Six cycling tours have been created and marked out near La Charité-sur-Loire so you can discover some of the treasures and landscapes of the surrounding area. With different levels of difficulty and distance (from 18 to 30 kilometres), the circuits take you in turn through forests, along the banks of the Loire, out into the countryside … something to satisfy all your interests.
Price: 4 euros.
The tourist office also offers cycling tour ride sheets, on sale for 1 euro each.
The Bertranges region offers great tours through the heart of nature for mountain bikers of all levels. But you can also get off the beaten track by choosing Loire à Vélo, which stops off at La Charité-sur-Loire (from the village of La Chapelle-Montlinard).
An 800 km route starts in Cuffy in the Cher and ends in Saint-Brévin-les-Pins in the Loire-Atlantique. And if your heart and calves let you, try the Eurovélo 6 cycling adventure, a circuit of 2500 km which connects Nantes to Budapest.
