Coll de la Creueta

Coll de la Creueta

A 3km blast out of Port de Pollença, with stunning views across the Bay of Pollença and the Serra Tramuntana. The Coll de la Creueta is one of the most popular on the island due to its proximity to many of the main cyclists hotels in the Pollença area. Often used as a first day...
Ermita de Betlem

Ermita de Betlem

A well hidden climb on the very east of the island, Ermita de Betlem is the access road to the eponymous monastery high above Colonia St Pere and Betlem. The road climbs gently out of the pretty town of Arta (a great lunch stop) for around 2km before starting to rear up at the final...
Coll de sa Gramola

Coll de sa Gramola

The Coll de sa Gramola climbs out of the western town of Andratx and marks the start of the dramatic costal road to Estellencs and Banyalbulfar. The road has a distinct feel from the major climbs of the Eastern Serra, rather than lots of switchbacks the road climbs along the contour lines. More of a...
Coll de sa creu

Coll de sa creu

A solid test thats convenient for Palma based riders and a great way to escape the city into the Western hills. Starting from the motorway junction the road climbs to a height of 376m. From about half way up the panorama of Palma bay becomes increasingly visible. Important to note however that the bottom half of the climb goes through an active military base, therefore...
Coll d'Orient

Coll d’Orient

The second climb that accesses the Orient valley (the other being the Coll d’Honor). This side is a much easier climb, there are no steep hairpins and the road has been recently resurfaced. It highly recommended that you climb via the rougher Coll d’Honor and descend the Coll d’Orient. Just over the summit is the beautiful and...
es Grau

es Grau

A beautiful and quiet climb starting in the village of Puigpunyent and rising to 468m. Never too steep and off the tourist traffic trail.
Coll de Sóller

Coll de Sóller

One of the classic climbs of Mallorca, crossing the Tramuntana, connecting the capital Palma with the port of Sóller. In 1997 the Sóller Tunnel was opened and almost all motorised traffic takes this route through the mountain. This leaves the old road a cyclists paradise. A decent climb from both sides but much harder southbound. Northern Approach...
Puig de Randa (Cura)

Puig de Randa (Cura)

A 518m high mountain near Llucmajor that is separate from the main Tramuntana range. At the top sits a monastery, car park and cafe. In early spring and late autumn the climb is a cyclist mecca. The main climb is challenging but never too steep. Spectacular views of the whole island can be had from the...
