With 312 kilometres, the cyclotourism circuit, Mallorca 312, will be the longest of all such circuit held in Spain. It constitutes an important date in the calendar which will reinforce the already growing enthusiasm for this sport in Mallorca, a country which offers an unbeatable setting all year round thanks to its excellent climate, landscape and roads.
For the members of professional cycling teams who travel to this corner of the Mediterranean every year to train, Mallorca 312 presents itself as a unique experience. The circuit’s route will follow the perimeter of the island, combining stretches through familiar places and other less visited but equally beautiful areas.
It will take a total of 14 hours to complete, pedalling through such emblematic places as the Playas de Muro, Alcudia, la Sierra de Tramuntana or Andratx, the maritime boulevard in Palma, Porto Cristo and Artá. These are just some of the places that this large group of cyclists, expected to number over 500, will cycle through. The test will begin at 7 o’ clock in the morning on 5 June and the finish line will be kept open until 8 o’ clock in the evening.
In order to encourage participation, middle distance cyclists and cyclotourists will be able to complete an alternative 167 kilometre route. The start and finish points will be in the same place as those for Mallorca 312, but the route itself will cover the north eastern part of Mallorca.
