Chateaux of the Loire Bike Trip
SELF-GUIDED, EUROPEAN BIKE TOUR
We are our own group. For 8 days we bike from village to town, enjoying the coutryside, castles, vineyards, and incredible food and drink. The terrain is flat and easy (but just in case, you can also get an E-bike that pedals for you!). We are provided with all we need (bikes, maps, etc) and our bags are moved to the next hotel each day while we are enjoying the day.
Every night is a 5 course gastronomic dinner with wine pairings. Our hotels are 4 star and all include outdoor pools.

Our hotel the first night
We pay a flat price that includes everything over the 8 days of the trip
We meet our trip contact at the appointed place the first day. He goes over the trip with us and shows us our hotels each day along the route, fits us for bikes, distributes maps and GPS units and gives us his contact number.
Each day we ride to our next hotel through incredibly beautiful towns and villages, passing chateaus and wineries, sunflower fields and stopping for a beer and lunch wherever you want along the way. It's leisurely, fun and oh, so wonderful. No groups, no schedule, no decisions (our bags are transported for us to the next day's hotel).
Each 4 star hotel has a pool and spa...and serves us a 5 course dinner along with wine from the region. Next morning, enjoy a fantastic breakfast buffet. Side trips, shopping and longer bike routes are options each day for those interested.

June is the ideal time to travel to Europe. The days are mid-70's and nights are cool-ish.
Fly into Paris. We take a 1 hour train trip where we meet our transfer to the first night's hotel. Take same train back to Paris after tour. Fly home.
