We spent 4 days touring the Loire Valley of France by bicycle. The Loire Valley is famous for its châteaux and easy cycling routes so we figured this will be an interesting way to explore the area. We saw the majestic Chambord (latter pictures) and classy Cheverny (top picture) on our first day. We also cycled passed some of the most beautiful sunflower fields I’ve ever seen.
Day 1 of cycling was a little shock to our system as we overestimated our ability and got a little lost in the process. But as you do for all things, we did not give up and pushed on for the remaining days and I’m glad to say that 160km and 5 shades of tan later, we successfully conquered Loire Valley on two wheels! Yeehah! More posts to come on the châteaux we visited in Loire Valley.
