Mallorca 312: The ultimate test of endurance
The Mallorca 312 is not just defined as challenging due to its 300 kilometres itnerary. It also has more than 5000 metres of gradient, a statistic which isn’t surprising given the geographical structure of Mallorca: the participants in this year’s event will begin their journey in Playa de Muro, heading through Andratx and will do a lap around the island until they reach the Mallorca 312 base in Artà. The contestants will cross the majestic Serra de Tramuntana and its mountains, which explains the gradient involved.. Esporles, Alaró, Lloseta and Artà are some of the areas which the participants will pass through in order to reach their objective. Sport and visual beauty unite in a unique occasion once a year. Pollentia Rentals, holiday rental agency in Mallorca, are experts on the north, which is why, if you would like to rent a holiday villa in Pollensa or any of the municipalities in the north of the island, don’t hesitate to consult our catalogue of holiday villas for cyclists.

If the thought of covering 300 kilometres seems like too great a challenge for your legs, you will find it interesting to know that this event has two shorter distances. Right up until the day of the race, you can decide if you want to take on the Mallorca 312, or if you want to reduce the distance a little to just over200 kilometres with the Mallorca 225 or to less than 200 with the Mallorca 167. There is a route for every cyclist. All three have a maximum time limit. The shorter routes must be completed in 10 hours. In the 312 the time limit is 14 hours. It’s worth keeping in mind that the professional cyclists who do the longer route, tend to finish in less than 10 hours.
