The opening three days of the 2013 Tour de France has put the Mediterranean Island of Corsica firmly on the road biking map, for both islanders and cyclists from all over the world. Our new 'Tour de Corse' is a beautiful and challenging 7-day road ride to rival any of the more famous Alpine tours. We begin and end in Bastia, a 15th century port with cultural links to Italy and its Genoese rulers of days long gone by. Our first full day riding is around the northern headland of Cap Corse, through secluded coves and by the sun-kissed beaches of Corsica's north-west coast. From Calvi, we continue south along the beautiful coast line and cross the Col de Palmarelia to reach Porto, gateway to the stunning Calanques de Piana. Leaving the coast, we climb the Col de Vergio to follow Corsica's mountainous spine south, through sleepy villages, craggy mountains and forested hillsides.
