Bordeaux
From Blaye, cross the Gironde Estuary by ferry to Lamarque, in the midst of the Médoc, a peninsula packed with some of the greatest wine territories (or appellations) in the world. A provisional route takes you along quiet roads through the Médoc’s vines, fields and heaths to the edge of the city of Bordeaux, at Blanquefort. From here, a cycle track leads you gently to the heart of the great wine town. Bordeaux is a splendid, dynamic city, its exceptional architectural heritage listed as a World Heritage Site. Amidst its grand quarters, sample its many lively, trendy cultural and gastronomic offerings.

The route

Provisional route.
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.
