For those seeking a refreshing cycle through verdant countryside, surrounded by vast vineyards and orchards and the enticing aromas of rustic Italian cuisine, the Piedmont is an area we couldn’t recommend any higher. 

From the region’s capital of Torino, you’ll cycle (and devour) your way along the river Po, over lush green foothills, through beautiful medieval towns including Pinerolo and Saluzzo, and towards the gastronomic gems of Bra and Alba. And even if the leisurely rides and rich history don’t get your heart racing, the region’s traditional sweets certainly will: chocolate, pannetone, Nutella…you’ll have to pedal twice as hard to burn off those extra calories! Equally as decadent are the savouries: braised beef, veal agnolotti, and the famous white truffle of Alba. All of these pair beautifully, of course, with a bottle of the local wine.

Luckily, we’ve planned this trip accordingly—you’ll cap off your tour with a luxurious cycle through the Piedmontese wine country. Believe us when we say that staying upright in the saddle might present a challenge after a few glasses of Barolo and Barbaresco!
