Cycling through Corsica

We are going to Corsica next months and want to explore the northern part of it by bike. However, we wouldn't like to take our bikes with us as they need a lot of space. So what I really want to know where we can rent bikes for reasonable prices?

Hello,
The only time that I have been on a velo in Corse was one that I borrowed from the Camping Esperanza while waiting for a couple of days for my flight home from Poretta. They were heavy older type bikes that were fine for getting me to the Reserve Naturelle and on to the Stade Armand Cesari towards Bastia.
The other motive was to have a look at the final run into Bastia taken on day one of the 2013 version of Le Tour....which if you recall it nearly ended with a big problem with the peloton approaching at breakneck speed and with a bus jammed under the finish gantry.

Not really suitable for longer journeys with kit. I would be sure that if the Camping place had bikes that there must be other hiring of bikes to be had on the island.
