Piemonte Italy Cycling Trip 2017
May 5 – May 9, 2017
As you know, every year for the last 8 years, Full Throttle Endurance has traveled to Italy and France for some of the most beautiful areas you will ever see. Our itinerary is now available and as you will see on BackRoads and Ciclismo Classico tour links below, we will experience about three times more of the region as they do. And fyi, single rooms and wine is not included in their pricing!
This year’s FTE trip is scheduled for May 5 - 9 which is NOT Mother's Day weekend this time! Unfortunately, the month of May is considered “high season” in Piemonte so room availability is already limited and costs already higher. John and Kim will therefore be leaving in just a few weeks to plot out the trip and firm up as much as possible to accommodate our large group in the best hotel and restaurant locations.
Basic Trip Details:
We have chosen a roundtrip flight to Milan as the best choice for this trip. Unless you wish to leave earlier for personal travel, the preferred group flight will be the non-stop United flight leaving May 4, 2017 from Newark (or other NYC airport) 6:35pm and arriving Milan morning of May 5th at 8:40am. Instead of a layover with connecting flight typically needed to arrive in Torino, we will travel by bus together for 2 hours to an estate near Casale Monteferrato at the edge of Piemonte. Our group bus will depart Milan Airport by 9:45am so plan your trip accordingly. Antonello and crew will be awaiting us at the wine estate to fit us on our bikes, enjoy a light lunch and then get an early start to Torino. (50 miles/ 2600 ft gain)
The return flight on Tuesday May 9: Milan to Newark leaving Milan at 10:40am and arriving Newark 1:45pm.
