12 tips for making this your best Mallorca trip yet



  1. Plan ahead. Do your research and choose whether you are coming with a tour company or doing everything yourself. 
  2. Book in advance. No surprises or running around with your hair on fire as departure time approaches. 
  3. Book with reputable businesses. Check reviews and ask around.
  4. Do the training you need to. Fitter is better!
  5. Pack correctly. Layers are best. Can be cold in the mountains. Jacket for the long downhills after the hot sweaty uphills. What are you doing / wearing off the bike?
  6. Get your bike serviced if you are taking it with (need a bike box?) or book something decent instead.
  7. Suncreen and liquids. It gets warm.
  8. Queen stage. Which is going to be the highlight of your visit?
  9. Get lost. There are 7500km of cami rurals (rural roads / lanes). Get in them with time to spare and just meander. You will never be far from knowing where you are again.
  10. Local drivers will treat you with respect. Offer them the same.
  11. Bike / body rescue. No brainer. Sh*t happens when you least want it to.
  12. Get going early to beat the heat and the traffic. Especially for Cap Formentor and Sa Calobra.
