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”

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”
Having been riding in Mallorca since 2015 (before that I used to run and swim more, to keep fit) here is a randomly selected set of pictures and video clips (by iOS Photos) showing what a lovely island it is.

A recovery loop for lunch to Ca’n Torrat in Calvia, and then for tea up to Galilea with Philip, and downhill nearly all the way home!
