Departure Bases & Suggested Routes in Mayenne, Pays de la Loire:
Angers - Daon - Chateauneuf sur Sarthe - Chenille Change - Le Mans

Mayenne, Pays-de-la-Lore

THE ANJOU IS A REGION RICH IN HISTORY
The various rivers, Mayenne, Sarthe and Oudon, offer more than 300km of navigation. Here you have the opportunity to cruise through wooded landscapes and explore towns such as Laval, with its castle that towers above the river, or Angers, the town of the powerful King René of the 15th century. You can also visit Le Mans, known for car racing, Solesmes and its Beddictine Abbey, or Sablé, where you can savour its delicious shortbread cookies.

The River Mayenne is one of the most beautiful rivers in France. The river is wilder to the North between Laval and Mayenne. To the South between Daon and Angers, the landscape is flat and there are more charming villages to be found(Chenillé Changé, Le Lion d’Angers, etc…). This will give you a chance to ride your bike along the towpath as it is flatter and thus less tiring.

The river Sarthe joins the river Mayenne near Angers. A visit to the Abbey of Solemes is a must, as is Malicorne-sur-Sarth, which is known for its china, and no one can miss Le Mans, of course.
