A day by ebike at Lake Orta
Spectacular trails and landscapes around the small wonderful lake, a jewel in the mountains
Beautiful views, sometimes challenging trails, it is a ride suitable for those who have already practiced a bit of mountain biking that winds for about 40 km of which about 80% on dirt paths, some roads and some singles track of medium difficulty with a couple of very short steps to do on foot (or still in the saddle for the more experienced).
The path is very variable, with a succession of ups and downs, and of great beauty, with scenic spots difficult to reach by car.
We will spend the whole day out, and we will stop for a lunch together (included in the price of the day). The time in the saddle will be about 4-5 hours.
The tour starts and ends in Omegna.
Length of the trail: approximately 40 kms
Difference in altitude: 800 mt
difficulty level:Medium challenging
There are many stretches on unsettled terrain, both uphill and down hill (trails and unpaved roads with holes, loose stones, roots), suitable to riders with some experience of these types of trails done on a mountain bike.
Marco is the head of our biking tours. Master motorbike traveller, he's been everywhere in Europe in the last 16 years, he loves heavy metal music, eating jam directly from the jar with a spoon, living in the country and solving a Rubik's cube in less than 50 seconds. He's got super brains, he has a solution for everything but his stinky socks!
Never without: a Rubik's cube
Favourite quote: "It could be worse... It could be raining!"
This ride is of intermediate level, suitable for those who have already practiced some mountain biking.
There will be dirt roads and at times challenging trails, both up and downhill, with the presence of small jumps / drops, possibility of slippery surfaces depending on weather conditions
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 40kms, 800m of altitude gain, with a Medium Difficulty (BC).
If you have any doubts about the technical features of the tour and would like to talk to us, please email us at [email protected] 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!
The tour starts in Omegna at 09.30 in the morning. (The appointment is at 9.00 to meet and try the bikes out)
The end of the tour is scheduled around 16 pm.
