A day out with an e-bike from Villareggia to the Masino Castle

An adventure by electric mountain bike on the paths of the hills of our area, the Canavese.

When we say “to go in girula” The idea is simple: a full day, 8 electric bikes, the paths of the stunning Morainic Amphytheatre of Ivrea, from the Church of San Martino to Masino Castle.

A bit of woods, a bit of unpaved roads, some paved ones, uphill and downhill, and all of this made easier by the e-bikes, that will help you when you need it and will make you feel like a cycling champion!

The trip will be around 35 km long, starting and arriving in Villareggia, Giroola’s home. And, in keeping up with our Piedmontese traditions, at some point we will sit down at the table for a light lunch (not too light, we have the e-bikes anyway!).

And at the end of the tour, a snack (not a small one) at Cascina Amorosa, our headquarters.

 

Masino ebike 1 day

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)

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 normal 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). 

The route will be approximately 35 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!

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!
