La Loire à vélo trail : tour(s)
The most beautiful bike itinerary in France is certainly La Loire à Vélo. Running beside Europe’s last untamed river, its 800 km (500 miles) of signposted itineraries and bike paths offer sweeping and contrasting panoramas. From the city of Nevers to the beaches of Saint-Brévin, the treasures of nature blend harmoniously with the unparalleled treasures of the Loire Valley’s cultural heritage. Admire the banks of the Loire River’s wild islands, the vineyards on nearby slopes; discover typical villages with charms that rival the splendors of historic cities like Orléans, Blois, Tours, Angers, and Nantes.
This relatively flat region’s low relief makes the Loire à Vélo bike paths ideal for family bike trips.
