What if You Only Have 2 Days to Skate in Mallorca?
Suppose you are in Alcudia and only have two days for skating,
which tours would you recommend?
A fellow skater, who could not participate, after having read
the Swedish version of this resume, raises the above question.
Given I was fit (covered at least 500 kilometers over the past
month) and was comfortable with my equipment (boots mainly),
and had water supply for 4 hrs skating I would go for the
That is what I would skate if I had limited time in Alcudia.
Bear in mind that the southeast part of Mallorca is totally
unknown to us, so it might even be that the best Mallorcan
skating conditions are still to be found?
Anyone who wants to check it out, please do not forget to
send Kathie Fry a good report that she can publish!
First day I would skate the tour Sa Pobla - Büger - Campagnet
- Moscari - Selva - Binianmar - Lloseta - Binnisalem - Sencelles
- Sinéu - Maria de la Salut - Santa Margalida - Can Picafort -
That would lead me on flat ground to Sa Pobla, to Büger on its
little hill and then some fairly easy rolling hills with
magnificent views at Campagnet to Binnisalem.
This tour should give you a nice view of both the landscape
and the villages on the east side of Mallorca.
Can you find the little bar with the huge TV screen in Biniamar,
I would strongly recommend you to ask for pasta there.
But do not look for a bar sign, cause there is none.
The day after I would go for the mountains if I wanted
to be macho and had it arranged with transportation down
to Selva again. From Selva I would skate via Inca, Llubi
and Sa Pobla back to Alcudia.
With no macho desires, I would skate north toward Puerto
de Pollenca and halfway turn left to Pollenca. From
Pollenca further direction southeast via Can Roig, cross
the main road from Inca and go down to Sa Pobla. Then
via Llubi - east toward Son Suan - southeast toward
Maria de la Salut - Santa Margalida - the narrow road
north to Muro via Son Morro - via Son Sorro to Can Picafort
and back to Port d´Alcudia.
If there was a third day I would probably do what I did
not do; take the bus to Palma and skate across Mallorca
back to Alcudia. After cruising Palma for a while, of course.
