Only a few hours by plane

Just 2 hours from Amsterdam, you' ll find the island of Mallorca. A true cycling paradise with a very pleasant climate. From early spring until the late fall, Mallorca is a perfect destination for training. Flat roads, climbs: Mallorca has it al. And even if you're not riding, there are plenty of things to do. A great destination, whether it's with your family of with your cycling mates.

Weather

Unique weather system

Located in the deep south of Europe, Mallorca's weather system is one of the best in the continent. Even in early March or at end of November, the maximum temperatures can be close to 20 degrees.  Temperates may rise above 30 in the summer, but because of its location in the Mediterranean Sea, it never gets too hot. The summer months are very dry, and even in spring the amount of rain moderate. When you're looking for good weather, Mallorca is hard to beat!

he temperature of the ocean? In May it's already a nice 22C, gradually increasing to a nice 28C in the summer. 

Where to go

Mallorca is quite a large island so picking the right base is crucial. The best outpost would depend on what you're looking for. The mountains are located at the west of the island. The greater Palma de Mallorca region or Soller would bring you close to the action. Alternatively, you could stay around the Alcudia / Pollenca area in the north. From here the famous cols are a bit further away but you're very close to the famous lighthouse, the Cap de Formentor. Another advantage of this area is that you can do flat rides too. The rest of the island has lovely towns and resorts too, great for flat rides and home of some of the most beautiful beaches. You would need a rental car to do some climbing, however.
