The Loire Valley offers an almost unsurpassed choice of cycling routes suitable for visitors of all ages and fitness levels. Amongst the most spectacular are the circular tour of the Royal Chateaux of the Loire and the Fiver Rivers Tour taking in the Rivers Loire, Cher, Indre, Vienne and Thouet. An easy ride on a hot summer's day is the Indre Valley passing the ruined abbey at Cormery. Whilst in the area, why not use pedal power to get to some of the region's stunning chateaux - Usse, Amboise or Saumur for example - or Le Clos Luce, Leonardo da Vinci's home in Amboise. Or just enjoy easy cycling along the Loire Valley's network of quiet roads and stop off for a riverside picnic - heaven!
