Probably one of the best kept secrets of the Southern Alps for electric mountain biking...
Flowery hamlets, fine cuisine, comfortable hotels, typical architecture rich in history, breathtaking mountain landscapes and panoramic views accessible via the old gun tracks... It is hard to find a more beautiful place to get away from it all if you are looking for authentic and wild mountains.
Just like our "Queyras Discovery" trip, this trip in Piedmont takes you through the 3 border valleys (Valle Varaita, Valle Maïra, Valle Stura) while remaining accessible to anyone who is sufficiently comfortable on their bike, favouring discovery and the good life side of cycling over the overly technical and challenging trails that can be found in the valley. A real touring bike!
