Former railway track transformed into a cycling route, the Roger Lapébie trail (the country’s child, winner of the Tour de France 1937) will take you from Latresne to Sauveterre-de-Guyenne through vineyards, forests and villages. Everything has been thought of for your comfort on the whole route: the “bike relay points” welcome you to take a break, snack a piece or repair a puncture.
The itinerary of the Canal des 2 mers à vélo is set up as a virtually continuous greenway from the quays of Bordeaux to Sauveterre-de-Guyenne. We first take the trail Lapébie, then small quiet roads to the Canal Garonne near La Réole.
