Part One: From Paris to St. Nazaire (EuroVelo 3/6)

Now there are less than two weeks left to go…here we´ve got the first part of my trip in 2015 with 722 km.

The first days I´m going to cycle with a good friend from Paris (nearly) along the “Pilgrim´s route” EuroVelo 3
down to Orléans via Fontainebleu where we will visit the famous Chateau.
After having a stop in Montargis we´ll approach Orléans and Francis will go back by train.

Now I´m on the EuroVelo 6 along the river Loire – but first there will be the Château Chambord
and Château Cheverny on the plan to visit.

Exploring the cities Tours and Saumur I´m going to see also the outstanding Château Chenonceau and
Château Villandry – but after so many cultural sights I´d like to enjoy a little bit of city life in Nantes
where there is the Festival “Velo City 2015 – Nantes” to be watched.

Finally I will reach the atlantic sea after 722 km in St. Brevin-les-pins where I´ve been already several times.

Counting down – 3 weeks to leave Paris

I can´t believe it – in only 3 weeks time I´m going to leave Paris accompanied by a good friend who live there heading towards Orléans.

I will continue by myself visiting again the wonderful river Loire I´ve been cycling in 2010  to St. Nazaire.
This cycling-path is also called the EuroVelo 6 from the atlantic coast to the black sea.

Here I´m going to follow the EuroVelo 1 heading south on the “Vélodysée” along the coast approaching Bordeaux wich I´ve been visiting two years ago in 2013 on my way to Nice.

But this time my recumbentbike, the trailer and me we are going to see the countryside heading towards Pau and then let the wheels running down to Bayonne.
Finally there will be – hopefully – some time to relax at the wonderful beach to the way to Hendaye where I´m going to take the train back to Paris.

Looking forward to this great journey – if you got any ideas what to visit – just let me know!
