Ivrea and Turin's Canavese area add E-bike tours to their popular guided walking tours 

Saturday, 02 October 2021 22:27

The Turismo Torino e Provincia promotional agency and the Municipality of Ivrea, a town just an hour from the Italian city of Turin, have launched a series of new e-bike pedal-assisted tours of Ivrea and the surrounding Canavese region.  Following the success of the Welcome Tour Ivrea and Welcome Tour Ivrea Industrial City – Unesco guided walking tours, outdoor operator Canavese Outdoor is offering new bicycle tours around the area.

Sustainable mobility tours that respect the environment

 "I believe that this is another step towards making Ivrea a more tourist oriented city”, said Tourism Councillor Costanza Casali.  “We have been collaborating with Turismo Torino e Provincia on this new project for a long time. It will make it easier to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ivrea, Industrial City of the 20th century, allowing tourists to discover the city and the area while respecting the environment by using sustainable mobility”.

Pedal-assisted bikes are the latest trend 

Cycle tourism is a constantly expanding market. In a recent report on cycle tourism Isnart-Unioncamere and Legambiente highlighted how about five million Italians used bicycles during their 2020 summer vacation. "Pedal-assisted bikes are the latest trend,” said Marcella Gaspardone of Turin and Province Tourism, “a type of tourism that involves physical activity, exploration and respect for the environment. We are sure that it will be popular with visitors who want to use an e-bike to discover the capital of the Canavese as well as the hills, castles and lakes in the area.
