Toulouse - Bordeaux

Along Garonne and Canal du Midi.

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 ”Voie Verte” 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 practical for your access.

Itinerary

Arrival in Toulouse and check-in at your hotel. You’ll have the time to try your bikes. You can visit Toulouse by bike or by foot.

It’s at the heart of the town that ends the canal of the Midi from Toulouse to Sète and starts the beautiful Garonne canal. Your first stage will lead you to Moissac, the centre of roman art, on the way to Santiago de Compostella. The abbaye and the cloister are part of the UNESCO world’s heritage. It’s the place whre the Tarn and the Garonne meet.

The day starts in an orchard and vineyard of Chasselas landscape; you continue along the Garonne canal to the beautiful city of Agen (famous for its prunes and its beautiful city centre). You’ll pass the superb bridge of Pont Canal d’Agen and continue on the shadowed banks until Sérignac.

You continue along the green canal where you will have many opportunities to stop; you will pass the town of Damezan, founded in 1259. At the Mas d’Agenais don’t miss the visit of the roman church!

The canal will lead you to Réole, that’s where you leave the Garonne canal to take the green line (green line of Roger Lapébie, a former cyclist, winner of the Tour de France in 1937). Some small roads will take you to Sauveterre de Guyenne, a beautiful historical town with its 4 gates and the fort, founded in 1281. It’s also the centre of the wine-making canton of the Entre Deux Mers (AOC, guarantee of quality of wine). You continue through the vineyard of Bordeaux until Frontenac. If you stop in St Martin de Lerm you will cross Sauveterre tomorrow.

A beautiful stage between Dordogne and Gironde, through the vineyard of the Entre Deux Mers. You will pass by Sauve Majeure (former abbaye founded in 1070) and the fortified town of Créon.

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.

Toulouse - Bordeaux
Eine sehr schöne Reise am Kanal entlang, sorgfältig ausgewählte Unterkünfte. Glück mit dem Wetter hatten wir auch - keinen Regen, dafür trockene Hitze. Die Reiseunterlagen waren gut, ein Stadtplan für Bordeaux fehlte allerdings, der aber problemlos im Internet gefunden und dann ausgedruckt werden kann. Die Räder waren auch gut, ein Tacho mit Kilometerzähler wäre angenehm gewesen. Falls es mal zu einer Panne kommt, bietet Pierre qui roule eine Hotline und schickt dann einen Mechaniker, der das Rad wieder flott macht. Die Zimmer in Sérignac, Les Tarres de bas und Frontenac waren riesig, und die "Gastmütter" in Les Tarres de bas und Frontenac begrüßten uns wie lange vermisste Familienmitglieder. Einige der Unterkünfte boten auch einen Swimmingpool - also Abkühlung nach einem langen Tag auf dem Rad. Hier ein Geheimtipp für Leute, die in Toulouse essen gehen möchten: Les saveurs bio, ein ausgezeichnetes Restaurant mit leckerem Essen, netter Bedienung und der Möglichkeit, im Freien zu sitzen. Der Abschnitt nach Sauveterre war etwas schwieriger, weil es vom Kanal weg ging und die Strecke nicht beschildert war, dafür war es mit einigen Anstiegen abwechslungsreicher. Schön war das letzte Stück auf der Piste Roger Lapébie (abgesehen von der riesigen Baustelle vor Bordeaux). Genau die richtige Reise für Leute, die ein bisschen Sport mit Kultur und gutem Essen verbinden wollen.
