Even if you think that when you look at the calm and impressive coves of Menorca, that it will be a bike ride along the beach, you are wrong! The Cami de Cavalls MTB-trail is a route suitable only for cyclists with extensive MTB experience, due to the slope of the terrain and its technical climbs and descents.

With increasingly improved infrastructure, also for those who want to ride a road bike, Menorca offers you the opportunity to climb the top of El Toro (the highest mountain on the island), as well as short climbs but very demanding such as s´Enclusa.
