After the centre of Montevecchio, once the most important mining village of the Sulcis area, enjoy the truly spectacular single track descent along the Rio Irvi. You will cross it 18 times before arriving to the sea! Relax along the magnificent Costa Verde, the Green coast, so named after the colour of its waters. Time for some climbing now: the unique profile of Monte Arcuentu soon comes into view and will take you back to the agriturismo.
3rd day: Montevecchio – Fighezia (41 km, climb 750mt)
Ride another breathtaking single track down to one of the fascinating Piscinas beach with its sand dunes over 50m high. Riding along old mining tracks, you reach the amazing golden beach of Scivu (rest highly suggested!). Your base tonight is a charming agriturismo, ready to welcome you with its fine regional cuisine.
