    Anyone done around Sardinia?

    Having just done Corsica, I am planning next summer's trip. I intend to ride around the coast. Has anyone done it and can anyone give me some idea of the terrain,etc. Is it as hilly as Corsica?

    Yes, I did Sardinia. It's not as hilly as Corsica, but dang is it arid and hot... be sure to carry plenty of water and snack foods, because I had a difficult time trying to find places to stop for refreshments. It was probably my worst bonk ever.

    Someone recently wrote a book about a bicycle tour around Sardinia, with the title being something like "The Lead Goat Veered Off." It is, or was, available from Amazon.

    Raleigh Aspen touring/off-road hybrid, and a Bob Yak trailer. Yak very useful for us car-free types that like to buy lots of beer.

    Neil Anderson wrote that book about Sardinia (and others), and it a great guy to talk to. I don't know if he is a member of this forum, but I know you can reach him at touring@phred.org
