Mountain Biking Tours on Sardinia

Mountain biking tours have long focused on crossing a region by linking up sections of dirt rather than searching out the best trails in a given area. This falsely assumes moutain bikers care more about the destination than the journey.

But, as mountain bikers, we decided to take a different path:  we have designed our MTB tours ensuring the that each leg is enjoyable and memorable on its own. The end result is mountain biking tours leave lasting impressions and are once in a lifetime experiences.

Our tours are offered on specific dates each season as a guided group tour or on your own time frame as a self guided tour. Plus, if you go for a self guided tour, you can take advantage of the luggage delivery service and even share its cost with other travelers.

 

Sardinia Cycling charted the way in many different fields, including when it comes to making your trip on Sardinia smooth and safe: with the Sardinia Cycling App you get the whole trip in the palm of your hands.

If you have booked a tour with us our App will gain access to the all the information regarding your tour as well as all the documentation for your trip. No need of having a phone on the handlebar: the app will send you a push notification when near to a must-see attraction along the way.

Countryside of central Sardinia

THE OGLIASTRA CROSS

Self-Guided: € 925

The wild and the beautiful!

Ogliastra Cross is a mountain biking tour that takes place in the east of Sardinia. It's a biking adventure that will stick in the mind of mountain bikers. Nothing like this is available on any other island in the Mediterranean, and certainly not in Europe or in the central Alps. It starts from the Gulf of Arbatax through the mountainous regions of central Sardinia, touches the granite massif of Gennargentu and arid plateaus of Supramonte, before descending through canyons carved out of the limestone rocks, down to the sea in the central east coast, with its beautiful caves, white sandy beaches and turquoise sea.

GENNARGENTU OFF-ROAD TRAVERSE

Guided tour: € 1389 | Self-guided: € 965

The Sardinia Off-Road Traverse is guided or self-guided tour, which starts at sea level at Barisardo on the eastern coastline, in the Ogliastra subregion. From there, in a six-stages itinerary, it climbs to the top of Mount Bruncu Spina at 1829 m – the highest peak that can be climbed on a mountain bike on Sardinia, and from there goes back to the sea. The trip explores the biggest and most famous mountain range in the island: Gennargentu, synomimous with mountain for us Sardinians, a unique place on earth. With the lowest population density in Europe, it makes for a magic place for mountain bikers who want to feel the emotion of discovery, and the thrill of riding in open spaces, far away from civilization.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's your usual support level on guided tours?

We have a strict rule since from the very beginning of our adventure: a six to one ratio, which means a riding guide every each 6 riders. Plus, a van that can keep about half riders. The van contains a mobile workshop, spare wheels, spare bikes (the number is chosen depending on the required sizes). We provide a quick lunch on the go (sandwiches, pies, juices, fruit) as well as bevareages. We have gels bars and electrolyes available on purchase. The van is constantly connected to the guide(s).

How do I prepare myself?

Our tours are suited to riders of different capabilities and fitness. For every trip you'll find the estimated fitness level (Recreational, Enthusiast, Challenge). Should you have doubt in the interpretation of that when selecting a tour, the best thing to do is getting in touch with our very experienced staff who'll be happy to help you assess if the tour you've in mind is suitable for you. As an approach, we do not sell a tour if we're not sure you won't enjoy it.

Where do your clients come from?

Many guests find it hilarious, but less than 1% of our guests are from Italy and despite we're proudly Italians, we mostly speak English at work. Our guests are mostly from the US, Canada, Australia, UK and Switzerland. We pride to have a huge repeaters' rate.

How long have you guys been doing this?

Italy-Cycling is not new. Is instead the Italian branch of the head company based in Sardinia and called SardiniaCycling. The head company has started as a family business and it still is, even a pretty evolved one. We’re not afraid to say that we became - through hard work and passion - a leading cycling tour company in Italy. Since 2008 we specialize in arranging unforgettable cycling tours and holidays, accommodating cyclists from all around the world in our paradise island.

Do your guides speak English?

Of course they do. Depending on guest's nationality, on the Country touched by the itinerary as well as on the specific trip level, we choose guides that beside English can speak other languages, like French or German.

Do you offer self-guided tours?

Of course we do. Most tours in our catalog have a self-guided variant. Self-guided tours depart anytime in the season and have a specific pricing that is indicated in the travel page. Services related to guided and self guided tours are listed in all the tour description pages.

What do I get if I reserve a self-guided tour?

Guests on our self-guided tours get an extensive information pack, detailed maps, road book and a GPS with loaded tracks. While on site, we arrange a briefing and we fit the bikes. Our staff are always available to help you wherever and at any time. Our network of offices allows prompt response and immediate action from our own skilled staff. So far, none of our guests have lost a single day of their tour. And its up to us to see that they never will.

Do you offer luggage transfer on your self-guided tours? How does it work?

Yes, sure. And it works in a very smooth way. You'll be asked to leave your labeled bags at the hotel reception every morning by 9.30 am. You'll find bags at the next hotel before 2 pm.

WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT US

Self Guided tour on Sardinia

What a great tour put together by the team at Sardinia Cycling. Australia is a long way from Sardinia - but it was worth the trip! The accommodation and food put together for the tour was fantastic. The logistics worked perfectly with luggage magically appearing...

S.P. Clark, Melbourne, Australia

Outstanding!

I have been doing cycling tours for almost 20 years in Europe. This is our first trip using a professional company and we could not be happier with the service, bikes, routes and overall trip. Hotels were good to very good overall. Food was excellent. Bikes were high end Canyon, many of which had Di2 electronic shifting.

Jeff, flycycletravel, New York City, New York

  • Awesome bike! The workshop staff has deep knowledge and experience. Which I unfortunately did not use to full extent (route planning!!). The service was A+! Super nice and friendly. I’d immediately recommend to anyone close to me to rent their bikes here.
  • Perfect service. I rented a road bike for 3 days and found everything to be perfectly prepared: fantastic Canyon bike, helmet, pedals, spare tire. The bike was adjusted in a few minutes and I was ready to go. Communication to reserve the bike online as well as takeover and return were super easy. And the bike was just perfect. I will rent again in a few days in the North.
  • - The bike was GREAT (gears worked smoothly, brakes and tyres survived the Monte Alba descent perfectly) - Both Andrea and Andrew were super NICE, friendly and helpful in the bike delivery and pickup - The whole offer and invoicing process was super TRANSPARENT and FAST Thanks to all of you - you saved my holidays from a biking perspective!
