What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The trip was filled with inspirational moments ~ succeeding in a long ascent ... or not succeeding! But feeling the rush of adrenaline with all the challenges and especially the thrill of descent.
What did you think of your group leader?
Michele and Giovanni ~ what can I say? Charming, funny, friendly, warm, caring. They looked after everyone of us with such genuine warmth and seemed to know exactly what was necessary. They asked for our opinion, they provided suggestion, they made sure that we were always having fun! They even gave me permission to give in and take the van for a final stretch that was just beyond my readiness. These 2 men were simply wonderful.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Days 3 and 4 were challenging for me ~ I had not cycled the heights before. But I am so glad that I challenged myself to do what I could. Bring your bathing suit ~ the Mediterranean is crystal clear, the bluest blue and the most refreshing way to restore your energy mid-way through each day's cycle.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Sardinia is a beautiful area to explore ~ so much of it completely unspoiled. The tour was excellent in every way.
