Seven days of emotions.
Transardinia Day 1.
78 kilometers from Olbia to Mamone.
The Transardinia itinerary leaves the busy Costa Smeralda climbing on the trail that pilgrims today still use to reach the Sanctuary of St Paul of Monti. It continues on shepherd's trails used until few years ago to move the herds from plains to mountains. Then crosses the vast and quiet plateau of Alà Dei Sardi, there you will enjoy a boundless panorama. A beautiful double track trail cuts through an oak forest, passing near ruins of old farm-houses called "stazzi", alternating soft climbs and descents, then gets to the top of a mountain called "Punta Sa Donna" beyond which is Mamone. There lies the fantastic "agriturismo Ertila", 1000 meters high, facing the limestone mountains of Montalbo of Lula. Finally, It is time to get off the mountain bikes and enjoy the good food and the unique atmosphere, always provided by the owner Pigotzi.
