The M312 is the longest amateur sportive in Europe. This year it was bigger than ever before, with over 6000 riders taking on the challenge. As last year the roads were closed to traffic and there was a choice of three routes, the M312 – 312 kms, M225 – 225 kms, and the M167 -167 kms.
We had fifty riders in the event. Here’s what a few of them said after crossing the finish line with flying colours;
Marianne said, “Great day out at the Mallorca 312 on Saturday. Brilliant views, fresh air and company.”
While Orla commented, “We survived the Mallorca 312km! What a day!”
Heather said, “I must admit I never thought I'd ever manage to get round the 167 km route! Would never attempt the 312 challenge but would maybe consider same route again next year at a faster pace and maybe get a chance to look at the amazing scenery there!”
All of our riders did well to finish the Mallorca 312 sportive. All routes take you through the Tramuntana mountain range, and each year the organisers find a way to make the routes a bit more challenging by adding in more climbing.
On M312 day the island comes to a standstill. The whole island celebrates the event. It is very well organised and there are plenty of feed stations along the route. If you have ridden in Mallorca, you will know how smooth the roads are. They are long and winding and offer thrilling descents and challenging climbs.
Using a system of pre-arranged meeting points we are there with refreshments and your personal items. We have in sportive riders with you for every kilometre you ride so should you run into problems help is only a phone call away. We carry a large array of spare parts too, so you don’t have to worry if you get a puncture. We’ll get you back in the event quickly.
Prior to the event we take care of all logistics including arranging your registration and race number, and ensuring you have all the information you need.
