Climbing up the Coll de Femenia from Puerto Pollensa at the start of this ride certainly gets the blood flowing. After a few miles of gentle climbing the road suddenly kicks up with twists, turns and steep gradients it climbs 1900 ft to the summit. The climb is known to cyclists as ‘Lluc’ which is the name of the Sanctuary, just off the road, near the top. This is followed by a great decent down to Selva and on to Inca, Llubi, Santa Margalida and Son Serra de Marina for lunch.
After lunch we returned to base past Can Picafort, Alcudia and along the coast road.
Total distance 66 miles with 3500 ft of climb.
