In Piode you cross the bridge over the Sesia, turn to the left and then straight, following the paved road. The climb to Meggiana is quite regular, and runs along 17 hairpin bends on the road almost entirely paved. Once in Meggiana you take the dirt path on the right leading to the Alpe Pizzo. The climb is long little more than 1 Km but covers less than 200 meters in altitude, and it is very hard especially in the initial section.
At the top, near the lake, it start the bike path that goes along the valley. Along 10 km of downhill and 1000 meters in altitude, through plains, woods and pastures, you get to Rassa.
