Monferrato Casalese, a land of “sweet”, medieval castles, ancient legends , great wines , truffles and bicycles. Lu , a village with only a two-letter name but a rich tradition, is set atop one of the sweetest hills of this territory bounded by rivers Po and Tanaro , surrounded by Barbera and Grignolino vines, the red gold . Bike Comedy Cycling Club is located here.
Outside the farm you are immediately surrounded by a natural training ground which guarantees fun and pleasure to cyclists of all levels. Cuccaro ( village that claims to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus ) , Fubine , Altavilla , Grazzano Badoglio , Grana, Ottiglio , Frassinelle , Vignale, Lu : pretty villages and rolling hills with gentle slopes that “wink” to the less trained cyclists. But that , if “attacked” , are challenging even for the professional , with slopes close to or in excess of 15%. Country roads , away from traffic , used to make happy both nature enthusiast cyclists and “granfondistas.”
Lu is located at the center of a triangle which is magic and strategic for cycling enthusiasts . On the other side , a few kilometers away , there is Tortona. And a little further uphill Castellania , the village of Fausto Coppi , surrounded by the hills of Tortona where Fausto trained . To compete on the roads of Myth is a fascinating opportunity .
A short transfer by car from Lu finally opens the fantastic scenery of the Ligurian Apennines : the longest and most challenging climbs , with steep, at times brutal slopes that plunge on to the shores of the Sea of the Riviera di Ponente. Streets for all tastes and all needs.
Bike Comedy is meant for cycling but is linked to other sports rooted in the tradition of Monferrato : there are golf fields in the area which can be challenging for all handicaps , those who love hiking and horse riding will find endless routes that take you as far as the Alps. And the near Alpine summits are great gym for novice and experienced climbers
The ideal scenario for Bike Comedy , who lives in the name of sport and wellness and of an original and inseparable combination : cycling & cooking , cycling school and cooking school.
