CYCLING IN SARDINIA
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
For me, Day 3 which was challenging with the hills but just so beautiful that I was distracted from the burning thighs! Michele the leader was fantastic at encouraging us forward through the rain- the only day it rained but was a great day and ended at a fantastic hotel and view. Day 6 was cycling mostly along the southern coast and again was a beautiful cycle with a great beach and made for some great photos of the Sardinian coast.
What did you think of your group leader?
Alessandro and Michele were both great, the tour was well organised and the fruit and snacks they had for us on some days was a brilliant idea. Michele was an exceptional leader as he was excellent at checking on us at the back of the group and had a great sense of humour with a very caring nature. He should be voted one of the top tour leaders as he really is a fantastic guide. We may do the dolomites next year if he is leading it.....Thank You guys for a great trip
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Try a cycling tour, if you have not done one before. They are really great fun and you get a great sense of achievement. I would recommend doing some hill training before you go and if you have a reasonable level of fitness you can do it. My mum is 67 and she managed this tour and loved it, with some summer training before. I do hope to be doing the same when I am her age. Go for it if you are fit and have a bike to practice before......It is the only way to travel
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Excellent tour and guides again, the hotels were all clean and fine, the cycling was great. I was a little dissapointed in the food in Sardinia not as good as we have had in other parts of Italy but of course there is plenty of it and as you are cycling, you can have pizza and pasta!!!!!
