Club MAC Alcudia Cycling

Are you an avid cycler? The type of person who carries a foldaway bike with them at all times? If so, there are three fantastic cycle routes you need to try when you stay at Club MAC Alcudia.

Balearic paradise

Club MAC Alcudia is an outstanding family resort in the historic port town of Alcudia, located on the sun-drizzled Balearic paradise that is Majorca.

Here at Club MAC, we know we’re incredibly blessed. The Balearic haven we live and work on every day is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Majorca is the land of azure waves, golden sands, picturesque fields, majestic mountains and so much more.

We insist that you take the time to explore the natural beauty that typifies this stunning island when you stay at Club MAC. Luckily for you there are a number of popular cycling routes in Majorca that you can use to see the island in all its glory. There are three in particular you have to try during your time at Club MAC.

Lluc Monastery route

If you’re new to the art of cycling you might want to start with a nice ride along the Lluc Monastery route. This 30 mile ride is the perfect path to take for your first trip up into Majorca’s stunning mountains.

You start with a nice slow climb up the famous Tramutana mountain range via the gorgeous Coll de sa Batalla route. Then you arrive at the ancient Luc Monastery, where you have the chance to look around and experience traditional Spanish culture before taking a nice descent down the coll-de-femenia into the charming town of Pollenca.

Cap de Formentor lighthouse route

Are you more of a beach person? If you are then you might want to think about trying the Cap de Formentor lighthouse route instead.

A 25 mile ride, the path starts and ends in the same town as the Lluc Monastery route; the lovely settlement known as Pollenca. It’s a bit of a climb as it takes you up into the hilly terrain of a peninsula before you arrive at the pinnacle of your ride; the world famous Cap de Formentor lighthouse, which is well worth a few hours of your time. Along the way this route allows you to pass by some of the most epic stretches of sand that Majorca has to offer.

Around the orange groves route

However, if you’re looking for something a little quieter and more peaceful there’s only one route you should take. This 25 mile loop route takes you around the stunning orange groves of Majorca.

You start and finish in the hard-not-to-love traditional town of Llucmajor. Then the path will take you down some of the quietest little country roads in Majorca, whilst giving you the opportunity to ride through the citrus groves and small fincas the island has become famous for.
