Day two in Corsica

The view leaving St Florent was magnificent.  Well, the view everywhere in Corsica is magnificent.  It was again a steady climb, and I was glad to have a triple crank. 

These roads were soooo curvy and it was so windy, with no guardrail, that I had to hold on tight and stay straight for fear of blowing off the side!  It was incredible.

I made it through and stopped at a beautiful beach.

I stayed at a beautiful house in Monticellu, close to l’isle Russe.

It was great.  My hosts, Vivi et Yon, from couchsurfing.org were very hospitabile and made a great dinner!!

distance 50.70

time 3.26.35

avg speed 14.72

max speed 47.37 km hr

Today I learned that a good meal makes climbing easier

  2. Heather, you look so very relaxed and happy. Good for you…

  3. Did you go in the water or was your hair wet from a shower?

  4. Heather – these all look great! Take a picture of your loaded rig so I can see what you are pulling. How is that bike treating you?

    Looks and sounds like you are having a great adventure. Keep posting and soak it all in.
