BIKING WEEK SPAIN
Carlyx is offering a one-week cycling trip where we travel from town to town on carefully selected routes. We have, in collaboration with local cyclists, selected the most appropriate routes between each destination.
Luggage will be transported each day to your hotel and an escort car, with spare bikes and parts, will be available on all routes. Lunch will be served after each stage, and water and fruit are available at certain points along the way. Accommodation and food is of a high standard (four-star).
Daily stages are preceded by a guide group, but you can also set your own pace, according to your own desire and level. If you want to design your own route, it is possible to rent pre-programmed GPS or get maps distributed. Our service phone is always staffed, in case you need help during the trip.
Before each stage, all participants receive a detailed description of what to expect in terms of the weather and terrain, as well as tips and advice on what is available along the journey.
Day 1: Airport to the hotel
You will be picked up at the airport of Palma and driven to the hotel in Arenal, about 10 minutes from the airport. If you have decided to rent a bike, you get this delivered and tailored to your specifications. If you choose to bring your own bike you have the option of getting this checked with our specialists. During dinner at the hotel there will be the opportunity to speak with our bike guides and examine the cycle routes in more detail.
Day 2: Arenal to Porto Cristo
Breakfast will be served at the hotel at 08.00. The stage will start from the Carlyx Mallorca office in Arenal at 10:00. There will be a review of the day’s stage, before we head out on the road.
We will be cycling for 100km over beautiful landscape that takes us to the pretty harbour town of Porto Cristo.
Not far from Porto Cristo is the famous Caves of Drach.
There will be transport back to the hotel for those who want to spend the afternoon and evening discovering the attractions before dinner.
Day 3: Porto Cristo to Alcudia
Breakfast will be served at the hotel at 08.00. We will leave the hotel at 10:00. The day’s stage is nearly 70 km long and goes through flat terrain, much like the day before. We ride in from the coast, via Manacor, to the beautiful little village of Petra.
Manacor is the home village to the tennis player Rafael Nadal and also known for the production of Mallorca pearls
From here on, the road gets a little more curved as it meanders out to the bay of Alcudia. You will cycle past 14 kilometers of shallow beaches and tourist resorts such as Alcudia, Playa del Muro and Can Picafort. Alcudia Bay is the day’s finishing point.
Day 4: Alcudia to Puerto de Soller
Breakfast will be served at the hotel at 08.00. We will cycle from the hotel at 10:00 from Alcudia along the coast towards Puerto de Pollensa before we change direction and head off into the mountains. After about 10 km we head towards Puerto de Soller. Here, the terrain changes completely.
You will travel up and down hills as the stage is dominated by forests and rocky mountains. A curved stretch is encountered about 70 km from Alcudia. As you cycle into Puerto de Soller you will see the idyllic harbour village set around a beautiful bay. Here you will also see the charming narrow gauge railway track to Palma.
Day 5: Puerto de Soller to Andratx
Departure from the hotel will be at 10.00. We will continue through the same beautiful countryside as the previous day, cycling through Mallorca’s most idyllic surroundings. After coming up from Puerto de Soller, we will ride on a couple of hundred meters, where we will be overlooking the sea. At times, we will see several hundred meters of high rock walls at the side of the road.
On this stretch of the road you will encounter nature at its most beautiful and come across many new challenges and experiences. The scenery ends in the modern port Andratx, on the south of the island. Here we recommend a tour on foot, either before or after dinner in the hotel.
Day 6: Andratx to Arenal
Breakfast will be at 9:00. We will depart from the hotel at 11:00. We will leave Andratx and travel through some of Mallorca’s most exclusive residential areas. As we travel along the coast we will see some stunning views and pass some of the islands finest beaches.
We will cycle through Santa Ponsa, Magaluf and Palma Nova and in along the bike paths that stretch out along Palma yacht harbour, past the Cathedral La Seu, all the way along the Palma Beach.
Approximately 65 km later we will arrive at Arenal. Dinner will be at Buscando el Norte, Palma
Day 7: Arenal
The last day will be very special. We will have the opportunity to go to the Velodrome.
At the velodrome you will have the opportunity to learn from the best, and even ride with the best, a real velodrome cycle.
If you do not wish to participate in this activity, you can take a tour of Palma, and we can organize a joint tour if there are more than 3 people who are interested. Applying for that occurs during the dinner Buscando el Norte.
