Hotel Parco degli Ulivi

Arrival day

We meet at the hotel, together with the group who started The Mediterrenean Ride in Corsica, meeting in front of a good glass of Vermentino di Gallura DOCG to talk about the week ahead.





Hotel Liberty

Distance 105km
Climb 2000mt

From Arzachena to Pattada

We leave the glamour of the Costa Smeralda to get to Goceano Mountains. The vineyards of Arzachena give way to forests of cork along the ascent to the granite massif of Limbara, which we leave on an exciting descent on the Coghinas lake, here we prepare to challenge the Goceano range, where the village of Pattada awaits us.





Hotel Il Querceto

Distance 85km
Climb 1000mt

From Pattada to Dorgali

We get from Goceano to the Supramonte, passing through Barbagia of Nuoro. The typical cork oak forests of Buddusò together with the mountain pastures of Bitti makes this landscape unique. The Cedrino valley, at the foot of majestic Supramonte, tells us about old stories and ancestral traditions.





Hotel Selene

Distance 95km
Climb 1900mt

From Dorgali to Lanusei

Dorgali is located right at the beginning of the climb to Genna Silana, along an awesome route: the legendary SS125! It is one of the most beautiful roads of Sardinia, 40 exciting kilometers through pure nature, reaching 1000mt a.s.l. at Passo Genna Silana, from where we take a long and beautiful descent to Tortolì. From here we continue to climb to the heart of Ogliastra.





Hotel Omu Axiu

Distance 90km
Climb 2000mt

From Lanusei to Orroli

Today is the King of the mountain! We cross the heart of Ogliastra surrounded by the beauty of this wild nature, here the action of erosion of the river and its tributaries have carved deep valleys creating bizarre rock formations, known as "Tacchi", plateaus rising on high walls of white limestone, which make unique landscapes in this beautiful corner of Sardinia. The canyon that closes the lake Flumendosa anticipates the arrival to the plateau of Orroli, a town symbol of longevity in Sardinia.





Hotel Su Sergenti

Distance 90km
Climb 750mt

From Orroli to Villasimius

After a short stretch on the plateau, dominated by the wonderful megalithic complex of Nuraghe Arrubiu, we go down into the valley of the Flumendosa river ending by the sea in Muravera. The lagoons inhabited by pink flamingos and rare birds, lines the countryside and some of the most generous citrus groves of Sardinia, give way to the charm of the coast and the fabulous beaches of the Marine Park of Capo Carbonara in Villasimius: a real paradise of white sandy beaches and emerald water!





Hotel Italia

Distance 55km
Climb 700mt

From Villasimius to Cagliari

The route from Villasimius to Cagliari is a fun itinerary of continuous up and down in an impressive succession of cliffs and beaches, granite hills and ancient Spanish towers. It will be really difficult to resist the temptation to take a dip in one of the many beaches and crystal water: Porto Sa Ruxi, Solanas, Torre delle Stelle, Geremeas, Mari Pintau, Cala Regina and finally the Poetto, where we take a nice cycling path along the beach until Cagliari port. - To those ending the trip here there is still a nice evening in Cagliari, to stroll through the lively streets of the old town and taste the local specialties in one of the typical Trattorias of the Marina quarter. - For those continuing The Mediterranean Ride in Sicily, we’ll spend the night on the ferry to Palermo.
