There’s no feeling like it in the world. The rush of adrenaline and relief racing through your acing body, as you cross the finish line and collect your medal.

Only “a cyclist knows that feeling” of suffering and overwhelming emotion, upon reaching your personal goal, and the joy of celebrating it with fellow riders, family and friends afterwards.

It’s something money cannot buy. You have to go out there and “earn it”. There are no shortcuts, no excuses, you have to lay all your cards, both physically and mentally down on the table. For many, just getting to the start line is worthy of a medal in its own right.

This weekend saw around 8,500 cyclists from around the world (over 60 countries), line up very early in the morning chill, to set off on an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime.

With the stunning Platja de Muro as the starting and finishing point, the Mallorca 312 OK Mobility gathered around 8,500 participants from 56 countries for the one-day event.

The participants cycled on 3 different routes of 312, 225, and 167 kilometres around the island with all safety measures in place, as the roads were specially closed for the occasion.

This gave the participants the chance to enjoy the fantastic roads and beautiful landscapes the island offers without any traffic interference. 312 kilometres through the most amazing parts of the largest of the Spanish Balearic Islands and up to fourteen hours to make it!

OK Mobility was present the entire time with a branded stand and offered a resting area for the participants and a new VIP space, now called OK Mobility Lounge.

The island of Mallorca is a cyclist’s playground especially during the off-season.

Organizers do an excellent job in looking after participants and protecting the island’s environment during the event. As a result, islanders welcome cyclists wholeheartedly throughout the year, being one of the best training grounds in all of Europe.

Mallorca312 is definately one of "The Top 10 Bucket List Rides Globally".

Any self respecting cyclist should ride it at least once during their lifetime, they won't be disappointed.

2024 entries opened on October 3rd 2023 and "sold out in less than 10 minutes" for over 8,500 participants.
