Bike Rental for Loire--with kids

Jump to last reply

Was thinking it might be fun for the kids if at least once when we are in the loire we rented bikes for a short (like 2-5 mile max) bike ride. Yes I realize this is a short ride, this isn't intended to be a power ride.

We're staying near Chinon, but we'll have a car for driving around to local chateaux (Villandry, Chenonceau, Azay le Rideau) and I wondered if there are any of the Loire Valley towns that might have an hourly bike rental office and a nearby scenic trail or bike paths we might enjoy with the kids. It wouldn't even have to be anywhere specific to a chateau... for example if there was a particularly scenic path along one of the rivers, or through vineyards or through farmland... we're open to it. Our only requirements would be something that rented by the hour, had something scenic, and a safe path or quiet road to ride on.

Any suggestions?
Thanks!
