105 km as close as possible to the Loire
This EuroVelo 6 section, shared with the Loire à Vélo route, goes through western Anjou, with its many rivers and wetlands, then into the Pays Nantais and the great city of Nantes. After Ancenis, the Loire broadens, its valley widens and its fresh waters mix with salty Atlantic waters carried up on the tides. Around Nantes, market gardening and vines thrive. So too do major contemporary art installations in the landscape, thanks to the Estuaire project. The cycling is easy.
