Whatever time of year you go Mallorca will have plenty of cyclists. Its normally possible to ride one some part of the island 365 days a year.
The professional teams visit in December and January for their start of season training camps. Amateur training camps start in February and run until November, with the peak season being April for spring training. In late March, April and early May you are likely to see many more cyclists than motorists. The climbs are teaming with riders and cyclist friendly facilities are in full swing. Summer brings more casual cyclists and the influx of sun seeking holiday makers. Autumn is a great time to visit as the temperature cools and the package holiday tourism slows down.
