CYCLING IN SARDINIA

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

First half hour of the third day - as we descended the ca. 500m that we had had to climb up the previous afternon, down a beautifully engineered mountain road back to seal level! Several swims in the Mediterranean and the splendid picnics organised by our leader and his assistant.

What did you think of your group leader?

Excellent and that applies both to Lieven Loots and to Marco, his Sardinian assistant.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't underestimate the amount of uphill cycling needed - but if I (aged 74) could do it so can you!
