The old railway that used to connect the towns in the interior of Mallorca now offers a level track with a good surface of gravel and compacted earth. It is an easy, safe route for cyclists, bordered by fences and trees, and joins the towns of Artá, Son Servera, Son Carrió, San Lorenzo and Manacor. Along the way the scenery alternates between agricultural fields and Mediterranean woodland, and the track passes through tunnels and stations.
There are 7 rest areas with tables and benches. From Cala Ratjada we cycle there along the by-roads via Son Jaumell and Na Maians, from Canyamel the access to the track is by following route 7 which joins up with the Via Verde. It is a relaxing route through attractive countryside that you are sure to like. You set your own limits but think of the way back and save your strength.
