La Réole / Marmande Canal des 2 Mers by bike - Atlantic / Mediterranean sea
Part of this stage is shared with motorized traffic, going on small roads from La Réole to Pont Berrat. Then you join the well laid-out, signposted greenway along the Canal de Garonne.
Off the route
To reach the town of Marmande there are two options: from Pont-des-Sables, following the signposted cycle track alongside the very busy D 933 road for 6km; or, from Pont-de-Fourques, 2km further on, follow quiet roads with very little traffic that take you back close to the Garonne River, which you then have to cross via the D 933 road to reach the centre of Marmande – count 7km in all for this second option.
