If you are an experienced cyclist and are interested in cycle tourism in Piedmont, the Langhe can certainly be for you. The Langhe are a Piedmontese area known throughout the world for their food and wine treasures: wine, hazelnuts and the white truffle of Alba. Passing through evocative landscapes such as vineyards, hazelnut groves, small medieval villages and woods, one captures the authentic soul of this land, where nature, literature and history are intertwined.
Bar to Bar: track Alba – Barbaresco - Treiso
The Bar to Bar route (from Barbaresco to Barolo) is a 124 km loop circuit that winds its way through the territories of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.

If you are not very trained and the ups and downs of the hills scare you, you can rent e-bikes in the area and recharge them along the way at the appropriate stations.
