Cycling Holidays France - Courleon France

Great plans for the Loire a Velo near Saumur!

Cycling Holidays in the Loire Valley are a major component of Saumur’s tourism business – so there are exciting plans to develop the Loire a Velo cycle route.  Even better, it’s the sections we use for our Loire Valley Discovery Tour.

The plans include a new ‘hanging’ section of cycle path, more cycling through the tunnel network and rest areas inside the tunnel complex itself.

If you’ve already spent a cycling holiday with us you’ll know just how much there is already to see in this part of France – well soon there will be even more!

On another note, spaces for September 2016 on the Loire Valley Discovery Cycling Tour are filling fast, so if you’re planning a trip at that time of year, then you really do need to be quick.
