Service

The Mallorca 312 is international but also a bit Mediterranean, relaxed but professionally organised, and it’s going from strength to strength each year. Started only six years ago, with just 199 riders taking part, in 2015 that figure was 3,200. Probably the best early-season, long distance challenge it’s as spectacular as it is testing on the legs. With a time limit of 14 hours and a distance to be covered further than most will have tackled in two days, this isn’t a ride for the faint hearted.

The full distance covers 312km, and now you also have the option take on a shorter, but no-less compelling 167km ‘medio’ route. Both distances start and finish in Alcudia with the police running an escort and professional riders managing the pace at the start, before everyone is let loose after about 20km. Classier and more challenging than your usual Sportive event, a route through the most amazing spots of the Balearic Island, and an emphasis on camaraderie and working as a group on the ride, the 312 has all the ingredients for a unique and fantastic day in the saddle.

The Mallorca 312’s lap of the island can be almost perfectly divided into two halves. The opening half of the course focusses on the mountains of the Tramuntana, with nine mountain pass ascents including the classic Coll de Femenia, Coll de sa Batalla and Puig Major trio. The second half of the Mallorca 312 leaves the mountains, dropping down to the flat plains, where wind and group management become the main focus for riders. This race of two halves therefore provides a unique challenge that has features to suit and test all riders from the polka dot jersey wearers, to the flat land loving rouleurs.

Cycle from the sunrise till the sunset. Welcome to the Mallorca 312!
