The trip, with the routes made by you, exceeded our expectations, the places and roads are spectacular, mixing the coast and the cities, with roads and places with a lot of tradition.
The most spectacular was the Sa Calobra stage through the Serra de Tramuntana, it was spectacular, because we had a huge storm with rain and wind in the sector of Puig Mayor, which we will not forget.
Very remarkable weather, despite the heat, the breeze and the effect of pedaling does not feel or make it unpleasant.
“El viaje, con las rutas definidas por ustedes, superó nuestras expectativas, los lugares y caminos son espectaculares, mezclando zonas y ciudades costeras, con caminos y lugares interiores con mucha tradición. Lo más espectacular fue hacer la ruta de Sa Calobra por la Serra de Tramuntana, fue espectacular, porque nos tocó al regreso y en el sector dePuig Mayor una tormenta con lluvia y viento, que no olvidaremos.
Muy destacable el clima, que pese al calor, por la brisa y el efecto de pedalear no se siente ni lo hace desagradable”
The route is very clear, and that’s the most important credit. Suggest to add more sightseeing tips and restaurants.
The bikes were great! Very easy to paddle and the seats are comfortable.
It was tough to ride in the heat everyday. But in the end of the day, there was always a perfect beach in the end of the day waiting for us to dive in. That was so awesome. Also, Majorcan people are generally very friendly and warm, we received lots of help on the way.
I’d like to thank Bike Spain staffs, Edgar and Sabela, always giving us the help In time. A great memory.
