Details

Guidebook to cycling the Loire, France's longest river, from its source in the Massif Central to the Atlantic. The 1052km (654 mile) route incorporates a section of EuroVélo 6 and the popular, waymarked Loire à Vélo. Cycling is mostly on cycle paths and quiet roads.

Following the river downstream in 26 stages, the route is generally downhill or level often on dedicated traffic-free cycle tracks. It descends past extinct volcanoes, crater lakes and deep gorges before joining EuroVélo route 6 and the fully waymarked Loire à Vélo, France's most popular cycle trail. The route passes through historic cities like Orléans and Tours, continuing past Angers and France's fourth largest city Nantes.

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 included.
