Day 1:    Arrival in Ruberts (Sencelles)

Arrival at your agroturism accommodation in Ruberts, where you will stay for 4 nights. Your will be staying at a classic Mallorquin manor house built in the 15th century and surrounded by vineyards and apricot, citrus and almond orchards. It has been rebuilt into a charming and comfortable hotel, with swimming pool, two terraces and an excellent restaurant.

Day 2:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Sineu and Petra
41 km

You start off by cycling through a beautiful countryside, among olive orchards and vineyards, to reach the historical town of Sineu, with its impressive Gothic church, narrow lanes and lively outdoor terraces. You then continue to Petra, birthplace of Fray Juniperus Serra (the European ‘founder’ of California), where the monastery and iconographic museum are worth a visit. The hilltop Hermitage of Bonnay is a prime spot to stop for lunch. The last section of the route follows quiet country roads and dirt tracks back to your hotel.

Challenge: 41-48 km, 235 /420 m ascent/descent. 

Day 3:    Circular ride from Ruberts via Alaró and Santa María
26 km

After crossing the Palma-Inca highway, you traverse almond and olive orchards on the slopes of the Tramuntana mountain range to reach the village of Alaró, with its lovely castle. To avoid 3km of heavy traffic on the road, you follow ancient footpaths linking Binissalem and Alaró (with just a short 500m section which is not suitable for cycling). On your return, you ‘sail down’ a beautiful inland road which winds through an authentic rural landscape, past impressive estates and historic villages.

Challenge: 26-51 km, 75/250 m ascent/descent.

Day 4:    Circular ride from Ruberts vis Llucmajor and Montuiri
45 km

There will be plenty of classic Mallorquin windmills to admire as you turn South today. You’ll have the choice of visiting 3 hermitages on the ascent up Puig de Randa (450m extra to ascend), but the scenery is just as nice if you choose to cycle directly to Llucmajor then around the Puig. Later, a dirt road takes you to Montuiri and back to the hotel.

Challenge: 45-56 km, 325/570 m ascent/descent.

Day 5:    Ride from Ruberts to Pollença
45 km

Today you say goodbye to your kind hosts at Son Jordá, then ride north toward Costitx and Llubí, enjoying a rather relaxed tour. Once you have reached Campanet, you peddle through a quiet valley, among carob and almonds orchards to reach Pollença. Though you have to cycle for 2km on a rather busy main road, your reward is arrival at another comfortable and charming hotel.

Challenge: 45 km, 235 m ascent, 335 m descent.

Day 6:    Circular ride from Pollença via S´Albufera
42 km

This cycling route takes you to the tourist mecca of Sa Pobla – with an optional side excursion via Muro and Santa Margalida – riding through typical Mallorcan landscapes among windmills and fields of artichokes. You then reach a tiny but beautiful corner of the world, the marshlands at S’Albufera, a nature reserve where you can see many interesting birds.

Challenge: 42 - 68 km, 175/275 ascent/descent.  

Day 7:    Circular ride from Pollença via Alcudia or Lluc
16 km

Today you choose between an easy ride to beautiful beaches on the north coast or a strenuous ascent to Lluc Monastery (especially demanding on hot days or at weekends, when there’s lots of traffic).

Challenge: 15,5 - 46 km, 50/325 m ascent/descent. 

Day 8:    End of arrangement
