Let Sportactive take care of logistics while you just ride the event.
The Mallorca 312 (or M312) is Europe’s longest amateur sportive and one of the most popular.  8500 riders take on the challenge and ride one of it’s 3 routes which start and finish in Playa de Muro/Puerto Alcùdia .
This is just 5 kms flat ride from the SportActive Cycle Centre.

The three routes you can ride are:

The M312 – 312 kms
The M225 – 225 kms
The M167 – 167 kms

The basic M312 sportive package provides the following :

  • Event entry
  •  4 or more nights half board, sharing a standard studio (room upgrades available).
  • Total flexibility for arrival and departure dates.
  • Airport transfers
  •  Bike hire available and mechanical assistance for your own bike if needed. Private SportActive bike garage with bike mechanic
  •  Pre-event information meeting to give you the information you need to complete any distance of the M312. We’ll provide you with invaluable advice on strategy, pacing, etc.
  • Support – You will be supported by SportActive in-sportive riders and a backup car carrying spare parts, food, drinks, essential items, and some of your personal items. We’ll support you using a system of prearranged meeting points and we are there if you encounter issues.
  • The perfect sportive breakfast at the hotel at 5 am on the race day
  •  Professional Sports Massage available (fees apply).

Regardless of the route ridden climbing is a big part of the Mallorca 312. All three routes take you through the Tramuntana Mountain Range. This Range is world famous in cycling circles with pro ­ peloton teams training here year in year out. Many pro teams such as Team Sky are based in Mallorca. In part this is down to the Tramuntana Mountain Range. In 2017 all three routes involved riding to the highest point in Mallorca, Puig Major. No doubt in 208 you will be riding it again or for the first time of this is your first M312. Every year the organisers try and make the M312 more challenging. In 2017 there was more climbing involved than ever before. In 2018 the route is the same, so the climbing challenge is maintained this year.

There can be no denying that fitness levels will need to be good to complete any of the M312 courses. 167 kms is a long way to ride in one day. To help you achieve the distances we provide plenty of food, drink, and advice, giving you support and encouragement every step of the way.
