Exploring the elegantly photogenic hills of Piedmont with the odd world class wine along the way, this group returns for another very special Italian cycling trip.

Piedmont doesn't shout or push its way to the front, but calmly goes about its business of producing food and wine that is nothing short of exceptional.

The terrain on this tour abounds with gentle, rounded hills and pockets of woodland. Quiet roads meander through the vineyards, the light and shadows providing mesmerising views to simply enjoy.

Join James and the crew for a fantastic tour in 2024. Salute!

FULL ITINERARY

DAY ONE TUE 28 MAY | WELCOME

We come to Turin to take again on an adventure - this time in the beautiful rolling hills of the Piemonte region. After the transfer from Turin to Biletta and our very comfortable hotel, we'll check the bikes before a short shake-out ride past the double tree - literally! Dinner in the evening for Tour Briefing and official Welcome.
DISTANCE | 37KM | 23MI
ELEVATION | 500M | 1650FT

DAY TWO WED 29 MAY | LOOP TO CASALE MONFERRATO

Delightful winding route on very quiet roads towards the charming town of Casale Monferrato. We'll stop for coffee and then pedal our way back to Biletta, with a possible stop at the Big Bench.
DISTANCE | 70KM | 43MI
ELEVATION | 1250M | 4100FT

DAY THREE THU 30 MAY | BILETTA TO BENEVELLO

The start of the ride, heading south towards Alba, is through open farmland dedicated to food production. As we near Alba the crops give way to a proliferation of vines marking our entry into the incredible Langhe wine region.
DISTANCE | 84KM | 53MI
ELEVATION |1200M | 3900FT

DAY FOUR FRI 31 MAY | ALBA LOOP

For the few in the group who love their red wine - oh! all of you - today we venture into Barolo terrain. The vineyards will be a fresh, green tapestry over the rounded hills where we'll enjoy riding at its best. The day wouldn't be complete with out some wine tasting, and our local guide knows these hills and wines blindfolded. Salute!
DISTANCE | 80KM | 50MI
ELEVATION | 1500M | 5050FT

DAY FIVE SAT 1 JUN | BENEVELLO TO BISTAGNO

Today is an easier day with a short, temperate course winding through small towns such as Nizza Monferrato where the vines are literally on the door step of the city. This region is home to sparkling wines. Indeed the cellars of Canelli are such masterpieces of engineering and architecture, and wind so extensively beneath the town that some have UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
DISTANCE | 57KM | 35MI
ELEVATION | 750M | 2450FT

DAY SIX SUN 2 JUN | BISTAGNO TO GAVI

Shocking but true - our route today features a town and wine that do not start with 'B'! A scenic ride that meanders to Villa Sparina passing through Gavi along the way. Gorgeous views are to be had from the fort perched high above the village. In addition to superb wines, Gavi is also famous for delicious ravioli.
DISTANCE | 70KM | 43MI
ELEVATION | 1400M | 4600FT

DAY SEVEN MON 3 JUN | LOOP TO MARCAROLO

Stunning views as we ride into the Natural Park of Capanne di Marcarolo, and dip over the regional border into Liguria. Today is your Queen stage. Three passes in the fledgling western end of the Apennines with steady climbs and descents frequented by Piedmont's most famous cyclist Fausto Coppi. A memorable day out with optional shortcuts and of course our limousine service.
DISTANCE | 85KM | 53MI
ELEVATION | 2100M | 6890FT

DAY EIGHT TUE 4 JUN | GAVI LOOP TO CASTELLANIA

A visit for cyclists to Piedmont would not be complete without a ride to the home town of Fausto Coppi. Ride the roads on which Fausto and his brother forged their cycling skills. Our celebration dinner in La Gallina restaurant at Villa Sparina will be the perfect end to an idyllic tour.
DISTANCE | 70KM | 43MI
ELEVATION | 1000M | 3300FT

DAY NINE WED 5 JUN | GOODBYE

Early morning transfer to Turin - we'll get you there around mid-morning, so you can make departure plan accordingly.
Time to say farewell, until next time!
Ride safe Puntos.
