This tour has taught me so much about my physical limits and taught me that my mind is stronger than I thought. What we went through is nothing compared to what the people in the projects Change a Life supports go through every day. The sense of hardship on the bike and the feeling of pride and victory at the end of the tour gives us a glimpse of what it might be like to be one of those people the projects build up.

The Change a Life La Dolce Vita Tour 2019

After the 2018 cycle tour in the French Pyranees, we knew expectations for the 12th tour would be high. So the search was on for a cycling tour destination with that magic mix of grand adventure, mountainous physical challenge and exceptional cycling conditions. We found it in Sardinia – one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. 

Located west of the Italian peninsula and south of the French island of Corsica, Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It’s combination of unique natural beauty, regional Italian cuisine, exciting routes and ancient culture – not to mention an intriguing mob history – made Sardinia a dream destination for our experienced cyclists. 

The Change a Life La Dolce Vita Tour took place from 19 to 25 September 2019. Our participants got to travel with a group of like-minded cyclists during our four day 500 km tour and test their mettle on a truly spectacular route through Sardinia. Enjoying the seamless organisation and after-cycling comfort that Change a Life is renowned for – and most importantly, playing their part in the lives of hundreds of young South Africans by giving them the break they need and deserve. Continua a cambiare vita!
