Port De Pollenca Cycling Guide

When we arrived in Port De Pollenca we were surprised how suited out for cyclists it was, on most occasions when we arrive at one of our adventure destinations we'll be searching about trying to find where to get the necessary gear and what our potential best routes are. However when you first go on the main beach promenade you know having a cycling holiday here is easy as can be, the one big giveaway is the well designed and extremely busy cycle lane set aside from the pedestrianised area with bike zebra crossings! These are the first time I've ever seen them and as a strict speed limit isn't enforced in this area they are well needed with the regular flow of sportive and tourist road cyclist either heading out to attack their route for the day or returning for a well deserved cold refreshment and sit down.

Port De Pollensa

The layout of the town makes it very easy to navigate around and find everything you need, the most tourist driven restaurants and bars are on the beach front whilst if you start to navigate the side streets you'll find some lovely family ran establishments and also a few locations that the locals eat and drink in. The main road is at the back of the town keeping the town away from the beach keeping the town very peaceful. The sandy beach along the main bay in is a calm environment with loungers available perfect for a relaxing day reading a book or doing some sun worshipping. Further along the bay towards Alcudia the waters become choppier and you'll find some windsurfers showing off their stuff. Overall you should be able to find everything you need in Port De Pollensa to have a great cycling adventure or holiday.

Restaurants & Bars

After a long day cycling around Mallorca there's nothing like a freshly prepared meal to restore those energy supplies and possibly a well deserved beer or glass of wine.
