Highlights and tour details
Very beautiful route at the foot of the mountains, between the Lanzo valley and the Susa valley.
From Lanzo, you coast up and down the mountain to reach Caselette under Mount Musinè, before entering the Susa Valley and Avigliana.
The roads are mostly paved and travelled by mixed traffic, with a heavy volume of cyclists. The start, downhill, is in the direction of Cafasse and Fiano, where you start to climb again after crossing the Ceronda stream. You pass the Truc di Miola, and with climbs that are never too demanding you reach La Cassa first and then Givoletto.
After the Casternone stream, turn left in the direction of Alpignano and arrive to the entrance of the Susa valley. Continue towards Caselette, to the foot of Musinè, the mountain closest to Turin, and following part of the Val Susa cycleway head towards Almese. Before arriving at the village turn onto the cycle path Terre dell’Ovest, in an urbanised environment that leads to Avigliana.
