    With a total of just 60 meters of elevation gain spread over approximately 47 kilometers, this Tour is flat and suitable for everyone for a day trip.This first stage of the Loire by bike takes you from Nevers to La-Charité-sur-Loire.
    After a few detours in Nevers to visit its historical monuments, I suggest you take the Pont de Loire to start the adventure. A few kilometers of cycle path further on, you cross the Allier, before reaching the confluence of these two rivers, which marks the zero kilometer of this cycle route. Fun fact: you will pass in front of two successive markers marking the zero kilometer of the Loire by bike because the route of the latter has been modified and extended.
    The EuroVelo 6 track that we follow on this Tour runs along the Loire, sometimes right by the river, sometimes a few hundred meters from it, to vary the landscapes. The banks of the Loire are rather wild here, punctuated by a bridge every 20 kilometers or so.Although the route is rather touristy, the restaurants and water points along the track are few. You will of course find everything you need at the start in Nevers, as well as on arrival at Charité-sur-Loire, but to eat halfway without leaving the track, there is no has only one restaurant, located just after the Fourchambault bridge.On arrival, it is possible to stay in the historic and picturesque small town of La Charité-sur-Loire or in the campsite located on the island below, in the Loire. Here, the Loire separates the departments of Nièvre and Cher. The campsite located on the island in the middle of the Loire is therefore precisely between these two departments.
