It’s hard to imaging that our Corsica rides are over.  This will go down as one of the very best road cycling destinations I’ve ever cycled.  I will definitely be back.

In 6 days we rode only 406 miles (ave. 68 miles/day), but we climbed just over 40,000’ (ave 6,682’/day).  Definitely the most climbing I’ve ever done in 6 days.  We only did 10,000’ more than that in Tibet over 18 days!

It’s now time for two days off the bike, then the Italian Alps for 2 days then the Dolomites for 5 days.  The legs need a rest.

Today we cycled once again through some beautiful river canyons.  The roads were narrow, steep, and had plenty of cows and pigs to keep us alert.

The weather has been perfect for cycling (at least my definition of perfect):  sunny and in the high 70’s to low 80’s.  Can’t beat that.
