If you are thinking of travelling to the "island of calm" to get to know it by bicycle, there are a few things you should know before cycling on Mallorca, as knowing the main characteristics of the bikes we offer can be the difference between a fabulous experience and one that is not so fabulous.

Bike hire on Mallorca offers all types of road bikes, so you can choose the one that best suits your physical condition and what you want to do.

What is a road bike

They are specially designed for training and competition. They usually have several plates and the wheels are thin. The posture is much more demanding. However, we can classify them according to the route category, which is what you would ideally do on Mallorca. From those that demand a more severe effort to those that are more gentle, for riding around and visiting both coves and beaches.

Road bikes are divided into Lightweight types, Endurance type and Aero type.

Bicycle rental on Mallorca: lightweight bikes

Among the services of Papagayo Bike is to offer the highest quality, professional and appropriate bikes to achieve what you have set out to do on your holiday. We renew them annually.

As for the characteristics of these bikes, they are multipurpose and are used a lot because they adapt to any road situation. They have a rigid but lightweight frame, which makes it easier to overcome the various obstacles.

Although it must be said that on flat routes it is not the most suitable, but it is when we want to climb.

Endurance Bikes

It's considered the most comfortable. When you access the rental of bicycles on Mallorca, the agency will be able to advise you on the best models to rent, according to the routes you are going to do.

Cycling on Mallorca requires all specialized shops to have the options you need. This type of bike is the best for longer routes and routes that require more strength.

The posture of the back is more upright, which makes it more comfortable. The handlebars are higher, the head tube is longer and the horizontal of the frame is smaller, as well as thicker and reinforced tubes.

It absorbs potholes and uneven surfaces and is ideal for cycling enthusiasts. It is not recommended if you want to do sprints.

Aero type bikes

They are aerodynamic and very fast. It is one of the most popular types of bicycles because its design allows it to reach much higher speeds, both on flat and downhill, but without sacrificing its performance in the climbs.

Its versatility attracts the attention of both amateurs and professionals of cycling on Mallorca. It is the most recommended for all the routes you can do and invent on the island.

Road bikes have the characteristic that they can be used in different scenarios: to ride, to train and to compete. In Mallorca all three possibilities are present, so it is important that you choose the bike that best suits your needs.
