Day One - Alcudia Warm-up Ride
Main Route: 40km – 25mi
Total Ascent:  300m – 985ft
This is a warm-up ride to ease the legs and body into it.  Some of you may have only recently stepped off a plane, so this ride offers a great way to “tease” out that tiredness.  The ride will take in some small climbs and offer views great views of the coastline.

Day Two - Alcudia loop to Petra
Main Route: 95km – 60mi
Total Ascent: 550m – 1650ft
It’s an easy day’s ride, where we mainly ride through the beautiful countryside on quiet roads amongst olive and almond trees.  It'll be a relaxed pace with not much elevation gain, in preparation for the days ahead.

Day Three - Alcudia loop to Cap de Formentor
Main Route: 95km – 60mi
Total Ascent: 2,100m – 7500ft
Another spectacular day of riding, where Mallorca reveals us its true beauty.
Cap de Formentor is on the northern tip of the island and to get there we’ll have a couple of short but challenging climbs, that we’ll have to repeat on the way back to Alcudia.

Day Four - Alcudia loop to Sa Calobra
Main Route: 115km – 71mi
Total Ascent: 2,300m – 7550ft

… you may think the previous day was a ‘rest day’, compared to this challenging and arguably the most beautiful day of the tour. A good warm up to Pollenca, then a series of ups and downs to the Monastery of S.LLuc. Be ready for a fantastic downhill to Sa Calobra.  Of course we’ll have to climb what we’ve descended!  The way back to Alcudia will be relatively easy. Then it’s time to relax in Alcudia, enjoy its street life, the coffee bars or better still one of the wine bars to toast a great day out!

Day Five - Alcudia to Palma
Main Route: 85km – 52mi
Total Ascent: 400m – 1300ft
Today we transfer to Palma, the capital of Mallorca.  It’s a longish ride with many flat sections – ideal for pace-lining.  Mallorca’s never completely flat however, so we’ll have some short inclines as we cross the island from East to West.

Day Six - Palma loop to Banyalbufar
Main Route: 80km – 50mi
Total Ascent: 1,600m - 5250ft
After a warm up along the coast road, we move inland towards Calvià and Andratx.  We’ll stop for coffee along the way and will then be ready to ride a beautifully panoramic road to the north of the island.  We then head back to Palma.  The ride will include another short climb followed by a long easy downhill to the hotel.

Day Seven - Palma loop to Deià
Main Route: 95km – 60mi
Total Ascent: 1900m – 6250ft
Today we’ll have two steady and gradual climbs to reach Valdemossa.  We continue our ride on the coastal road and then tackle what we like to call the “Piccolo Stelvio” from the village of Soller.  Easy ride back to Palma, but overall a pretty tough day.  All the more to celebrate at our final dinner!

Day Eight - Goodbye
Hasta pronto !!
