5 unknown climbs of Majorca

Puig Major, Sa Calobra or Formentor, known names to every cyclist who has experienced Majorca.

But who doesn’t love these attractive, little-traveled climbs? Here 5 climbs that you won’t find in any bike guide.

1 – Lassarell

Hidden in the depths of Pollença, away from traffic, this Majorcan “hell of the north” presents itself as a challenge for cyclists. Its last slopes, with sections of 9%, 14% and 11% and several slopes above 20%, cross a beautiful wooded area that you will surely be eager to visit.

2 – Es Verger

Its other side, Sobremunt, is better known, although it is accessible to very few cyclists by road bike because of its hardness. But Es Verger is not left out in terms of difficulty, with sections of 11% and 14%, although with some rest sections.

The views of Esporles are quite a sight and traffic is also very low.

3 – Son Font

Even steeper slopes, this time in Calvià. The urbanization of Son Font, up to the Camí des Pou, shows its characteristics at a glance, its height measurement: very steep slopes followed by rest areas to take a break, to cope with even steeper climbs.

As in the other cases, almost no traffic.

4 – Coll de Sant Llorenç

As in the case of Es Verger with Sobremunt, this climb pays the price due to its location next to one of the best in the world, Sa Calobra.

If we turn off towards Cala Tuent, we can enjoy stunning breathtaking views, and a climb with a fairly constant slope but with a demanding average of 6.60%.

 5 – Coll de Palmanova

The downside of this little climb from Palmanova to Calvià is the traffic, which makes our routes vary a bit and offers a quick option to the Serra de Tramuntana from this coastal town.
