This sporting event is organised by the Lisula-Balagna Intercommunal Tourist Office in partnership with the Muntagna Bikes Balagna Club, chaired by Jean-Philippe Martelli.
This first festival is dedicated to cycling and specifically mountain biking and presents the finals of the French Enduro Mountain Bike Championship. This major competition brings together some 400 riders – both amateurs and pros.
The contests will take place between the mountains and the seashore at a range of altitudes from 2500m to 0. In total there are 16 tracks which include 11 timed lap races and 5 recon rides.
With more than 350 riders already registered, more than 1000 visitors, including riders support, are expected.
The Bike Festival is also aimed at educating the general public about non-motorized 2-wheel travel. Corsican cycling clubs, sportspeople and families can also enjoy rides and workshops.
