Bringing our bikes on vacation or even planning our trips around appealing cycling routes has become a constant thing to do for my wife, Judith and I over the last couple of years.
Coming from a skate & snowboard background choosing your destination by finding the interesting terrain to ride was always the way to go. Taking a similar approach with cycling reminds me of the carefree lifestyle from youth, being outside all day with nothing else in mind but being on the bike (board) and just having a good time exploring.
This summer we traveled to the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea. What caught our attention for cycling was the versatility of nature and landscapes. From ocean roads along cliffs and the teal blue sea to high alpine mountains, from mystic chestnut forests to volcanic rock formations. You can basically have all of that within one ride if you want.
