A BIKE TRIP WITH A DIFFERENCE

4 days of gravel, relaxation and fun exploring Corsica as you’ve never seen it before. Experience the local culture, taste the local specialities and discover the incredibly varied geography. All part of our adventure, in a small group of ten intrepid cyclists led by a qualified guide.

The journey starts at our base camp in the south of the island where you’ll find all you need to refresh and recharge after a good days riding. Our host is fascinating and passionate about his eco sheep farm built with his own fair hands. He’s a true gourmet of travel, food and most of all people, and will regale you with stories of life on the island.

Lift your head from your GPS and make the most of the routes put together by the GravelUp team, with incredible views a-plenty. It’s not just about the riding though - yoga, meditation and relaxation is all a part of the trip, allowing you those moments of calm to fully refresh and get the full experience. Et voila… the perfect expedition to fall under the spell of the Isle of Beauty, as Corsica is otherwise known!

This was my first experience on gravel and it could not have been a better destination to try it. The Gravel Up team were very welcoming, highly organised and confidently handled riders of quite varying abilities and fitness. It says a lot for an event, and those who lead it, when the time off the bike is almost as good as time on the trails. I would recommend Gravel Up to anybody wanting to test themselves a little (or a lot!) and to enjoy great company and excellent food in the best surroundings.

Climbing mountains makes you happy ! This second experience with gravel up was awesome. Another group, another destination, and I could find the same atmosphere that only the gravel up team is able to foster within just a weekend and between people who don’t know each other beforehand !
