Upon entering the Gironde, a new world reveals itself to travellers on La Vélodyssée. La pointe de Grave also marks the end of the Médoc, a landscape of great variety, depending on whether you cross the west coast or the estuary and the vineyards. Pleasant cycle lanes wind their way from Verdon to the charming Soulac-sur-Mer with its lively streets and pretty seaside villas, we take the trail towards Montalivet. To the north of this stage, the sea entices you in for a cooling dip; to the south there is a more forested area which is most pleasant in fine weather.

Itinerary

Cross the Royan estuary at the Pointe de Grave: ferry open daily, with several trips in peak season.  Landing stage at Royan Port: 05 46 38 35 15. https://www.transgironde.fr/en

The cycle lanes (except in Soulac and Montalivet) are sometimes quite narrow and with several long but gentle inclines, but there are panoramic views over the Cordouan Lighthouse.

They did it!
