Eddy Namo is the newbie in this famed set of vintage bike tours, whisking you off on a journey through countryside that’s practically made to measure… An idyllic setting, as pretty as a postcard – and what’s more, it’s all yours to enjoy!
As you pass through charming villages set in the middle of vast landscapes, you’ll be amazed by the sheer scale of the region’s wine-growing estates. Whether you’re racing along, or simply coasting down a slope, you’ll feel the wind beneath your wings and fall under the spell of the Saumur and its breathtaking scenery.
Then it’s back down to earth at the Bioparc in Doué-la-Fontaine, where mongooses, giant otters and spectacled bears watch you pass by – is that a stunned look on their faces?
At every stop, you’ll find sweet treats from the Loire and local delicacies to leave you refreshed, re-energised and ready to jump back on the saddle. And when you’re nearing the finish line, the magnificent Château de Saumur will cheer you on, and invite you to swap your bike for a well-deserved glass of bubbly!
