TOP 10 CLIMBS IN MALLORCA (PART I)

TUE · 14th OCT. 2014

One of the most frequent questions for any cyclist visiting the island touches upon Mallorca’s mountain passes. Which is the most beautiful? The hardest? The most spectacular? At Ciclismo en Mallorca our aim is to help you with our own guide to the TOP 10 climbs on the island.

1- Sa Calobra: The island’s quintessential climb. 10 kilometres in length, it has an average gradient of 7%, but a number of sections of short hairpin bends that in some cases exceed 20%. The landscape? Quite simply unbeatable. An obligatory visit for any lover of cycling.

2- Puig Major (Sóller): The island’s longest pass, covering over 14 kilometres. An indispensable climb for any cyclist, with a very consistent average gradient of 6%. Pedalling alongside the Gorg Blau and Cúber reservoirs is a unique experience.

3- Coll de Femenia: Setting out from Pollença, the ascent of Coll de Femenia captures like few others the beauty of the Serra de Tramuntana. 8 kilometres at an average gradient of 6%, with a gentler final section.

4- Sóller (Palma-Soller): For decades this was the only road connecting the towns of Sóller and Palma. Now it has been colonised by cyclists wanting to sample the 6 kilometres of ascent with a gradient of 5%. Possibly the island’s best-known hairpin bends.

5- Formentor: A byword for landscapes that remain permanently etched in the mind’s eye. Barely 4 kilometres are needed before you are rewarded with a glimpse of the idyllic lookout point with a short extra climb to reach the sublime Formentor lighthouse. And for the most adventurous, there’s the chance to add a few more kilometres by climbing up to Sa TalaiaAlbercutx, where the views will leave you open-mouthed in amazement.

    Hola! Buen artículo...... aunque echo de menos que no publiquéis la SUBIDA MÁS EMPINADA/DURA de Mallorca (y muy bien asfaltada) al VERGER de Esporles (por la vertiente desde carretera Establiments a Puigpunyent):\n\nLONGITUD: 3.5 kms aprox.\nPENDIENTE MEDIA: >10%\nPENDIENTE MÁXIMA: >21%!!!!! Sí, no es un error.....\n\nDESARROLLO recomendado: Mínimo un plato de 39 d. X 26 d. PIÑON...Se recomienda utilizar TRIPLE PLATO. \n\n**El "descanso" más suave es una rampa del 7-8% de 200 metros....
