Day 6: Samur
Friday: Saumur

Time for honesty: The last day was scheduled to be a "century" ride—that's 100 kilometers through hilly terrain. We decided to tour Saumur instead. Turned out to be a good decision because it rained off and on during the day. First, we went to the French Cavalry Museum (above left) Then wandered through the city until the wine museum caught Karen's eye (above right) At times, the weather was great and the Loire River (below left) looked great. Other times, it poured. The tourists who took the horse-drawn wagon tour ended up seeing more umbrella than city (below right)
