Cycling is integral to the life of the Island, particularly in the North-East where we are based. The roads are excellent. The traffic respects cyclists. The MTB trails are abundant.
Early in the year the Pro teams are here training, as much for the climate as the sheer variety of the terrain and the possibilities it offers. The same route is rarely the same ride, as the landscape changes with each passing day. By late May the ‘serious’ cyclists are off competing in other parts of Europe and a more leisurely pace settles on the biking fraternity. In late summer the enthusiasts return, looking for a few extra weeks of a great climate to put some more good miles into their legs, before the short days of winter close in further north in Europe and the bike goes into the garage or onto the turbo-trainer.
It is for these reasons we love to cycle here.

I spent my childhood in the Dolomites of northern Italy. It is there that I first learned to ride a bike. The Italians are passionate cyclists and fans and there was no escaping the thrills of the sport. It was here I first fell in love with cycling in the mountains. The riding in the Serra de Tramuntana brings back fond memories of happy times, both on and off-road.

Being outdoors is my passion. I live and breathe fresh air every day and can’t imagine my
life any other way. Our garden in Mallorca is one of my passions.
Mallorca is a peaceful and inspiring place to be. I have climbed mountains, swam in the crystal waters along the rugged north coast and sat on benches in the sunshine, just watching the world go by, this is why I love Mallorca.
