“Island of Thorns” – Crossing Corsica by mountain bike

Longing for adventure and an escape from the ease of modern life, three friends set about crossing Corsica by mountain bike. Finding challenge, solitude, some rideable trails and lots of unrideable ones, they get exactly what they bargained for on.

Corsica. The mountain range in the sea. One of the few remaining wildernesses in Central Europe. Three friends set out to cross the island on their mountain bikes. What they were looking for, was a time-out from the comfort of inner-city life. What they find is an adventure, with all the blood, sweat and pain that goes with it. A story about aspiration, friendship and the joy of mountain biking.
