The other side of the sunshine island
Glittering festivals, magnificent yachts and the vibrant life in the buzzing city of Palma de Majorca – this is how many of us know the Balearic island. But for cyclists, Majorca also opens up a completely different side: namely, the way the island originally, and actually is. Discover the beautiful simplicity of Majorca on your bike, stop off at bubbling streams and enjoy the beauty of this fantastic island. Secluded bays, ancient olive groves and rare species of Spanish flora and fauna will greet you at the edge of the cycle path.

Bike paths in Majorca
Majorca is known among cyclist as a Mecca for the sport. Whether leisure cyclists, ambitious amateurs or professional athletes – there will be something for everyone. Majorca’s cycle path network covers the entire island. There are not as many official cycle paths as in German-speaking countries but we have found the safest and traffic-free side roads and farm roads for you, so cycling is guaranteed to be fun.
The climate in Majorca
The sunny island of Majorca lives up to its reputation. With an average of 7.6 hors of sunshine, the island promises us mostly optimal cycling weather. Even the cool winter months have an average temperature of 15 to 20 degrees, pleasant cycling weather. A particularly beautiful time in Majorca is when the almond blossoms, which takes place from about the end of January to mid-March. During this time the entire island blooms to a fragrant sea of flowers. But spring, summer and autumn are also perfect for cycling, Majorca is a tour for every season.
The Mallorcan cuisine
It’s probably the sun that gives Mallorcan vegetables their incomparable aroma. Of course, local delicacies taste most delicious in the hidden bodegas that can be found all over the island. Try a deliciously fresh trampó (salad of tomatoes, peppers and onions), a Mallorcan suckling pig, Arroz brut (spicy rice dish with meat or fish) or would you prefer Mallorcan soup? Add a glass of cool water from the many springs and the meal is complete. Well, maybe it’d be a little more complete with a glass of well-chilled Mallorcan wine. But then there is only a piece of almond cake missing and the evening can be filled with anticipation for the next day.
