My first experience in Sardinia along with Sardinians mates (Mountain Biking Tour 17-23 February 2020) : Before I get into the details, I want to say that our weekly mountain biking trip in Sardinia was one of the most pleasant bike adventures of all. Not only the countryside was wild and beautiful, but all the Sardinians mates we have met were immensely friendly and helpful, from shop owners, restaurant workers, and even fellow local tourists we met along the way.
But there were two people that I would like to single out who have become our friends during their time spent in guiding and supporting us.
Mr. Wanny Scarpa, the owner of Biking Sardinia ( https://bikingsardinia.com/ ). His company supplied the electric-assisted Mountain Bikes that we rented for the trip. They were in extremely good condition and very modern. Wanny says that he sells off older bikes and get some new ones every year and the bikes we used ranged from only about two years old to brand new. Besides the quality of the bikes, Wanny also provided support with his various vans so that we were able to ride in different areas of Sardinia. His love of biking was contagious as he personally guided us on the ride in Alghero area.
Mr. Francesco Mura, the owner of Bella Biking ( https://bellabiking.com/en/ ) was our eMTB guide for the first two days. He was not only knowledgeable about the trails and all the highlight points, but he also understood each of our riding abilities and adjusted our routes so that we all could enjoy them equally. He even arranged an amazing lunch at a local hangout for hikers that had both amazing views and traditional Sardinian food that, without his help, we would never had a chance to try.
Both Wanny and Francesco also gave us many tips about other things to do on our free time apart from biking. Thank to their recommendation, we got to witness the Sartiglia Festival ( https://www.sartiglia.info/en ).
If you are looking to explore Sardinia by bikes (especially with the amazing electric-assisted Mountain Bike) I strongly suggest to reach out to either Wanny or Francesco for an unforgettable biking holiday!
