Sardinia offers good cycling and trekking weather 365 days a year
We know that nowadays weather forecasting is somewhat difficult. Temperatures change quite often and suddenly. But Sardinia offers, without doubt, some of the best weather in the world for road biking, mountain biking and trekking – and in wonderful countryside to boot.Even during the coldest months, January and February, the weather can surprisingly offer spring-like days, days ideal for living out your passion for getting out on two wheels. Until the beginning of June, temperatures don’t exceed 25° C or about 75° F. Statistically, the highest temperatures are during the summer, when they can reach a high of 40° C or around 100° F. But it is always possible to enjoy our tours during the coolest hours of the day.
A paradise for those who love active holidays in beautiful natural surroundingsSardinia is sparsely populated. The average population density is 67 inhabitants per square kilometer. This suggests that there are a lot of areas to be conquered by biking or trekking, both near the coast and inland. The main north/south highway in Sardinia is the SS 131, and it’s off limits for cycling. On the other hand, the suitability of the roads on which our tours take place is tested by our staff centimeter by centimeter. And, you can be sure that they will take you to the unknown Sardinia, far from the chaos of the big cities.
The terrain in Sardinia is variable, sometimes somewhat flat but always a certain number of hills. What goes up always goes down as well. The quality of the asphalt is on an average good, and motorists in Italy are very courteous and conscious of cyclists.
