Gravel biking in Mallorca is a fantastic and unique cycling experience with many exciting gravel tracks and white roads to explore.
Mallorca is considered one of Europe’s best cycling destinations, with popular routes like the iconic Sa Calobra and Formentor. However, as residents and gravel enthusiasts, we want to introduce lesser-known dusty roads that offer a new perspective on the island.
For accommodation, we will still be based on the north island in Puerto de Pollenca. We can offer a shuttle to the start of the rides, and after the ride, you can relax on the beach and soak up the Mediterranean sun. While we suggest bringing your gravel bike for the most comfortable experience, bike hire is available on the island. Contact us, and we can organize bike hire services or provide information on how to buy gravel bikes.
We have tested and created the best gravel experience in Mallorca and can plan a bespoke cycling trip catering to varying abilities. Contact us for more information on planning a gravel cycling trip in Mallorca.
The destination airport for your cycling gravel holiday in Mallorca is Palma de Mallorca. You will be greeted by your driver (if you have requested a transfer) who will be ready and waiting for you to help load your luggage and transfer you to your hotel. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a friendly member of our team who will assist you with anything you need to know about the hotel or where the bike storage room is. Our aim is to make you as comfortable and relaxed as possible before an incredible gravel cycling experience in Mallorca.
“We can create a customized plan for any group, and we can be flexible with routes, speeds and distances. However, here’s an example of an amazing gravel cycling holiday in Mallorca.

Distance decided on the day.
Set up your bike or collect from the bike hub on site at the hotel. One of our guides will be on hand to help and assist.
If time permits, we will head out for a gentle ride to acclimatise and to check the bike set up.
Riding towards the coast we will then drop in to Arta before riding the Via Verde route. An awesome project from the Spanish government to recover old railroad tracks, now turned into a friendly gravel road for everyone to use. We will then stop in the heart of Manacor stopping for lunch and coffee. 80km, 800m climbing.
Riding: 140 km and 1800 m of climbing
The queen stage of the trip, because of its distance, climbing, and technical trails, was an event that only ran once before COVID took over. However, the route became legendary, and the event became a myth lasting long in the memories of the island’s gravel community. After an epic day on the gravel bike we finish with celebratory drinks on the seafront upon arrival back in Puerto de Pollenca.
Optional easy last day cafe spin to the Historic town of Petra. 30km, 470m climbing.
