I've read a few posts about cycling in Loire Valley here and wanted to ask the tripadvisor community if my plan is reasonable and doable.
We are planning to take a train from Paris to Tours and base ourselves there from Thursday to Saturday evening. We are planning to rent bikes near Gare de Tours although I'm still not sure if we should reserve bikes in advance and how many different places to rent there are.
Thursday: the plan would be to explore Tours and fill with something else... see wineries.
Saturday: bike east to chateau de Clos-Luce and and stop at Vouvray on the way back.
I'm still unsure how we can get detailed maps in advance so we don't get lost. Can we just get them from the place where we rent the bikes?
