MALLORCA F13. DAY 6.
Route #5 Soller Loop 153km
-Orient 11km (average 5%)
-Col de Soller 6km (average 5%)
-Puig Major 14km (average 6%)
-Yup, and a few more rollers
Another rather epic day, this route takes in a number of the longer climbs on the island. With most of the climbing packed into the first 100km the day ends with a fast cruise home.
Highlights of this route are the high valley farms of Orient, the crazy little descent and climb through the villages of Bunyola and Soller and climbing through the olive groves on “little Aple D’Huez”.
You might just ride more switchbacks today than you have done in the rest of your life combined. Just sayin’.
Note: This day will be ridden at pace with a couple of breaks but no lunch stop. It is a long ride and the days are short at this time of the year so it is important that we keep moving. Bring plenty of food in those jersey pockets!
Note: As with every day in the mountains, be prepared for the weather to change quickly. If the weather forecast is anything less than perfect arm-warmers, a rain jacket and some extra food are mandatory for a day of cycling in the hills.
