Damazan
Agen
The Canal des 2 Mers à Vélo cycle route continues along the greenway beside the Canal de Garonne, passing through the very lively port of Buzet-sur-Baïse. You reach Agen itself via one of the longest canal-bridges in France, at 600m. The town is both capital of the département (French county) of Lot-et-Garonne and French capital of prunes… and it conceals many other curiosities, which you can discover in the remarkable monuments in the historic centre.

The route

This stage takes you along an easy, signposted greenway.

Link Canal de Garonne / Vallée du Lot
From Damazan, it’s possible to join the Voie Verte de la Vallée du Lot greenway, which leads to the splendid town of Cahors via a delightful 150km route. The starting point for this route lies 500m from the exit to the village, beside the canal. After following some small roads with little traffic, cross the Garonne River via a road bridge (dismount from your bike and lead it by hand along the pavement), then follow a busier road taking you to Aiguillon, dominating the Garonne and Lot Valleys.
