Day 2 of the bike tour was a lot shorter, 14km. We started by looking through the Chateau d'Usse.

The castle is apparently the one that inspired the Sleeping Beauty story. It's a pretty huge castle, and like a lot of them was added to at various stages of its life. It took a few hours to get around the whole thing.

We got started on the 14km bike ride after the walk through the castle. It was another great day weather wise, and we crusied into a small village and got some lunch supplies.

After lunch we made the rest of the ride to Chinon through vineyards and farm lands. Chinon is a bigger town in the Loire Valley. Our hotel was the Hotel de France in the middle of town, we arrived in the late afternoon. We sampled some wines in the local square and wandered the town.
