Winterbreaking in Mallorca

This February we left our cloudy and cold Luxembourg behind for a few days. Destination : Palma de Mallorca with the Mavic Cycling ambassadors. What a great feeling to see the sunlight and the end of winter approaching. Spring is coming, but don’t let the island’s blue sky and bright light fool you.

While the valley is getting warmer, the peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana will remind you that we are well still in winter. If you can work on your tanning lines at sea level, be ready to face only 2°C and slippery roads once you reach the top. Gloves were not an option. 

Still, the Tramuntana is worth it. The scenery of Sa Calobra, with its snaking curves is pure beauty and your efforts will be rewarded. Mallorca isn’t the easiest place to start the season and your training, but it is definitely one to visit with your bike once in your life.  Mallorca isn’t the easiest place to start the season and your training, but it is definitely one to visit with your bike once in your life.
