Mind the fact that not everything is about calm and relax when in Mallorca. The combination between beach and mountain together with the good climate of the island during most of the year make practically any type of “outdoor” activity possible. Variety, dynamism and the possibility of choosing whatever you’d like to do. This is Majorca.
Once active, stay always active – Majorca offers you the perfect way!
Having this as a beginning point, it is not surprising that Mallorca is a very attractive destination for all lovers of active tourism, offering a variety of possibilities, among which: cycling, diving, paragliding, kite surfing, climbing, hang gliding, kayaking, etc. In the end, if you have an active lifestyle, who says that you have to leave it away?
Therefore, if you are here with your own car, or if you’ve rented one, take care at driving!
˜Reaching from the previously stated affirmation to our subtitle implies a little bit of change, at least one of perspective. Although, we can assure you that there is no exaggeration to say that Mallorca is a cycling perfection destination, not only in the city of Palma.
Naturally, we invite you not to take our word for it. You are more than welcomed to try it by yourself! Just as Sir Bradley Wiggins did, being the 2012 Tour de France winner, with multiple Olympic trophies, described the island as “Scalextric set for cyclists”, and he is not the only one: 2013 Tour champion Chris Froome, the Team GB track cyclists, most of Europe’s top professional teams, and upwards of 50,000 cyclists of all abilities and ambitions join him in the cooler months from October to May to stretch their legs and pit themselves against the stunning scenery and overwhelming roads.
