39,07 km cycling route from Montbazon to Loches

After Montbazon, cycle along close to the Indre, via little villages tucked into its meanders. Explore Cormery Abbey before crossing the river. Next, take a short detour via the charmingly planted village of Chédigny, the whole place designated a Jardin Remarquable!
Then enjoy the spectacular appearance of the royal citadel of Loches, signalled from afar by its keep and royal abode perched above the Indre. This grand little town makes an excellent choice for an overnight stay.
