Until the turnoff to Lama: Fast sweeping A road- you can gun it as much as you like! Great road surface, great visibility all along the way
Balade longeant la cote de Propriano à Figari, campagne jusqu'a Porto Vecchio, montée dans les montagnes par le col de l'ospedale, montagnes avec paysages magnifiques jusqu'a Petreto Bicchisano, puis redescente en bord de mer par nationale.
Its an really nice tour with alot of different Sceneries. The way into the asco vally and the vally itself are more alpine style. Coming out of the vally again and into the area arounf belgoderè its just plain countryside with its usual side effects. !Whatch out for cows and other herdeing animals!...
Quite a scenic road but normally too busy with tourists to enjoy the ride. A spot of real natural beauty in any case that should not be missed if you visit Corsica.
There are many nice places to swim here, if youre looking around and it seems busy, simply proceed a bit further and be preared to park your bike where a car would not be able to park, here youll probably find a nice quiet stop. One of my favourite places in Corsica.
Pretty villages, forest and some spectacular views make this an excellent sightseeing road that runs deep into the forest.
The visibility is not always great so its not really a road for speed junkies but there are more animals than people so its very nice if you like nature.
The surface is ok, in places very good and in places a little bumpy. Around Evisa there can be some tourist coaches. After Evisa the road becomes a more typical Corsican mountain road with better surface and more open corners.
If you turn on to the D35 from the D80 youll be disappointed at first but if you persevere youlll find a well surfaced road which is much more free from tourist traffic than other roads on the cape. The corners flow nicely and although visibility is limited the corners are predictable and without all the sheer drops of the coastal road.
Many breathtaking cliff views of the sea and the cliffs on the west side of cape corse. Surface is mostly good, visibility limited but corners very predictable enjoyable. The occasional hire car emerging from blind corners on your side can keep you focused!
This road twists and turns as it rises out of Bastia, there are some great views overlooking the city as you rise up as well as some nice corners. Typically the corners are blind but are even radius and predictable so can still be enjoyed. The uphill section out of Bastia is good and the descent towards Saint Florent is even better. You just need to watch out for the speed bumps in the village sectons as there are no prior warning signs for these!
Driving south on the D80 on the eastern side of the cap corse peninsula is quite a different experience than on the western side. The road is more open and has the occasional two lane section to pass cars, visibility is good bu can be very windy.
This section of the D81 is reckoned by some to be the finest biking road in Corsica. For me, it was good but from a purely riding perspective I prefered some of the roads on Cap Corse further north.
Whats great about this road is its combination of dramatic scenary (it runs along a jagged coastline before going through a beautifully eroded granite area, one of Corsicas most famous attractions and a UNESCO site) it has nice predictable corners on a good surface around the granite cliffs. At Piana the road narrows and is full of tourist traffic.
Great selection of medium and high speed sweepers on good surface with quite good visibility. Be careful to slow down through the village sections and watch out for expert local drivers trying to tempt you to go a bit faster than you can!
Predictable corners, mostly good roads, just one of the many excellent roads in Corsica.
Many short and nice corners. Visibility quite limited through corners but no surprises really as corners are quite predictable. Very enjoyable but watch out for the occasional rental car driver coming the other way on your side of the road, can be a bit hairy if you
The N196 was one of my favourite roads on the island. The corners on this road are more open and better surfaced than many of the D roads in Corsica. This road can be enjoyed by just about any kind of biker with any level of experience on any bike. Great!
The N193 descends from Corsicas central mountain range down to the coast. A fast-paced road with good tarmac and lots of curves to keep your attention focused.
