The Camí de Cavalls is along hiking trail that goes arround the island of Menorca, generally along the coast.
The Camí de Cavalls can be done on a mountain bike with more or less difficulty.
It is important to point out that in the 185 kilometers of the Camí de Cavalls there are sections that cannot be covered even by mountain bike. Other sections, on the other hand, are highway or urban areas.

Go cycling on the roads of Menorca
Menorca is a relatively flat island. The north is slightly mountainous, meaning it has more hills, and the south tends to be fairly flat.
In the south we find the ravines, which represent a sudden descent, but this is not usually an inconvenience.
At the level of cycle tourism, the bike paths in Menorca could be divided into 5 large groups:
Menorca’s main road (Me-1) is a road that crosses the island from East to West and concentrates most of the island’s traffic. It usually has wide shoulders and the maximum speed cannot exceed 90km/h (for cars ;)
Secondary roads are, in my opinion, the most dangerous for cyclists, since in many cases they do not have a hard shoulder or the hard shoulder is very narrow, there are many curves, and because of trees and bushes, there is not good visibility on those curves.
Because these secondary roads are relatively wide, it is common for drivers to get overconfident and drive faster than they should.
Rural roads include old dirt or paved roads. On these roads the number of vehicles is less. The speed of the vehicles is also usually lower, since they are quite narrow and the state of some of the roads does not allow drivers to drive very fast.
This category of rural roads also includes roads not suitable for vehicles. Inland roads that are more paths for hikers than roads.
Lastly, we have the Camí de Cavalls, a trail created by riders from other times, resurrected for hikers but, in general terms, suitable for excursions with mountain bikes.
If you want to rent a mountain bike to go around Menorca by bicycle, we recommend that you inform yourself well about the difficulties of each section.↑
