Col de Bavella – Corsica

In France, Mountains, Short Rides by Phil

A incredibly beautiful climb
The Bavella pass (1175m) is part of the Alta Rocca mountain range situated in the south east of Corsica. It is considered one of the most scenic roads on this Mediterranean island. This 35.5 km long film starts right next to the sea with a nice warm up before taking a left turn inland after passing through the resort town of Solenzara. After several kilometres of shorter ups and downs, the climb then settles into two long steep ascents separated by a welcome downhill respite. The maximum slope is 12%.
