Pollença to la Victoria
I had a short holiday in the Northern part of Mallorca at the end of September 2021. I've always wanted to try cycling there but despite many previous holidays in the area I've never managed to find the time to do so. However, this time I found I was staying just around the corner from a bike hire shop so arranged a few short rides in the middle of my holiday. This is the first of three pre-planned routes. The circular route starts in the lovely old town of Pollença where I was staying and heads initially to the coastal town of Puerto Pollença before heading along the shoreline to Alcudia and then takes a short detour that was recommended to me by the bike shop owner for the scenery - and he was certainly right. The views across the bay to Alcudia, Puerto Pollença, and Formentor are stunning. The rest of the route inland to Sa Pobla and then back to Pollença can be found in another two following videos (two because I had a puncture - which I discovered changing in 30-degree heat with no shade is no fun!
This was also my very first time cycling on the right side of the road. Can you spot how many times I got it wrong in the first kilometer!
