Piedmont is much loved for its wine and gastronomy but it is also a wonderful cycling destination with an extensive network of small country roads. On this trip you’ll get the chance to climb several of the  the Giro d’Italia favourite cols all whilst having ample time to savour the very best of Italian produce and cooking.
