    All about the Nuragic Vein.

    This 5-days long e-MTB tour starts from tame country of the region Baronia, moving to the thick oak forests in Barbagia and up high to the high rocky mountains of Supramonte. Setting off from our shop in Sos Alinos the first day runs on gentle granite hills, following paths marked only by the grazing of sheep flocks, ending under the massive rock mountains in Oliena.The tour continues on ancient charcoal-burners tracks, within the thick oak forests that separate Oliena from Orgosolo, renowned hideout of many a bandit and land of thousand legends. Moving away from the high crags of Supramonte the day enters the Gennargentu area and ends in Fonni, the highest town in Sardinia.The mountains and peaks of the Gennargentu massif make up the background of this third day. Pedalling through forests, expanses of mediterranean vegetation and vast screes it reaches the isolated Nuraghe Ruinas, from where the look can stretch across the whole Ogliastra region.From the banks of the high lake Flumendosa the tour resumes in the direction of the Supramonte area above Urzulei. Passing on solitary and unsoiled lands, on a string of breathtaking sceneries, it ends at the pass Genna Silana, overlooking the entrance of the famous canyon Gorroppu.The last leg of the tour moves back to the sea, on two alternative options. The first one takes on some steep tracks to the famous beach Cala Luna, returning to Orosei via boat and ending the day on flat roads. The second option instead runs on the crest of mountains above Cala Gonone, through the primary oak forests and down to Cala Gonone, following the sea on side streets and quiet pine woods, up north till Sos AlinosImportant notesIn order to enjoy this tour you must be on good physical shape. The electric assistance of the e-bikes must be used wisely, mostly on minimum level, in order not to drain the battery before the end of the day. It is suitable to whoever is comfortable cycling with a traditional MTB for at least 30km with 500m of vertical gain, for 5 consecutive days.Off road tracks are of medium difficulty, with some short sections on unsteady rocks. Anyhow it is requested a good command of off-road bikes.
