The Spanish Islands Mallorca is located in the Mediterranean Sea. It is well known by nearly every European roadie. A lot of road pro teams are holding their early training camps in the mild climate of the islands. Thousands of road bikers from all different levels are coming to the islands during winter and spring in Europe to get the first kilometers in their legs. So the idea came up, that these beautiful Islands must have some amazing destinations for us mountain bikers too.

MTB meets road. Mallorca is favorite roadies destination during the winter times in Europe. The Girls cruising near the famous

One of the sweetest things about spending your riding holiday on an island is that you can end your riding day at the beach and enjoy the sunset with a drink.

But besides nice trails and beaches there's also room for some airtime at Mallorca. The girls getting some air on some tracks build by some locals. Thanks for showing us.

 Northshore pictures seems to be the DH course in San Salvador or Monte Sion. Other pictures are from a private DH course, the owner is the one at the wheel on the pick up picture. I live in Mallorca Wink ...and ride those trails often but no jumping, I ride more enduro trails. Mallorca is great for mountainbike riding and as the author of the post says, the nice weather allows non stop riding all the year, when Europe is covered with snow.
