Thanks to the varying scenery and terrain in Mallorca, with miles of flat, winding or steep roads, it’s a popular place for athletes and cyclists. There are several bike shops in Puerto Pollença where you can rent a bike for the day, both of the simpler kind and ones for real professionals.
We took a sunset ride with friends up to Formentor thanks to Max at Watt Style. Max founded the bike shop four years ago after deciding he needed freedom from a 9-to-5 job that felt empty and lifeless. Today, he arranges rides that combine e-bike tours and other activities. Friends in Andratx booked e-bikes for 10 of us. We started 45-minutes before sunset. Several in our group were senior citizens and Max made sure that we all made it safely up the mountain.
At the lookout, we met Antoni Faidella, a drummer who works with Max to have drumming lessons that reverberate forever, it seems. His instructions were like writing poetry with the drums in a gift to the heavens. Watching the sunset and drumming is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
If you decide to buy an e-bike, Max will make you a good deal.
