A new look at Sobremunt, the hardest climb in Mallorca

This video is about the Sobremunt climb, especially near the top of the climb which is quite hard to find amongst the various agricultural estates up there – such as the Sobremunt estate itself. I added new music to it, and some more commentary and stills.

Here is some mapping for the ride:

Here are some views of the profile of the Sobremunt climb, from GCN and Cycle Fiesta:

I have also added the Strava analysis for the climb segment (with the embarrassingly slow time!) from the Ma1041 junction to the top of the Strava segment (not actually the top of the climb, but where I met Niels & Peter (in the video).

And finally, just the route for the climb, some landmarks, and start of the descent:-

  1. Brian what a fabulous informative video. This captures all that is good about cycling in barren areas of foreign countries.
    Certainly not for the faint hearted a credit to your fitness and cycling skills.
    Been to Mallorca loads cycling but never there . Thankfully I say lol.
    Great music choice and video quality to boot. Chapeau my friend.
