We organize excursions on MTB or Racing Bikes with or without a guide in Biella territory and in the province of Biella.
Let’s start from the beginning, why coming to Biella?
Biella is a small province close to the mountains, it offers a lot of itineraries for walking or MTB. Biella is well-known for its wool industry, brands such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Fila, Cerruti just to mention some of them, have made this province famous around the world.
What to do in Biella
Biellese landscape is the main beauty, we are at the foot of the Pre-Alps, and we have the chance to do walking tours, biking and riding. The old part of Biella is called Biella Piazzo and it is possible to head it through a comfortable funicular. Few Km far from Biella, in the middle of the mountains there is Oropa with a very important shrine, one of the biggest in Europe consecrated to the Virgin Mary. And then, the Ricetto of Candelo, a medieval village of the end of 1300 and Baraggia of Candelo, one of the destinations of our excursions. Finally, you should not miss the rhododendrons blossom in the Burcina Park.

Biella and its province offer a range of excursions on Racing Bikes, e-bikes and MTB. Cervo Valley, Elvo Valley, Bielmonte and Zegna scenic route, Sessera Valley, Bagneri, Le Salvine and Tracciolino are the usual destionations of bikers. We won’t go through a detailed description of these places in this section because we will highlight them in our excursion proposals.
