A day out by e-bike along the historical irrigation canals in the Vercelli area

An easy e-bike trip along the Depretis channel and the Ivrea canal.

In our areas, the irrigation channels are of utmost importance: corn, wheat and, a bit further, rice fields, all require vital water to thrive.

There are parts of our territory where the channels are part of the landscape, straight and shiny with charm that every waterway possesses,

We propose to you a long relaxed bike trip by electric mountain bike along the banks of the canals that cross our little village Villareggia, the Naviglio d'Ivrea (built in 1468 by Jolanda di Savoia) and the Canale Depretis built in 1785. We will go towards the Vercelli area, passing close to the towns of Livorno Ferraris, Borgo D’Ale, Santhià.

This is the easiest and lighest of our e-bike tours: 55 km of the itinerary are almost all plain terrain (200 m d+), and with the e-bike this will be a walk in the park. We will stop for lunch in a special place that Marco knows, and we will enjoy nature’s spectacle.

A nice day out to be spent together relaxing on the e-bike! 

Total Km: 55, 200m d+

1 day channels e-bike

difficulty level:Easy

Suitable for everyone, you only need to know how to ride a bike and to want to be on the saddle for the day!

Marco

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!"

Of course!

It’s easy as riding a bike, but on climbs instead of pushing the bike you will be able to pedal (almost) effortlessly, thanks to the e-bike’s motor.

This is mountain biking on easy trails (they still can have roots or stones). This is the easiest of our e-bike trips.

The route will be approximately 55 km long (with possible changes due to the weather and trail conditions).

You will need to use a bike helmet, if you don’t have one we will provide you one.

This is a great little trip, trust us and come and try it!

 


 

e-bike for everyone

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!

Beautiful trip on the waterways between rice fields, canals and fields of wheat and corn. Marco and his wife Elena are two very nice and well organized people, the fantastic ebike and despite the absolute lack of training the 62 km were very pleasant (apart from the back bottom, but I think it's a problem common to most people). I recommend it to everyone, to "beginners" like me and also to true cyclists for the views and calm that can be enjoyed. In addition to the pleasant restaurant along the way.

Giroola. Pedaling along the canals of Vercellese

Beautiful day spent pedaling along the canals of Vercelli. Apart from the puncture (to be considered when you go out on a bike) it was really a good exit. Marco and Alessandro two prepared and careful guides. Highly recommended. (automatic translation by Google)

Perfect organization of the technical point of view but with added value: the great willingness to meet the wishes of the guests. On the contrary ... more than being hosted, one really feels like a family. Good! Keep it up! (automatic translation by Google)
