- Enjoy relaxed cycling through the Loire countryside
- Visit numerous UNESCO chateaux
- Savour the wonderful food and wine of the Loire
This is a wonderfully relaxed ride through a truly charming corner of France, renowned for its architectural masterpieces, beautiful rolling countryside, exceptional vineyards, and picturesque villages. The easy pace of this trip allows us to soak it all up - there is ample opportunity to visit the opulent chateaux of Chambord and Chenonceaux, enjoy gentle cycling along the banks of the Loire and of course savour the wonderful local flavours during lazy lunches. The flexibility of the trip is enhanced by four circular rides, allowing you to have a day off the bike and relax if this takes your fancy.
