Much has been written about Mallorca. We particularly like the article by RCUK , but make sure to check out our pages for a general overview. The below is meant to show you the side of Mallorca you can't easily google and will hopefully give you a real insite into the Island, and turn your trip from a good trip to a great trip! 

 

The best cafe's on Mallorca

 

There is nothing worse than heading into the hills unsure if you've taken enough food or water. Mallorca has plenty of cafe's and below our are picks!

1. Orange Shack - Located on the turn off to the Sa Calobra, just pass the viaduct, and famous for it's fresh orange juice. It has been the savoir of many a rider who has struggled up the Sa Calobra!

2. La Calobra - Located at the base of the Sa Calobra, this cafe with a shop underneath is a great place to graba an ice cream and cold drink before attempting the ride back up.

3. The Petrol Station - Called as much as there is the only petrol station in the mountains located next door, this cafe does amazing cake, which can be much neded after climbing the Col de sa Batalla

4. Soller Town Square - If riding the Col de Soller or Puig Major and you feel your energy levels waining, Soller town has a very pleasent town sqaure with multiple cafes for all budgets. 

5. Cafe Sa Placa - Bunyola - Located at the turn off to the Col de Orient, a coffee stop is a great idea before the steap climb out of town.

The Bradley Wiggins Restaurant

Restaurant Tolos in Port de Pollensa is knowns as the Cyclists restaurant, or Bradleys's restaurant. To clear up the rumour mill, Sir Bradley doesn't own it. He and many other pro's however have, and still do, frequent it. It's walls are plastered with bikes, jerseys and historical bicycle memorabilia.

They have a great seaside location, bike parking and serve great pizza's and massive bowls of pasta. You can't reallly want any more from a restaurant. 

What bike do I need?

In a nutshell you don't need a bike. Hire bikes are so good in Mallorca, and very reasonably priced, that if you are just going for a few days we recomend you hire one. If you're bringing your own bike then make sure it has a semi- compact or compact chainset and atleast a 28t rear cassette for hills. 25c tyres at about 85-100psi are perfect for the smooth Mallorcan roads.

What kit do I need?

Most of the time you can ride in Mallorca in shorts and jersey, however pack arm and leg warmers for the chillier days, and always take a wind proof or water proof into the hills with you.
