From Lamarque, head for Arcins, following a quiet road crossing through vineyards, passing via the Château de Malescas.
At Arcins, take care crossing the D 2 road to reach Moulis-en-Médoc, followed by Avensan. Be especially careful cycling along the D 208 road from Avensan to Arsac. Continue to Le Pian-Médoc, and on to the north side of Blanquefort, where you join a cycle track at the round-about by the Lycée Agro-Viticole. This cycle track leads into the heart of Bordeaux, via the quays alongside the Garonne River.
