Bicycle tours in the Loire Valley

Who's cleaning these windows? Imagine a massive outdoor art gallery exclusively devoted to architecture and you'll get a clear idea of what to expect on this tour. Quite simply, it's awe and wonder — manmade style. Chateaux large enough to apply for statehood ornament the entire valley, causing visitors to repeatedly gush "wow," "amazing," and "I'd sure hate to have to clean all of those windows..."

Self-guided cycling tours in the Loire Valley

Most of our cycling trips in the Loire Valley will take you to Chenonceau
 
Most of the riding takes place on quiet roads along the Loire river following the “Loire a Velo” route
 
You can visit Leonardo Da Vinci's residence, Clos Luce
This might be our only tour where a bicycle flat is not viewed with disdain, but rather as a welcomed excuse for stopping and gaping some more at the architectural wonders. The Chateau de Chambord, near Blois, with its 440 rooms and 365 fireplaces, crowns the valley's "You've Got To Be Kidding" list. While the Chateau de Chenonceau comes a close second with its fairy-tale design arching across the Cher River. For grandeur of a different sort, Villandry's Renaissance garden, and Amboise, Leonardo da Vinci's last residence, also rate high on the awe meter.

The valley's emphasis on spectacular also carries over to its cuisine. Fresh trout and salmon, countless varieties of goat cheese, and mushrooms from the Saumur caves (the world's largest mushroom producer) make meals taste like how the chateaux look. And its wines rival those from the Burgundy region making them perfect for toasting to beauty, grandeur, and not being the one responsible for having to clean all of the valley's chateau windows.

In the Loire Valley, we offer self-guided tours that makes the most of the virtually traffic-free bike route "La Loire a Velo." We offer three comprehensive 7 night/8 day tours:


We also offer a 4-night Short Escape. Regardless of the tour you choose, your itinerary will take you to some of the most amazing Chateaux of the Loire Valley.
