The Green Coast and Cagliari

A nice ride discovering the south west coast of Sardinia: the Costa Verde. Forget the big tourist resorts, this area of Sardinia is still totally intact and keeps the marks of the mining economy, flourishing until a few decades ago. In the second part of the tour we will ride in the two islands, San Pietro and Sant'Antioco, with their fishing traditions, and in the fabulous South Coast, famous for its beaches. The last evening we'll be in Cagliari for a shopping session and the celebration dinner.

Abbiamo noleggiato le bici per esplorare il Parco di Molentargius e la spiaggia del Poetto ed è stato molto comodo perché si trova direttamente sulla ciclabile. La persona è stata molto seria e disponibile e ci ha fatto trovare le bici già pronte alla mattina dopo aver fatto la prenotazione sul sito. Ci ha fornito inoltre tutte le informazioni necessarie. Ottima esperienza a prezzi ragionevoli. Consigliato.

Grazie per la bella bicicletta elettrica. Sono stata a Cagliari per una settimana. In parte grazie alla bella moto, ho trascorso una settimana fantastica. Ho pedalato molti chilometri e quindi ho visto molto. Il percorso lungo la spiaggia era perfetto per il ciclismo e anche il percorso dalla spiaggia alla città. Buon servizio ed è bello poter usare la bici per qualche ora in più!

Marco e il team hanno un ottimo affare assicurandoti di ottenere la bici di cui hai bisogno e adattarla alle tue specifiche.

Le bici sono in condizioni meccaniche incredibili e, in caso di problemi, ti verranno forniti strumenti per bici, toppe e tubi extra. Oh, e le borse laterali sono un'ottima aggiunta e valgono il costo. Saluti al Grand Tour della Sardegna!

Tour "Expedition Across Sardinia" molto ben organizzato e gestito.Itinerario molto interessante e vario sia per il percorso che per i paesaggi che consentiva anche delle interessanti deviazioni lungo il percorso.Le bici a noleggio erano perfette e le tracce gps, con relativo software, era precisissimo e ricco di informazioni.Strutture ricettive molto belle. Segnaliamo Agriturismo Sa Tanchitta... Posto particolare e tranquillo con una cena veramente squisita. Ottima anche la cena dell'hotel Edera.Unica critica la struttura Omu Axiu che ha visto tempi decisamente migliori.

Noleggiato una c-sport Bianchi per un tour autonomo da Cagliaro ad Alghero (presa a Cagliari e riconsegnata comodamente ad Alghero). La bici, conseganta con tutti gli acessori necessari (luci, kit completo di riparazione, lucchetto,...) si è dimostrata perfetta in tutto il viaggio. Un ringraziamento particolare allo staff del noleggio di Cagliari che sempre prontamente mi ha supportato con grande professionalità con consigli pratici e itinerari, sia prima che durante il tour. L'avere loro risposte precise e immediate è stato sicuramente un ottimo supporto al viaggio. Se la costa occidentale della Sardegna certamente si presta a questo tipo di esperienza, questo tipo di professionalità la rende indimenticabile. Grazie di tutto.. Irene

Complimenti a questi ragazzi per avermi fatto gustare un angolo della mia terra che ancora non conoscevo.Genuini e diretto rappresentanti del territorio, mi hanno guidato alla scoperta di un antico sentiero da cui poter ammirare alcune spiagge nellazona di Chia, oltre il punto a cui sono sempre arrivato.Pranzo al sacco in compagnia di amici con una loro storia da raccontare e la nostra storia da ascoltare.Non vedo l'ora di provare un nuovo itinerario.
