For those who love cycling and motorcycling holidays, Sardinia offers a variety of places, views, itineraries and beaches to discover; lots of fun and mixed routes for motorcyclists with a network of comfortable roads that are spectacular for the ones who love to peddle, to appreciate with friends or the family at all levels of ability.
There are over 12,000 km of road suitable for motorbikes on the island, crossing mountains and along the seaside. There are itineraries for all abilities, many of which have drops and bends but with an excellent grip (up to 95%) and the perfect climate conditions almost all year round.
From Pula you can cycle to enchanted places and, following the panoramic road that runs along the sea, discover the magnificent ever-changing beaches, wild dunes and romantic bays.
If you look at the websites specialising in motorcycling tourism, they have recommended paths, such as the itinerary SS125 Orientale Sarda that starts by winding its way up mountains and ends with a gentle slope to the beach towards Muravera, or the Cagliari-Geremeas-Solanas-Villasimius route along the coastal road SP17, entirely made up of panoramic slopes and steep turns overlooking the sea. A route suitable for all abilities and family groups is the one that starts in Pula and leads you to Porto Teulada (38km, SS195) running next to the most beautiful beaches in south west Sardinia; Santa Margherita di Pula, Chia, Tuerredda and many other secret creeks and beaches along the coast until Teulada.
Carrying on from Capo Teulada you can stop at Porto Pino, visit Sant’Antioco, and even take a ferry from Porto Vesme to Carloforte, on the magnificent Island of San Pietro. Following the SS 195 by motorbike in the opposite direction, towards Cagliari, then turning onto the SS 130 towards Decimomannu, direction Iglesias, the coast to coast ride from Pula to the Costa Verde (109 km) is complete! The route initially runs inland then along the Beaches of Fontanamare, by the stacks of Portu Banda and to the formal mine site of Masua, right in front of the small island of Pan di Zucchero. For an alternative east to west route leave the SS 130 turning towards Siliqua and join the SS 293 passing through Giba and Porto Botte, arriving to the Gulf of Palmas and to the island of Sant’Antioco.
