Waytypes of the stage
Via small roads, and sometimes tracks, on this stage sticking mainly to agricultural plains. Take care on the Loire bridge at St-Rémy-la-Varenne. The routes into Angers are remarkable, whether you go via the former slate mines of Trélazé or the Loire-side Levée de la Belle Poule. Make the most of the many little tracks leading down to the Loire to appreciate the particularly broad, magnificent stretches of the river in these parts.
