Road Biking Tours on Sardinia

We love guiding group tours, talking about the places we visit, answering your questions with local insight, and fostering a magical group experience. We worry about safety and logistics so you can focus on the riding experience. We do all this to ensure that at the end of your trip rather than saying "goodbye," you say "see you again soon." 

We also enjoy offering self-guided tours that give you the ability to go at your own pace while still taking advantage of the information and local knowledge.

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.

Plus, if you go for a self guided tour, you can take advantage of our luggage delivery service and even share its cost with other travelers.

Epic Sardinia consists of six stages with elevation profiles and routes that highlight all of the capabilities and abilities of a dedicated cyclist. Make no mistake. It’s designed to maximize cycling enthusiasts’ expectations of what top-of-the-line cycling is all about. But when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

And despite not commercially oriented, Epic Sardinia has become a commercial success too. Epic Sardinia takes place in an incredible natural setting featuring long stretches, tough climbs, short and quick ascents, flat roads and false flats as well as long winding descents.

We're often asked by our guests to go cycle on all (or most) top roads of the island. We usually answer that an island with a perimeter of 1850km represents a challenge for those who want to explore it all in a week. After many years, though, we realized that it was time to takle the challenge of putting together a route that includes even not all, at least most of our - and our guests' - favorite roads and areas of Sardinia in a single week of cycling. We've called it 'Ultimate Sardinia'. North to south, and both west and east. Ultimate Sardinia is a challenging tour with long stages and relevant daily elevation and takes you from the northwest of the island (Alghero), to the very south (Pula) in seven unforgettable stages.
Countryside of central Sardinia


Guided tour: € 1629 | Self-Guided: € 939 | Supported tour: € 1399

A stage bicycle tour. Bike the route of Max Leopold Wagner, the noted Sardinia culture connoisseur. On this stage tour in the south of Sardinia, you will discover the history, culture and natural environment that fascinated Max Leopold Wagner. Specialized in Romantic languages, Wagner, a Bavarian, traveled – on a bicycle – to typical Sardinian villages at the beginning of the twentieth century to enhance his knowledge of the idioms of the island specifically and its culture generally.

North Sardinia is often identified with Costa Smeralda. This is wrong. In fact, the touristic development of Costa Smeralda – the billionaire's paradise – added a totally new and non-typical layer of hotels, services and businesses to northeast of Sardinia. While the Gallura area – the region that surrounds Costa Smeralda – is still very authentic and has preserved its old economy and traditions. For this reason, we believe is intriguing to discover both faces of north Sardinia – the contemporary and touristy one as well as the ancient and traditional one.

coastline to Bosa


Guided tour: € 1699 | Self-Guided: € 999 | Supported tour: € 1429

The west coast of Sardinia offers everything that cyclists may desire. In an island where the presence of mass summer tourism is relevant, the west coast, made up of many small tourist resorts, is never affected by the frenzy and traffic typical of seaside resorts. The cities and small towns are actually the tourist resorts, there is almost no concept of an artificial tourist village: the best for us cyclists, who love authenticity and travel experiences. Cycling is a paradise! Every day - and every few kilometers - the landscape changes in the morphology of the reliefs, in the type of vegetation, in its history but also in traditions, food and wine.

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.

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?

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


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.

  • We did a private MTB tour with Andrea to experience the hills above Cagliari - one of the best experiences of our holiday. We are also hiring road bikes from the Baia Sardinia base - such a good way to see the island. Great gear, great people - grazie mille for having us!
  • I’m keeping it short. This is a fantastic place to rent a true rode or gravel bike. They have high end canyon bikes. The staff / super knowledgeable. The entire rental experience was 100 perfect. They work out of a cafe in the front. Just a perfect bike rental shop.
  • I had a great experience with Sardinia Cycling. I couldn't get the bike I wanted in the location I needed, but a drop off and pick up of the bike on my first and last days worked just fine. Meet ups via WhatsApp location sharing were spot on. I wanted to use Sardinia for climbing training, and for me it was just perfect. For the most part great road surfaces, and a range of gradients from long and gentle to short and punchy. I had an Endurace and it was spot on for what I needed. It came with a pump and repair kit, but with graphene reinforced tyres I needed neither.
