SeaDream Active – Biking Menorca
The sport of mountain bike/cycling is growing in popularity and the island has an extensive network of unpaved paths, paved roads and country lanes which have very little traffic. Many of the paths follow ancient routes across the island, which pass the standing stones and settlements erected during the Bronze Age. Some trails follow unpaved country lanes between the lovely stone walls which form an integral part of the beautiful Menorcan landscape. Cycle routes are clearly signposted and offer access to remote parts of the island which vehicles cannot access. With rolling hills, quiet roads, and many kilometers of unpaved trails, Menorca cycling is one of the best ways to explore the hidden parts of this unspoiled island. New well signposted cycle routes have recently been created along some of the oldest trails on the island, following routes as old as human settlement here. Today these ancient walkways are bordered with dry stone walls beside pretty small fields and pastures which in spring and early summer are covered in wild flowers. Many of the trails are unpaved but with a hybrid or mountain bike, the trails are easily within the abilities of most cyclists. There are more than three thousand kilometers that are practicable with mountain bikes – these unpaved paths offer challenges for all levels of experience and technical expertise but with many short steep climbs and drops they are not for the fainthearted.
