Route description

This route leaves Calvi on the infamous D81B heading south to Galleria. It's a relatively flat route with the main climbing coming towards the end however the excitement starts as soon as you leave Calvi with steep descents to the Med on your right for a good portion of the first half of this ride. The roads are narrow and winding. The surface in parts and particularly as you turn inland are potholed. There's little or nothing in the way of stores en route so keep an eye out for the odd drink stop.
The main challenge is on the way back - Col de Marsilino, 443m and the way through the Grand Barriere. The main climb of the day with a maximum gradient of 12% and with a couple of kilometres before the Col where it will be plus 7%.
