Super cycling in Sardinia
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Too many to pick one.... Michele getting up at 6am to take me up and down extra hills. Left in moonlight, returned at sun up for breakfast, shower and another idyllic day on the bike - and Strava records. Brand New! Giovanni taking time out from his private time to show us round his home city - Chapeau. Both helping me when I lost my mobile. Together they managed to get it returned - intact! Watching 16 strangers become friends. I would (almost) share my last Rolo with them!
What did you think of your group leader?
Michele and Giovanni were the dream team. By swapping driving and cycling each day no-one got tired of the company and we were treated to different perspectives and interests. Their choice of dining spots were excellent and how they managed to keep control of us after so much wine is a gift!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Its cooler than you think at night/morning. It was windy - and that can be demoralising so be ready. The bikes are excellent but cycle shorts are a great help. Diet before you arrive because you will eat and drink like royalty.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Can't wait for trip number 5!
