Each summer, the Tour de France races across the country, giving a select group of very talented cyclists a chance to see the country from a blurry perspective. On this cycling tour of the Loire Valley, knowing the difference between a front derailleur and a rear dropout isn't necessary. Hop on a bike and experience ornate chateaux, rustic markets, vineyards, and rural Gallic charm. Think of this as the perfect combination of slow food, fine wines, and remote country tracks ideal for seeing the inspiring scenery.
Itinerary

Loire Valley Cycling (from 2018)

Day 1 - Paris

Arrive at any time. There are no planned activities until tonight's welcome meeting (please note that check-in at the hotel is usually around 2-3pm). After the meeting, you may choose to join your CEO and travel companions for an optional dinner in a local restaurant.

Day 2 - Paris/Blois

Enjoy an orientation walk in the City of Lights. Continue to the Loire Valley in the afternoon. Join your CEO for an orientation walk of Paris followed by some free time before transferring to Blois, in the heart of the Loire Valley.

Day 3 - Blois/Chenonceaux

Enjoy a full day of cycling from Blois to Chenonceau with the opportunity to visit the Chateau de Blois. First day on your bike today. Cycle onward towards the village of Chenonceau.

Day 4 - Chenonceaux/Tours

Continue cycling with stops along the way at Chateau de Chenonceau and the local markets to pick up some traditional ingredients for a french style picnic lunch. Cycle through villages and countryside to the town of Tours, via the city of Amboise. Along the way stop at a variety of markets, and pick up some succulent local fare. Find a suitable stopping point, relax with a great picnic and enjoy a lazy afternoon by the river.

Day 5 - Tours/Chinon

Set off for another full-day cycling from Tours to Chinon. Stop to visit the Chateau d'Usse en route. Upon arrival visit a local vineyard for a wine tasting. Following the river along through the green fields and flower strewn meadows of the Loire to the medieval citadel of Chinon. The terrain here is known as 'bocage', which refers to rolling hills filled with forests and pastures.

Day 6 - Chinon/Saumur

Wake up in medieval Chinon, visit troglodyte caves and cycle to Saumur. Wander around historic Chinon in the morning before taking off once more on our bikes. After leaving Chinon, the terrain changes and a steep white limestone cliff rises above us, known as 'Tuffeau'. Cycle in the shadow of this cliff along the river, admire the houses built into the cliff face as you pass.

Day 7 - Saumur/Angers

On the final day of cycling, travel from Saumur to Angers. In the evening opt for a final traditional french dinner with the group. After a week of leisurely cycling across the Loire, today is the last opportunity for you to stretch your legs and enjoy the great scenery along the route. The bulk of the route here is on specific cycle paths, but we do spend some time cycling on the main roads as well. It's fairly flat cycling through mostly countryside along the way. Angers is the final stop, so tonight is a great opportunity for one final taste of the great French cuisine and wine that the Loire is famous for.

Day 8 - Angers

Depart at any time.
