Our bicycle trips are self supported and take place mostly in the Northwest regions where we come from: Piedmont, Lombardy and Liguria. We’ll be exploring 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, Franciacorta, and glorious food such as Pesto, White Alba’s Truffle, Agnolotti pasta, Milanese, Risotto.
Pedal&Palate is our motto: if you want to enjoy scenic routes and authentic regional cuisine, getting to know Italy off the tourist traps, this is just your place!

Before presenting the tours, let us give you some info about travelling with Easytorino: take your time and open the toggles below, many already know and will take it for granted, but we believe it can be useful if you are joining our gourmet cycling trips for the first time :-)

Itineraries are designed to showcase sceneries, natural reserves, curious and picturesque places, away from motor traffic. We’ll be cycling on different surfaces, both tarmac and gravel, mostly through minor roads and bike paths.
Mileage will be manageable (max 70km per day), but the terrain in Italy is hilly and sometimes we’ll meet a bumpy trail thus you must have decent cycling skills and strenght. Even though we ride at a very relaxed pace, in order to enjoy the trip it’s thoroughly important to be in good shape and feel comfortable in riding a bicycle for long hours. We recommend you to get a thorough physical exam by a medical doctor before the tour.

You can join with your own bike: Touring, MTB, Gravel or Cyclocross models are suitable. Since tours are unsupported your bicycle must be provided with rack and panniers, or frame bags: there won’t be any van assistance and you’ll have to carry your garment in fact. For short (one day/two days) trips requiring little luggage you can use a light backpack instead. If you wish we can help you to hire a fully equipped bicycle+panniers and get a transfer to/from the start and end points.

Always bring your credit card and cash: remember these are not organized tours but unsupported casual outings, we shall pay accommodation, tastings and meals directly to the businesses on the spot, each on their own. You will have to carry your luggage thus limit the number of items to the essential ones. Here is an example list:
– cycling shorts (plus extra pairs)
– cycling shirt or sport shirt, breathable preferred (plus extras)
– cycling shoes or sport shoes with grip sole
– socks (plus extras)
– breathable or cotton underwear (plus extras)
– helmet
– pocket rain jacket
– water bottles
– front and rear lights
– cycling gloves
– cycling glasses
– tubes and repair kit
– first aid kit
– chain and lock
– casual clothes for the evening
– small towel, shower gel (normally provided by the hotelier but if we stay in a private house they won’t)
– credit card and cash
– warm cycling clothes and warm evening clothes (for spring/autumn/winter tours)
N.B. Being casual outings, we do not provide any insurance. We strongly suggest you to get a Cycling Liability Insurance and a Travel/Medical Insurance before joining.

We favour cosy accommodation like small family run hotels or private houses, and dinner restaurants serving regional specialties you won’t find anywhere else. Quite often at lunch we will buy food at some farmers’ 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 cuisine are in fact the hallmarks of Easytorino’s tours!

All tours we publish on this website are on request, meaning you decide the dates you favour and we’ll make it happen. You can ask to customize the trip to better suite your needs, for instance you may combine two tours, make it individual (in such a case we do not take other participants than the local expert), ask for changes in the itinerary or accommodation.
More tours are scheduled on selected dates, you will find them in our Facebook events list.

Trips are free: you will pay accommodation, visits and meals directly on the spot to the businesses. We are not a tour operator nor licensed guides, just a bunch of foodies and bicycle tourers from the region who love to share their places with new friends, off the tourist traps. Easytorino is not about organized or guided tours but about traveling companions and exchanging cultures. At the end, if you enjoyed the experience, you can leave a tip to support our project.

Tours are on request and can be tailored to suit your needs, for instance you can combine them or make it private. Just tell us your favourite dates and preferences and we’ll make it happen! Contact info@easytorino.com or message our Facebook page
