Day 1 : Blois - Chambord - Bracieux

Today, cross Jacques Gabriel bridge and follow the Loire river to Saint-Dye-sur-Loire where you will enter the forest of Chambord. Visit this amazingly innovative castle built by Francis the Ist. Then, keep cycling until you arrive at your first hotel.

Day 2 : Bracieux - Cheverny - Chitenay

  • 27 km
Today, take your bikes to Cheverny castle which inspired Hergé when he designed Moulinsart in his famous comic Tintin.

Leave Chitenay using the cycle path to reach Chaumont-sur-Loire. You will need at least 3 hours to visit the whole site: a Renaissance castle - which offers a beautiful panorama on the Loire river -, a park - where pieces of contemporary art are on exhibition -, and the international garden festival which changes every year according to a theme.

Day 4 : Chaumont-sur-Loire - Blois

  • 22 km
For this last day, ride back to Blois along the Loire river. Once in town, take a walk in the old streets before visiting Blois castle which architecture reflects French history. When you are ready, come back to our shop to drop your bikes off.
