Three must do iconic rides
Also known as the Lighthouse ride at the tip of the island. Probably the most stunning 40km ride (just my opinion) the ride traverses the winding road as it snakes through limestone jagged rocks. The roller-coaster takes you through quiet forest and out on to exposed sections of road with the cliffs plunging into the sea below. Enjoy a well deserved Coffee & cake (their huge apple cake will refresh those parts other cake’s cant reach) at the Lighthouse and the views just stunning!
Probably the most iconic of all the climbs everyone wants to do Sa Colobra. At 9.5km and averaging 7% this is where British Cycling and Team INEOS have honed their skills. Due to it’s location, in order to ride up it, you must descend it as the only way down to the start point is the one road atop the Coll des Reis.
That means you can swoosh down enjoying the amazing switchbacks peppered all the way down the climb.
On the climb up you’ll pass cutouts in the rock, ride along sheer cliff faces and enjoy sea-view scenery as you roll your way to the top.
The highest climb in Mallorca gaining 787m and a massive 14km of climbing with an average gradient of 6%
Starting just outside Soller you wind up the hillside arriving at the Monnaber Tunnel some sixty minutes latter, the road is long, winding and smooth.
After you leave the top it’s a glorious descent sweeping some 5km down to the Gorg Blau and Cuber reservoirs then it’s up and down but mostly down past the aqueduct above Sa Calobra there is a good place to meet up re-group and have an ice cream or cake at the roadside cafe, before heading back to Puerto de Pollensa.
