Loire and Brittany

Royal Welcome for Cyclists

A trip to Brittany is a journey down through the ages. Whether pointing skyward like the menhirs or lying flat like the dolmens, the megaliths are certain to get you off your bicycle seat, particularly in Carnac. And to make your bike ride even more appetizing, a short side trip to Guérande, to sample its renowned salt. Then pursue the adventure by making a royal entrance to the Loire: the valley and its châteaux, particularly Chambord, are even more beautiful when explored by bicycle! As you ride along, you will encounter an endless succession of donjons and monumental French gardens. And to end with a stroke of brilliance: a quick tour of Île-de-France and mythic palace of Versailles!
