Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and is only about 2 hours by air from Germany. Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the island and central hub. The image of the island decisively shapes the mountain range of the Serra de Tramuntana. Which extends from the northwest to the northeast. An ideal area to rent a road bike and do an extensive climb between Andtrax and Cap Formentor. While the southern part of the island provides more of a moderate flat profile for relaxed scooter tours.
Popular training areas in Mallorca for racing is the region Port Alcudia / Playa de Muro and El Arenal / Palma. Playa de Muro is located in the northeast of the island and is especially to highlight the cycling holiday. Rent a road bike in Port Alcudia or Playa de Muro and you have the ideal tour starting point. Since both the Tramuntana mountains can be reached in no more than a 3 / 4h travel time, as well as the quiet interior of the island can be explored. Even flat relaxed road bike tours are no problem here.
