Not fit enough? Get fit enough! This is the route your cycling soul will forever thank you for. If you are only ever going to ride one more cycling route in your life, this should be it. There are coastal as well as forest views, exhilarating descents, demanding climbs and undulating roads with excellent surfaces and perfect cafés for cyclists to refuel and regroup. Being Mallorca, the surfaces and the weather are normally good too!
To tackle the best cycle route in Mallorca, take one of the scheduled bike buses from Alcudia; Port Pollença or Can Picafort down to Andratx and complete this bucket list cycle challenge that you owe to your cycling soul.
Choose between distances that vary from 115km with 2400m of climbing and “The Big Daddy Challenge” of 162km which includes the climbs of Port des Canonge, Port Valldemossa and Sa Calobra with a total of 4300m of climbing. These routes are not for everybody. If you are not fit enough, you now have the perfect reason to get fit enough!

How do Mallorca Cycle Shuttle look after your bikes? As well as being fully licensed and insured, they look after your bikes as if they are your own, packing them between mattresses in the secure custom trailers.
How long is the journey? Pollença to Andratx takes on average 75 minutes, depending on the traffic.
How far in advance must I book? As soon as you have booked your flights to get here. Even though we are running over 1000 scheduled services this year, we do have limited capacity and the most popular days do sell out.
What happens if the weather is bad on the day I have booked? We quickly reschedule if the weather plays up. With 308 sunny days each year this is not normally an issue but it can happen. We suggest booking the highlight of your trip early rather than late in your stay, leaving a spare day to change to in case.
Here is the bike bus schedule. In addition the Mallorca Bicycle Rescue service provides a safety net for those who have pre booked their cover. This allows you to confidently venture far and wide without worrying that bike or body break down.
