Our first 2013 Loire Valley Bike Tour here in France
Our 2013 cycle touring season has begun, with four guests from London enjoying a four night Loire Valley Bike Tour, travelling to France via RyanAir into Tours airport. Staying with us on a Bed and Breakfast basis the guests enjoyed some of the first sunny days we’ve had in weeks and although facing a brisk easterly wind they cycled four of our fantastic Loire Valley cycle routes.
It’s been (and this week continues to be) one of the longest and wettest winters the Loire Valley has seen in decades, so these guests were super lucky!
The weather forecasters assure us that real Spring is almost in sight – with the jet stream, which brings northern Europe it’s warmer weather, finally moving north up through Spain and France to sit where it normally should. So, by Sunday we’re expecting 20c – that’s 22c more than we had only two weeks ago!
Not only that, due to the late arrival of the jet stream, we’re now being told to expect a hot May – fine by us with our first Loire Valley Discovery Tour due mid month!
