Highlights and tour details

An itinerary of 320 km that connects the hills of Monferrato to the Sanctuary of Oropa in the Biella area. Eight stages, all with departures and arrivals from areas  served by the railway line allowing you to take advantage of  the train + bike service.

A flat  route with only one stringency: the climb to San Salvatore Monferrato. After 10 km from the start, at the intersection with the SP 494, we can make a detour to visit Villa La Scrivana in Valmadonna (a / r 1.4 km, WARNING the provincial is very busy).

The route begins to climb towards San Salvatore Monferrato, where we can ride up to the historic tower. From here a pleasant descent on a dirt road (4.3 km) which  takes us back to the plains. In a short while arriving  at  Giarole and the Castle of Sannazzaro.

Passing  Pomaro Monferrato, where we find a  castle from the XII century. Once in Rivalba, mountain bikers can follow the route of Ven.To, which runs along the river Po up to Frassineto on “tratturi” or sheep tracks and country roads. We avoid this disjointed stretch travelling along the SP 59 up to Ticineto and the SP 54 up to Frassineto Po, following the signs of the Circuito dei Mulini.

From here just a few kilometers along the Ven.To  seperates  us from Casale Monferrato.

Notes: immediately after the Artale barracks take the cycle-pedestrian track on the opposite side of the roadway, allowing us to safely cross the junction for the SP 10 and the bridge over the Tanaro.

WARNING:  at the time of the inspections Strada della Certa  was closed for works (May 2017), follow the indicated variant until the reopening of the road.
