A new venue to welcome cyclists in Tours

  • Eric Mangeat
It’s brand new, it’s the Maison du vélo! Opened in July 2017, “Accueil Vélo Rando – Maison du Vélo” is a multi-service cycling centre in Tours right next to the train station and tourist office.

Why open the Maison du Vélo?

To improve the welcome for cycling tourists, both those visiting as well as local cyclists. In this innovative, friendly, connected and unique space you will find everything you need to prepare or improve your stay:
  • Practical and tourist information,
  • A workshop for maintaining or repairing your bike yourself,
  • Left luggage lockers,
  • Facilities for resting, eating or having a shower,
  • A free station for charging your electric bike (or mobile phone) four times faster than with a standard charger, thanks to the region’s first e-bike charging station!
Situated in the heart of the city and hosted by three staff members, the Maison du Vélo is open all year round. Information: Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm (winter) and every day from 10am to 8pm (summer)
