Menorca cycling routes and bike hire

dannyharrisdannyharris Posts: 217
I'm off to Menorca on sept 10th and want to hire a bike for a day or two.
Anyone had any experiences with hiring over there?
Also any suggested routes to cycle? 50+ miles with some hills would be nice.
Searched forums but not had much luck.

    I was there last year. Info below. It's nice but it's not Mallorca. Try to do a bit of homework beforehand to plan some routes would be my advice. Hope it helps.

  • Thanks. I had read this post. And looking at google maps the side roads don't look the best. Might just give it a miss.

    I wouldn't want to put you off, there is still some nice cycling to be had. I just didn't prepare enough for it. If I had spent a bit of time creating some routes I would have enjoyed it better. The rides that I did manage to fit in were all good though. Cycling in the sun, what's not to like :-)
