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.

Our bike tours go through landmarks, natural reserves, peculiar places, away from motor traffic as much as we can. At a relaxed pace, with stops at attractions and visits along the way: small producers, farmers, wineries. Places frequented by locals, where fine ingredients and simplicity are the rule, this is gourmet to us!

All jaunts are free to join: EASYTORINO is not about organized or guided tours nor a business activity, just a group of natives who love sharing their favourite places in their spare time. Hospitality thing, like having 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!

We know well the cycleways of Piemonte, the Mediterranean Liguria and the lakes area of Lombardy. Routes feature sceneries, nature, peculiar places, following backroads and country paths. At easy-going pace with rest stops, food breaks and visits along the way. Each outing is hosted by a volunteer local expert (we call him “bike host”) from our group. He’s not a licenced tour guide nor a professional, but a riding companion, long-time cycle tourer, connoisseur of places, culture and oenogastronomy. Like a friend from town who shows you around.

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 then 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 also have a few spare bicycles you can borrow for free (limited availability), just ask.

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.

We love real local experiences! For this reason we favour trattorias serving regional cuisine rather than starred restaurants featuring fancy dishes. To us, “gourmet” means authentic recipes from the place made with quality ingredients, simplicity and expertise, and we know the places to go for it, off the tourist traps. Sometimes at lunch we would buy some fresh food and enjoy a picnic outdoor instead, in a park, amongst the vineyards. We will often have the chance to visit small producers such as growers, farmers, winemakers. Panoramic routes, homey hospitality and local specialties are the trademarks of EASYTORINO’s tours!

EASYTORINO is not a business activity, nor about organized or guided tours: it’s a group of natives who love to share their places with the visitors, pure hospitality thing, like having a friend in town who shows you around.
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 don’t accept cards, therefore always bring cash with you. Check the tour you are interested in to get a fair idea of the approximate expense.

Important: we do not take responsability for accidents of any kind nor provide any insurance. These are informal open rides, every participant is responsible for his/her actions and the resulting consequences, and certify that he/her is sufficiently experienced, in good health and in proper phisical condition to ride the proposed tours. Before joining, we strongly suggest you to take a thorough physical exam by a medical doctor, get a Cycling Liability Insurance and a Travel/Medical Insurance. Our tours are not suitable for children.
