Bike Tour

Piedmont – Vineyards and Sea

Northern Italy Bike Tours

A bike tour from the Piedmont hills to the ligurian sea, trought nature, wine and food, in a UNESCO world heritage area.

This extremely unusual road bike tour in Piedmont takes us from the beautiful Langhe area to the Ligurian sea. We start our cycling holiday in Piedmont going through some very famous vineyards and old villages, full of historic atmosphere, spending the week riding along peaceful back roads.

Two days cycling in the Low Langhe Area, visiting the villages that give their name to very famous white and red wines: Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d’Alba, Diano d’Alba, Dolcetto d’Alba and many more. But this area is also well known for its delicious cuisine and local recipes with white and black truffles and many different kinds of savoury cheeses.

From the third day, we leave this area to go close to the Sea. Enchanting villages in pristine nature, cycling on back roads far from the traffic, are waiting for us, rolling hills and at the end, the Ligurian Sea, where we ride along the road where the famous Milano-Sanremo bike race takes place.

The road bike tour in Piedmont is organised for a small group of 7 people at the most. During the tour, you will be always followed by our Van Assistance, and you will stay in exclusive accommodation personally chosen by our team. Our team is totally focused on attention to details to ensure the very best bike tour in Piedmont!

Day 2: The wine Road Loop

  • Distance: 68 km42 mi
  • Elevation: 1430 m4691 ft

Our Piedmont bike tour begins. After an energetic breakfast based on organic products, we start to pedal south.
We ride through an incredible landscape of rolling hills surrounded by vineyards, visiting typical old villages, here we are in the Barolo wine production area.

This is a perfect cycling holiday spot, a continuous up and down ride, where we start our amazing bike experience. We stop in some of the famous characteristic villages to have a delicious “capuccino and cornetto”. Cerreto Langhe, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Diano d’Alba some of these enchanting little towns where we go through peaceful back roads. A delicious dinner tasting local organic wine closes this first day.

Day 3: The Beautiful Langhe

  • Distance: 90 km56 mi
  • Elevation: 1640 m5380 ft

Our Bike tour today takes us in the southeast Langhe area. Departing from Alba we head to our first town of the day: Canelli. This area and the Asti Spumante white wine, was appointed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014.

Keeping on riding we meet other interesting, important old towns: San Stefano Belbo, Bubbio, Benevello and many more. We enjoy an unforgettable cycling day, far from the traffic and deep in a fairy tale atmosphere. We can’t miss our daily “espresso and cappuccino” in some of these old village squares. This evening we deserve to drink a refreshing “Spritz” as an appetizer, just before a rewarding and delicious dinner.

Day 4: Heading to the Sea

  • Distance: 68 km42 mi
  • Elevation: 1280 m4199 ft

Today we have to pack because our cycling road towards the Ligurian Sea is waiting for us. Our bike tour today takes us in a different landscape, slowly we pass from the vineyard countryside to wild hills. This area divides the Piedmont Region from the Liguria Region, we ride through rolling hills, dealing with some demanding but short ascents followed by amusing descents.

The road between Murazzano and Montezemolo, a road that runs on a hill ridge with a breathtaking view on the both sides, is really beautiful . Millesimo, a village in the High Bormida Valley in the Regional Park of Bric Tana, is our goal today. This evening we have a new typical dinner, we try new flavors and taste a new kind of wine.

Day 5: From the Mountains to the Sea

  • Distance: 66 km41 mi
  • Elevation: 1010 m3313 ft

Today our bike tour takes us in a mountain area, pedaling through some little pretty mountain villages, we get to Calizzano. Here our ascent starts, it is 9 km long with a difference in altitude of 400 m and an average slope of 5%. This easy ascent takes place in a beautiful beech wood that ensures a bit of cool also during the heat of the day, we ride in an Alpine atmosphere, we are in the Sea Alps area. The Pass is at 1027 m above sea level, here we can admire some old barracks and a fortress built in 1883.

Finally, we can see the Ligurian sea, we have to deal with a technical but amusing descent. This descent is 18km long and takes us from the pass to the beach. As a reward for our effort, a cool “Spritz” is waiting for us on the beach.

Day 6: The Ligurian Sea Loop

  • Distance: 64 km40 mi
  • Elevation: 3346 m1020 ft

Another completely different cycling day. Liguria is really famous for its extraordinary sea and beaches, but is also well-known for its immaculate backcountry full of flower crops, one of the most important products of this area. We leave our accommodation after an energetic breakfast and start to climb up towards one of the countless tiny villages overlooking the sea.

With the mountains on one side and the sea on the other, we reach some beautiful natural terraces with a breathtaking sea view, and after a descent we can ride our last kilometers on the Milano-Sanremo road alongside the coast. Our last dinner, in an exclusive terrace on the sea, closes this unique bike tour from Piedmont to the Sea.
