2014 MALLORCA TRAINING TRIP ROUTE 8
Route #8 Santuari de Cura 115km
Cura 10km (3.5%) …it is the last 5km that count!
Santuari de Cura is about 60km south-east of our temporary home in Alcudia. This ride is another beautiful mix of all that Mallorca has to offer. Quiet, pastoral roads great views and a little bit of climbing are all on offer today. The riding through the middle of the island is typified but slightly rolling stone-walled roads and sweeping views. Almond orchards, olive groves and hundreds of sheep are all kept behind ancient walls as we make our way to Montuiri and the monastery above. On a clear day views from the summit will include the mountains to the north, Palma to the west and about 270 degrees of coastline. Although we can see Alcudia from here it is farther than it looks! We keep our fingers crossed that the friendly Mallorcan winds will help us home.
