An island off the southern cost off Spain, Majorca is one of the hottest destinations for cycling!
The climate is ideal … average temperatures for May range from 55 to 75 degrees. The terrain is diverse … from sandy beaches & garden lanes to rolling hills & a massive limestone mountain range.
We started this trip because of the excellent riding conditions and spectacular scenery. We go back every year because of the cherished friendships we've formed along the way!
