Another “must do” ride on the island, Cap Formentor is the classic way to end a trip to Mallorca. Ocean views, the most outrageous coffee stop on the island, and a couple of climbs top it all off.
We start this day with a shuttle to the start of our route at the Playa Formentor. This shuttle will shave off a few km’s and one significant climb. From here the route makes its way up through open forests and out the peninsula eventually winding out a narrowing ridge until the road simply ends at a stunning lighthouse. The best way to take in the views is with a delicious coffee in hand.
For the return journey we retrace our route but stay on our bikes all the way. A stop for lunch on the beach in Port de Pollenca is not to be missed. With full bellies we will make our way home along the famous Beach Road.
