Hello mate. The weather here is generally lovely through the Winter but it’s a bit more prone to storms which are increasingly severe but only last 2-3 days.
The climbs here go over 1,000mtrs and it can get really chilly on the descents. So at this time of year, I’ll generally wear a l/s base layer, a Gabba, arm-warmers and a gilet and sometimes even put on a shower jacket for descents. Get a bit warm on the climbs though. Don’t forget that I’m a soft southern wuss who feels the cold.
I heartily recommend the area though. Brilliant, beautiful, quiet climbs. We worked out that in a 6 hour ride on Monday that, once we were away from the coast, we’d seen more World Tour pros than either moving cars or other cyclists.
This trip we’ve seen Bahrain McClaren, Astana, NTT, Lotto Soudal, Sunweb, QuickStep, Vital Concept, Direct Energie, CCC plus women’s team and lots of Pro Conti.
If you want to know more and chat through good routes etc, just let me know.
Cheers mate...Know you're the man for Althea way
To be honest If I went to Mallorca in mid Feb I'd expect the same weather as you describe. As for the cold, despite being born and bred Northerner I really feel the cold( especially hands/feet)
Will be in touch if we decide to do it. Kristina wants to go to Cap Negret ( believe been done out recently) They do bike hire, but internet suggests there are other bike hire places ?
Food for thought
Thanks again...and enjoy your current trip
