There’s a reason so many cyclists visit Mallorca each year. With a wealth of pristine roads, beautiful scenery and favourable weather, it’s a cycling paradise. This time, we’re heading to the north of the island, closer to some of its major attractions. From our Summit hotel the iconic switchbacks of Sa Calobra and the route to the lighthouse at Cap Formentor are just a short ride away. Add in some time to relax, recover and catch up with clubmates, and we’re all set for a superb long weekend.
