Descending the Orient in Mallorca
There's no doubt about it, Mallorca has some of the best descents a road cyclist could ever ask for, from Sa Calobra to Puig Major and everything in between.
However, getting a decent run on these descents just seems to get more and more difficult each year, as the number of cyclists and cars (and, this year, motorcycles!) cluttering up the Mallorcan roads seems to grow exponentially.
So much so that, in an entire week of cycling in Mallorca recently, I got just one uninterrupted descent in. Luckily, I had the GoPro switched on. Enjoy!
