The most coveted six-stage tour on roads we will never tire of!
What happens when a passionate cyclist and lover of his paradise island, whose best routes he knows and loves to ride, plans the 6-stage route he would never tire of riding? And what happens when the Sardinia Cycling team adds to all this the best local accommodations and Pro Tour level service?
Simple: you get the Epic Sardinia 2023!
Epic Sardinia consists of six stages with elevation profiles and routes for the most demanding cyclists. Make no mistake. It is designed to maximally meet cycling enthusiasts' expectations of what top-level cycling is all about. Epic Sardinia was not designed without regard to commercial needs. The goal is to put together only the most beautiful, wildest and most special roads-the ones we love the most.
And because it is designed to praise and reward dedicated cyclists, Epic Sardinia is, since 10 years, also a commercial success. Epic Sardinia takes place in incredible natural scenery, with long stretches, challenging climbs, short punchy climbs, flat roads and false flats, and long twisty descents.
The 2023 edition starts in Arbatax and ends in the beautiful beach of Chia. At the end of the trip, the beautiful Sardinian mountains of Gennargentu will be skirted, the wild Barbagia will be crossed, and the beautiful southwestern coast will be covered.
Epic Sardinia is a fully assisted stage tour: our support vehicles escort all of the stages, with drinks, bars and gels and, of course, water. Mechanical assistance and spare wheels are guaranteed from the very first to the last kilometer of each stage. The only difference from a Pro-Tour race is that Epic Sardinia is not a race: ride at the pace that best suits you, our team will be always nearby! We take pride in ensuring the entire group safely reaches the destination together each day. There are coffee and food stops planned and there's always the possibility of jumping in the van to shorten a ride, if needed.
And as a little extra, a photographer follows the group taking shots of the cyclists and of the memorable views that’ll prove you completed the tour. Is there a group especially for women? No, but women generally represent about half of the riders. We believe that comradery contributes to the magic of cycling! And that's why the Epic is so – Epic.
Sardinia is a region known for mild Mediterranean weather. It generally features warm, dry weather which makes these rides particularly enjoyable. The spring and fall can see the highs range from the 18s to 25s (Celsius), while the lows are generally between 14 and 18. Summer highs are generally between 28 and 25. We always recommend bringing along riding layers and even a bit of rain (might happen in Spring and Fall) gear so you can keep riding comfortably throughout the day.
Sardinia Cycling arranges group transfers from and to the closest airport for the trip: Cagliari. Individual transfers can be also planned and the cost might depend from the departure or arrival location, from the transfer time and it can also be influenced by the presence of bulky luggage, like a bike case. Other transport option is public transport. About this last opportunity, we suggest you using Google Maps and select 'public transport' from and to your selected destination. In any case, we're ready to help you selecting the quicker, smoother and most cost effective solution.
Sometimes your trip on Sardinia simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in our lovely island either before or after your trip, and need assistance making those plans, we're available help. Self guided and supported trips can be extended too and that can happen in any intermediate location along the itinerary: we can help selecting the best one!
One thing riders learn soon is that Sardinia is hilly. The terrain is varied, with gradual and short, or very long and progressive climbs throughout the week. Epic Sardinia is best suited for our 'Challenge' riders. The routes have been designed to avoid busy roadways, that are very rare in a large a scantly populated island. However, very little urban riding and short sections of busy roads are unavoidable in Sardinia.
