Puig Major

Puig Major

Ride Puig Major and Reach the second Highest Point on Mallorca

Mallorca has several fantastic cycling routes and like Cap Formentor and Sa Calobra, Puig Major is one of them. In fact Puig Major, which is part of the Tramuntana mountain range is the second most popular climb on the island, thanks mostly to being the highest reachable point. When you reach the top of this 14 kilometre trek you will be 854 metres above sea level.

The most popular climb on the island is Sa Calobra made famous by Sir Bradley Wiggins who used the hairpins to train before the 2012 Olympic Games.

Puig Major is the highest reachable point in Mallorca

Puig Major from Soller

When you ride Puig Major you will ride a steady 6% gradient. The real challenge is the 14kms of route to reach it. Starting from Soller which is at sea level, you ride the Ma-10 until you reach the Monnaber Tunnel, the summit of Puig Major. Like most roads in Mallorca, the road is perfect for cycling, as it is long, winding, and smooth. The steady gradient you will feel in your legs but the gradients never reach the dizzy inclinations of 10%+ that you would find on say Mont Ventoux.

Fornalutx – “The prettiest village in Spain”

If you’re not trying to achieve a personal best then you may want to stop and refill your water bottles and have a coffee in the village of Fornalutx. It states that it is the “prettiest village in Spain” and it could well be. It is situated at the top of the Soller valley and has wonderful mountain views. It has a number of cafes and restaurants to refuel and refill, and you will notice the olive and orange trees which stretch all the way to your destination, Puig Major.

Fornalutx – “The prettiest village in Spain”

To reach Fornalutx you take a small detour from the Ma-10 about 4 kms into the climb.

Puig Major from Carretera de Fornalutx

An alternative from the popular Soller route is to begin the climb at Carretera de Fornalutx taking the Ma-2121 road which will take you through Fornalutx. This is the only difference in the route, however, as from Fornalutx you take the MA-10, riding the last 10 kms on the same road as the Soller route.

The views from Puig Major have to be experienced. The view of the sea and the mountains and valleys below give you a perspective few in the world will ever get to appreciate. You will also have that beautiful feeling of achievement from riding to the highest point on Mallorca. Make sure you have your phone or camera with you to take pictures.

Sa Calobra

Sa Calobra

Sa Calobra has become extremely famous in cycling circles and it is on many a cyclist’s must ride list. The ride involves climbing from Port de Soller to the top, weaving your way up the many hairpins you will encounter. Sir Bradley Wiggins famously used this road to prepare for the 2012 Olympics and holds the unofficial record for the climb. As Team SKY train on Mallorca, every rider in the team has ridden this road.

It is very popular among our guests. So why should you ride it?

sa colobra mallorca must rideThe road was built in 1932, and designed by the Italian engineer Antonio Paretti

Sa Calobra is Unique

To start the Sa Calobra climb you have to cycle down it first. Either that or catch a ferry to Port de Soller. As you can imagine most riders choose to cycle down it. In the village of Port de Soller there are plenty of cafes so after riding down the hairpins you can refuel for your journey back up to the top.

The Views

You simply cannot help but be impressed at the views offered by this road. It winds upwards at an average gradient of 6.2% for 13kms, and around every switchback is a breathtaking view of Mallorca and the sea. Imagine this and the smell of the sea and crisp clear air in your lungs. Now you understand why riding this road is a cyclists dream.

It has Been Ridden by the Greats

Riding the same roads as cycling legends is when you truly appreciate how good professional cyclists are. When you reach the top of Sa Calobra you have entered an unofficial club of cyclists that have made the climb. As the route features sheer drops you also need a cool head to descend and climb Sa Calobra. This all adds to the sheer awesomeness of being able to say you’ve ridden this road.

It is a Must Ride

Mallorca is a cycling paradise and it is climbs such as Sa Calobra that have given the island its legendary status among cyclists. Bradley Wiggins described Mallorca as a scalextric set for cyclists. The roads are smooth and adventurous and they inspire you to ride more miles than you would at home. Arguably, the uniqueness of Sa Calobra embodies everything that is perfect about Mallorca cycling.
