Known as a « Mountainous island basking under the Mediterranean sun », the island of Corsica is a unique combination of unspoilt coastline and beaches, with dramatic heights, green forests and rocky canyons. Being so diverse and preserved, no wonder the island is a real paradise for those who love activities in great outdoors, cyclists particularly!
As a road cycler, why not challenging yourself along some stages of the Tour de France’s 100th edition Grand Départ (2013)? You could experience the same rewarding stages and stunning views while weaving your way between red rocks and blue seas of the spectacular Calanche de Piana -on the island’s west coast-, or the vertiginous ascent of the Col de Vizzavona (1 163m) across the central range of mountains or any other back road at the heart of the island. The isle of beauty and the great outdoors are in your reach, all year round !
As a mountain biker, the many tracks along the coastline and inland await you for family gentle rides or for challenging, stunning stages across wild landscapes from one hilltop village to another! For Enduro / Downhill MTB lovers, a dedicated bike park in Zonza, Alta Rocca, in central southern Corsica, offers over 30 tracks options across some of the most beautiful mountain sceneries in the island.
Either on or off road, professional instructors and certified companies are available for you throughout the island, and can propose bike / e-bike rental, tours and itineraries with or without assistance, adapted to your dreams and expectations.
