Epicurean Pedals is a collection of bicycle&food tours designed by EASYTORINO’s local experts and distributed by Giroola, a young and dynamic tour operator specialising in outdoor and active holidays in Italy.
The trips take place in the Northwest regions where we come from: Piedmont, Lombardy and Liguria. You’ll be cycling through amazing sites like Cinque Terre, Monferrato, Langhe, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como, the Italian Riviera. A land where food and wine is culture, birthplace of the Slow Food movement, home of great wines like Barolo, Barbaresco, Moscato, and glorious food such as Pesto, White Alba’s Truffle, Agnolotti pasta, Risotto.

If you are a travel agent and are interested in reselling our Epicurean Pedals tours, or need support to develop your own ones, do not hesitate to contact info@easytorino.com

Tours are dedicated to fairly experienced cyclists: you don’t need to be an avid rider since we would keep a slow pace, but you shall feel comfortable in riding long hours across hilly terrains and sometimes through dirt tracks.
Itineraries are designed to showcase sceneries, natural reserves and picturesque places, with stops for photos, visits and wine tastings along the way. Away from motor traffic as much as we can: we prefer a bumpy trail than a busy road!

The price includes a classic touring bicycle with helmet, luggage transport from hotel to hotel, all meals drinks excluded, accommodation in double room with breakfast, visits and tastings, fees and entrances, taxes. A volunteer local expert will join the ride at no cost: he is not a professional but rather a trustworthy companion, fine connoisseur of the places, culture and oenogastronomy.
Upon request we can provide quotations for daily van support, licensed cycling tour guide, electric-assisted bicycle, trasfer to/from the starting and ending points of the tour, pre-tour and post-tour accommodation.

Always bring some cash and the usual items for an excursion, such as sunglasses, tissues, id card, pocket rain jacket, etcetera: remember your luggages will be transported from hotel to hotel so you would need to wear and bring with you all you need for the day. Wear comfortable: sporty breathable clothes, sneakers with grip soles and shorts (padded cycling shorts preferred).
We favour cosy accommodation like small family run hotels or farmhouses, and dinner restaurants serving regional cuisine you won’t find anywhere else. Quite often at lunch we will buy food at the market and organize a picnic in the nature, while in other cases we’ll find a cafè or an osteria on the way. Throughout the day we would have the chance to visit growers, fresh food producers and winemakers and get to know their job and delights. Together with panoramic routes, genuine hospitality and authentic local specialties are in fact the hallmarks of Easytorino’s tours!

All tours we display are on request, meaning you decide the dates you favour and we’ll make it happen: the tour will be scheduled and open to other participants. We can customize the trip to better suite your needs, for instance you may combine two tours, make it private (in such a case we do not take other participants, it will be only you and the local expert), ask for changes in the itinerary or accommodation.
More tours take place on scheduled dates, you can find them in our Facebook events list.

Trips are intended for fairly experienced cycle tourers, they are not indicated for beginners. Tours are labeled as Easy, Intermediate, Demanding. The difference is given by elevation gain, distance and lenght. While Easy tours are suitable for anybody with good cycling skills, Intermediate and Demanding tours feature hilly terrains and require strenght and endurance.
Costs may vary depending on the season and number of participants, therefore the prices shown are based on an average of 6 persons in middle season: the exact cost will be given once you provide your travel dates. Tours will be confirmed as soon as the minimum number of participants is reached (unless you ask for a private tour, which is always guaranteed).
