The RBT, Roero Bike Tour, is an itinerary dedicated to the mountain bike or e-bike usage that’s 140 km long with a univocal direction. It covers the whole Roero’s perimeter, including the three big Trails that already exist (the S1, the S4 and the S3).
RBT is divided in 7 steps, with some alternative paths or linking paths, and it lets you go from town to town on paths which are totally surrounded by nature or less busy roads.
The RBT may be done also in 4 circuits (from 15 to 48 km), adapting the itinerary to suit your own specific preferences.
