EMTB TOUR ENDURO SEMI ITINÉRANT 100% EBIKE IN HIDDEN VALLEYS OF PIÉMONTE
During this EMTB TOUR ENDURO semi itinerant, we will take you to the unspoilt Stura and Maira Valleys, two hidden treasures for mountain bike fans and an unforgettable riding!
Thanks to our logistical support you can enjoy each area to the max. There is something for everyone! Surrounded by soaring mountains, high altitude climbs, single tracks looping through the woods and stunning trails linking the ancient Italian villages … Be warned…this area will blow you away!
We add (to all of this!) a comfortable hotel with excellent food which makes a EMTB TOUR ENDURO different from the rest of our catalogue
PS: “Apparently there is a Hamman and a sauna in one of the hotels!….. Shush”
The High Stura Valley
We start this EMTB TOUR ENDURO with a great circular ride at the top of the valley. Alpine pastures and fast paths that you can straight line, you will feel like you are high up in the mountains right from day one! Because this is more than just a warm-up ride, you are free to decide whether you want to go back down the same path or take a more playful downhill trail?…
A local classic and it won’t take you long to understand why! It’s perfect, the views are as good as the trail. Imagine yourself on a technical downhill path with a stunning panorama over the valley below…it’s hard not to lose your balance!
A midday transfer to get back to the Gardetta Plateau, where you enjoy a second descent leading directly to your hotel!
Conquering Mount Bellino
I know this is an Enduro tour, so why is there so much uphill….because you can use you e-MTB to get you up to the top AND its so worth it for the 1600 metres of downhill bliss which is waiting for you….
Up & Down
Drop off point at Marmora, then ….it’s our little secret…a route through the woods where there is no-one in sight, all of this on e-MTB, it’s going to be incredible!
A second session in the Elva area, we’re going to ride fast, very fast through beautiful landscapes…lunch stop in a restaurant!
Switching to the Val Bellino
What would you say to spending our last morning doing some amazing biking before heading back to the car and driving back to work? A downhill trail which features in our Top 5 Best downhills in the Queyra Piedmont areas. You need to be awake for this one so we recommend drinking an expresso at the departure point and an americano on arrival !
