Ready for the Donkey Derby to Bastia

Donkey Derby Day!

It’s just a short 20 miles back to Bastia today so to liven things up we’re having a Donkey Derby. Basically, a handicap. Much debate was had last night about how much time each rider should be given and what sort or terrain to expect but we eventually settled on the following:- John sets off […]

Roly enjoys the ride

L’lle-Rousse to Macinaggio

Boiling hot today and a long ride of 75 miles in total with a couple of decent climbs and lumpy roads throughout. This ride hugs the coast and they are always up and down as you go down to the coastal villages and back up out again. But it’s gonna be spectacular… We head out […]

The groppetta battle it out Piedigriggio

Corte to L’lle Rousse

The weather is much better today and it’s hot and sunny with a few clouds about. We’ve got three climbs today with some potentially tricky turn-offs where someone could go wrong… The first climb out of Corte to Castria is not tough by any means but it stretches the legs of the lads and is […]

Coxy and Roly arrive soaked at Bocognano

Ajaccio to Corte

We’re storm chasing today as we know the forecast is bad and we were woken at 6am by the thunder and torrential rain! But as we pack the car and set off the sun is out and it’s hot again. A look towards the distant mountains though with black clouds and mist confirms we are […]

The peleton on route to Ajaccio

Porto to Ajaccio

A steep climb out of Porto is in store for the lads as we head out on the D81 which is a ‘must do’ coastal route. Should be spectacular! Although this first climb is much shorter than yesterday it’s much steeper with short sharp gradients around the hairpins. It’s hot as well, very sticky but […]

Bastia to Porto

Hot start this morning in Bastia and it’s round to the harbour for the start. Busy traffic on the roads at first as we basically head back towards the airport for the turn off for the T20. No mishaps and we head on to our first meeting point at Francardo and then on to the […]


Corsica, Jewel of the Med!

We’re off to Corsica! The French island jewel in the Mediterranean sea. We start and end in Bastia making a circular route around the northern half of the island taking in, Porto, Ajaccio, Corte, L’lle Rousse, and Cap Course. We’ll be tackling some tough climbs over the central mountains as well as tracking along the […]

Ready for the off in Dent

Dentdale Weekend

As perhaps the last outing of the summer a few of the lads decided to head to Dentdale in Cumbria and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The plan was to camp overnight on Saturday in the village of Dent and then ride back to Boro on the Sunday. A couple of the girls came […]

Coxy on route Wales in a Day 2017

Wales in Day 2017

In July a couple of the Coastbusters, Paul Coxon and Martin Russell took on the Wales in Day challenge. A mammoth undertaking! Paul tells the story…. Next up after our trip to the Dolomites was Wales in a day, a 185 mile sportive starting in Caernarfon Castle and finishing in Chepstow with some 17,000 plus […]
