The River Loire Cycle Route : From the source in the Massif Central to the Atlantic coast Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The 1061km Loire Cycle Route starts at the source of the River Loire in the Massif Central mountains of central France and finishes at the Atlantic opposite St Nazaire.

It descends past extinct volcanoes, crater lakes and deep gorges before joining EuroVelo route 6, followed by the fully waymarked Loire a Velo, France's most popular cycle trail.

Following the river downstream in 26 stages, the route is generally downhill or level, often on dedicated traffic-free cycle tracks. Packed with a wealth of useful information - from practical planning advice to fascinating insights about the river and its surroundings - the guidebook features detailed route descriptions and informative mapping.

Details of facilities and places to stay, and a French glossary, are also included.

The route goes through the heart of France as the Loire becomes the royal river, bounded by extravagant chateaux, fields of Charolais cattle and vineyards.

It passes through historic cities like Orleans and Tours, continuing past Angers and France's fourth largest city Nantes to finish on the Atlantic coast.
