Nice little 80 mile loop allowing a cuppa at Compton Abbas and Salisbury.
A very pleasant and pacey run through the rolling hills and sweeping bends of the Loire Valley, this run has a little something for every road rider. Up and down straights, sweepers, good surface and nice environment through the countryside through quaint towns and past poppy fields, and all beginning only 20kms from Le Mans.
Callac to the motorway is really nice with loads of corners, after that less so.
It's been a while since I was there so the memory is a bit fuzzy and I don't recall if it's any good between Corlay and Pontivy. However it's a favourite for many bikers where I live (Jersey).
Route départementale, voie rapide, passage en sous bois, traversé de village.
This is a lazy loop that allows a cuppa/cake at Compton Abbas airfield, then again in Salisbury
