21 April 2016 - Anthony Laplagne
If you are planning a cycling holiday on Corsica this year, here are some top tips on bike rental in the area from Europe Active – the adventure cycling tours expert.
It is best to be organised for your bicycle holiday on Corsica. The ‘Isle of Beauty’ is a fabulous location for cycling. It is a real ‘get away from it all’ place, and because of that it doesn’t have a cycle hire shop on every corner, (thankfully). So you need to think ahead to prepare for your Europe cycling tour. Will you take your own bike? Will you hire a bike? What kit will you need?
If you plan to hire a bike
Europe Active – the adventure travel holiday specialist - offers a number of cycling holidays on Corsica. On each of their Corsican bicycle holidays, they will be able to supply you with a bike if you request one. They also offer a bike hire service that is independent of their tours. So if you are on the island, and you’re not on one of their tours, you can still hire a bike from Europe Active.
