DISCOVER THE COSTA VERDE COAST AT YOUR OWN PACE
A nice ride discovering the south-west coast of Sardinia: the Costa Verde. Forget the big tourist resorts, this area of Sardinia is still totally intact and keeps the marks of the mining economy, flourishing until a few decades ago. In the second part of the tour, you will ride in the two islands, San Pietro and Sant’Antioco, with their fishing traditions, and on the fabulous South Coast, famous for its beaches. The last evening we’ll be in Cagliari for a shopping session and the celebration dinner.
This guided tour has a support van following all rides carrying water, snacks, and electrolytes to assist your riding. You’ll kick start the week with a welcome meeting and tour explanation. All maps, route notes, and GPS tracks will be provided, allowing you to follow the route at your own pace.
Luggage is transported from each hotel so you only have to focus on the riding. Transfers in and out from Cagliari Airport are included as well as ferry tickets A/R to Carloforte.
