I have just one thing to say about my first day bicycling the Loire River: fantastic! I had so much fun today! Troglodyte caves, vineyards, Fontevraud Abbey, escargot, my first view of The Chinon castle, and the best shower I may ever have had. We bicycled almost 50km and it was nothing less than spectacular. I was a bit worried, as it was a very slow start. I remembered how hard it is to get going the day after arriving from the states! But once we got going, the day was a blast. Tonight I am in Chinon at the Hotel Diderot which is a perfect Experience France by Bike destination! Here are some of my favorite pictures from our first day on the Loire a Velo.
