17. La Victoria

Alcúdia, Mallorca, Spain

FulGaz Grand Tour

Often used as a warm up/cool down ride coupled with Cap Formentor (available on FulGaz) you’ll depart from the Marina at Puerto Pollensa on a cycle path route that hugs the bay. It’s a relatively busy section, as you’re on a main road along the coast, but you’re right by the water’s edge and it’s a pleasure to tap along the easy flat gradients. Finally you'll pass through stone pillars and onto the La Victoria peninsula, leaving the urban areas behind you. Bar S’illot (and apparently a nudist beach!) is on your left as you start climbing. The road up to Ermita de la Victoria is narrow, steep (16% in places) and wooded but with under a kilometre from the junction to the car park at the top, at least it’s not too long.
