On the border between Italy and France, awaits a region full of unique landscapes: rugged peaks, remote valleys, clear streams and idyllic mountain villages characterise the diverse Piedmont.
The network of winding mountain roads, quiet forest paths and exciting single track is a real paradise for cyclists of all kinds. From the saddle, you’ll experience the remote mountain world of the Piedmontese Alps, where you can enjoy fantastic views and find traces of intriguing history. Local traditions are important in Piedmont and it goes without saying that there’s excellent food here in the far northwest of Italy. The Italian and French heritage, full of history and charm, merge in Piedmont to form a unique culture well worth discovering.
In this Collection, we present five bike rides that take you high up. Some of the Tours can also be done on a trekking or gravel bike, others can only be mastered on a mountain bike. It's up to you whether you prefer to climb challenging mountain passes or ride through the vineyards. No matter which you opt for, Piedmont offers plenty of possibilities to explore the landscape by bike.
