    The last stage of the Loire by bike, this Tour presents no difficulty, both in terms of its length of 49 kilometers and its vertical drop of 120 meters. At most you will have to climb a hill in the fourth kilometer, the rest being very flat.From the start, the crossing of the Loire is done via a ferry. The crossing is free and possible every day from 5.30am until 10.30pm, with a departure every 15 minutes in both directions. All information on the Loire-Atlantique department website: inforoutes.loire-atlantique.fr/jcms/navigation/navigation-principale/bacs-de-loire/liaison-basse-indre-indret/liaison-basse- indre-indret-fr-dev_611011 kilometers away is an original sculpture of a sailboat that seems to bend at the edge of the quay. After a few kilometers along the maritime canal of the Basse Loire, you reach the village of Paimboeuf. Here, discover the Star Garden, a unique place designed by a landscape artist architect who combines sculptures, vegetation and various constructions. Also in Paimboeuf, a house facade covered with electronic components should attract your attention. This artist has covered his house with various electronic components, for a very original effect.At Mindin Point is the fort of the same name. Located exactly where the Loire meets the Atlantic Ocean, this strategically located fort was built under Napoleon III. It now houses the Marine Museum, to visit to realize that you are no longer along a river, but an ocean.
