CYCLING IN MAJORCA ONE OF EUROPE'S GREAT DESTINATIONS
Cycling in Mallorca is one of the best ways to see some of the island's hidden treasures and dramatic countryside. Whether you're a serious cyclist looking to get in some training in the spring sunshine, or just want to enjoy pottering around the quiet country lanes enjoying the countryside and the smell of the wild flowers and citrus trees.
In 2011 Son Net was chosen by the world's leading cycling team, Saxo Bank - SunGaard and three times Tour de France Winner Alberto Contador, for the team's pre-season training camp.
