We are a family of three with a 9 year old boy. We will be travelling in France in July for 17 days. We start off with visiting family for 3 days in Lille. From there we would like to do 6 days of cycling. We would like advice whether we should cycle in the Loire region or the Dordogne region. We have never been in these areas. Any advice on must see places to visit is very much appreciated. We are also looking for a cycling outfitter that has quality road bikes and offers self guided routes. We like to explore places that are unique and off the beaten path.
Should we station ourselves centrally and do day trips with the bike or should we do a circuit route.
We appreciate all your inputs and advice
