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. I added new music to it, and some more commentary and stills. Here is some mapping for the ride: I haveContinue reading “A new look at Sobremunt, the hardest climb in Mallorca”

As some will know, When descending Sa Calobra, I always stop at the turn to the left a fewContinue reading “Cala Tuent and Es Vergeret”
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”
I have put together more of my GoPro video of Sobremunt, exploring the summit area in more detail, which can be quite hard to find amongst the various private estates up there, one of which IS Sobremunt. This was part of the wider circuit I did, reported previously.
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 good ride today on 2 laps of Zwift’s Richmond UCI course.
