More investment in French cycling holidays – Velo Francette!
This is why France is one of best places in the world to cycle or enjoy a biking holiday. New for summer 2015 is Velo Francette – a marked cycleway that lets you bike from the channel ferry port at Ouistreham (famous for Pegasus Bridge and the D-Day beaches) all the way to La Rochelle on the Atlantic coast of France. Better still, it runs right through our Loire Valley, crossing the Loire a Velo cycle-way at Saumur.
More good news for Loire cycling is that Saumur has successfully bid to host the Anjou-Velo-Vintage again this year – quickly becoming one of the biggest bike festivals in France – more on this later…..
