Take a bike tour of Sardinia, one of the most captivating islands in the world! I am delighted to introduce you to Sardinian photographer Alessandro Carboni, who poetically brings his native island alive with his stunning photos.
Ciclismo Classico guide Simone Scalas defines himself as a curious person who most enjoys life when he has the opportunity to discover something new, from an unfamiliar author to an unexpected sunset. Simone lives in the seaside village of Pula in southwestern Sardinia, about half an hour from the island’s main city, Cagliari.

I am frequently asked “What is your favorite place to bike?” I am hard pressed to come up with a venue I enjoyed more than Corsica. It epitomizes the Mediterranean region. Although it is now part of France, it represents a fusion of French, Italian and Corsican cultures, history, languages, terrain, cuisine and love of cycling.
This is part 4 of our Staff Picks blog series! Here we outline the tours our US staff members have been on, what they liked most, and tours they hope to go on. I joined Ciclismo in 2007 while I was living the adventure travelers dream. In 2010 I relocated to southern California because I could experience my love of hiking and biking year round.
