5 days of pedalling- the perfect antidote to stress & winter! Sunshine, wine, food, fresh air, deluxe accommodation, exercise = a fantastic holiday. Excellent to pedal all morning and eat delicious Sardinian food all afternoon.
Hot in June but worth it. The back roads from Bosa to Santu Lussurgiu a real highlight. I’m already thinking when I can plan a similar adventure.
Thanks Mauro – helpful, great bikes, your island is amazing
This was a great trip. We enjoyed the bikes, the roads, the accommodations and the adventure.
Would definitely recommend Bike Tour Sardinia to anyone planning a trip.
Hope to return someday and explore other towns and routes on the island.
We did a 7 day self guided bike tour around the Sardinian coast from Oristano to Pula. It was enjoyable and stress free due to the brilliant Mauro of Bike Tour Sardinia/Cicloposse – everything was organised for us. Bikes ready and set up for us on arrival with all spares etc on board; maps and step by step directions provided for every day of the trip with optional extensions and Mauro’s restaurant and beach tips given when we talked through them; high quality, friendly small hotels booked for us and luggage driven from hotel to hotel each day. We could not fault the organisation. The coastline is just beautiful making it a great cycle route. Saw lots of flamingoes and in late april there were colourful flowers all around.
It really was a great trip for us. The routes were good, the scenery was terrific, the weather cooperated, the hotels were fine, the food was good, you did a nice job coordinating, the shuttles to and from the airport were done right.
Thanks for a nice trip
I’d do it again.
We had a great trip – thanks for the terrific weather, too! Cue sheets, elevation maps and the handbook were very helpful. Restaurant recommendations were terrific – especially Sa Lolla and Su Mallaccioi – good food, fun atmosphere. Accommodations were very nice – what a treat to stay at Portu Maga. Lots of seafood. I was very happy with my bike, even after trading with Sue. The fit was good. The handbook was very interesting and helpful in learning about the culture and history. It was a nice ending to our very fabulous bicycle trip. Thanks again for the well-organized, scenic bike ride.
Dear Arianna and Mauro,
We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday. The bikes were in great condition, the hospitality was faultless and the food and the accommodation excellent. We’re already planning our next trip! Thanks for everything!
You did very well! It was a good trip, especially, thanks to the good weather.
We enjoyed your friendly disposition and wish you well.
Loved the tour. You did a good job. We enjoyed the recommended restaurants. Lots of local color with fresh food.
We just finished a fabulous 6-day-7-night cycling tour around Sardinia with the incomparable Mauro. Our tour began in Alghero where Mauro met with us to fit our bikes, which were very well-maintained with good components. We were supplied with helmets and a free water bottle (having brought our own shoes and pedals) and we had constant van-support every day.
The rides were scenic and enjoyable with plenty of opportunities to stop for a rest, photos or the requisite mid-morning espresso! We cycled along the coast, through rolling hills and some very challenging but rewarding mountain climbs. Everyday was completely different and I felt like I got to see every tucked away part of Sardinia.
The hotels were very good and the dinners included with the tour were fantastic. We got to sample all the best local foods, olive oils, and wine.
Mauro did everything possible to make this the trip of a lifetime for us, no request was too great. He even helped us to learn some Italian while we were there!
I will definitely be touring with Mauro again.
We went on a 6 day, van supported cycling trip starting in Alghero and finishing just outside of Pula. Ranging from 60 to 100 +km/day, the cycling routes were scenic and often challenging, with spectacular ocean to mountain views. There was little vehicle traffic on the routes. Our bicycles were well maintained and good quality (aluminum frame with carbon fork and rear triangle, and components from Shimano 105 to DuraAce). The accommodations were excellent. Our guide, Mauro, lives in Sardinia, and he’s friendly, knowledgable and extremely helpful. His dry sense of humour and comments on the history and details of Sardinia added to the trip. The restaurants chosen by Mauro emphasized Sardinian cooking, be it seafood or a range of proteins, and most of the meals were remarkably good. This was one of the best holidays we’ve ever taken.
Eight of us booked a self-guided bicycle tour with Bike Tour Sardinia. We biked May 6 – 11 in southwest Sardinia, staying at three different hotels. Cue sheets included elevation maps and suggestions for sightseeing and eating along the way. We biked about 40 miles a day; the hills kept it interesting without too much challenge for this Michigan rider. Hotels were great; bikes were very satisfactory. Some of my friends brought their own seats, but I was happy with the seat option on my bike. Mauro was responsive to our group and we had a wonderful tour, seeing Sardinia from quiet, less-traveled roads. I absolutely recommend Bike Tour Sardinia for any bicyclists wanting a self-guided tour.
The four of us traveling together with Mauro and Robert on this bicycle trip kept saying…..it’s the trip of a lifetime. Bike Tour Sardinia is amazing! The customer service was over the top and the accommodations were spectacular. Mauro helped us organize interviews with several centenarians in the small towns throughout our tour…..and Robert was our interpreter. Mauro and his team went above and beyond any expectations for service. The biking was difficult for me, as a novice, but the others seemed to thrive. We were all given everything we needed for a successful biking experience. Mauro arranged special tours to a winery and a pecorino cheese plant (which was the most awesome thing I have every experienced), as well as having cooking demonstrations with the ability to work “hands on” to learn about food from the Sardinia culture. These activities were an important part of the overall balance to this trip. We would HIGHLY recommend Mauro and Bike Tour Sardinia. We hope to return to Italy for another bike tour with this team someday soon.
