save some of that pedal power for your push back to the shop.

Artà, sierra de Levante 

Skills: good fitness         Hours: 6 – 8 (including transport)     Distance: 40 – 60 km          800 m climb

This 35 kilometre tour starts off with a spin in the Chainguide van to Artà, an ancient town packed with history and located on the island‘s east coast. From there we head to the biking area of the beautiful nature reserve, Parc Natural Llevant. This tour also offers a few variations depending on your riding skills.

We get going through the narrow streets of Artà village and cycle along quiet lanes for approximately 3 kilometres until we reach the entrance of the nature reserve.

We continue along easy-to-ride gravel paths both ascending and descending; as we reach our first uphill struggle we get rewarded with a view of the sparkly blue sea in the distance, a preview of what’s still to come. We push up hill to the Puig de Tudossa plateau and at 400 metres in altitude get an absolutely breathtaking view over the entire bay of Alcudia, the backcountry and the Tramuntana mountains in the distance. Sensational!

But it’s at this point where we experience the best part of this trail: we turn onto a single track which ends up at a beautiful deserted bay complete with white sandy beach and crystal clear waters. This is the sort of stuff dreams are made of guys! During our entire descent we won’t lose sight of the glittery, blue Mediterranean Sea.

We alternate ups, downs, bushland, coarse gravel and rocky terrain. The following lower part is equally demanding, but the views of the bay more than compensate for the challenge! We take a break at the white sandy beach and tropical-like turquoise sea so we can splash around, cool down and take in this bay’s extraordinary beauty.

We‘ll reach our next destination, the ‘Albarca’ watchtower, soon after, by pedalling along the coast. We stop to climb up the ladder where you can take the kind of pics that are bound to make your mates back home jealous ;). Then follows the last testing climb of this trip which will be compensated by a refreshing drink while chilling out by cool, spring water. We descend on a clean and easy but fast track back down to the base of the nature reserve.

Back in Artà we finish the tour in one of the town’s best restaurants to feast on the tasty local food and homemade, mouthwatering slices of cake, before we hop back in the van and drive back to Alcudia.

Lluc

Skills: good fitness         Hours: 5     Distance: 45 km          900 altimeter

On this trail we‘ll take you to Mallorca’s wide Serra de Tramuntana mounatin range, one of the absolute best MTB spots on the island! This ride is about 45 km long and consists of a 900 meter climb.

Packed and prepared, we set off in our Chainguide van for a 20 minute drive to Pollença, the start of this tour.

We kick off through the narrow alleyways of the age-old Roman city of Pollença before we follow gravel and asphalt roads for approximately 4 kms, passing fields, gardens and villas until we reach an old pilgrim’s path.

From here on, we’ll be off-road as we pedal over gravel and light stones. Next we ascend steadily through switchbacks while taking in the spectacular natural landscape. The 26 hairpins bends through oak forest, allow us to ascend rapidly. We pass several gates and high plateaus where impressive olive and carob trees grow.

We reach our highest point at approximately 600 metres in altitude and subsequently speed downhill on gravel and forest roads. A rocky trail leads us down to the monastery where we take a break for some freshly baked almond cake (a local delicacy!) and a cool, refreshing drink.

We follow the main road back to Pollença and after our last short climb we’re back on the pilgrim’s path we took at the start of the trail. From here it’s all downhill in serpentines, so prepare for a full 30 minutes of raging adrenaline! Next we take a few cheeky shortcuts to enjoy the single track through the forest; for many riders this is the highlight of the whole trip! The trail back to the van is flow, with naturally formed berms and a few rough parts; this is mountain biking at it’s very best!

Massanella Cañón

Skills: experienced         Hours: 4-6      Distance: 50-65 km          750 m climb

The 8 kilometre downhill stretch is the core of this trip. But you’ll need to earn it before you own it by by pedalling uphill first! After a trip in our van we‘ll reach  500 metres in altitude and are in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, an impressive range which stretches along the entire island of Mallorca.

We set off on a wide nature trail through the forest which has some tough uphill sections. After we’ve climbed up to the pass we can finally enjoy the charge of an 8 km downhill ride. The wider track winds down and is coated with stones and gravel. Some parts are rough while along others you can easily gain some speed. Be warned: this down is guaranteed to make your body shake and your face grin! Next we head through the impressive canyons and will feel the temperature rise while descending into the valley, here the path is clean and smooth.

By reaching the small village of Caimari, we have returned to civilisation. From here we take the paved road uphill. The mountain road, which we share with other cyclists and cars, steadily increases in altitude. Plus points of this road are the great views and cooling shade from the pine trees.

After this 8km uphill pedal we reach the monastery of Lluc, where we will pause to tuck into some food in a local restaurant. On our way back to Pollença we follow the main road and take on the last short climb of this tour. Next we’re on an old pilgrims‘ path made up of loose gravel and stones and from now on it’s all downhill in serpentines. We’ll take some cheeky shortcuts so we can enjoy the single track through an oak forest; the highlight of the trip for many riders! The trail flows with naturally formed berms and some rough parts.
