La lumineuse Loire est sauvage par endroits, avec ses vignobles prestigieux le long de ses rives, ses villes historiques de marins et une fabuleuse réserve naturelle. En Anjou, vous trouverez des îles fluviales et des coteaux couverts de vignes, couvrant des grottes souterraines dans lesquelles on cultive parfois des champignons. Entre Angers et Orléans, vous entrez dans la partie la plus iconographique de la vallée de la Loire : la vallée des châteaux de la Loire (patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO). Les châteaux sont emblématiques du style de vie majestueux de l'aristocratie lors de leur construction. Maintenant, ils partagent leur splendeur avec les cyclistes ! En suivant la rivière, le visiteur est récompensé par des reliques de l'ancien Empire romain.
