Cycling in France

The pictures are of the Bordeaux to Lacanau-OcĂ©an greenway, which runs along an old railway trackbed. Sylvie and I didn't go very far along it from Lacanau - just a few km to the lake at Le Moutchic - but you can get a flavour of the trail from these pics, I think. It even has a departmental road number: it is the D801. It has been very hot here, and riding through the forests gives you a chance to cool off a little. Find out more from this French website:
