Una giornata in e-bike sull'Anfiteatro Morenico d'Ivrea da Villareggia al Castello di Masino

Tour Per Tutti - Un'avventura in mountain bike elettrica sui sentieri delle nostre colline del Canavese, tra chiesette di collina e panorami suggestivi e sorprendenti

€ 79

Quando si dice 'andare in girula'... L'idea è semplicissima: una giornata intera, 8 bici elettriche, i sentieri delle nostre colline, l'Anfiteatro Morenico di Ivrea con i suoi sorprendenti panorami, le antiche chiesette, il Castello di Masino, luoghi incredibilmente belli e poco conosciuti da esplorare in compagnia delle nostre guide Cicloturistiche, che qui sono a casa.

Un po' di bosco, un po' di sterrato, un po' di strade asfaltate, salite e discese, il tutto reso più facile e divertente dalle e-bike, le mountain bike elettriche a pedalata assistita che ti danno una mano quando ti serve, e ti fanno quasi sentire come Pantani!

Faremo un giro con partenza e arrivo a Villareggia, la casa di Giroola. E, nel pieno rispetto delle nostre tradizioni piemontesi, ad un certo punto 'metteremo le gambe sotto la tavola' per un pranzo leggero (ma non troppo, tanto abbiamo le ebike!)

E per chi arriva a fine giro, merenda alla Cascina Amorosa, il nostro quartier generale.

Lunghezza: 45 km
Dislivello positivo: 800m

Per questo viaggio potete utilizzare una mountain bike elettrica front suspended. È possibile noleggiarla da noi, al costo supplementare di 40 euro per tutta la giornata, compreso il casco.

Masino 1 day

difficulty level:Medio Facile

Giro fisicamente non impegnativo  - le e-bike aiutano parecchio in questo senso :)  - con alcuni tratti su terreno sconnesso, sia in salita che in discesa (sterrati e sentieri, non devi aver paura di fare una discesina su ghiaia, o radici o con qualche pietra che si muove)

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!”

This is one of our EASY tours.

We will be riding secondary roads, alternating paved stretches and unpaved sections that might include roots or stones.

This is a real bike ride, a day of outdoor sports, which is why it's important to be fit for it. 

We recommend wearing padded cycling shorts as you will be riding for around 4 hours. If you are a frequent rider, remember to bring them with you. If you instead have never used them, re recommend getting a pair. Padded shorts are the biker's best friend (and also of the eBiker), because the legs will hold up well with the electric bike, but a bad “lower back” can really ruin a good day.

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.

eBike EASY

We strongly recommend wearing padded cycling shorts as you will be riding for around 4 hours. If you are a frequent rider, remember to bring them with you. If you instead have never used them, re recommend getting a pair.

If you don't own any specific bike / mountain biking clothing, the advice for outdoor days is always: dress "like an onion" (in layers)!

We advise you to wear comfortable clothing, taking into account that, along unpaved stretches, we could encounter some puddles or a bit of mud (and the mountain bikes do not have fenders). So, to sum up:

  • the helmet (if you have one, otherwise we will provide you with one of ours)
  • t-shirt
  • sneakers or hiking 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
  • sunglasses
  • sunscreen

We recommend arriving already "dressed for biking", so as to be ready to go. In addition, a tip from our Ale is to carry a spare t-shirt in your backpack, to wear for lunch and / or at the end of the ride when you get back to the car.

Il giro inizia a Villareggia, 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 solitamente è in piazza Guido Vallero, 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.

The price of the package, 79euros per person, includes:

  • Accompaniment by a bicycle tour guide authorized by the Piedmont Region for cycling / e-bike excursions for the whole day
  • lunch (two courses, water and coffee)

if you wish to use one of our eBikes for the ride, the cost of the rental for the whole day, including the helmet, is 40 euros, and can be added during the booking.

You can sign up directly in this page or by contacting us directly by e-mail at ([email protected])  or by phone or Whatsapp at the number 370 3506333

We do not own the eBikes ourselves: we work with the best rental companies in Piedmont that, depending on the type of tour we are going to do, provide us with 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.

An electric mountain bike, or e-bike, is a way to deal with paths which normally would not be doable by everyone, and enjoy the road, the landscape and nature.

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!

First experience in e-bike: exciting !! Riding on the dirt roads and on the stony paths of the hills of the morainic amphitheater has not been so tiring (you only need to wear super padded shorts). The e-bike is the ideal way to admire the landscape immersed in autumn colors and perfumes. It would be nice to repeat the experience in spring! (automatic translation by Google)

True happiness is made up of "moments". A word that has a root similar to that of "remember". And how do we remember what our "happy thoughts" really are, those of which Trilly talked to Peter Pan to get him back into his fantasy world, the one he really felt himself in? Those are the moments when you realize that you just can not take away that smile you have printed on the face and you do not even really know why, that same smile that I was surprised to have uninterrupted for hours on Saturday while I pedaled in the baptism of the laps with the e-bikes of Giroola .. And yet, as you remember, I never liked to ride a bike ... except when I was a kid, when I ran around with my BMX in the countryside in my grandparents' house and it seemed to me that I had no problem and I had everything I wanted and I really needed ... here, Saturday I felt that same feeling and the pleasure of riding a bike that I felt then! I know all the "crew" of Giroola (Paola, Marco, Alessandro, Elena and Mario) for more than ten years and I can not neglect the fact of considering them now a real second family, nor can I hide that the only fact of being able to spending some time with them for me is already worth the trip from Parma, but Saturday also gave me the opportunity to try a really new experience and I can not wait to do it again! In short, experience promoted with flying colors! GIROOLA = GOOD TRIPS! 😁 (automatic translation by Google)

Giroola ..... love at first sight. The boys and girls were perfect throughout !!!! A special thanks to Alessandro and Marco for their advice and dedication. Organization, professionalism and sympathy are their strengths. I state that to ride a bike and my great passion that unfortunately I can not cultivate because of too many worldly commitments and therefore not being too trained I thought that a day could be enough to make me savor that pleasure (the thanks), after trying it I can to say that it was so. The ebike with pedal assistance are a good compromise between those like me who do not want to work hard and trainers who want to try a different experience. Traveling with two wheels in the middle of nature was a beautiful experience, the steep descents the rough paths and the carefree make this day suitable for everyone, but just everyone and if you really feel the need to rest, the many stops and the bike battery help you to better cope with the ride. So I can not recommend everyone to try. The Giroola team will adapt all your requests in reality !!!!! (automatic translation by Google)

I tried the day on e-bikes ... I loved it and plan to do it again. Familiar and friendly environment, good transport, guaranteed assistance .. You feel right in the family! Ideal to know new places, unknown to most and often underestimated; the e-bike is perfect for a cycle touring dedicated to those who are not used to the normal pedal!
