Description

The goal will not be the destination, but the journey! In this 3-day E-Bike Tour, we will take you to discover one of the most popular panoramic roads in Sardinia, chasing the coast and the sunset.

From Alghero to Bosa, also nominated as a UNESCO heritage site, the Road 105 is 50 km of pure poetry. Riding with your bike through its sinuous curves, it will almost seem that it was built specifically for your two wheels. You'll slide on the asphalt, elegantly following the course of the landscape and its cliffs, along an infinite blue panorama, where the Mediterranean scrub alternates with fascinating wild coves to be loved.

Itinerary

Starting from our headquarters at Biking Sardinia in Via Garibaldi 87, we take the cycle path for about 5km along the coastal road that connects Alghero to Fertillia. Immediately after, our first off-road trail starts. This trail is a fire road that will help you get a little familiar with the bicycle, a preparatory activity to get to a wonderful single track inside the Pine forest of Arenosu. At the end of the path we find the characteristic Nuragic complex Palmavera where, if you want to, we can arrange a visit to the site. Immediately after we start our first climb with a panoramic view of the Baja di Conte whilst passing by some of the old WW2 Artillery positions and fortifications that to this day lay in ruins. After a short tutorial on how to oparate the bike during decent, we will face the first negative difference in height of the day. For those who are not practical do not worry ...There are alternative trails and unpaved service roads to get you down the mountain safely. After a few minutes we will be in the beautiful pine forest of Mugoni, here we will cross some of the most evocative coves, to get to the entrance of Punta Giglio, a naturalistic area that is part of the Porto Conte Regional Park area. The beauty of this promontory will leave you breathless, it is among the most enchanting places not only of the Sardinian North-West but of the whole island.

Sardinia enjoys plenty of hot sunshine and blue skies throughout the year, especially during the summer months with temperatures sometimes going up to as high as 40 degrees centigrade. There is very low rainfall per , and the sun usually arrives in April and extends into October. Spring and autumn are an ideal time for exploring the richness of Sardinia’s wilderness when the temperatures tend to hover around the low to mid 20 degrees centigrade. At the beginning and end of the season(in March and late October) the weather can be a little less predictable and there could be some cooler days. Please check with our team as to how the trip might be affected at this time, as this can differ from year to year.

As part of your Experience, we create guide and itinerary content that will be made available offline to our guests for the duration of their tour.

Sardinia is a cyclists paradise, with excellent quality tarmac, wide roads, few cars and low urbanisation. You will be enchanted by the gradual undulating roads along the coast, passing watch towers, high cliffs and descending to long sandy beaches. As you leave the coast to ride towards the interior, the terrain becomes more mountainous, with longer gradual climbs, alternating with smooth flowing descents. Very short sections leading to the accommodation could be on gravel roads.
