Mallorca – the scenery, the food, the fun…captured in pictures

Magnificent views along the Serra de Tramuntana – the magnificent blues of the Mediterranean meet the plunging limestone. The views all along this cycling route are gorgeous making it my favourite route in Mallorca.

Welcome to cycling Mecca – cycling Mallorca is stunning, for road bikes and mountain bikes.  The Serra de Tramuntana is the backbone of Mallorca.  This has to be one of the most magnificent rides in the world – certainly one of my favourites.  The route has to be seen to be believed.  Follow M10 from Andratx to Soller for a what can only be described as a glorious day of riding, magnificent views to feast your eyes upon and quaint villages for coffee stops along the way.  You may just find doing it once is not enough!  The solution:  lunch in Soller and do it all again – ride back to Andratx!

Not to be outdone, Sa Calobra boasts itself one of the must do rides of the island……

The Cobra

The quintessential Sa Calobra – a stunning ride of switchbacks where the only way out is up.

Fishing nets at the Port de Andraxt.

With such a bounty of agriculture and fresh fish, it’s no wonder that cafes dotted all around the island are able to offer food that nourishes not only the body, but also the soul……..

Lunch along the coast – is there anything better!

Checking maps and making plans for tomorrow on a balcony at my home away from home in Cala Pi…

Planning for tomorrow.

The routes and quiet roads in Mallorca are endless.  One of my favourite, Cami de s’Aguila gets me where I need to go.  What is your favourite Cami?

Welcome to the Cami – a riding network all over the island with quiet roads for two wheeling pleasure.

Another stretch of spectacular riding, the 18km ride from Port de Pollenca is well worth the trip. Last but not least, making friends at Cap de Formentor, Mallorca’s most northerly point….
