Here are some bike rides I have enjoyed in the Balearics during the last seven years. I’m looking forward to my first post-pandemic visit in October for the 6Points Ibiza and Formentera, which I last rode in the autumn of 2019, with some additional Mallorca riding before and after. Some of the following rides are on the agenda!
This video is about the Sobremunt climb, especially near the top of the climb which is quite hard to find amongst the various agricultural estates up there – such as the Sobremunt estate itself. My original post on “Sobremunt, the hardest climb in Mallorca” also has a shorter slideshow collage, and a little more aboutContinue reading “A new look at Sobremunt, the hardest climb in Mallorca”

My rider view of Day 2 (the easiest, shortest day!) of the 6Points Mallorca May 2019, organised by Bryan Visser, with my group (one of four) led by Philip Crawford.

The whole day was about 165kms, with 3500m of climbing. We rode from Santa Ponça to Sant Elm to the most westerly point of Mallorca, andContinue reading “6Points Mallorca 2019 Day 1”
The GoPro video version This video is about the 2018 Mallorca 312 I rode with Leslie. We did the 225kms version, and, as for the full 312 kms, most of the interesting riding is along the Ma10 road along the north of the island, through the Tramuntana mountains, and then through the western Tramuntanas, whereContinue reading “The 2018 Mallorca 312”
Hello Sunday Zwift 6Pointers! Our Zwift training ride is on as usual at 11.40am UTC on Sunday (see link). It’s not such a tough one, 2 laps of the Zwift Watopia Waistband, flatter than all official routes except Tempus Fugit and Tick Tock. The only noticeable uphills are the rise outside of Saddle Springs, the ramp out ofContinue reading “Sunday 8th Dec 6Points Mallorca Watopia Waistband!”
6Points Mallorca meets Yorkshire, on the Royal Pump Room 8 course. We had 162 booked to ride, with 146 riders and 64 finishers which says something about the difficulty of the course!
We look forward to seeing you and your avatar on the Yorkshire Royal Pump Room 8 course for a hilly 27kms, a tough rolling course with sprints and KOMs, with very little flat riding.
