June 7: Cycling Corsica, A killer climb loop from Corte, 63 miles 7600’
Route detail is here: http://connect.garmin.com:80/activity/embed/186499186
Today’ route slip said 8100’ of climbing but I am NOT disappointed it was “only” 7600.
This loop from Corte took us through the “Defile de l’Inzecca”. I have no idea what that means, but it was one hell of a deep canyon. Very remote and wooded.
However, to get to the top, we had to climb 2800’ over 8.5 miles on a road part of which was under construction…we think for another stage of the TDF next year.
