As always along the Loire, the difference in height is very low, with 100 meters of climb for a total length of 49 kilometers.This Tour combines the wild Loire and urban landscapes. After having skirted the natural banks of the Loire for about ten kilometers and observing a beautiful castle ruin, we arrive in the city of Orleans.This metropolis of more than 100,000 inhabitants naturally offers access to numerous shops and restaurants. But it is especially its famous cathedral that is worth seeing. The rest of the crossing of Orléans is done without incident since the city has many cycle paths so as not to interrupt EuroVelo 6. At the exit of the city, the Pont de l'Europe allows you to reach a lesser side. urban in order to find nature.It is precisely in the heart of nature, a few kilometers further, that the Tour will allow you to admire the confluence of the Loiret and the Loire. A little further on, return to civilization and history, with the castle of Meung-sur-Loire.
