In designing this cycling tour we’ve handpicked the best routes, the charming hotel with history and local character and an array of special events so that you can enjoy the endless delights of this island of Italia.
Arrive at Hotel Villa Mosca and begin with a bike fitting session, then meet the rest of the group.
The lively Sardinian town of Alghero is a flourishing tourist attraction not only for the summer masses and elite tourism, but also for a new cosmopolitanism. It is famous because it has been dominated by Catalans and just here, some people even speak Catalan. The Mura Catalane (Catalan walls) still surround the old town centre on the seaward side and it is pleasant to walk along and have a drink at sunset before a seafood dinner!
Loop bike ride from Alghero to Capo Caccia. Distance: 54 km / 33 miles.
Leaving the lovely Alghero, we travel North riding in the terrific area of the Vermentino wine. In this region, Nurra, the wind blows directly from the North West and the plants can’t grow higher than a few metres! If you have time you can visit Capo Caccia: Calcareous rocks spattered with caves and ravines that hide a mysterious world atop the turquoise sea.
The area of Punta di Giglio and Capo Caccia is an underwater cave paradise, the highlight of this bike tour. Dinner will be enjoyed at La Botteghina restaurant in Alghero.
Bike ride from Alghero to Bosa and Santu Lussurgiu. Distance: 96 km / 60 miles on hilly terrain.
Leave Alghero and arrive in Bosa skirting the coast. Here you can admire the massive Castello dei Malaspina or walk on the medieval roads of the old village. Due to a series of quite unique events, Bosa has managed to keep its territory unchanged. You will continue cycling along country roads passing through small villages and eventually climb the Montiferru Massive, where you will see the famous Siete Fuentes water sources in San Leonardo. Soon you will arrive in Santu Lussurgiu, admiring the great plateau of Ghilarza. In the evening you will be treated to dinner at Slow Food Presidia Antica dimora Gruccione
Bike ride from Santu Lussurgiu to Tharros via Cuglieri. Transfer to Oristano
Distance: 67 km / 41 miles, first 9 km uphill, then downhill and flat terrain.
After breakfast you will have time to visit the village filled with its morning scents of homemade sweets being prepared. The day’s trip will begin by cycling through the region of Montiferru, passing through small towns and admiring the Campidano plain from the top. Finally we will arrive in Tharros were we can visit the old Roman-Punic harbour of Tharros, the open air museum most visited in Sardinia. After a light lunch by the sea, a short transfer (or a 15 km cycle ) will take us to Cabras village, famous for the production of Bottarga – Sardinian caviar – where we’ll have wine tasting at Cantine Contini.
Bike ride from Oristano to Barumini and transfer to Pula.
Distance: 58 km / 36 miles along rolling hills.
We’ll bike through secondary roads up through little villages: the highlight today is Barumini, a small village placed in the heart of Sardinia which has become famous thanks to the most important archeological area of the island: the Su Nuraxi complex. Sardinia is quite well known not only for its natural beauties but also for its unique and peculiar buildings named Nuraghe, which appeared during the Bronze Age and which represent the symbol of the island.
Distance: 66 km / 41 miles along rolling hills
We will ride inland towards Domus de Maria and face the only big climb just before Teulada. Then we can enjoy the rolling hills while skirting the fantastic seaside of Baia Chia with its long sandy beaches, high sand dunes and crystalline waters, giving it a Caribean feel. It is only the vegetation, in particular the juniper trees typical of this region, that remind one that this fantastic island is in the Mediterranean. We will continue along the coast all the way back to Pula where a warm shower and a farewell dinner will await us.
Farewell Breakfast – Available transfer to Cagliari airport or town
