This Saint-Jacques à Vélo stage alternates between quiet country roads and greenways, running beside waterways lined by fields and pastures. Midway along, you enter the Pays du Vouvray, where Touraine’s famed vineyards yield a fine array of white wines. Then you come to the Loire, a lovely cycle path hugging its north bank. Finish by crossing what the French describe as the last great wild river in Europe to reach the centre of the city of Tours.
