The tour starts among the historical buildings of the ancient city of Alghero, on the cobble of the narrow, typical streets.

After having left Alghero, this beautiful, aragonese little town on the coral coast,  the spectacular itinerary starts along the steep coast. Following ups and downs we reach the medieval town Bosa, the only one with a navigable river. Bosa is well known for its excellent wine, the embroideries, the filigrane jewellery and the remains of the ancient tanneries.

The next stage is a little bit longer, but not too difficult. We will find the more demanding slopes on the first 20 km of the itinerary. The remaining is mostly flat. From the mediaeval Bosa we will reach a pearl on the West coast, the past fisher village San Salvatore (Santu Srabadoi in local dialect), a typical example of a temporary, religious centre in Sardinia.

Then a stage with a medium distance, but easy, as more than 50km are flat. At the beginning we bike along the craggy coast and the glance goes until the sea with its numerous lagoons situated in this area. 

The route rises slowly, while we approach the village of Guspini. Then the slopes become more demanding and we proceed into the past mine area. We cross also Arbus and following a marvellous mountain route, we descent again towards the sea close to  Nebida We suggest you to save your energy during the first part of this stage for the central part, made of steep slopes.

Today we bike along the sea, but from time to time we go into the inland. The total altitude of this stage is medium-low and will be almost reached after a short route of 12 km. Then the road starts with a partly very high slope, until 15%. For that, this track will present us during the descent a unique and unforgettable coast view on the white cliffs and the rock of the Pan di Zucchero.

The sequence of ups and downs identifies these 75 km. The peculiarity of this stage is the coast part we travel along, particularly from the port of Teulada until Chia. This road is known to be one of the most beautiful in the world and was used by film directors  for the scenes and photographers of well known magazines. A part where we can dip into the different blue nuances of the sea, the uncountable bays and the Aragonese towers.
