Mallorca 2018 – Suggested Rides and GPS links

There are a large number of Southport riders travelling to Mallorca in October. Each day there will be a number of different groups setting out from the hotel with plans to visit different parts of the island. There will probably be a “fast” group and  a “touring” group undertaking some of the rides below and a “steady” group completing shorter rides.

Group leaders, routes and times will be sorted out informally during the trip.

The routes below are suggestions. Links to “ridewithgps” for each ride allow you to download a gps file.

YOU NEED TO BE AWARE the gps files do not have “cue sheets” – make sure the downloaded files work on your unit if you intend to rely on them. (TAKE A MAP!!)
