15,85 km cycling route from Beaugency to Muides-sur-Loire

The contrast between the picturesque old Loire-side villages and the electricity power station at St-Laurent-des-Eaux shows how important the Loire has been for so many human activities, past and present. A lovely cycle path runs beside the river from Tavers to Avaray, offering a flat, easy stretch as you approach the Pays des Châteaux tourist area with its famed castles around Chambord and Blois.

The route alternates between sections of greenway and shared roads, often going along the raised Loire-side levée. From Muides Bridge, there’s a link to the train station at Mer. It’s worth taking the short detour to see the old village of Tavers.
