Sicily’s interior has so many treasures both natural and historic that it should be a perfect destination for a cycling tour. The roads are magnificent and largely free of traffic.  The terrain is mountainous, but the distances between towns are good. Gord and I are however struggling to find routes that have accommodation in the places where we need it. There are areas in Sicily without any options. Unlike Greece and Spain we are not seeing signs for rooms or being approached by locals with offers. We are also frustrated that even though it is low season the deals offered in the tourist places along the coast are certainly not available in the interior. Wild camping with a tent, like our friends the Sloths, would work much better. We loved our ride across Sicily between Palermo and Agrigento but to truly get lost on the back roads of Sicily we will have to bring a tent next time.
