    We made it!!!
    The last weeks my wife and I made up our plans for a tour from Austria to Corsica. The biggest hurdle was to book the ferry crossing from Savona in Italy to Bastia in Corsica under our conditions. 2 bikers, 2 bikes and only one cabin for the over night travel with the ferry. The online systems of all ferry companies did not accept this configuration. The systems would only accept 2 cabins or no cabin. Therefore we had to book it via a travel agency. They also had some issues with the Italians but made it possible. Therefore we will ride in late May on the first day from Austria to Savona in Italy (about 900 km) and take the overnight ferry to Bastia in Corsica. There we already have booked a nice appartement for a week. From Bastia we will explore the whole isle of Corsica. On the last day in Corsica we leave via an other ferry (only 4-5 hours journey time) from Bastia to Livorno in Italy and will ride home with an additional stop over night in Italy. We are really looking forward to this journey.
    As always I will come up with some reports and pictures.;)

    Biking heaven. And not as spendy as folk used to say. Was there for 7 nights in 2019, Calvi, Porto & Bastia. Need to go back to explore the southern half cos it took so long to get anywhere! Constant twisties and some challenging surfaces, so much so I had to back off the damping in the rear shock.

    Gorges de Restonica & The Calanques standouts


    looking fwd to the story (and pics,) enjoy.

    @Stramasher: I am looking forward to the journey. We are preparing ourselves for the long runs before our trip with some smaller touring events in Austria.
