The cycling world discovered Sardinia in 2017 when it hosted the Giro d’Italia Grande Partenza. What few people know is that it is also a fantastic early or late season cycling destination. It has perfect roads, minimal traffic, beautiful beaches, and fantastic food. Sardinia also has a great Mediterranean climate, so you’ll enjoy lovely warm conditions while viewing stunning scenery.
You will experience what this island is truly about all while racking up those pre season KM’s. We’ll take you to the best restaurants, where the chef cooks exclusively fresh products from the local market. We will visit Caseificio Funtanazza, where the Lampis family has been breeding black sheep for many generations and try some delicious cheese. Instead of tasteless energy bars, they’ll serve you shepherd’s bread, torrone and fregula on the roadside.
The programme, includes: A treasure trove of fantastic food & wines, wild nature and quiet and scenic roads. We start from the shining white quartz beaches of Cabras, hosting the mysterious ancient statues of the Giganti di Monte Prama , then we’ll climb the volcanic massif of the Montiferru, where they graze the Sardinian-Modican red cows producing a rich milk for the delicious cheese Casizzolu del Montiferru, a Slow Food Presidia. The final day we ride heading south along the beautiful Costa Verde across fascinating old mining villages and wild beaches.
We have options for different levels of riders as every loop can be made shorter or longer and you can hop on our support van at any time. Take a short break to explore Sardinia with us and escape the cold to ride in warm weather!
