Créon
Leaving Bordeaux, after crossing the St-Jean Bridge, a cycle track that runs in part alongside the Garonne leads to Latresne, where you join the beautiful Roger Lapébie cycle track. It’s named after the winner of the Tour de France in 1937 and is remarkably well laid out along a former railway line, with several dedicated stops in former railway stations. The way heads to Créon. This place, set around its arcaded central square, a remnant of a former bastide fortified town, is well worth a detour.

The route

Provisionally, the route starts from Bordeaux SNCF train station. Head down to the Pont St-Jean Bridge, accessible via a ramp, to cross the Garonne, whose east bank you then follow for a while. From Latresne, the Roger Lapébie cycle track is tarmacked, well-equipped and safe.
