Bordeaux Cycling Tour

This easy grade ride follows the Canal de Garonne cycle path towards the Atlantic coast through the heart of Tarn-et-Garonne - the market garden of the Midi-Pyrénées known locally as 'the land of a thousand and one flavours'. Starting in the riverside town of Moissac we follow the route of an ancient waterway through historic towns and villages on our way to Bordeaux. There is a special focus on the regional food and drink specialities with included regional cuisine and AOC Buzet and Brulhois wine tastings. The area is famed for its abundance of fresh fruit and delicacies include duck confit, black truffles and goat's cheese; complimented by an amazing array of wines.

Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 211 km over five days (an average of 39km per day) with a further optional 147 km available. Two of the cycling days are circular routes and therefore optional. We travel mainly on the Canal de Garonne paved cycle path (80%) and quiet country lanes (20%). The terrain is mostly flat with gently rolling countryside on the optional circular rides. Maps are provided to cycle individually or in groups while the tour leader drives the support vehicle, except on circular routes when the tour leader will cycle with the group. We have graded the route as easy with moderate options.
