CANAL DE GARONNE / CANAL DES DEUX MERS
The two canals together create the 433km long Canal des Deux Mers (Two Seas Canal) and it is possible to cycle all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea on signposted cycle routes. This is a fantastic way to discover this beautiful, and still little known, part of France. It is mainly flat and therefore a very accessible route for all levels of cyclist.
Many people start in Bordeaux and use the Roger Lapebie bike path to join the canal in La Réole. This converted train line takes cyclists all the way from Bordeaux to Sauveterre de Guyenne on a beautiful traffic free path through rolling countryside. There is then just a short section on roads between Sauveterre and La Réole.
A lot of previous customers have biked from Bordeaux to Toulouse and have all loved their trip. It is a really great way to visit the area and definitely gives a sense of achievement at the end.
