The road is narrow and a bit bumpy but certainly passable and typical of most Mallorca country lanes. The road ends at a fork with some large closed gates on the left side. Since the gate was closed we took the RH track which was certainly pot holed and a bit dodgy. It is a dead end. When we returned to the fork we then read the notice and realized that it you drive up to a white line the gates will open automatically.

God forbid me to be accused of disliking bikers, but I would imagine that a certain “dress code” is called for.

Even though it is in the sticks, the museum is definitely “up market” and would not be out of place in any major capital city.

Lycra would probably be accepted, but frowned upon, but in no way can I imagine them allowing people to enter the underground art gallery wearing cycling shoes making click click noises with every step they take.

Just my opinion. I well may be wrong.

But not all cyclists wear lycra and cycling shoes.

Thanks, we may give it a go then, we cycle long distances, we cycled from Pollensa to the golf club in Alcanada, and all the way to Mal Pas pass the turning off to it, so should be ok

Yes, Sparky, I agree.

It was only a polite way of warning cyclists that they should be prepared in case they are not allowed in without adequate clothing and footwear.

Having said this, it would take a braver man than me to cycle there and back from and to the main road, especially the last bit after the entrance gate. Will be interesting to find out how our bike friends get on.

I've cycled it a couple of times, bumpy, but doable.

In London i'm a member of the Tate, the Royal Academy and the Royal Opera House and turn up to each in (discrete) lycra and shoes that aren't too noisy!

We finally made it here today, after many false starts over the years. Itís actually not difficult to find, just follow the purple signs and keep going (if you play golf at Alcanada, itís the road that runs along the right side of the 2nd and 3rd holes. Prob a 20 minute drive from PP). Tuesday afternoon is free entry to the Ninos exhibition and sculpture park. Itís a really relaxed and cool place, and today was a nice taste for a longer visit.

Just for clarity - although it is close to the Alcanada golf course, there is no road access from the Alcanada side. Road access is via Mal Pas

Thrilled that you made it there. We had hoped to get there in the summer but time ran away from us. Definitely will be there during the school Easter holiday weeks.
