Join us in Corsica for a week of thrilling rides through the rugged mountains and ocean roads of the fourth largest island in the Med. At different points in it's history, Corsica has been part of Italy & part of France but has always been fiercely independent and the riding and culture here is unique. Outside of the coastal towns, this is a very rural island where you are as likely to see livestock as vehicles.
The riding contains a bit of everything. The middle of the island is hilly and mountainous with climbs of all shapes & sizes. The longest climb is 39km (the downhill is amazing!) but there are also some short, sharp hills and plenty in the middle. We hop from town to town each day with all rides over 125km & 2,500m, Over the week we go from the very north in Bastia down to the south in Ajaccio and discover all the best rides in the middle of the island. All rides are led by our expert & knowledgable ride leaders and supported by our mechanics in vans. We set up regular feed stops and have lunch in a local cafe each day. Your luggage is transported to the next hotel each day where we relax and enjoy some post ride drinks before eating dinner all together. A real adventure of a week perfect for experienced riders looking for a unique and stunning place to ride.
Real Rider Reviews
Corsica is a rugged island with hills of all sizes. The highest pass is Col de Vergio at almost 1,500m and climbs range from 39km long but steady climbs to steep 8km at 8% brutes.
This is the 4th largest island in the med with miles of stunning coastal riding. We go just out of season so the roads are quiet but the weather is warm making these rides as good as it gets.
Corsica has been famous for years as a hiking destination attracting thousands of walkers each month in season. The landscape has some unique rock formations and spectacular views.
Five main stages covering all corners of Corsica. We start & finish in the northern town of Bastia heading all the way down to Ajaccio in the south and all the best routes in the middle before heading back to Bastia.
