Langhe and French Alps weekend

A fantastic weekend with lots of miles and amazing scenery. We start in the Langhe and then head for Haute Provence.  

The Langhe area of Piedmont is famous for 3 things: 1) the white Truffle of Alba which is world class, 2) The wine (ever heard of BAROLO and BARBARESCO?) 3) Hazelnuts. Anyone heard of NUTELLA? Well here it was invented! For any chocolate lover this is a once in a life time pilgrimage! 

We start our ride in Milan as usual at 2pm in our Milan office on Friday. It is a first highway stint till we reach Alba. We then ride a very nice loop (90km worth of twisties) of the main Langhe area before stopping for the night in Alba. We shall enjoy the red Piedmontese wines and sample some exquisite food. (265km)

On Saturday we head for the French Maritime Alps from Cuneo along the Col di Tenda (through the tunnel) and then reach Barcelonnette over the Col de Turini (a classic of the Montecarlo Rally) and Col de la Bonnette.

Sunday is dedicated to a fantastic loop ride to the Gorges du Verdon over the Col d'Allos and back through the Gorges de Daluis and Col de la Cayolle (315km)

On Monday we return to Milan but we still have 3 passes to do before we take the fast A4 back to Milan. We shall do in sequence Col de Vars, Col d'Izoard (absolutely amazing scenery!) and the Col de Mongenevre. We should be back in Milan by 3pm (340km)
