250km of countryside to explore at your own pace!
The last stage of the Vélobuissonnière®, heading to Saumur, is something special. Start with a ride through the Loire-Authion Valley, known for its horticulture. On the way, the green lane between Baugé and Cuon offers a great view of the unusual twisted bell tower at Vieil-Baugé Church. Stop off at Longué-Jumelles and visit the restored Hydronef Mill, with its modern, fun museum where you can learn all about the history of the site.
The finish line of your trip is in Saumur, a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire®. A visit to Saumur Château is highly recommended. Set dramatically above the River Loire, it’s a classic fairy-tale castle. Round off this final day with some delicious local specialities, such as the famous fouée (a type of filled bread roll) or galipettes (stuffed mushrooms) washed down with a glass of something bubbly.
Pedal on to Vivy and Les Monteaux Lake, which makes the perfect picnic spot. Sit peacefully and observe the local flora and fauna.
