Loire by Bike

Loire by Bike

The troglodytes of Ermitage are placed on the itinerary of the Loire by bike.

You can reach Amboise along the Loire in 20 minutes.


-The Loire à Vélo is an immense 800 kilometers long tourist cycling route, a unique bicycle route in France. Built in both directions, it links Cuffy (near Nevers) to Saint-Brevin-les-Pins (opposite Saint-Nazaire). Imagine: it crosses the Centre and Pays de la Loire regions. It flirts with the longest river in France, the Loire, this valley of wonders whose banks are an inexhaustible mine of treasures.

The Loire à Vélo is the western section of  Eurovélo 6, the great European cycle route. Each year, it attracts more collateral trails: the trails of the Vélocéan network and of the Vendée coastline on the Atlantic coast, those of the Châteaux à Vélo around Blois and Chambord, the "Indre à Vélo"... The Loire à Vélo will surely make you want to travel across Europe by bike, for a green, cultural and eco-responsible tourism.
