Cycling team in Mallorca At 871 metres it is the highest mountain pass on the island, without taking into account the very seldom used route up to the Alfabia ridge and the military road up to the top of the Puig Mayor itself, both of which have very limited access.

What to see and do:
Admire the views as you cycle through the Orient valley, a little used (by cars anyway) route.
Take a short detour and visit Lluc Monastery
Finish the ride with an 18 kilometre descent!!
