After many months of silence and lots of interesting happenings in Colorado and beyond, I am back home in France and back online. We have spent several days in Paris and London and are now on our way to Orléans to start our Tour de la Loire. We arrive late this afternoon and pick up our bikes this evening, in hopes of an early start tomorrow morning.
All in all, our route from Orléans to Saint Nazaire is just a little shy of 500 km (310 miles).
Along the way, friends and family will be popping in to ride with us and follow the river past: a château built for a kings, a church as old as Charlemagne, a bridge inspired by Eiffel, an inland lighthouse, extraordinary cave dwellings, an open-air art gallery, and of course gourmet restaurants, gorgeous vineyards and artisanal fare.
I am planning on posting daily (fingers crossed for consistent WIFI), and share our adventure with you. Donc, jump on your virtual bike and follow along on what is sure to be a memorable journey…
À toute à l’heure!
