The cycling season starts in Palma


Autumn attracts a large number of cyclists to Mallorca, where there is an incredible variety of opportunities to explore the island by bike, as well as an infrastructure developed to meet the needs of cyclists at all levels.

The Balearic islands have 40 signposted cycle touring routes, with over 500 kilometres of breath-taking scenery, for cycling in competitions held outside the hottest months, such as the BBT Volta Cicloturista Formentera, the Ibiza BTT, the Volta Menorca BTT and the Epic Camí de Cavalls, which runs around the perimeter of the island along the old Minorcan communications route, and the International Masters Cycling Week, held on Majorca in October.

Mallorca hosts the International Masters Cycling Week, which this year will take place between 10 and 15 October, in which more than 300 participants regularly compete in the two races that make up the event, the Tour of Majorca for Masters Challenge and the European Masters Cup.

The good weather is also a factor that attracts amateur cyclists, who also have two routes in the city that run along the coast: the Paseo Marítimo Route, which runs between Porto Pi and Playa de Palma, and the Coastal Route, which starts in Portixol and ends in Cala Estancia, where you can enjoy the rich natural and ethnological heritage of the Palma coastline.
