Cycling in Palma and Mallorca

Palma is ideal for hiring a bike to see the Old Town, around the bay and to visit the Marinas and local beaches. There is a wonderful cycle lane and wide promenade around Palma Bay, flat and easy riding, which goes east to S'Arenal (approx 6 miles) passing through the little harbour of Portixol, the old fishing area of Molinar with its little bay, cycling right alongside the ocean, to the pretty beach of Cuitat Jardi with its relaxed cafes and beyond...

Mallorca is well known for its great cycling accross the island and during the winter and into spring, most of the professional cycling teams use Mallorca as a training base proving that they believe Mallorca offers some of the best cycling in Europe.
