Spain may be best-known for its sunshine and beaches, but it is also one of the best cycling destinations in Europe for road cyclists, and if you are looking for varied routes and breathtaking scenery, you’ll find it all right here in España! While temperatures rise above 40° degrees during summer, the Sierra Nevada offers excellent cycling in spring and autumn, and there’s perhaps nowhere better for a winter cycling holiday than Mallorca. There are some fabulous one-day cycling sportives in Spain too, with the 312 Mallorca being a great warm-up ride for the start of the cycling season.
While it is referred to as the Gran Fondo Mallorca, the 312 Mallorca is so much more! It’s one of Europe’s toughest road bike sportives, covering some 312km and 5,050m of climbing in just one day. Brilliantly organised, the race takes place at the end of April each year, and Bicycle Beyond offer a fabulous 5-night training camp for those who would like to take part in the race, including all accommodations, transfers, many meals, local guides and full vehicle support. If 312km sounds out of your comfort zone, you’ll be pleased to know that there are 225km and 167km options to choose from…phew!
