73km of adventure along the Loire by bicycle

This section shared with the EuroVelo 6 meanders through spots reflecting the Loire’s long-established riverine civilization. You’ll see how closely so many villages are tied to the Loire via their bridges, former trading quays and typically elegant buildings. This is a joy of a section for cyclists, with the architectural fireworks of some of Europe’s most spectacular châteaux also close by. The cycling proves as easy as it is exceptional.
