Tour of Corsica 2019
BASTIA to BASTIA | June 6–16 2019
The Topbike 2019 Tour of Corsica will be 11 days (10 nights) fully supported, off the tourist route where possible, riding up to 120k a day (but not every day), starting and finishing in Bastia, on the island of Corsica.
We will take a 60/40 coastal/inland route, including four x 2 night stops. Group size will be limited to 13, with 3 staff. There are plenty of opportunities for extra riding, if the planned day’s ride may not be enough for you.

2019 Tour of Corsica ItineraryAfter meeting up, in Bastia, or at our hotel in Castel Brando (10k north of Bastia), we’ll set up our bikes and get out for a ride in our environs. There’s a lovely piece of road that follows the coast north (and south) that will be ideal for an afternoon orientation ride.
