Who says that there are not hard mountain passes with up to 15% gradient in Mallorca? We have some, but most of the people don´t know them. Thanks to Cycling Friendly here you can find all the information of some of them!!!
Here you will find the hardest 3km around Mallorca. From second to fifth km. there is an average slope of 11% with some sections up to 20%
The tarmac is really broken in the last part and makes it even more difficult the effort on the bike.
This is one of the hardest and unknown hill-climbs in Mallorca. One and a half km. that makes some cyclists to leave the saddle while they try to reach this summit in Pollença, with some sections with an average slope of 14% and some ramps with more than 20%.

It is not possible to reach the summit with a road bike because there is a dirt road section at the end but is still possible to test your legs in this 2 hellish tarmac kilometers. Take advantage of the landings to face this climbing with an average slope of 12%.
