Turin to Alba by bike then onto Venice

Jump to last reply

My annual planning period starts now for a good ride on the flat with easy access from Jet2.com from Leeds. So far I can see that I can fly into Turin and follow the Po river to Venice, including cycling along the Lido and then taking a boat across the Lagoon to the causeway and from there it is short run to the Airport. This basically follows EuroVelo8 which, as the joke goes "we have not got" as only about half of it has been built so far.

All fine and dandy. But then I noticed that Alba and Asti are in the next valley east of Turin and of course some of the world's finest wine comes from those two towns. It looks like the river that joins the two links up with the Po, but a fair bit down river. Google maps seems to suggest there is a big hill in the way.

To save my old knees, any ideas of any passes etc? Advice on visits, etc etc?

May or June probably before you ask.
