Cycle Sardinia in October/November
The best time to Cycle Sardinia is October/November to experience the freedom of the roads, coast and countryside, warm sunshine and fantastic views that Sardinia has to offer and see more of this beautiful island.
Cycling is environmentally friendly, good for fitness and enables you to get a real taste and feel of the island, to meet the local people, stay in family run accommodation and to get off the beaten track and experience the real Sardinia by bike...
Just Sardinia can offer a choice of 4 self guided tours and can tailor make other itineraries to suit you, your family or your party’s requirements. A typical tour will include airport transfers, custom made tour bike, all equipment needed (excluding bicycle helmets which you can rent if you don’t bring your own), route guide and maps, accommodation in personally chosen hotels and agriturismi on a B&B basis and transfer of your luggage between your accommodation.
For adventurous families, this is a great holiday for October half term:
Alghero-Bosa-Alghero ‘The Coral Coast Cruiser’ Cycle Tour: Ride the Catalan ramparts of Alghero up to the trachyte spurs of Monte Minerva rising above Lake Temo, down towards the sea, along the river valley, through the wild kingdom of the griffon vulture as far as the Medieval town of Bosa, staying in small family-run 3* hotels and country lodges with excellent regional cuisine.
