Cycling along the Loire

Hop on your bike and take your time! Over 900 kilometres, the Loire cycle path (“La loire à vélo”) is one of the most beautiful cycle routes of France, the most part of which crosses the Val de Loire, a Unesco World Heritage area. At each stage of your journey, you will discover a heritage with unique and must-see treasures. A unique adventure along the Loire!

Our territory of Terres du Val de Loire extends over some fifteen kilometres, between Orléans and Chambord, and is located in an ideal central position along the Loire cycle route. Between nature and culture, contemplate a wild and unspoilt environment and enjoy the riches of our Land at your own pace.
