Corse 2003

Wanna see Corse again. The beautiful island in southern Fance

I wanted to see again this beautiful French Island, from the bike rider point of view. The Island with tiny beaches enbedded of rough cliffs, located on the east coast. In contrast a long long sand coast on the west side. I wanted to see Corse again, which I saw firstly in 1990. I experienced, It’s every journey worth, even if it’s for one week and very early in the year. So my start was beginning of April 2003. Colder but nice and quiet. The tour started with the ferry from Nice to Calvi, first adventure, and cycling was done along the east coast heading south to Bonifacio and then north direction Bastia. I think there is no further detailed description needed, only small nice streets follow as close as possible to mediterranean see. The trip was  during the time period 05.04-16.04.2003
