Cycling Mallorca: Sa Calobra
Ahead of the Mallorca Experience Tri Camp next Spring, we will be sharing our favourite routes around the island to give you a flavour of what to expect out on the bike.
Can Picafort, Sa Calobra
Difficulty: Hard // 137.9km // 3,361m
The climb’s official name is the Col de Cal Reis but it is widely known as Sa Calobra — or the Cobra — and has become Majorca’s most fabled ascent, rising for just over 2,000 feet over the course of six miles. The road is draped on the mountainside like a coiled snake in a series of steep hairpins layered as if a plate of spaghetti has been dropped in this small corner of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains. It’s a marvel of engineering which makes it unique among the climbs we’ve encountered.
We discovered this blog by @georgetscott on Road Cycling UK which takes you out and back from Port de Pollença.
