Mallorca cycling tourism up 25% as Taylor Wimpey España announces key Mallorca cycle race support

The Mallorca 312 is one of the island’s most testing and loved cycling competitions. Taking place on 27 April 2019, the race will cross 312 km of Mallorca’s beautiful landscape, including climbing 16,568 feet over the course of the route. Entrants will set off at 7 am and have until 9 pm to prove their mettle by completing the gruelling circuit.

This year, Taylor Wimpey España has chosen to support the race by hiring a stand at one of the key points along the route, which includes a stop at Arta – just a 15-minute drive from the leading Spanish homebuilder’s new Blue Cove development in Cala Lliteras. Available from €225,000 plus VAT, the two- and three-bedroom homes at Blue Cove offer a privileged first line location, offering spectacular views out over the turquoise bay. Apartments, duplexes and houses offer a range of accommodation types, all of which enjoy spacious outdoor areas, as well as use of the site’s communal pool and private parking spaces.

“Having had such an active presence on Mallorca for so many years, we’ve seen the island steadily build up its reputation as a world-class cycling destination. We’re delighted to become a part of that by getting involved in the internationally renowned Mallorca 312 this year.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España

Mallorca’s stunning scenery and Mediterranean climate, with fresh sea breezes to temper the heat, make it a fabulous place to explore on two wheels. The landscape ranges from open plains to rugged mountains to the idyllic coastline, meaning that cyclists have plenty of variety as they tour the island. The Mallorca 312 route takes in much of the northern half of the island, stretching as far east as Arta and out as far as Andratx to the west.

December to June is the key cycling season on Mallorca and the 2019 season is on track to be a hugely successful one, attracting an estimated 250,000 cyclists according to local tour operators and sporting events organisers. The 25% increase on 2018’s two-wheeled visitors means that Mallorca has emerged as the main holiday destination for European cyclists this year, according to those working in the local industry. Meanwhile, the AETIB reports that turnover from bicycle tourism is expected to hit £300 million over the course of 2019.

Part of Mallorca’s appeal (in addition to the beautiful weather and scenery) is its suitability to cyclists of all levels. The island welcomes complete novices just as warmly as it does professional racers. And, though the peak season runs until June, cyclists still flock to the island during the latter half of the year.

“The number of cyclists holidaying in Mallorca has increased hugely since 2010 and looks set to do so again this year. The island has responded by enhancing its facilities for cyclists, in order to enable them to enjoy Mallorca fully as they explore this fascinating destination.”
