Join the CycloWorld Travel Series to the Giro Sardegna in 2023 and you only have to worry about the cycling itself! Discover the beautiful Italian island of Sardinia and ride carefree for 6 days in enchanting surroundings!

The atmosphere throughout the event is Mediterranean: extremely relaxed, in other words. In the evening, the prize-giving ceremony is a party. Every year there are also some ex-pros at the start. Expected are: Max Lelli, Andrea Tafi and Fabio Aru. And who knows, maybe there will be more.

The area of the 2023 edition will focus mainly on a south-eastern part of island: Muravera. From here all the stages will depart. A perfect location, close to the port/airport and capital Cagliari. This area has great hotels, a beautiful sea; different and differentiated routes and very little traffic on the roads!

Pleasant climate

The climate on the island of Sardinia is subtropical, that is, the winters are mild and the summers can be very hot. In the middle of the island there are also mountains with peaks around 1800m. There are several winds that affect the island such as in particular the mistral from the northwest and the scirocco from the southeast.

It will be another real Giro Sardegna with many cyclists, which is why there are also two 4-star locations for the participants.

Anyone can participate, you really don't have to be a semi-pro or serious amateur runner. The event is suitable for anyone who has an average or good condition. The accommodation and facilities are top, the environment is great!
