La Loire à Vélo
Did you know? Saint-Nazaire is the gateway to the famous cycling route “La Loire à Vélo” (Loire by Bike). If you start your tour in Saint-Nazaire, or if, after cycling along the Loire river, you arrive in Saint-Nazaire to return by train, take an hour for a leisurely exploration of a 6.2-mile loop in Saint-Nazaire which leads you to the harbour, the seafront and the city centre.
Saint-Nazaire is linked to the Loire à Vélo route by the bridge which spans the Loire estuary. For safety reasons you are advised against crossing it on your bike. During the summer there are free shuttles; the rest of the year the taxis on both sides, Saint-Nazaire (+33 240 66 02 62) and Saint-Brevin (+33 240 27 23 07) can take you to the other side, as does a regular bus ‘Aléop’ (booking possible from Monday to Friday, +33 240 21 50 87).
