    Totaling less than 50 kilometers and less than 100 meters of climb, this Tour does not involve any particular difficulty.Did you know that the other name for the “Loire à Vélo” cycle route is “The châteaux of the Loire by bike”? Most of the Loire Valley castles are located between Orléans and Angers, but you shouldn't miss the Château de Sully-sur-Loire, located in the immediate vicinity of the cycle path at the fifteenth kilometer.The rest of the Tour always runs along the Loire, which is quite winding for a few kilometers. The quays are very pretty and have retained a very appreciable natural and wild side. Several pitches accommodate boats which do not alter the landscape in any way because they are small wooden sailboats. These small ports in the middle of nature are my favorite passages of the circuit.Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire also has a beautiful abbey which is worth a visit, although it is only 500 meters from the EuroVelo 6 cycle path. For lunch, it is better to stop at kilometer 35, in the town of Châteauneuf-sur-Loire which offers several restaurants.
