The Gironde estuary and its vineyards by bike

Short trip

Between Royan and Bordeaux by bike

This enticing section of the Canal des 2 Mers à Vélo cycle route transports you from the seaside atmosphere of the postwar resort of Royan to the splendid Ancien Régime quays of Bordeaux. The route running beside the Gironde Estuary is not completely laid out at time of writing, so you have to deal with a few stretches of small, rough, steep tracks for the moment. Or opt for the easier provisional link leading south of the Gironde Estuary via Lacanau, on to Bordeaux.
