We just finished a fabulous 6-day-7-night cycling tour around Sardinia with the incomparable Mauro. Our tour began in Alghero where Mauro met with us to fit our bikes, which were very well-maintained with good components. We were supplied with helmets and a free water bottle (having brought our own shoes and pedals) and we had constant van-support every day.
The rides were scenic and enjoyable with plenty of opportunities to stop for a rest, photos or the requisite mid-morning espresso! We cycled along the coast, through rolling hills and some very challenging but rewarding mountain climbs. Everyday was completely different and I felt like I got to see every tucked away part of Sardinia.
The hotels were very good and the dinners included with the tour were fantastic. We got to sample all the best local foods, olive oils, and wine.
Mauro did everything possible to make this the trip of a lifetime for us, no request was too great. He even helped us to learn some Italian while we were there!
I will definitely be touring with Maruo again.
