Today is a good day to get your Corsica motorcycle rental and get the hang of the roads and the bike. Just be ready for an early night because our adventure begins in the morning.
130 km - 3h of riding
Today is when your motorcycle tour Corsica really begins. You will ride to the Bastia area in order to hit the road along the east coast of the Cape of Corsica. This is a lovely day’s ride, taking you through fantastic little ports including those at Erbalunga and Centuri (which is famous for lobster!).
The road gently curves along the coast, with views out across the Mediterranean and towards the Italian islands of Capraia and Elba. Having driven up the east coast, and along the top, the road returns down the magnificent west coast, with incredible views of the mountains plunging into the sea. At the end of the day, you will pass through the cliff-top perched village of Nonza and the capital of Corsican winemaking, Patrimonio, before heading back to your hotel.
Agriates's desert - Calvi

Today’s ride along unforgettable Corsica motorcycle routes will allow you to discover the Balagne. You will cross the ‘Desert des Agriates’ to join some secret small roads that only locals know about. Driving through the heart of the Balagne, you will join the route des Artisans, before dropping back down to the coast at Calvi.
Today you are really going to appreciate your Corsica motorcycle rental. You must spend time discovering the lively port of Calvi and its ancient citadel, before returning to St. Florent via Nebbio.
