My Bike Tour Of Europe

Angers to Saumur – Sept. 10

I was anxious to move on from my difficulties in Angers and the pendulum to the complete opposite extreme.

The weather was perfect and the ride out of Angers was picturesque knowing I was on the right path.


I stopped for a cafe (espresso) just before I joined back up with the Eurovelo 6 and.the sun shining so I got to test my Goal Zero solar charging system. By the way, it works fantastically.


The ride to Saumur included a single track path next to the Loire that made for some awesome views.


Saumur is a great “Rick Steve’s” town. Very approachable size with enough people to be busy but not too crowded and it has a nice castle. I did my first castle tour in Saumur.


After the castle I set up for a nice picnic at the campsite.

    I am a software guy, but my site is a simple WordPress installation with a link to the Track My Tour app, which I have found is very easy to use and provides a lot of information quickly. The theme for WordPress is called Travelfy (or something like that). It was the only free travel theme I found on the WordPress site.
