La Loire a Velo

Cycling in the Loire Valley is very popular.  The national cycle route, called La Loire a Velo , runs through the area.  Uniquely there is a ferry service from La Chapelle for cyclists mid week and weekends linking the village directly to the Loire a Velo route leading to Tours in one direction and Chinon and Saumur in the other. (The boat can be hired for private trips - details available at the Maison des Bateliers.)

Local routes

Additionally, the quiet local lanes offer cyclists miles of enjoyable safe cycling in the Bourgueil wine area. 'Velo en loire route No 29' starts just 100mt from La Cachette.
