Dust off your Velo and Walking Shoes ! – Friday 19th January
Cyclists and Walkers
Enjoy some leisurely cycling or walking and explore a very different area of our region (not a vineyard in sight!) or come for a walk or just come for lunch ! A gentle cycle ride on tarmac and in two separate 10km stages starting on the rive droite of the Garonne opposite Ile d’Arcins. Before we start, we will fortify ourselves with croisantes, coffee and wine and also take a freshment stop on the way !
We cycle alongside the Garonne and then inland into the Entre deux Mers to Latresne to join the Piste Cyclable Roger Lapébie which was originally a railway line,
The cycle way is smooth and runs through delightful wooded countryside and farm land with many opportunities to stop.
At the same time as the cyclists are enjoying the countryside and refreshment stops there will be a separate walking group.
A leisurely lunch at Bistrot de la Pimpine which is an old railway station in Lignan de Bordeaux, now converted to a simple bar/restaurant.
Some cyclists suitably fortified after lunch may wish to have the full experience and cycle the complete path to Lacanau but this is not compulsory !
Walkers suitably fortified can struggle the few steps back to their cars !
Lunch is a good value ‘honest’ menu de jour for 15:00€ including wine
This is a repeat of a previous event where we had some who just came for lunch and contributed to a great atmosphere.
Some cyclists suitably fortified after lunch may wish to have the full experience and cycle the complete cycle path to Lacanau but this is not compulsory ! Walkers suitably fortified can struggle the few steps back to their cars !
No need to dress up, lycra permitted and totally optional!
