Bike tour 23 april - 3 may


Posted: Sat, Mar 26, 2016, 18:23


I bicycle end april, selfsupported, as many Corsica cols as I can in 9 days.
Ajaccio, Zonza, Ghisoni, Corte, Porto, Calvi, Agriates, Cap Corse.

Is that route missing any great climbs or landscapes?
Can I easily find supermarkets for cooking me lunch and dinners?
Can I reach the GR 20 refuges by bicycle?

I guess that the only refuges on the GR20 reachable by bike are those where roads cross over the route of end in dead ends a the high points....e.g. Haut Ascu from Ponte leccia area, the road up from the East to Capanelle/Renosa. These won't be open for business?
The cross-over roads are at Col de Vergio, Vizzavona Col de Verde and at col Bavella.
Vizzavona was crossed in the 2013 Tour de France.
Open refuges in April....too early but those at the cross-over cols are possibities...maybe throw in Conca and Calanzana at either end of the route.
For the remoter refuges, unmanned at this time, you would have to carry your bike with most likely snow still on the ground in many places. :-)
