Route

Day 1: Arrival in Mallorca
Day 2: Circular ride from Ruberts via Sineu and Petra
Day 3: Circular ride from Ruberts via Alaró and Santa María
Day 4: Circular ride from Ruberts via Llucmajor and Montuiri
Day 5: Ride from Ruberts to Pollença
Day 6: Circular ride from Pollença via S’Albufera
Day 7: Circular ride from Pollença via Alcudia or Lluc
Day 8: End of arrangement

Day 1:    Arrival in Mallorca

Arrival at your agroturismo in Ruberts, where you will stay for 4 nights. Your accommodation is a classic Mallorquin manour house built in the 15th century and surrounded by vineyards and apricot, citrus and almond orchards. It has been rebuilt into a charming and comfortable hotel, with swimming pool, two terraces and an excellent restaurant.

Day 2:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Sineu and Petra

You start off by cycling through beautiful countryside, among olive orchards and vineyards, to reach the historical town of Sineu, with its impressive Gothic church, narrow lanes and lively outdoor terraces. You then continue to Petra, birthplace of Fray Juniperus Serra (the European ‘founder’ of California), where the monastery and iconographic museum are worth a visit. The hilltop Hermitage of Bonnay is a prime spot to stop for lunch. The last section of the route follows quiet country roads and dirt tracks back to your hotel.

Challenge: 39 or 47km, with 155 or 325m in ascent. 

Day 3:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Alaró and Santa María

After crossing the Palma-Inca highway, you traverse almond and olive orchards on the slopes of the Tramuntana mountain range to reach thevillage of Alaró, with its lovely castle. To avoid 3km of heavy traffic on the road, you follow ancient footpaths linking Binissalem and Alaró (with just a short 500m section which is not suitable for cycling). On your return, you ‘sail down’ a beautiful inland road which winds through an authentic rural landscape, past impressive estates and historic villages.

Challenge: 47km, with 200m in ascent.

Day 4:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Llucmajor and Montuiri

There will be plenty of classic Mallorquin windmills to admire as you turn South. You’ll have the choice of visiting 3 hermitages on the ascent up Puig de Randa (450m extra to ascend), but the scenery is just as nice if you choose to cycle directly to Llucmajor then around the Puig. Later, a dirt road takes you to Montuiri and back to the hotel.

Challenge: 45 or 56km, with 235 or 685m in ascent.

Day 5:    Ride from Ruberts to Pollença

Today you bid farewell to your kind hosts at Son Jordá, then ride north toward Costitx and Llubí, enjoying a rather relaxed tour. Once you have reached Campanet, you peddle through a quiet valley, among carob and almonds orchards to reach Pollença. Though you have to cycle for 2km on a rather busy main road, your reward is arrival at another comfortable and charming hotel.

Challenge: 45km, with 185m in ascent.

Day 6:    Circular ride from Pollença via S’Albufera

This cycling route takes you to the tourist mecca of Sa Pobla – with an optional side excursion via Muro and Santa Margalida – riding through typical Mallorcan landscapes among windmills and fields of artichokes. You then reach a tiny but beautiful corner of the world, the marshlands at S’Albufera, a section where you can see many interesting birds.

Challenge: 42 or 68km, with 60 or 150m in ascent. 

Day 7:    Circular ride from Pollença via Alcudia or Lluc

Today you choose between an easy ride to beautiful beaches on the north coast or a strenuous ascent to Lluc Monastery (especially demanding on hot days or at weekends, when there’s lots of traffic).

Challenge; 25 or 50km, with 50 or 525m in ascent.

Day 8:    End of arrangement

After breakfast today, your arrangement ends.

Arrival in Sencelles

From Palma airport (PMI) to Ruberts-Sencelles; Taxi transfer from Palma airport to your first accommodation in Ruberts is included in your arrangement.

If you travel with your own bike:

  • You can go directly biking from the airport to your first accommodation with support of the maps we will provide you with.
  • Or you can travel by train with your bike to Plaça Espanya in Palma de Mallorca. In that case you will have to check schedules of trains that allow to transport bicycles (may have additional cost).

From Palma de Mallorca ferry terminal: In case your flight arrives to Barcelona airport (BCN) and you have taken a ferry to Palma de Mallorca, from there you can go by taxi to your first accommodation (approx 40 €). There's also a shuttle bus from the Airport to Palma Train Station (departures every 15 min)

Departure from Pollença

There are several bus services a day from Pollença to Palma de Mallorca (duration 1,5hrs). Bus leaves you at Plaça de Espanya in Palma. From there you can get the shuttle to Palma airport (Line 1). It runs every 20 minutes

If you are travelling to / from Barcelona by car and taking the ferry to Mallorca, it is best to leave your car in Barcelona.
