Oscar emailed in to ask about the logistics of organising a cycling holiday in the Loire.
The Loire à Vélo bike route – this section is between Angers and Tours.
I want to know where can I rent the bikes for a cycling holiday in the Loire – the cost, the castles you recommend to visit, etc.
I wrote back:
Many thanks for your email.
If you want to cycle independently, you'll need to decide where you want to start and end your trip.
Bike rental ranges from €15-€21 a day, depending on the bike type, and gets cheaper the longer you hire (€60-90) for a week. Panniers, trailers and other add-ons will usually cost extra.
If you want a bit more support and decide on self-guided tours, see our our tour listings
I hope that helps - do let me know how your trip goes, and if I can help further.
