01/05/2020 - 31/10/2020
DISCOVERING THE LAKES, HILLS AND MOUNTAINS OF THE BIELLA AREA… AND MUCH MORE.. AN ANCIENT GOLD MINE AND LOCAL CULINARY DELIGHTS.
In an area off the beaten track of mass tourism, rely on our bike tour guides to help you discover the infinite routes offered by our territory. Visit ancient gold mines of Roman times, Sanctuaries at the foot of the mountains, parks and nature reserves, highlands similar to African savannahs, all on the saddle of your pedal assisted bicycle.
Day 1: arrival to Biella by own means and check-in with our partner, Relais Santo Stefano. With tastefully furnished spaces and bright and spacious rooms, which face onto the surrounding nature, it offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere ideal to relax after your day spent pedalling in nature. Meeting and briefing with the bike tour guide who will help you choose among the many routes based on your interests and physical shape. From here, you will depart for your cycle trip to discover the area of Biella.
A few suggestions?
Discover the Tracciolino, the Biella balcony over the Po Valley! And to earn this magnificent view you will pass the largest Marian Sanctuary of the Alps, Oropa, for the climb made famous by the Giro d’Italia and by Pantani's feat in the 1999 Giro! You will cycle the entire Tracciolino, passing by the Trappa and continuing to the Sanctuary of Graglia. The relaxing descent will take you through beautiful towns like Sordevolo, home to the 2015 Sacred Representation of the Passion of Christ and Pollone with a visit to the Park of Burcina, famous in May for the blooming of rhododendrons. Packed lunch halfway along the route and return to hotel. Dine in the hotel restaurant, overnight stay.
Day 2: after breakfast, depart for the second day of cycling in the Biella area. The possible routes are many but there is another proposal: a beautiful cycle that, starting from Biella and crossing the Serra, the longest moraine hill in Europe, will make you become acquainted with the natural park of Bessa, ancient gold mine at the time of the Romans and home to the Gold diggers World Championship in 2013! You will rest along the banks of Lake Viverone, taste the local wines in a winery and continue for Magnano with a visit to the Romanesque church of San Secondo and the nearby Ricetto. You will pass next to Le Betulle Golf Club, the most beautiful golf course of Italy in 2013. Packed lunch provided by the hotel. Return to the hotel and end of the package.Info
