Cycling day 6: From Tours to Saumur

As I had yesterday evening some wine with a german couple next to my tent…here is the post a little bit later. Starting my day with organic-fairtrade Samba (kind of Nutella but better) I drove to Tours to find a bicycle shop to get a new inner tyre for my trailer. After searching around, asking some pedestrians I found a really cool shop – the people there spoke english and I would be happy to have such at home. image The sun came out and this was a day just cycling and enjoying the countryside – so here come some pics… image image image Finally I’d like to have an ice-cream and went into a small market in a really small town – but there you could also get the now very famous Charlie Hebdo. image The satirical Paper now again on the market after being attacked In the end I came to Saumur where I found a cool camping with pool and rain-proove table. And also the couple mentioned above…great day! image Veröffentlicht mit WordPress für Android


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.
