    Gentle Cycle in Mallorca

    Very enjoyable 6 days cycling. Mostly on quiet, country roads (with usually more bikes than cars!). Infrequent short stretches on busy roads (but not an issue). Fairly flat- with occasional short hills. Easily covered the miles, with plenty of time to relax afterwards! The (hired) bikes were of a good standard- especially the electric bike my wife hired. Hotels all excellent (except on the extra night- see below). Apart from Pollenca, we ate in the hotels every night- all very good. Weather perfect - apart from 1-2 hours rain on one day. Lovely, varied scenery.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    We opted for an extra night in Pollenca. Pollenca is a lovely small town. We cycled from there to Cap Formentor, north of Pollenca. Very easy route finding. Views stunning. Challenging hilly route- but very achievable- hills mainly less than 8%

    What did you think of your group leader?

    n/a

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Opt for an extra night in Pollenca (see above). However, if you do so, take caution in choosing the hotel. We were slightly late in booking the trip (6-8 weeks prior to departure). This perhaps caused issues with the extra night. We had to change hotels (1 night in Hotel Juma and the second in Son Sant Jordi). In the second hotel, we were given a room in an old annexe. It wasn't too clean; wifi didn't work and there was no hot water! The main hotel may have been better! This contrasted markedly with the other accommodation which was all excellent We also enjoyed a 2 day stay in Palma

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I requested GPX files from Exodus. This made route finding very easy.

    Tougher than expected

    This trip certainly deserved its 2 rating. Its description of "easy to moderate" underated the cycling as we found it was 'at least' moderate on all days but the last. The hotels were generally of good standard. But two of them were "out in the country" so there was no alternative but to eat in the hotel itself. The cyles themselves were good quality with handlebar and rear panniers. An electric bike for one member proved a blessing, although it did break down once in the trip [may have been our fault]. Very detailed route maps and instructions were daunting at first, but if you followed them carefully they proved to be very accurate.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Firstly, getting to the Hotel Randa after a long and tiring climb. Secondly, cycling along the Pollenca Bay seafront.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Not applicable

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Regard this as a 'moderate ' ride rather than an 'easy' one.

    Mallorca self guided coast to coast cycling

    This trip is an excellent way to see an extremely touristy island in a different way. The cycle routes are mainly on small countryside roads with lovely rural view's.I was surprised that Mallorca is such a fantastic place for cycling.The respect motorists give you on the roads made it feel extremely safe and such a pleasant change from cycling at home. The maps were much easier for us to follow than the written guide as you have to stop to many times to check your still on route.A digital route would be an improvement but it's actually quite fun getting a bit lost and brushing up on our map reading skills.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Cycling around the central areas of Mallorca seeing quite little towns and villages with very few other tourists.

    Mallorca Mediterranean coast-to-coast sun cyclying

    The trip ticked all the boxes as I imagined them, starting with beaches with turquoise transparent waters on the first and last days, from there it was medieval market villages, quiet cycling tracks through vineyards, oaks and almond trees and of course the mountains and their excellent views. Quiet hotels with character, lovely Mediterranean food and above all the charming ways of the locals. I would love to do it again, changing the route to discover even more places.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    A couple of times: while leisurely riding along the coast at Sa Rapita, seeing a beach just there, stopping having a relaxed swim and then carry on. In the mountains at Randa, going up to the Santuari de Cura, where it is possible to see almost all the island around, breathtaking.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    This was a self guided tour. The routes were pretty well described with detailed notes, end-to-end. It helped me at times to have my mobile with Google maps of the area, mostly when I decided to explore a bit on my own.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    For the first two days and last one reaching Pollensa, take the swimming gear with you. Though it is a very leisurely pace, a bit of fitness is required. Stop and enjoy every little village as you go through them, also try as many local dishes, liqueurs and wines as possible, it is worth it.

    Majorca bike ride (relaxed)

    Very good accommodation, and also very good rides. We were given (upon asking) the electronic routes which were pretty much essential and made it much easier to navigate. Loved the great cycle-friendly lanes. Great accommodation too, with lovely food.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Probably the first accommodation: this was the nicest place of the three where we stayed, but it was also a surprise as to see how things were going to be.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    It was self-guided so there was no group leader. On the other hand, EXODUS was available on-line when we had a query.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It is a self-guided ride: the distances are small for experienced cyclists (about 40 km per day). on the other hand, this gave ample time for stops for photography and lunches. The bikes were hybrids and rather heavy, but about right for the type of ride this was.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Nothing to add: very enjoyable trip. We stayed a couple of days extra in Palma which was great too.
