Scenic cycle routes, regional specialties, genuine hospitality: our three mantras! EASYTORINO bicycle trips take place in our home regions, in Northwest Italy; mainly Piemonte since we live there, but also in the nearby Liguria and Lombardia and Valle d’Aosta.
The routes go through landmarks, natural reserves, curios, following backroads and gravel paths, away from busy streets and motor traffic as much as possible. We will bike at a relaxed pace, with stops at attractions and tasty visits along the way: small producers, farmers, wineries.
All jaunts are free to join: EASYTORINO is not about organized or guided tours nor a business activity, it’s a group of natives who love cycling and sharing places with the visitors. Hospitality thing, like a friend who squires you around.
EASYTORINO is for all who want to experience Piedmont from a truly local, insider’s perspective. Join us, we look forward to ride with you!
Even though we ride at an easy pace and mileage is manageable (from 26 to 80km per day depending on the tour), it’s important that you are in good shape and feel comfortable in biking for long hours, on various conditions and terrains. We expect you to have adequate cycling skills and strenght.
N.B. Our outings are not suitable for children.
You can join with your own bike: Touring, MTB, Gravel or Cyclocross models are usually suitable, anyway just ask us to make sure.
If you need we can help to hire a bicycle from a local rental shop. We sometimes have a few spare bicycles you can borrow for free (limited availability).
Always bring your credit card and cash: remember these are not guided nor organized tours but unsupported casual outings, nothing is due to us, you will pay your expenses (bike hire, meals, etc) directly to the businesses on the spot. Wear comfortable clothes, sportive garments preferably. Limit your items to the essentials and carry a light backpack.

All bicycle trips are free to join, in company of a volunteer (bike host) from our group. Nothing is due to us, you will pay your expenses (rental, meals, tastings, etc) directly to the businesses, each on his own. Many of them are small or family run activities and they may not accept cards, therefore always bring cash with you. Check the tour you are interested in to get a fair idea of the approximate expense. If you enjoyed the ride, you are welcome to leave a gratuity to the bike host.
