  • Day 1

    Blois

    Individual arrival.

  • Day 2

    Blois – Amboise 45km

    We saddle up for the start of a magical ride that today takes us along the River Loire as far as Amboise. Steeped in history the atmospheric market town is celebrated for its château and the Clos-Lucé manor, where Leonardo lived for three years (and died) and where some of his remarkable inventions are on display. The 19th-century turtle fountain (topped by a teddy bear figure), the Clock Tower and the 7-level Chinese Pagoda all add to the town’s interest.

  • Day 3

    Amboise – Chenoncheaux 35km

    We start the day cycling through the magnificent Forest of Amboise and into fields of wheat and barley. Our destination is the Château de Chenonceau its gardens fabulously landscaped against the meandering River Cher. What better way to enjoy today’s exploration through verdant landscapes than astride our two wheeled steeds. Expect some ups and downs shortly before Chenoncheaux (it is always possible to return by train).

  • Day 4

    Amboise – Chitenay 45km

    Fields of wheat and poppy meadows scattered with centennial oaks welcome to the fertile farmlands of Touraine. The scenery is dotted with delightful hamlets such as Fougères and Vallières-les-Grandes and towered by majestic castles among them Fougères-sur-Biévre all awaiting your discovery. The picturesque route takes us largely along quiet roads and the only challenging climb is a kilometre stretch right at the start.

  • Day 5

    Chitenay – Blois 35km

    An easy ride takes you from Chitenay to charming Cellettes, a commune bathed by the placid River Beuvron for a visit to the Renaissance Château de Beauregard. After traversing the enchanting Forest of Roussy we come to the Loire and the town of Blois which welcomes you with its elegant bridge, monuments, works of art and narrow alleyways tangled around its castle.

  • Day 6

    Blois – Chambord 45km

    Today’s stage leads us to one of the most famous and majestic of all Loire castles: Chambord. Leaving the hotel head for Saint-Dyé-sur-Loire an ancient hamlet perched on the river. From here continue southwards into the heart of the countryside until reaching the castle’s surrounding forest.

  • Day 7
