With “Rad & Finca” on Mallorca, by Susanne Egli, May 2015

The tours are easy and can also be mastered by inexperienced cyclists…

…can be read on the homepage of That would be just right for me, since I haven’t ridden a racing bike for several years. However, I should manage the 6 stages of 12 to 70 km and otherwise I could sometimes skip one, because you always stay in the same place on the so-called rally. So I would have two birds in one go. On the one hand I could do some sports and at the same time relax comfortably on the luxurious Finca Son Canals in Mallorca.

Immediately after booking, I was sent detailed route plans with kilometer information by post. But then the first doubts arose: “Do I have to cycle there alone and look for the route?” Otherwise, I only know cycling holidays with a guide who drives ahead and you just pedal and follow him.

“You determine your pace, your breaks, as all of our tours are individual and not guided. There is no peer pressure! Experience has shown that a group forms and everyone rides together. During the week there are another 5 people on Son Canals. Everyone drives the same tours. The route description is an orientation aid, and our routes are also marked with our own arrows on street signs.”

I was informed by Rad & Finca. I was curious to see if I would be able to join a group, especially as I only arrived a day later. Shortly after arriving at Son Canals, I was introduced to the other participants. Claudine and Thomas from Switzerland, Claus-Peter and Uschi with their daughter Steffi from Erfurt in Germany. They all drove the 1st stage that day and in fact we agreed right away that I would drive together with the three Germans from tomorrow. After dinner I was warmly welcomed by Uli and Stefan, the makers of “Rad & Finca”, and the stages were discussed again. The 21-speed trekking bike that I had ordered in advance fit perfectly. The equipment included a number lock, a practical side pocket and a steering wheel pocket, in which you can stow the map material so that it is clearly visible.

On the first day, however, I didn’t need a route map. After a hearty breakfast we only went to the train station in Petra, where we parked our bikes and took the train to Palma. A guided city tour awaited us there. Although I had visited Palma so many times before, I learned a lot of interesting news about the city of Palma and Mallorca from the tour guide. Of course, there was also enough time to stroll through the many alleys, to linger while shopping or to have fun in one of the pretty street cafés.

From Tuesday the stages were a bit longer. Round trips between 36 and 70 km were on the program, but always with varied stops, which the bike and finca organizers had chosen with great sensitivity. Everything was perfectly organized and included in the package price.

On the 2nd day we first drove on side roads with little traffic to a restaurant with typical Mallorcan “Pa amb Oli” (bread and olive oil), before we continued past almond and olive trees to Santa Maria del Camí. A tour with tasting at the Macia Batle winery was reserved for us in the late afternoon. So that we could also enjoy the wine, we were picked up by “Rad&Finca” with our bikes and taken back to the finca by van. Although the noble grape juice from Binissalem was not available by the liter, it relaxed our mood a bit. In the evening, when we had dinner together, we laughed a lot and we got to know each other better during a kind of “cheerful career advice”.

Another highlight took place on the 3rd day. After a visit to the market in Sineu, we ended up having lunch in the village of Maria de la Salut in a local butcher’s shop. With a lot of warmth, the family business generously served everything that Mallorcan cuisine has to offer. Strengthened with sobrasada, cheese, tomatoes, olives, bread and ensaimada up to herbal schnapps we cycled the last 10 kilometers back to the finca.

I skipped the king’s stage of 70 km the following day. Well rested, I tackled the stage on the 5th day together with the three Germans. The four of us got along great and complemented each other well. I was always overtaken uphill by the lightweight accountant Uschi, as if she were riding an e-bike. Then I was able to trump on the descents and catch them all again. The fact that Monika, the host of Finca Son Canals, accompanied us today was of course the icing on the cake. At a first stop at the aloe vera farm, we were allowed to fortify ourselves with an aloe vera drink and learned some interesting facts about this plant. We then drove on beautiful country roads to the hotel-free coastal village of Son Serra de Marina to the “El Sol Sunshine Bar”. After a delicious lunch right on the beach, the 15 km walk home seemed endless. This was probably also due to the fact that we encountered all kinds of animals through the shady pine forest. Of course, the young black pigs had to be captured in pictures. We also wanted to drive an escaped kid back to the herd. Unfortunately, the completely frightened young animal did not want to be helped.

A varied ride to the village of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar finally rounded off an unforgettable cycling week. I don’t know how many plant and animal species we passed on the 6th stage. From artichoke fields to lemon trees, we saw everything. On the way back we drove over the newly created Via Verde. A 28 km long cycle and hiking trail that was actually intended as a route for the railway.

After 6 stages with almost 200 km in the pedals (I know others can do this in one day) and many fun hours on the bike, this week was just the thing for me.

From a dreamlike finca in the middle of Mallorca, the guests start on relaxed bike tours across the island – and a guided city tour of a special kind.

By Julia Siegers

It’s no secret that the Balearic island is a popular destination for cyclists, especially in spring and autumn – so far, however, most people have associated it more with the sporty racing bike or mountain bike variant. The new “Rad und Finca Mallorca” offer is much more relaxed: A central starting point, robust, comfortable trekking bikes, new tours to the most beautiful places every day and an attractive supporting program await holidaymakers.

The organizers Ulrike Mavro and Stefan Lindemann have been living in Mallorca for many years. As an experienced guide of cycle tours, Lindemann knows the island’s cycle paths, its beauty away from mass tourism – and the wishes of its guests. “We were often asked that accommodation on a finca would be much more appealing for cyclists in particular than a ‘normal’ beach hotel. We can now fulfill this wish with Finca Son Huguet.”

The holiday home is beautifully situated between Petra and Ariany in the rural center of the island. The four double rooms and one suite have been lovingly and individually furnished by the owners Joaquim and Fernando. The arrival is always on Mondays, preferably by taxi from the airport in Palma (approx. 60 km, costs approx. 60 €). At the welcome barbecue in the evening, Ulrike Mavro and Stefan Lindemann provide information about the tours on the following days, hand out maps and vouchers, and adjust the bikes individually. The atmosphere is relaxed, as is the level of difficulty of the tours. The guests will cycle at their own pace: “For us, it’s about enjoyment, not about speed,” explains Ulrike Mavro. In addition to the handy road maps to take with you, the routes are marked with our own clearly visible arrows, so that everyone can easily find their way around. With a length of 40-70 km, the day tours are also easy to manage for inexperienced cyclists or families with children from around 12 years of age. In addition, the organizers can be reached at any time in the event of problems and also take care of the comfortable return transfer.

After a sumptuous, home-made breakfast, the day begins on a new path: on leisurely country roads and old connecting paths across the island to the Tramuntana mountains (Tuesdays), to the oldest and most beautiful market on the island in Sineu (Wednesdays), to the Beach to Puerto Pollensa and through the nature reserve S’Albufera (Thursdays), on rustic paths through pine forests to the hotel-free coastal village of Son Serra de Marina with one of the most beautiful natural beaches on the island (Fridays). The highlight on Saturday, after arriving by train, is the city tour by bike through Palma de Mallorca. A trained guide will show you all the sights, including the entrance to the world-famous cathedral. An exciting week ends on Sunday with a quiet tour to the east coast to the dreamy fishing village of Porto Petro and the nature reserve of the bay of Cala Mondrago.

What makes the bike tours so special, in addition to impressive nature experiences, are the intermediate stops (included in the price) selected with great sensitivity, which make the Mediterranean holiday feeling perfect: typical Mallorcan “Pa amb Oli” (bread and olive oil) in a rustic tavern, a wine tasting in a bodega, Mallorcan sausage buffet in a typical butcher’s shop or lunch in a beach bar.

In the evenings after the bike tours, you can relax at the pool of the finca, while the shared living room is illuminated by soft candlelight. Joaquim and Fernando, the owners of the property, are happy to prepare individually tailored evening meals in addition to breakfast.

If cycling alone is not enough sport, there are horseback riding, diving or surfing options. On the other hand, if you want to add a little beach holiday after such a sporty week, you can do so in an apartment on the beach. Ulrike Mavro and Stefan Lindemann always have an open ear for individual wishes, true to their motto: “We want the holiday to be fun.” Their guests can confidently assume that.
