La Réole / Marmande Canal des 2 Mers by bike - Atlantic / Mediterranean sea
Waytypes of the stage
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.
