CYCLING TOURISM: THE HILLS AROUND BIELLA

Bicycle
Request information

A must for the beauty of the views over the flatlands, the route starts from Biella railway station and heads towards the hills to the west of the city.

Itinerary to discover Sordevolo, the Burcina Park and the Cervo Valley on your bike.

The route passes through Occhieppo Inferiore, Occhieppo Superiore and up towards Sordevolo, a pretty hillside village where every five years, on every summer weekend, a theatrical representation of the “Passion of Christ” is staged.  It is the inhabitants of the village, non-professional actors of course, who on that occasion perform with great commitment and skill in front of an audience from all over Italy and even beyond! We then take the scenic road to Pollone, where, after an obligatory stop at the Burcina Park, a nature reserve that covers an entire hillside, known in particular for the spectacular flowering of the Rhododendron Valley in May, we descend towards Biella. Turn towards Vandorno to start climbing the hill again towards the quiet residential area, and continue cycling through the greenery towards Cervo Valley on roads with little traffic through the woods, following the signs for Pralungo and Tollegno. Continue on to Andorno Micca and enter another valley, passing through Locato and San Giuseppe di Casto hamlets, then turn right at the fork towards Selve Marcone and follow the signs for Pettinengo and Zumaglia. In Zumaglia, we recommend a stop at the Brich hill, whose summit is dominated by the castle, a reconstruction from the early 20th century. The route continues towards Ronco, a village known for the production of terracotta tableware, the 'bielline', to which a museum cell is dedicated that can be visited during summer, and then reaches Valdengo and Vigliano, where you pedal among castles and historic residences in an area of great wine-growing tradition before returning to Biella.
