A day by e-bike between the Zegna Oasis and the Valsesia

The cool mountain air, breathtaking landscapes among uncontaminated valleys and the view on the Monte Rosa chain, in a technically simple route, perfect for electric mountain bikes.

This itinerary is spectacular and fun: we will always travel over 1200 meters in altitude, in the true mountain, far from the heat of the plains. At the same time, the paths that we will travel will be easy from a technical standpoint, largely on routes that can also be traveled by off-road vehicles, without any particular difficulty. A unique opportunity to make the most of the characteristics of pedal assisted mountain bikes and spend a wonderful day out in nature.

We will leave already at an altitude of 1382 meters. of the Piazzale del Bocchetto Sessera (Bielmonte - Oasi Zegna) and we will start with a long and fun descent on an easy dirt road that will take us to the valley floor up to the bridge over the Sessera stream.

From here we will resume the journey on easy ups and downs, which will cross several valleys with uncontaminated alpine landscapes, to easily reach the lower level that leads to Bocchetta della Boscarola. Starting from here, we will leave the Biella area behind to officially enter Valsesia. Now, we will be only a few kilometers from our final destination, the Alpe di Mera, and from a spectacular balcony on the Monte Rosa chain.

The return will take place on the same road as the first leg.

Altitude difference 500 m, length approx 50 km.

difficulty level:Medium easy

Not physically challenging  - e-bikes help a lot for this :) - with some stretches on unsettled terrain, both uphill and downhill. (trails and unpaved roads, you should not be afraid of a little downhill on gravel, or some roots or loose stones)

Fulvio

Speed: I was born with this great passion, since I was young I was attracted to motorcycles. The curves, the overtaking, the speed and this "hunger" to run brought me first in the circuits and then approached the trial where I refined my skills as a driver. Getting to the rally cars was a natural step, for years I raced and competed with lots of satisfaction and lots of adrenaline! Then, in my life as a sportsman, MTB arrived and it was immediately love. The mountain paths have taken the place of the race tracks but the emotion I feel is always the same.

E-bike

This ride is simple from a technical standpoint, although it takes place at altitude.

Due to the assisted pedaling system, the e-bike will also make the ride much easier from a physical point of view, helping a lot in the climbs and leaving the biker free to concentrate on the technique.

 

These will be around 50kms, 500m of altitude gain, with an Easy difficulty (MC).

In the CAI difficulty classification, MC stands for: Path on unpaved roads with little uneven or irregular terrain or on paths with compact and easy bottom.

If you have any doubts about the technical features of the tour and would like to talk to us, please email us at marco@giroola.com or call us, we'll discuss it together.

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.

There 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!

Me and 5 other friends, we had the pleasure of doing an e-MTB tour in the Zegna oasis of Bielmonte, we entrusted to the tour operator GIROOLA who has known since the first contacts send us their enthusiasm for what they do. They were kind, serious and precise. The ride was pleasant thanks to our friendly and professional Marco and Fulvio escorts. Surely we will refer to them for other outputs together.
