70 rides in the south and centre
Peter Herold, Amos Cardia, Davide Deidda
Prezzo di copertina 29,50
A selection of 70 routes to ride throughout the year, that will take you to most of the island and offer you a surprising variety of landscapes and experiences among the perfumes of the Mediterranean macchia, the harsh limestone of the interior and the splendid beaches you’ll admire in the background.
You will discover an unspoilt island and ride on centuries-old singletracks, where famous bandits or hard-working miners and charcoal burners used to pass, and which today will delight the most demanding riders or satisfy the the curiosity of cycle tourists on their first MTB rides.
A complete guide to help you organise your biking holiday in Sardinia and for all the summer visitors to the island who want to ride their mountain bikes while they’re on holiday.

Peter Herold, English-born (1964) but Sard by adoption, proposed this guide to the MTB in Sardinia to Versante Sud. He lives in Lotzorai on the island’s east coast where he and his wife Anne manage the guesthouse The Lemon House , a reference point for bikers, walkers and climbers. Peter has contributed to several guidebooks on Sardinia, both to explain the island to those arriving from overseas (Italians as well as foreigners) and using his detailed knowledge of the area where he lives.
Amos Cardia was born in Cagliari in 1975 and lives in Sinnai (CA). An expert in the field of culture, MTB guide and teacher, he is author of 15 publications on Sardinia. Amos works with IchnusaBike (www.ichnusabike.it), a cycle touring and MTB holiday company, and in 2005 promoted the TranSardinia, the crossing of Sardinia by mountain bike from Olbia to Cagliari in 7 stages, for a total of 450 km e 11.000 metres’ height gain. A few years later he thought up and developed the TranSardinia West, another crossing from north to south but this time down the west coast, from Alghero to Pula, 450 km as well but with 8.000 metres’ height gain (www.transardinia.it ). His personal web site is www.amoscardia.com .
Davide Deidda, is an engineer, born in Lanusei but who grew up in Nuorese where his parents live, After a long period in Spain where he raced on his mountain bike he helped Peter documenting rides in Ogliastra and then dedicated himself to the exploration of the Centre of Sardinia and in particular of the Supramonte. A lover of long rides and “impossible” paths, which he thinks shouldn’t be just for walkers and which he stubbornly tries to ride.
