The Sa Calobra Descent


Awesome scenery with fantastic views in Mallorca.
The road has 26 hair pins – 7% average gradient , is 10km long, drops 670m to the ocean from the mountain top and is just simply stunning.
I will definitely be going back ….

  1. I just loved this, probably went down way too fast. We were a bit late so dodging tour buses wasn’t much fun. The ascent in the high 30s was hard, I’m much better in the cool! Thanks for sharing the memory.

      I just LOVED cycling in Majorca, based in Puerto de Pollensa. So much so I’m already booked to go back in March of next year…..
      I was very fortunate that when I descended the Sa Calobra it was in March before the touristy season really begins so the roads were relatively clear AND the weather was mild and warm as opposed to hot. I too fair better when cool, and suffer like a dog when I get too hot so I really enjoyed it. I’m already looking forward to going back to tackle it again. 🙂
