Una giornata in ebike alla scoperta della Val Soana, una bellezza poco conosciuta

Tour sportivo - Un percorso insolito tra panorami e borgate, tra sentieri e valli poco battute, una giornata in bicicletta fuori dal tempo

€ 79

Se amate i tour panoramici, dove dall'alto si dominano grandi paesaggi abbracciando con lo sguardo paesi, boschi e città, questo insolito tour in Val Soana è perfetto per voi!

Partiremo da Pont Canavese, per salire subito su fino alla Cappella del Belice, da dove cominceremo a seguire un sentiero panoramico in quota fino alla Valle Verdassa, tra borgate e case sparse. 

Sono luoghi con il sapore di altri tempi, dove la natura, la montagna ed il susseguirsi delle stagioni dettano i ritmi di una vita tranquilla. Un viaggio lontano dai luoghi alla moda, un percorso alla riscoperta delle cose semplici.

E soprattutto un giro molto bello da fare!

Lunghezza: 50 km
Dislivello positivo: 1.500m

Per questo viaggio consigliamo di utilizzare una mountain bike elettrica full suspended. E' possibile noleggiarla da noi, al costo supplementare di 50 euro per tutta la giornata, compreso il casco.

difficulty level:Medio Impegnativo

Sono presenti numerosi tratti su terreno sconnesso, sia in salita che in discesa (sterrati e sentieri, con buche, pietre smosse, radici), adatto a chi ha già un minimo di esperienza di percorsi di questo tipo affrontati in mtb

Marco face bike
Marco

Mago dei numeri, sportivo da sempre, Marco ha deciso che la vita da dirigente d'azienda non faceva per lui, e ha deciso di andare in girula pedalando sui sentieri del Piemonte. 
Viaggiatore esperto anche in moto, è stato quasi ovunque in Europa negli ultimi 20 anni, ascolta musica heavymetal e mangia marmellate e nutella direttamente dal vasetto col cucchiai(n)o.
Vive in una cascina in campagna e nei prossimi anni vorrebbe attraversare l'America in moto, imparare ad impennare (bene) con la mtb e risolvere il cubo di rubik in meno di 1minuto

Mai senza: Nutella e cucchiaino

Citazione preferita: "Potrebbe essere peggio... Potrebbe piovere!”

In questo tour incontreremo strade sterrate e sentieri a tratti impegnativi, sia in salita che in discesa, con presenza di scalini e di piccoli salti/drop, e con la possibilità di incontrare fondo scivoloso a seconda delle condizioni meteo.

This is one of our CHALLENGING tours.

This is a bike tour dedicated to cyclists with good experience and adequate physical and technical preparation, and in good health.

If you need any clarification or additional information in addition to what you find on this page, you can contact us by email or by phone, or via whatsapp 

We recommend wearing padded cycling shorts as you will be riding for many hours. 

In all our eBike tours it is essential to wear a helmet, if you don't have one we can lend it to you. If you rent one of our eBikes, the helmet is included in the price.

Il giro inizia a Pont Canavese, alle 9.30 del mattino per chi viene con la propria eBike,
Per chi noleggia la bici da noi, l'appuntamento è mezz'ora prima, alle 9.00 del mattino. 

Il punto di ritrovo è il parcheggio del Centro Polifunzionale di Pont Canavese, in ViaSoana 32, clicca qui per le coordinate Google Maps.

Prima della partenza confermeremo ai viaggiatori iscritti l'esatto luogo dell'appuntamento.

La fine del giro è prevista, nello stesso punto del ritrovo al mattino, verso le 16:30-17.00.

If the weather makes the tour impossible, we will contact you the day before (when the weather forecast becomes more reliable) to reschedule the day or for a reimbursement.

If you are considering a Challenging / Medium Challenging tour, you probably already own the required equipment to pedal for a day riding an eBike. In this paragraph we have inserted the "reminder" that Marco himself uses to be sure not to forget anything before leaving for a tour, even if only for a day:

  • helmet - it is not (yet) required by law, but it is in all our tours 🙂
  • padded shorts
  • technical fabric t-shirt
  • specific bike / mtb shoes (or gym / trekking shoes)
  • a backpack with a long-sleeved shirt and a rainproof jacket or windproof inside (maybe you won't need them but...!)
  • a water bottle for water / mineral salts
  • a snack
  • sunglasses
  • sunscreen

The protections (knee pads / elbow pads / back protectors) are not mandatory, and for this type of tour Marco does not wear them, but considering that the route will be mainly on roads and (even very bumpy) paths, if you feel more comfortable you can bring it with you and wear it when you think it best.

We recommend arriving already "dressed for biking", so as to be ready to go.

 

If you come with your own ebike, it is important to make sure that the bike is in perfect working order:

  • tyres in good condition
  • working brakes
  • suspensions in order and correctly calibrated
  • chain not overly worn or damaged
  • charged battery 🙂

Finally, Marco has in his backpack the necessary items to carry out small repairs, but some spare parts are not universally compatible, so it would be good if everyone had in their backpack some spare parts of the type and size suitable for their own eBike:

  • spare bike tube
  • chain connecting link
  • a pair of brake pads
  • the gear fork

The list is long, but it will all fit all in a small backpack.

eBike Demanding Equipment

We do not own the eBikes ourselves: we work with the best rental companies in Piedmont that, for this type of tour, provide us with fully suspended eBikes that are clean, in excellent working order, medium-high range (like Cube, Focus, Haibike, Rossignol, Thok, all equipped with Bosch - Shimano - Yamaha motors) and, importantly, of the correct size.

These are are also called “pedal assist” bikes, because the motor will help the rider in moving, but the rider still has to pedal.

So, by riding an e-bike, someone who is trained can get even further, and beginners can have fun without feeling exhausted straight away.

To understand and get a feel for how much fun and easy to use of these bicycles are, the only solution is to come and try!
