I will guide you on this route with the latest generation of assisted mountain bikes.
The Colli Tortonesi are a portion of Monferrato that has escaped mass tourism, despite the proximity of large settlements. Milan, Turin, Genoa and Piacenza can be reached in less than an hour.
This area of the province of Alessandria has Tortona as its "capital" and the Po Valley on one side and the Ligurian and Tuscan Emilian Apennines on the other.
The cultivation of grapes as in the Langa, combined with cereal fields as in Tuscany, make these hills very particular and varied to the eye.
Ancient villages, castles, towers and churches dominate the heights and watch over the wayfarer who dares to cross these territories. Some people call them "Terre di Mezzo", who Monferrato, who Colli Tortonesi. I call them home.
We'll ride on soft and well-kept hills, we'll cross enchanted villages rich in history and we'll cross Unesco slopes, which many and many times have seen Fausto and Serse Coppi, cycling champions who were born here and trained here.
We will use easy country roads and asphalt roads with low traffic flow that will take us to admire breathtaking views of the plain below on one side and the Apennines on the other.
4 hours of low physical commitment but of great emotional satisfaction.
The route is subject to small changes depending on the season and possible rains in the days before the exit.
Meeting at the Awareness E-bike rental in Costa Vescovato AL at 9:00 or 14:00. The route is 40 km long and is suitable for all levels of training. During the trip, we will stop in a wine cellar for a tasting of wines and unique local products, such as Derthona wine which is made from Timorasso grapes, Montebore cheese dating back to the 16th century or Giarolo noble salami. We will then return to our starting point.
All the e-bikes rented are equipped with gel saddle, water bottle holder, anti-puncture in Kevlar.
