Author’s description

Author : Bernard Giraudeau

Start and finish: on the T 22 near Afa, parking near the T20 / D161 intersection. Alt: 40 m


Through Bocca di Sarzoggiu, the route reaches the Cinarca and its corbelled villages facing the Gulf of Liscia. Then through Bocca d’Ambiegna, it gains the valley of the river Cruzzini which it skims before going up to join Bocca di Tartavellu. In the descent, it crosses Vero and finds the road axis Ajaccio-Bastia (T20) for a short time and mostly downhill! Finally, the course resumes its quiet course on small roads to reach the starting point. The roads are in good condition but never straight or flat!
