SV Travel: Corsica

SV Travel: Corsica

  • Figari-Sud Corse (FSC) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Corsica, with its Italian and French history and rebellious, independent spirit, feels far removed from the mainland – and it is all the better for it. With 650 miles of unspoilt palm-fringed coastline, a spine of wild, rugged mountains soaring to 10,000 ft., and an almost unlimited choice of challenging, winding roads – not to mention a robust and delicious local cuisine – it’s an utterly seductive destination for cyclists.

No place rivals Japan when it comes to providing an abundance of incredible experiences in a small amount of space. We’re offering a unique departure to explore Japan’s longest cycle friendly bicycle bridge system in the world, the Shimanami Kaido. Followed by a remote ride through the foothills into Hiroshima with a visit to the Peace Memorial-a World Heritage Site.

The remainder of our trip sees us travelling further south by the high-speed Shinkansen train to the third largest island of Japan-Kyushu. A mountainous region known for its soaring volcanic peaks, steaming hot springs, peaceful beaches and slow-paced living. We will further explore this amazing island by bike, staying in traditional ryokan inns along the way.

Structured Training Clinic

Structured Training Clinic

We invite you to join us for an informative evening to discuss training, power meters, setting goals, bike fit and any questions you might have.

It’s safe to say when most people hear the word “training” they assume it’s something reserved for elite riders. But, simply put, training is for anyone trying to achieve a goal. Your goal might be a Gran Fondo, travel, long distance rides or general health and wellness. Cycling is also safer and often times more enjoyable when you have better fitness. 

Local experts Dana Williams from Achieve Performance & Coaching and Brenda Lyons from Pioneer Cycle Sports will be joining us. They will share their deep knowledge and help us to understand structured training and how we might better integrate it into our daily rides.

WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 28th (6-8pm)
WHERE: Studio Velo
Light refreshments
