Our Bikestyle clients arrived at our Paris airport hotel on Thursday and to clear the jet lag we assembled bikes and took an easy ride from Roissy on a 40km loop near the airport
An early rise on Friday for a 7.30 departure to Nantes, which will be our base for the first three days of the tour. It was a long day in the bus so we stopped mid way near the beautiful town of Blois and took a scenic ride along the Loire to Chaumont sur Loire where we enjoyed a beer before getting back on the bus for the final leg into Nantes. It was a beautiful summer's day with the temperature around 30 degrees and a nice little tail wind to help us along our way.
