A ride on Sardinia

Route 25: A ride on Sardinia

Where do Italian motorcycle testers go for their biking holidays? Sardinia, apparently…

I’ve done a few bike launches on Sardinia and it always impressed me. I though I’d just been shown the good bits. No: apparently, it’s all good. Whenever I asked any Italian bike tester to reveal the best place to ride a motorcycle in Italy, they always gave the same answer: Sardinia. Some liked the east coast best, some the west, some preferred the centre, some the north…

With a bit more badgering this three-day route came together based around taking the ferry to and from the port of Olbia in the north-east of the island. You can get a ferry there from Livorno, Savona, Genoa or Civitavecchia. Or Corsica. Or Sicily. Hmmm…

Please note: This page contains the route files for The RiDE Guide To Italy which came free with RiDE magazine in July 2015. These website page are not regularly updated, so please check all critical information before you travel. All route files are in .gpx format. Garmin and BMW users can download the main file, which contains all the routes and our recommended hotels as separate waypoints. TomTom users can download the individual routes and use the Tyre software to convert them. For many routes we also have Google Map links. However, as Google Maps will not plot routes over seasonally closed high Alpine passes (such as Stelvio) when they’re shut, these may not work for every route all year round.
