A day out with an e-bike in the Langhe region, in the land of the Barolo

A day out among the vineyards and hill paths, from Alba to Barolo, La Morra and the classic areas of the great wines

The Langhe region reward travelers with the best landscapes in Piedmont, and visiting them by bicycle is a unique experience. To be “inside” the landscape of vineyards and hills, riding over paths and paved roads connecting the small villages is wonderful, but the uphills parts can make it a bit challenging.

For this reason this is the perfect trip to use an e-bike, the electric bicycle that helps your pedaling action where it would be too hard to climb, helping you out and making you feel like a real athlete!

So, by e-bike, we will be able to leave from Alba, and visit the epic birthplaces of the great wines, La Morra, with its majestic Lebanon Cedar and the colorful Chapel, Barolo, who can boast the most noble name among the small towns in the area. Then we will move to Monforte D’Alba, where we will have lunch together and then we will get on the bike again to get to the Serralunga D’Alba castle, then Grinzane Cavour and then a final snack together.

A day full of adventure and discovery, and some of the flavours of our world famous cuisine, a pleasurable day out “in girula” with us.

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.

Fifty percent of the way we will be on paved roads, the rest will be on easy unpaved roads, that might include roots or stones. 

We will cover approximately 45 kilometers, with possible variations due to to the weather and the condition of the roads.

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!

Tour in the middle of a beautiful nature and beautiful villages ... A special thanks to Elena, she was a very unique "cycling companion", without her technical advice and her constant presence I do not know if I would have done it, since it was my first true bike ride of this kind (Eva););) (automatic translation by Google)

Piemonte Holiday of a Lifetime!

We just got back from a 1 week holiday in the Piemonte region, we could not have been happier or more pleased with the experience that Giroola provided! Never been to Piemonte before, Paola, Marco and team not only built the perfect itinerary for us, but they became a part of our family for the week. Special thanks to Marco for his patience, flexibility and becoming our friend for an experience and memory of a lifetime!

Sunday, July 22 with a group of friends we participated in the day in and bike in the Langhe organized by talented Giroola. The tour was beautiful and perfectly organized, Marco and Elena who have accompanied us are competent and prepared guides, able to engage and make everyone feel at ease, from whom some bike ride is usually done to those who do not go up there from years! We felt the hospitality and the passion of those who put their heart in the work that makes the first contacts for the request for information and booking, with Paola that has managed to please everyone, providing transport from Villareggia and a special menu for the lunch for those with intolerances or special needs. Thanks for everything Giroolers !! See you next time! (automatic translation by Google)
