You can switch up your cycling trip along Euro Route 1 – La Vélodyssée by going down the Gironde Estuary past Talmont-sur-Gironde with its beautiful 11th century church that overlooks the estuary. Below is the current ferry timetable from Blaye to Lamarque if you decide to do just that!

Next up is the picturesque port of Mortagne-sur-Gironde and this is followed by 50km or so through the vineyards and sunflower fields down to Blaye which has a UNESCO World Heritage Citadel that was built by the Marquis of Vauban in the 17th Century.

From Blaye you can get the ferry across the Gironde to Lamarque from where you can cycle through some of the Médoc to Lacanau and rejoin the Euro Route 1.

NB It is obligatory to wear a mask on board at the moment.
