Cy­cling in the En­tre-deux-mers

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

Sit­u­ated be­tween the rivers Dor­dogne and Garonne, the En­tre-deux-mers re­gion is best ex­plored by bi­cy­cle, on the “Roger Lapé­bie” cy­cle path (named af­ter a na­tive of the re­gion and win­ner of the 1937 Tour de France cy­cle race) and on the “Canal En­tre 2 Mers à Vélo” cy­cle route. Bastide towns, abbeys (in­clud­ing UNESCO listed Sauve-ma­jeure), for­ti­fied mills and an­cient vil­lages dot this re­gion which was dear to the heart of the writer François Mau­riac and the painter Henri de Toulouse-lautrec.
