Description

Coll de sa Bataia to Font de Vartix

I was on holiday on the beautiful island of Mallorca in Spain and wanted to cycle some of the hills to maintain my fitness levels.  Cycling in Mallorca is heaven. Most of the time the weather is glorious, the roads are super smooth and the other road users and motorists are incredibly courteous to cyclists - I think to some extent that's because they realise the value cycling tourism has to the island. 

I was staying in Pollença so this road was travelled many times over my stay to get to the other great Mollarcan cycling roads - it's also the route all the cyclists staying in the North of the island take to get to Sa Calobra (which I've never cycled). This short section, therefore, features in a number of my other Mallorcan videos - both up and downhill. I did this video the day I did the climb up the Coll de sa Bataia from Caimari and this mainly downhill ride was a welcome break from all the climbing that ride involved.  The last 5k of the ride back down to Pollença is an almost dead straight borning flat road so I stopped this video short at the Font de Vartix. If you wanted to do the longer 19.7k version that video is here.

The bike I used for these rides is a beautifully light stainless steel bike made by Independent Fabrication and on hire from n+1 Bicycles in Pollenca.
