270 km along the canal by bike from Bordeaux to Toulouse

Bordeaux, a splendid city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, makes for one glorious starting point on the Canal des 2 Mers à Vélo cycle route. Once you’ve crossed the mighty Garonne River, you enter the Entre-Deux-Mers vineyards via a great cycle track. At Sauveterre-de-Guyenne, join a quiet road to reach the Canal de Garonne near the town of La Réole. Then a greenway runs alongside the canal, shaded by planes, up to Agen then Toulouse This section of the Canal des 2 Mers à Vélo cycle route is entirely on greenways, enabling you to appreciate the countryside to the full. Head a bit away from the Canal de Garonne to enjoy charming, hilly terrain with hints of Tuscany.
