  • We get a lot of customers in our rooms of bed and breakfast to Mareau - aux-Prés (the formerly House) and down with us to "do" the loire by bike. We have experienced it to account for its interest.

  • Based at the hotel in Blois, many facilities allow to flow into the city to bike safely. Day 1: 50 km loop in AR on the castle of Chambord / record: 60 km has been made because local arrow routes use the same signage than the Loire by bike. The different routes intersecting, it quickly embarked on a wrong route without realizing it. Day 2: TER to Amboise with the bikes. Great, the sncf play with trains equipped for bicycles (attention however, there are a lot of bikes that use the train). 44 km planned for the return on Blois, 60 km done. Again, to about Beuvron-Candé, signs go inland on a local loop and we're soon out of nails. And we saw stopped road bikes which seemed to search their way also. In short, use the same signs on all local loops and the Loire by bike, it is not a good idea :) Apart from that, it's beautiful (portion of Chaumont on Loire at Candé is top notably in banks of the Loire). Amboise, city step do imperative
