    We stayed in Beaugengy and from there along the towpath to Orléans, absolutely not far and mostly good bike paths. A must

    We have made several day trips from multiple campsites, where we used the Loire a Velo routes, complemented by local routes. They were always well marked. Most trails are beautiful paved but sometimes gravel. For real race bikes not always as suitable but for touring bikes though. The route long enough campsites and for the small campsites you don't really. The exception was the ANWB camping in Saumur. Full = full.

    Parks over the departure of the cyclo ride are available in the cities. Landscaping to well designed which allows to avoid too much contact with motorists little careful towards cyclists. Not allowing me to great hiking, I have still travelled north to the South of the Loire all routes proposed in the Loiret and the Dormouse and expensive.
