The island of Mallorca has all the best ingredients needed to put together any dish to satisfy the most gourmet of cycling palates. A magnificent climate, dreamy sea views and mountain landscapes that can be crossed via the more than 1200km of secondary roads that are totally suitable and ready for cycling on - all of this, and more, make it the ideal environment for even the keenest of cyclists.
In addition, many professional and amateur cycling events are organised in Mallorca.
Cala Mesquida cycling routes
There are countless cycling routes all over the island. But if we focus on Cala Mesquida - a beach that has beautiful turquoise water, fine-sand dunes and the purest of Mediterranean forests - we recommend the following five routes:
1. Sa Bassa-Arenalet D'Albarca-Aubarca-Cala Torta-Cala Mesquida
Before taking on this route you need to ensure your legs have been through enough biking hours because this one is hilly and challenging. Having said that, the views more than makes up for the effort!
2. Cala Mesquida - Sa Duaia
A good opportunity to get to know the area around Cala Mesquida during a short but intense ride.
3. Cala Mesquida-Puig Figuer
This route is a similar distance to the previous one but is more complicated. The landscapes, however, are just as beautiful.
4. Cala Mesquida - Parc de Llevant
Difficulty: Very difficult.
This route is not suitable for cyclists who are just starting out or who are not in good physical shape. Indeed, it is quite a test even for genuine two-wheeled gladiators.
5. Cala Mesquida- Cala Ratjada
This route starts and finishes at two coves that could compete with each other in terms of beauty and nature in its purest form. It would be very difficult, however, to pick a winner because both are in the premier league. It is undoubtedly our favourite route for cycling with family and friends, provided they are up to a certain level in terms of cycling without an engine.
