You will have the option to extend your cycle by visiting three hermitages up Puig de Randa.

Day 3 Cycle from Algaida to Sineu via Sencelles
This morning you start by heading north to the villages of Pina and Sencelles. While cycling along, the landscape turns flat and more barren. This is the wine producing district of Mallorca and you can visit wineries as you cycle from Sencelles via Santa Eugenia. Towards the end of this ride you will pedal through the hills before making your way to your cosy hotel in the centre of Sineu. Once you arrive in Sineu you can appreciate the mediaeval town with its impressive Gothic Church, narrow lanes and lively outdoor terraces.
Your total cycling distance today is approximately 33 kilometres (150 metres ascent and 225 metres descent) with the option to add a further 22 kilometres.
Day 4 Circular ride from Sineu to Petra
From Sineu you first cycle via Sant Joan to Petra, birthplace of Fray Juniperus Serra (the European ‘founder’ of California), where the monastery and iconographic museum are worth a visit. The hilltop hermitage of Bonnay is a prime spot to stop for lunch. During the last section of the route you can choose to cycle straight back to Sineu or make an interesting side excursion via Santa Margalida.
Your total cycling distance is approximately 30 kilometres (175 metres ascent and descent) with the option to add a further 14 kilometres.
Day 5 Ride from Sineu to Port de Pollena
Today you bid farewell to the countryside of Central Mallorca to ride north to Port de Pollena, one of the most enchanting beach towns of Mallorca.

The last part of this cycle will see you gently descending towards the sea.
Your total cycling distance is approximately 41 kilometres (200 metres ascent and 335 metres descent).
Day 6 Circular ride from Port de Pollena via Alcudia or St Vicen
After so many days on inland routes today you definitely want to explore some beautiful beaches on the north coast, like Playa St Vicent or the hidden Playa de Col Baix, near Alcudia. If you are a more passionate cyclist, you may wish to do the famous circular route through the Sierra Tramuntana via Lluc, but be advised that the ascent is tough and traffic can be a nuisance!
