WE did it! On 2, 3, 4 October 2020 in spite of Covid-19, we rode
THREE DAYS, 400KM and did
A FANTASTIC TOUR OF MALLORCA
Ride a wonderful tour of Mallorca, taking in at least four extremities of the island; climbing over 7,000 meters in over 400km across three days.
6Points practices conscious courtesy to other road users and rides in groups of 10 to ensure that we do not interfere with traffic. There are no road closures for the event.
Due to Covid-19 and the resulting issues with hotels, we are unable to do our normal routes on Days 2 and 3. Instead, we will spend 2 nights in Port d’Pollensa and Day 2 will take in beautiful Formentor and ride to Lluc and down one of the best passes on the island to Caimari before returning to the Port. Day 3 will take us to Muro, Sineu, the wonderful climb to Randa, Col des Tords and to the finish in Santa Ponsa.
Join one of our paced groups, or bring your own team to take on the challenge.
With ride support provided, hotels, dinners and entertainment arranged and a great group of riders to join, there really isn’t a better way to enjoy cycling on Mallorca.
Now confirmed, Senses 6Points Mallorca will take place on 2, 3, 4 October 2020. Something to look forward to!.

"I got signed Into 6Points Ibiza and Formentera 2019 by a friend. I must say even though I wasn't physicaly prepared and had no expectations about the event it was an absolute delight, everyone was exceptional when riding and it really felt like a team day out. Stunning scenery and the Balearic weather made the days we rode feel like I was in a dream. Bring on 6Points 2020!”
"This was my first trip to Mallorca and what a great way to see the island! The route was brilliantly planned to capture the beauty of the place. The team spirit was incredible and, at the end of the three days, strangers felt like old friends. Bring on next year!"
"I joined 6Points for the 2018 event, the second running. It's a stunning ride, hard enough to be a challenge, not so tough that I couldn't down a beer or two at the end of each day with the new friends I had made on the road. The camaraderie, and the stunning riding through amazing scenery made sure I signed up for more of the same in 2019, and I'll see you there in 2020. It's a perfect event and I'll keep coming back as long as they keep organising them.”
"My favourite way to ride in Mallorca. An amazing event, run by wonderful people; I'll be back next year for sure."
"6Points for me sets a cycling goal at the very top limit of my ability. With the whole support and group feel of the 6Points those barriers get smashed and the feeling of completion, self satisfaction via teamwork are wonderful. So good in fact I’m back again this year.”
"Having completed 6Points of Ibiza and Formentera with my son last year and loved every minute of it, we are so looking forward to 6Points Mallorca in May. Amazing scenery, smooth roads, friendly like-minded people, an event with a family feel which I think is quite rare these days, and all for charity.”
“6Points Mallorca is an incredible ride around the beautiful island of Mallorca taking in all the iconic spots. The ride caters for all abilities and is a well run multi-day event for a good charity cause. I couldn’t wait to sign up for 2020!”
“I took part in 6Points Mallorca for the first time in 2019 and loved the format of the event. There can be no better way of fully appreciating literally every corner of this beautiful island – great company, clever grouping based on fitness and ability, superb organisation and a fantastic charitable cause. Above all, it’s inclusive and fun, allowing participants the opportunity to get to know one’s fellow riders over three days of riding in one of the world’s very best road cycling locations.”
“I have now participated in four 6Points Cycling Challenges, two on the island of Mallorca and two on the islands of Formentera and Ibiza. I have also participated in many cycling events in several parts of the world including the Mallorca 312, the Cape Argus cycle tour, The London 100, etc. but I have to say that the events that stand out for me are the 6Points Cycling Challenges. 1/3
In my opinion the events are unique in that they aim to provide an exceptional cycling experience over several days (3 for Mallorca, 2 for Ibiza/Formentera) whilst raising significant amounts of money for charity. The support provided during these events is excellent and the camaraderie developed over several days of riding together is exceptional. 2/3
The riders are split into Groups based on personal preferences and actual or perceived speed on the road. Each Group has a leader to ensure that the “no drop” motto is delivered upon as well as to ensure that the riders arrive at their daily destinations. I can honestly say that the first date that went into my diary for cycling events in 2020 was 6Points Mallorca 2020, and I cannot wait!” 3/3
