THE SALT ROAD BY E-BIKE: A HIGH-ALTITUDE RIDE!

Carsene del Marguareis: a day on the saddle of an e-bike from Rocca dell'Abisso to Colle dei Signori

The Salt Road is one of the many gems, which Cuneo and its Alps offers tourists or travellers who want to engage with the uncontaminated, pure and vibrant nature of high altitudes.

This road has connected the mountains to the sea since ancient times. For many years, it was used by travellers, traders, shepherds, pilgrims and muleteers to exchange salt from Liguria (used to preserve meat, fish and olives) with agricultural products from Piedmont. The road has been renovated, allowing everyone to experience this wild territory that changes appearance at every bend, from the Alpine pastures to the Carsene, to the landscape which slowly becomes maritime. The road can only be travelled in summer during the opening period and, on dirt roads, it takes from Colle di Tenda to any town of the Riviera di Ponente as far as Cote d'Azur; the most daring cyclists can cycle the Limone Piemonte -Ventimiglia, whereas the excursion from Colle di Tenda to Rifugio Don Barbera close to Colle dei Signori is truly within the reach of both adults and children.

Participants depart from the chalet delle Marmotte (1800 m) on Colle di Tenda and travel the crest of the Italian-French border, pedalling the entire route at 2000 m on gentle slopes and easy descents to Rifugio Don Barbera, along a beautiful dirt road built during the great wars by the Italian military, but never used for war purposes, immersed in breath-taking scenery on the highest peaks of the southern Alps, larch woods and vegetation which joins alpine species and strictly maritime species.
