CAUTION: Notice to cyclists - Mauves bridges under construction and inaccessible until September 21, 2020 - use the alternative route via the left bank (black dotted line on the map)
Arriving in Nantes, use the cycle track to the left, running beside the Loire. To continue towards the sea, cross Willy-Brandt Bridge and follow the south bank to the right. For the train station, at Willy-Brandt Bridge, continue straight on to Tbilissi Round-About, then take the small Rue du Cornulier opposite to reach the southern train station and the town centre
The Loire à Vélo via the Loire’s south bank
Between the bridges of Mauves-sur-Loire and Bellevue, a cycle path laid out as close as possible to the Lorie, below the RD 751 road, offers a pleasant alternative to the route along the Loire’s north bank.
