Bordeaux is a very well equipped city for cycling where you can pedal from one bank to the other, stroll through the historic centre and discover the main tourist attractions.
From there,you can easily get to the Arcachon basin by taking advantage of the cycle paths. In the kingdom of easy cycling, you can travel as a family in a dream setting, through the pine forests, along the coast or the lake shores.
If you feel like it, continue your journey towards the Médoc on small easy roads that run along the estuary to Soulac or meander through the vineyards. As the seasons change, you can admire amazing colour changes.
Cycling along the Dordogne, you can enjoy a wide variety of landscapes and reach Saint-Émilion. The roads are steeper but you will be rewarded with breathtaking cultural landscape.
Continue your journey in the Entre-deux-Mers, crossed by the Garonne river. Between vineyards and forests, you will ride on small roads or cycle paths: a little hilly in the north, but less so in the south.
Water, vines and forests are therefore characteristic of this beautiful region in which you can shine without any notable difficulties, although electric bicycles are not forbidden! The possibilities are endless and, like us, you will never tire of returning to it. And each time, we will build a unique journey together that will make you discover new wonders.
