This part of Italy is one of the finest in the country for combining great scenery, undemanding cycling through the rolling hills and wonderful small historic towns such as Martina Franca, Ostuni or Lecce. The warm hospitality of the locals, great food and wine and stunning coastlines are added features for a great cycling experience.
Sardinia is still the “uncut” diamond among the Mediterranean islands. Very sparsely populated, it features some breathtaking scenery with low impact car traffic, ideal for cycling on the island’s back-roads . Bosa and Alghero are beautiful historic towns, the Sardi people are overwhelmingly hospitable and their food delicious + very authentic. Cycling on Sardinia is perfect for combining these experiences with stops on some of the many great beaches with turquoise waters unique to this part of the Mediterranean.
