In the Sinis Land
The Sinis-Montiferru area is an area particularly suitable for the practice of mountain biking both for tourism and for sporting-competitive sports. The natural environment in which our itineraries are inserted, its integrity, its wild aspect, the numerous historical vestiges that meet along the various paths, give the excursion a character as well as a sport of real discovery. The long beaches, the large dirt roads, the long cliffs overlooking the sea, the large lake oases allow you to make long and interesting excursions thanks to the little difference in height along the coast. On the contrary, the nearby mountainous massifs of Montiferru and Monte Arci with their wooded slopes allow the most expert and demanding to make exciting rides.
These are some examples of itineraries that we offer:
