Your day by day program

1
The Cape of Corsica

After meeting a member of our team in Bastia, which is located on the east side of the island, hop on your bike and cycle northwards along a coastline road, with beautiful rugged landscapes of cliffs and jagged shores. You will then cross the island to reach the West Coast. As you descend the Cape, maquis-shrouded hills, dotted with crenelated old Genoese towers, will quickly unravel before your very eyes. The west side of the Cape also holds a magnificent cluster of tiny fishing ports, set against sublime turquoise waters.

Distance: approximately 65 or 75km.

2
From the Gulf of St Florent to Bastia

After leaving the Cape, you will head south in the direction of St Florent. Depending on which itinerary you choose, you will have the opportunity to ride through Patrimonio, the Corsican capital of wine-making, via the Col de Teghime or a superb little-known back road. Both roads offer stunning views over the Gulf. Once you reach St Florent, you will be able to enjoy strolling down the port and the town’s enchanting little streets. A visit of the citadel is also recommended.

Wine tasting classes in the cellars of Patrimonio can also be arranged.

Night in a 2 star hotel in Bastia.

Distance: approximately 30 or 60km.
