Orléans is a city in the Centre of France. It is extremely difficult to get out of if not dropped off in a decent spot for traffic heading out of the city and everywhere seems to be a continuation of a suburb or industrial complex. Jason has got stuck here for hours quite a few times.
Try to get as far out of the city centre as you can, its a little comparable to Paris but not as huge.
The only advice that can seemingly be found is on hitchbase - Take the bus number 8 (=> going to "Herveline") , and get out the bus just after it turn left (when you are really out of the city, after "l'avenue des droits de l'hommme") then go back to the roundabout and go straight: it's really easy for the drivers to stop because they can park safely on the righ.
