Alumni Western Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Cycling in the Loire Valley

Tour Operator: Travel by Design Ruse Travel
Cost: $2990 CDN
Activity Level: Very Active
Maximum Passengers: 20

Join Western alumni and friends on our sixth annual cycling trip led by Western's President Emeritus, Dr. Paul Davenport. Each year from 2007 on, Paul has led an annual Kinesiology cycling trip as a credit course for students. Now retired and living in France, we are pleased to have Paul leading these trips for our alumni groups as well.

Our 2015 itinerary will be much like the trip offered in 2010 and 2011, cycling the Loire region, going west from Tours, France. You will see some of the great chateaux of the Loire Valley, take part in wine-tastings and learn about the history and culture of Touraine. We typically select three-star hotels for a comfortable stay each night.

This is a trip for physically active alumni and friends who can bike up to 40 km a day. The time on the bikes is broken during the day for a sandwich lunch and visits to the various sites.

Your journey will conclude with three days in Paris, where we visit the Orsay and Louvre museums, and take an evening boat cruise on the Seine.
