With the 2016 edition and the Rando del Supramonte we explored the south of Barbagia, crossed the heart of Ogliastra and touched the peaks of Gennargentu. With the route of the Rando del Cannonau we will discover the northern part of the island, pushing us to the wonderful massif of Mount Albo. Leaving Dorgali we go up along the course of the Cedrino river dominated by the Corrasi massif. From Oliena we continue on the old road to Orgosolo, from where we descend towards the vineyards of Mamoiada, before reaching Nuoro. The itinerary continues northwards through regions that are symbols of the agro-pastoral Sardinian culture: we cross Orune, Bitti and Lula in succession, before reaching the wonder of Monte Albo, which we cross along a path surrounded by greenery, under the white limestone peaks on the right and the valley of Mamone on the left. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cycling routes in Sardinia. A long descent overlooking the island of Tavolara takes us to the beaches of La Caletta di Siniscola. The silence of the countryside of Irgoli and the village of Orosei set the tone for the return to Dorgali where awaits the well-deserved Randonneur BRI/ARI patent as well as a festive evening with all the friends who will have shared this unforgettable experience.
And then start to warm up for March 28, 2020, this year too will be a party!
