Itinerary

Enjoy the charms of the old city bathed with warm and sweet lights, with its old towers, remains from the old defensive walls.

From the famous towers of La Rochelle harbour, ride along the cycling path by the ocean leading to Châtelaillon-Plage, a seaside city. Then you will reach the astonishing city of Rochefort, following the river banks of the Charente.

Then you will ride along the cycling path to the salt pan crossed by several small canals. Marennes is the first oyster farming pool in Europe: a perfect stopover to discover regional food!

Continue your journey between salt pans and the Seudre estuary. After Palmyre, "the Coast of Beauty" is a spectacular step thanks to an amazing cycling path with a sea view until Royan and its Belle Epoque villas.

On a nice shaded cycling track along the sea, your journey will take you from paths to small roads before getting to Talmont sur Gironde. Then you will cycle until Mortagne-sur-Gironde harbour.

The numerous small marinas along the river banks of the Gironde are perfect stopping places. You will join Blaye by a beautiful cycling path and will leave Charent Maritime to continue the route of the channel of 2 seas in Gironde.

Cross the Gironde estuary to join Lamarque and the region of the Médoc and its famous vineyards. You will reach the heart of Bordeaux, riding along small roads in the middle of the vineyard.

After breakfast your tour ends in Bordeaux.
