Hey guys!

I'm a 20 year old student and i will be from february to august in Turin (italy).
Do you know the best places to ride there? And is there some kind of group rides?

Thanks and if someone is in town we'll share a beer ;)



Cheers

Axel

Everywhere? I'd say that due east is practically the only direction in which Torino isn't surrounded by some of the best riding on the planet! Especially if you're going to have a car or use of some local transport, you've got the Ligurian coast (eg San Remo), the alps on the french border (eg. Sestriere), the climbs towards Switzerland and even the Como area (eg Il Lombardia) within striking distance for a day trip.

It's a bloody paradise! :thumbup:

I want to do the colle del nivolet, colle delle finestre, madonna del ghisallo...
Do you know other iconic climbs?

also, if you head Southwest (near Cuneo, city with a nice feel btw), some great cols above 2000m: Agnello, Sampeyre, Fauniera/Valcavera, Lombarda...
some photos from earlier this year here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=136893&start=467
These would open in June I guess.
Earlier try the Ligurian Alps, North of Imperia/Sanremo/Ventimiglia
