Cuneo is brimming with culture and nature. Italian writer Giosuè Carducci described the city as powerful and patient, as it resisted wars and sieges throughout its history. These days, power and patience are also what we need on a bike trip. This Collection has four itineraries – four days of sunrises and sunsets – and it might make your legs sore. The journey combines fun and fatigue, as every good adventure does. You ride along well-known roads that have hosted many cyclists, and lesser-known, almost hidden, routes that are just waiting for you to discover them.

    Today's stage, the shortest of the Collection, features a couple of mythical climbs. The Colle delle Goderie has a small gravel section, whilst the Colletto del Moro is a short, hard, all asphalt climb.

    Like the others, this is a magnificent stage. This route is immersed in nature between the Pesio stream’s valley, the border with France and the Crava-Morozzo Nature Reserve. This route has more downhill than climbs. When you return to Cuneo, you’ll ask yourself – can’t I keep pedaling?
