Autumn is here ..it’s mountain bike season!

The good and warm summer weather’s lasted until mid September and then, within a couple of rainy nights and cloudy days, Autumn’s appeared. Temperature dropped by 10/15 degrees, and even more over the Alps, so that means one thing: It’s Mountain biking and Cyclocross season.

This is a beautiful landscape and terrain for mountain biking, it’s in the Piemonte region of Italy, only a few Km north of Turín. As you travel towards the town of Ivrea, you can see the Serra Morenica hill with the Mombarone mountain peak dominating it with it’s 2250m of altitude.

In clear days from this point of view, it’s possible to see Turín and the Monviso mountain peak in the distance.

Mountain biking back down from Mombarone, the ride into the woodlands and trails of the Serra Morenica hill it’s very enjoyable.

In Autumn the fallen chestnut leaves and the wet pebbles can make the riding and bike handling experience quite challenging.

It’s definitely a region worth visiting for Mountain bike and Outdoor activity lovers, and I am a big fan and promoter of it.
