Puig Major climb Mallorca - Pearson 1860 rides
A gem starting in the winding Balearic country lanes, rising to sweet-smelling Pine forest climbs and on to the smooth roads up to the highest point of the island, the famous Puig Major climb, also known locally as 'The Pig' at just under 900m.
This is rewarded with the best and longest descent on the island eventually dropping into the town of Soller at around sea level. A 5km drag out of town before turning back onto quiet mountain passes to climb the Col de Soller at 500m giving tremendous panoramic views on the descent of the south of the island.
From here it’s a great feeling as all the hard work has been achieved in riding half of the Tramuntana Mountains, and if the wind is behind you, the speed on the flat lanes home can be exhilarating. Obviously the best part of the ride is heading to the Pro Cycle Hire cafe for cool isotonic recovery 🍺.
Thanks to Bruce at Pro Cycle Hire for the route.
