Last weekend, Kari and Peter were exploring Bacu Selole, just up the road from The Lemon House
, by MTB. On Saturday they drove to Golgo, rode up Bacu Dolcolce, up the SS125, then down Bacu Selole where much of the rough track had been washed away by recent rains, leaving some very rocky sections to descend...with at one point a cow dying after having broken its hind leg. Then the fun started, with a VERY partial description of how to cross into the Codula di Sisine, a locked GPS so no compass (and no spare compass), 3 punctures and only 2 spare tubes, and only two hours of daylight left and no lights... They eventually reached the road in the Codula di Sisine after dark, going a much longer way round than in the description, but with the light of the moon Peter could ride ahead to go and get the van while Kari wheeled his bike with its flat tyre. They got home at eight o'clock, two-and-a-half hours after dark, to find Anne less worried than she would be if Peter was by himself and a fab tea she'd made. On Sunday they went back and found the route they should have followed - They'd been there on Saturday, but didn't realise, the track was so faint and the river valley full of rocks, but that's how it is, especially after heavy rain - and so we know how to describe the route for other people.
Here's a nice photo of Kari, carefully checking the map, and you can see a short video here.You can also find descriptions and photos of 20-odd MTB routes in eastern Sardinia that we've documented on our site www.peteranne.it .
