Description

Very beautiful route at the foot of the mountains, between Lanzo valley and Susa valley. You travel mostly on asphalted roads with mixed traffic, very popular with cyclists.

The beginning, downhill, is in the direction of Cafasse and Fiano, where you begin to climb through the stream Ceronda, passing the Truc di Miola and with climbs never too demanding you arrive first to La Cassa and then to Givoletto. After crossing the Casternone torrent, turn left in the direction of Alpignano and you will arrive at the entrance to the Susa valley.

Continue towards Caselette, at the foot of the Musinè, the mountain closest to Turin, and follow the Valsusina cycle path for a stretch towards Almese.
