The Canal de Garonne by bike : La Réole / Marmande

[ Cycle routes Canal des deux mers à vélo ] [ The canal de Garonne by bike from Bordeaux to Agen ]
  • 21.5 km
  • famille Level Family

The cycle route joins the Canal de Garonne close to the startling Musée de l’Allumette (Match Museum) at Fontet. This place’s port and outdoors recreation centre make it a great spot to stop before starting out on the greenway beside the canal. This stage is calm, but the perched village of Meilhan-sur-Garonne draws you up to it for fabulous views. For a further short detour, visit the town of Marmande, which conceals some surprises.

The route

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.

Côtes du Marmandais

cote du marmandaisThe vineyards of the département (French county) of Lot-et-Garonne count among the oldest in France. An exceptional panoply of grape varieties and styles of wine is produced across this département. The vines of the Côtes du Marmandais spread along the banks of the Garonne River. This wine-producing area has roots going back to Roman times. It won separate AOC status in 1990. Traditional grape varieties are grown here, as well as rare ones, like abouriou, the appellation’s emblematic variety.
