PIEDMONT ALPS BIKE TOUR
Ride serpentine roads and iconic switchbacks high in the Italian and French Alps.
We can thank war for some of the most thrilling gravel roads in the Alps.
The mountainous region at the border between France and Italy has been fought over for hundreds of years. Now, the remnants of these historic military roads and forts high atop the ridgelines of this region make it a spectacular venue for exploration.
Nearby, some of the most notorious climbs used in the Tour de France—from the Alp’s highest paved pass, the Col de l’Iseran, to the iconic Col du Galibier—make for smoother days. Not that you’re in search of easy.
And then there’s the Colle del Nivolet. Found deep in the heart of Gran Paradiso National Park, the curvaceous road is one of Italy’s most mesmerizing.
All these treats in one place. So much to explore.
