Bordeaux - Toulouse

The Green Line and the Garonne Channel.

You’ll follow the Garonne canal, the extension of the Canal du Midi that connects Toulouse to the Mediteranean Sea. This sention is called the “Canal des Deux Mers” (the canal of the two seas), that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediteranean Sea: a great itinerary between vineyards and medieval villages, along the Garonne. You will gently cross beautiful towns and cultural sites like Moissac… and don’t forget the gastronomy, inescapable in this region!

A wonderful itinerary! Everything starts in Bordeaux and on the green line on 50km to Sauveterre de Guyenne and by country of Sauterne, 26km of small roads to Réole, you’ll follow the Garonne canal until Toulouse.This flat itinerary can be done in both ways. You can choose the one that is more pratical for your access.

Itinerary

Arrival in Bordeaux and check-in in your hotel, you can get started with your bikes. You can either visit Bordeaux by bike or by foot.

You leave Bordeaux on a cycle path. Between Dordogne and Gironde, by the city of Bastide de Créon, la Sauve Majeure (former Benedictine abbey).

If you continue to St Martin:

You cross the beautiful medieval village of Sauveterre de Guyenne, a beautiful historical town with 4 gates and its fortified town founded in 1281. It’s also the county of the canton of Entre Deux Mers (AOC). The path is entirely on a cycle lane and on the green line named “Roger Lapébie” after the famous cyclist, winner of the Tour de France in 1937.

From Frontenac to Sauveterre de Guyenne, by the green line (the bastid worths a tour), and Sauveterre de Guyenne à la Réole by small raods for 26km, after that you reach the cycle path of the Garonne canal that you will follow until Fouques sur Garonne or the Mas d’Agenais.

At the Mas d’Agenais, don’t miss the visit of the beautiful roman church that contains a real treasure: an authentic Rembrandt. Continue along the green canal where youwill have plenty of opportunities to stop. You pass by the town of Damezan, founded in 1259. The rest of the day continues just like the canal: calm and gentle until the village of Sérignac.

You continue along the Garonne Canal, you pass by the superb bridge of Pont Canal d’Agen with a stop in the historical city centre of Agen. The day continues along the canal until Moissac, centre of roman art, on the Santiago de Compostella Way. The abbaye and the cloister are part of the UNESCO world’s heritage. Moissac’s landscape is dominated with orchards and vineyards of the famous Chasselas. This is the place where the Tarna the Garonne meet.

The Garonne and its canal will lead us into the heart of Toulouse (« la ville Rose », the pink city) at the end of 56 locks of the Garonne canal.

Tour character

Easy to average. Stages from 29 to 67km per day according to the program, 2 to 5h bike per day. The terrain is flat. From Bordeaux, the route profile has a few ascents and descents but it becomes flat when you reach the canal.

jederzeit empfehlenswert
Fahrräder: Ausrüstung u. funktionell hervorragend; Reiseunterlagen: genau u. detailliert, ein Hinweis auf grosse Baustellen ausgangs Bordeaux wäre hilfreich gewesen. Unterkünfte: insbesondere diejenigen in Saint Martin de Lerm La Lézardière, in Le Mas d'Agenais Domaine de Méroc u. Hotel Le Prince Noir in Serignac s/G waren eine Bereicherung.
