Diverse Directions: Self-Guided Cycling Tours in France

Bike Options for the Loire Valley Châteaux Tours

The rental of a hybrid bike is included in the cost of your tour package. Our supplier uses 24-speed Trek hybrid models, designed for comfort and performance. Puncture-resistant tires are standard and practically eliminate the possibility of a flat.

All bikes are equipped with handlebar bag, map carrier, cyclometer, water bottle cage, rear rack, lock, repair kit, helmet, and optional pedal cages. Please note that should we lack availability of the 24-speed Trek hybrids, we will substitute a similar quality 24-speed Arcade hybrid.


Tandem rentals are also available for our Loire Valley tours.

Road bikes are also available for this tour, subject to a supplement and to availability, but are not recommended for tour itineraries that include cycling on unpaved bike paths. Our supplier uses 27-speed Trek 1.2 models that are equipped with all the same accessories as the hybrid models, with the exception of the rear rack. The supplement for a road bike rental is $15.00 per bike per day. Please let us know if you are interested and we can help you determine whether or not a road bike is a feasible option.
