Camino de Santiago by bike

Covering 380 km from Rambouillet to Châtellerault via Tours, this is the part of the Way of Saint James that is most popular with cyclists, since it is relatively flat. In Touraine, the “Via Turonenis” (Tours route) runs alongside the Brenne area towards the Vouvray wine region, before going south towards the Vienne valley.

In Vendôme and Châtellerault, the train stations are an easy way to get to and from the cycling routes. So, it’s simple to plan out an excursion lasting 2 or 4 days, depending on the daily distance you want to travel:

– Between Vendôme and Tours: 94 km (stopover possible at Château-Renault)

– Between Tours and Châtellerault: 84 km (stopover possible at Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine)

If you need to rent a bike, keep in mind that there is several rental shops in Tours.
