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 provided in our extensive tour documentation.

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.

THE EPIC SARDINIA

Guided tour: € 1479| Self-Guided: € 999 | Supported tour: € 1227

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. Epic Sardinia was designed with no regard to commercial aspects. The only focus was on putting together only the nicest, wildest most special roads: those we love most. The result was... Epic. 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. The 2021 edition starts in Cagliari and finishes at the beautiful beach at Santa Maria Navarrese.

This is the tour for you who love acquainting yourselves with history, culture and traditions.

ULTIMATE SARDINIA

GUIDED TOUR: € 1636 | SELF-GUIDED: € 999 | Supported tour: € 1410
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.

THE MAX LEOPOLD WAGNER TOUR

Guided tour: € 1669 | Self-Guided: € 899 | Supported tour: € 1365

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.

THE GALLURA SHORT BREAK

Self-guided: € 680 | Supported tour: € 1099
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.

WEST COAST OF SARDINIA BIKING TOUR

Guided tour: € 1650 | Self-Guided: € 949 | Supported tour: € 1399

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.

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.
