The routes below have been derived over several (ie many) cycling trips to Majorca based at Puerto Pollensa.
They were originally hosted on a small website called "Biciclettas Pollensa" and so you will find that when you load the routes into your Garmin they are labelled Bi-Po-01, Bi-Po-02 etc etc.
For each route I have provided the total ascent, to give an indication of severity/difficulty. Bit of a health warning on these figures, some of them are calculated out of gpsies.com and I can't guarantee their accuracy, but they do give a relative indication.

Double mountain route. Takes the back roads through Campagnet and onto Caimari. From there it's the Selva Gorge climb to the petrol station, then left through
Escorca to the aqueduct/orange-seller. And then The Snake. ie down the 10kms of Sa Calobra. The descent is truly awesome. Have a coffee at the Port and then 10kms back up.
Re-route through Escorca to the petrol station junction, but keep left and pass the Lluch Monastery. A few short and sharp climbs to get to the top of the pass then it's downhill all the way back to Puerto Pollensa.

The scabby lanes around Lloret and on to Santa Maria have become increasingly scabby, so until they get resurfaced the recommendation is for V2 of Route 16.
This is basically the same route, but loops through Biniamar and Binisallem in both the outward, and the return, legs. Plus a nice section through Mancor de la Vall to the base of the Col de Batalla climb at Caimari.

A truly gorgeous route that uses a lot of small lanes (yes....even smaller than usual). Alcudia, bullrushes to Sa Pobla and then the pipe road. Left down a small lane to Sancelles (lunch) then onto Costitx and a tiny lane to LLoret. Sineu and down towards Llubi, then loop past Llubi station and some more small lanes onto the service road alongside the motorway. Across to Ullaro, then past the Campagnet Caves and home.

Along the northern coast then turning inland at Son Serra up the long drag towards Santa Margalida, past the cemetery then on to Maria. Take some lovely lanes to the outskirts on Llubi and then up the back lane to Sineu for coffee/cake/sarnie at one of the many cafes.
Out of Sineu past the windmill along the nice road to Muro (crossing your previous track), a back lane to Sa Pobla, then up to the golf course and a return to PP via Big Ditch Lane.

Distance: 81 miles. Total ascent: 5,300 ft.
Two good climbs - Orient and Selva Gorge.
This is a variation on Route 8 as it takes the smooth road up to Orient (and the slightly scabby descent to Bunyola). But it gives a lovely long zoom down to Santa Maria and the famous cake restaurant on the corner (Cellar Sa Sini).
A short spell on the Pipe Road, then through Binisalem to Llosetta before looping via BiniMar and Mancor De La Vell en route to CaiMari and the Selva Gorge climb. Turn right at the petrol station and descend (via three uphills) back to Pollensa.

Distance 77 miles. Total ascent approx 5,200 ft
Col de Trofla, Col d'Orient, Col de Battalla
This a derivative of Route 19, but because the road surface between the towns of Orient and Bunyola is truly appalling (to the point of being dangerous) we climb the Col de'Orient then descend back down the same lovely surface, and head into Alaro. Onto Santa Maria for a bite of lunch, then pipe road for a while before turning through Binisallem, Lloret, Biniamar, Mancor de la Vall, Caimari. Up the Selva Gorge (Col de Battalla), then descend the Femenia to Pollensa and on to the Port.
