Climb the nicest Mallorcan Mountains and enjoy the weather and nature. Spring in Mallorca is when Mallorca is at its best. There tends to be a cool breeze, the sun is bright but not too hot so an excellent time of year for the Mallorca 312! Mallorca 312 is a cycling festival with a choice for keen amateur cyclists of 3 distances: 312km, 225km and 167km. Your registration allows you to participate in all routes. Depending how you get on with your training, you have time to decide until the day of the race which one you will do.
The registration, start and finish are in Playa de Muro located at just 1 mile from our hotels. Our travel package to the 2024 Mallorca 312 includes a 3, 4 or 5-night stay with breakfasts and evening meals included. Choose between the excellent 3* hotel Ivory Playa or the 4* hotel Grupotel Maritimo. You will also enjoy the support from our local team including our mechanic. Guaranteed entry into the 2024 Mallorca 312 is also available. We also welcome non-cycling partners.
Starting next to the Mediterranean coast, you will climb some of the nicest mountains of the island. Pass through traditional and rustic villages and then return back to enjoy your off-the-bike time! Mallorca has become the epi-centre of European cycling tourism in recent years. Its landscapes, its climate and its road network are without any doubt the 3 main reasons for this.
The Mallorca 312 is the longest one day amateur cycling event on the sportive calendar and it’s also one of the toughest. The long course takes in 312 kilometres of riding with over 5,000m of climbing. The other shorter distances still also pack in a lot of ascent. It’s nice to have a focus for your winter training but as the event comes fairly early in the year, it may be tough to put in the necessary training miles. It is great therefore that when you register for the event you don’t have to specify which route you will ride and like the Maratona dles Dolomites and the Sella Ronda, you can decide on the day. The initial part of all 3 distance routes is the same but if you get to half way and you don’t feel up to it, you can always do just the 167km. The event was conceived initially as a lap of the island but but now loops back back north to facilitate road closures. The sportive includes the main climbs of the Tramuntana mountains like the Puig Major, Col de sa Predissa and Col de Feminina.
This is the first time I have used Sports Tours and I am really impressed. The efficiency, the friendliness, the off-the-cuff vital advice all made this toughie as enjoyable as it can. Few companies have retained their ethos since covid and this is one of them.
The organisation from the Sports Tours team was amazing from start to finish – every member of staff from the airport team, mechanics, organisers, drivers and drink stop team could not do enough for us all and they never stopped smiling! Please pass on my thanks to everyone! All 8 of us finished (somehow!!) and if we are ever stupid enough to ride it again we will be using you guys to book.
For 3 years, through cancellations, lockdowns and multiple flight cancellations, Sports Tours International have remained responsive and professional – all staff and especially yourself, Vicki, very helpful and efficient, and the organisation and hotel set-up was first-class, I’d not hesitate to book with Sports Tours again.
