Kate wrote from the US to ask about bike hire in Calvi for a cycling holiday on Corsica. Here's what I emailed her back.
We have 4 people interested in renting road bikes this September when we are visiting Corsica. My husband and I ride Specialized Roubaix and Ruby in the US and are both size medium (+-51/52). We would bring our own helmets, shoes and Speedplay pedals. Our friends would be 1 small (48?) and either a 52 /54 in size- they will also bring their own shoes and pedals & helmets. We will arrive in Calvi on September 14 and would probably pick up the bikes on the 15of September and keep them for 10 days or so.
Can you send us your rental rates (weekly?) and tell us what kind of road bikes you rent at your shop?
