Mallorca Day 1 - 1st November

After many years of being told how brilliant Mallorca is as a cycling island, I finally made it! Three days after riding the national hill climb championships in the damp and chilly Lake District, I found myself in balmy Mallorca.

We picked up our bikes from #bikeislandmallorca and after a few tweaks, we were on our way to the famous lighthouse at Cap Formentor - one of THE rides that HAS to be done!

We did a loop around Port de Pollenca to get warmed up as the ride to the lighthouse immediately goes into the climb of Coll de la Creueta. Once on the climb I immediately blew the doors off (a common theme over the next 4 days!) by jumping onto the wheel of an electric bike. Once at the top, the views back to where we were staying are breath-taking. Steve stopped at the top of the climb and sent me on my way to the Lighthouse - and the ride did not disappoint! The road dips and dives as it threads it's way to the end point, and there's even a tunnel thrown in to spice it up (great coming back through the tunnel!).

Once back to Steve, we popped up to the Talaia d'Albercutx (the lesser well known but AWESOME lighthouse route) before we heading over to Alcudia to ride around the opposite side of the bay to Puerta en la Montaña - a cheeky little climb that was virtually traffic and bike free. We then noodled up to Ermita de la Victoria (great apple cakes!) before heading back to Port de Pollenca to round off a perfect day on the bikes.
