Classic Turin Loop. I did it on a hybrid bike hired from Touringbike which was in good condition but heavier than I'm used to. The climb to the Superga is spectacular with views over Turin. There is a water point on the Via Dei Colli and the route is shaded in the morning. The route takes you over 6 hills (colli)
Some potholes. Descent from Superga is steep. Hot and humid.
