TOP 10 CLIMBS IN MALLORCA (PART II)

WED · 22nd OCT. 2014

Second part of our guide to the climbs on the island of Mallorca. Remember you can read the first part of our guide here.

6- Coll de sa Batalla: Probably the island’s most popular climb. Almost comparable to travelling through time, featuring bucolic landscapes from days of yore. It bids an introductory welcome to the Serra de Tramuntana. 8.3 kilometres at 5%, with a brief respite at the so-called ‘salt de la bella dona’.

7- Sant Salvador: The eastern side of Mallorca also boasts its colossus, Sant Salvador. A 5-kilometre climb with a gradient of 7%. “Constant” is the word that best sums up this ascent. One tip: visit the Sanctuary. Here you’ll find the yellow jerseys of the six-times World Track Champion, the local boy from Felanitx, Guilem Timoner, on display.

8- Cura: Another climb far away from the Serra de Tramuntana. Setting off from Randa, 5 kilometres at an average gradient of 6% embellished by the finest views to be had in the Pla de Mallorca region. Highly recommended, and one of the island’s most popular ascents among cyclists.

9- Coll d’Honor: The Coll d’Honor is hidden away between Bunyola and Alaró. A 6-kilometre climb at 6% with sections of up to 12%. The ascent features dense forest on either side, arriving in Orient to regain strength.

10- Valldemossa: The 4-kilometre climb of Valldemossa, with a gradient of 5%, is the last of our recommendations for anyone devoted to cycling and the island of Mallorca. Renowned for its beauty, this is one of the must-see villages.

Now it’s over to you. What is your favourite climb in Mallorca?

    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....

    Buenas noches Carlos,\nNo la incluimos porque no es un Top10 por nivel de dificultad, y sin duda Sobremunt (tienes la altimetría en la web y nos encanta!) es muy atractivo por su dureza, pero no es asequible para la gran mayoría del público cicloturista o ciclista local precisamente por ese motivo.\nEcha un vistazo al listado de altimetrías. Lo tienes incluso grabado en vídeo!

    Hi!\nI have done only 6 of 10 of these climbs. Will visit the cycling paradise of Mallorca again some day. Sa Calobra is beautiful! I liked Coll de Sa Creu. Not long of a climb (about 3k), but very nice to do with a nice view of Palma on top if you look throught the trees. The new paved road makes it perfect for smooth rolling!\nHasta luego!\nYiannos
