Cycling for a good cause along EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route
Why did you choose to go by bike? What do you think is special about cycling? We discovered cycling for the first time on the roads of the Loire a Vélo. For starters, we took a weekend trip from Tours to Saumur. After this first discovery, we set out to reach Pornic by bike via the Loire. This trip was a real favorite of ours. The journey was magnificent, especially thanks to its proximity to nature, where you can see things that you wouldn’t see on a classic bike trip. But above all, we developed a feeling of freedom that (almost) gave us wings!
We also had some painful memories like the infamous pine thorns that have found their way several times in our inner tubes, or the famous Miguel storm that gave us a little blow to our morale. We had already endured the rain for several days. So, the day the storm broke out, having to face gusts of headwind was difficult for us.
Overall, for 1100 km covered, we had few worries, and this adventure remains (and will remain) engraved in our minds forever. It was a wonderful experience!
